A Loyola Corners fitness studio has changed its ownership and name.

As of May 24, Shawsu Workout Studio at 985 Fremont Ave. has become Los Altos Health and Fitness. Rashein Lindsey, who took over majority ownership of the business in March, renamed the fitness center.

Lindsey, who served 15 years in the U.S. Marine Corps, is certified as a personal trainer and sports nutritionist. He opted to rebrand the business to signify the ownership switch.

“It’s a remake – a face-lift, if you will,” said Lindsey, a New Jersey native who is also a board-certified health and nutrition counselor. “We still have the same clients and atmosphere. Our model is pretty much, ‘Come as you are.’ We enjoy working with clients of all ages.”

And while the business may have a new name and owner, Lindsey, who also serves as general manager, said he plans to continue many of the same programs. The studio offers several fitness-related services, including personal training, yoga and Pilates classes and massage therapy, as well as conditioning classes.

Appropriately, the Marine veteran runs the studio’s boot camp classes.

“It’s been a great transition,” said Lindsey, who completed his military career as an aviation analyst in January. “I still bring that motivation and discipline (from the military) to the business and my clients.”

Lindsey is no stranger to the Bay Area. Ten of his 15 years in the military were spent throughout California, with stints at Camp Pendleton and the Marine Corps Air Station in Miramar (near San Diego), as well as three years at Moffett Field in Mountain View.

He conceded that while leaving the military is a major adjustment, it’s one he’s happy to make – and made easier by the familiar surroundings of Los Altos and Mountain View.

“It’s a change but I embrace change,” he said. “It’s like the military – adapt and overcome. I love it and I wouldn’t change it.”
