    reset, rebuild, reorganize

    As a multifaceted and synergized facility our main goal is to reset, reorganize and rebuild you in a way that moves you forward into a better life. We are based on the understanding that life happens, and as we go through our different experiences, it is our Body that absorbs and stores the excess energy and stress. Without the appropriate management of these energies and stresses our Bodies become stiff, uncomfortable and eventually un–well. Coaching you through each step of your process allows your ABS Life Studios providers to integrate this belief on a mental, emotional and physical level. Our family-style approach to the workplace gives you a close-knit, loving, and supportive environment to grow. Come as you are, leave as who you want to be!

    our philosophy

    It is at the complete and final phase of successful destruction that the nothingness from which creation begins, is born. Creation begins with destruction; the breaking down of the old and the organizing and re-building of the new. If we are going to re-create our Self we have to destroy it first. This is the journey.

  • Testimonials

    Read what our clients are saying:

    Sal Di Stefano came into my life about nine years ago. He was just starting ABS Fitness and offered me a free personal training session. Well, here we nine years later and not only did he become my personal trainer, he became my mentor and inspired me at the age of 53 to become a personal trainer too. It was through his knowledge, passion and inspiration for fitness and well being that I found a passion I never knew existed.

    I can truly say that I have never met anyone like Sal. His love for people and his passion for life are infectious; you just can’t help but want to be a part of what ever he has going.

    I have spent the past four years of my life suffering from severe debilitating migraines and seen more doctors, nurses, and specialist than I can count. Devon and the entire ABS wellness community are unique and special in a way that none of those doctors ever were. Devon does not just massage and manipulate muscles but helps me on the path to healing and understanding in a comfortable and loving space. She is a talented massage therapist, and a generous, unique, and loving individual who has become an extraordinary friend and mentor and because of her I have decided to go to school to become a Massage Therapist. I have been migraine free since joining the ABS community and am excited to see this unique and amazing approach to care grow.

    Taylor - San Jose, CA

    I've been a bit lazy and indulgent recently, but today pulled it together and left for a nice long walk. Right out the door my calves and feet started hurting, cramping kind of. I paid attention to my breathing and sent it down my legs, and the pain went away! I continued 5 miles through the park, past the lake, along the creek, listening to music on this lovely winter afternoon. So I wanted to say thanks. You taught me that. I really enjoy your class and learning from you.

    My name is Jim Howell. I am an active 65 year man. I swim two miles daily and use a bicycle for most of my routine local transportation. I started training with Sal Di Stefano in October of 2010, at a body weight of 132 lbs. My goal was to increase strength and to gain lean body mass. Ten months later my weight had increased to 152 lbs. We started training back squats with a shakey 45 lb barbell and today my personal best is 185 lbs. My dead lift started not a whole lot heavier and I am now lifting 205 lbs with a straight bar and 255 lbs with a trap bar. Having a scoliosis and history of back issues, I never would have imagined such dramatic improvements in both strength and posture possible. As impressive as the physical growth that I have enjoyed from Sal's training is, it is dwarfed by the personal growth that I credit to Sal, and the friendship that his training has inspired. He has truly exceeded my expectations.
