Serving others to expand their human capacity, realize their true potential, achieve optimal health, and become better humans. This is my calling; to improve our health care system one life at a time.

Our Story

Before BLOCK, we owned the highest ranking fitness studio in Pasadena, CA, Copper Moose Fitness. It was a thriving gym, with an amazing community and culture.


We closed December 2018, to move to Tucson,

and raise our son here, with the rest of his family.

We are excited, proud, and honored to bring our expertise to the community of

Oro Valley with our new brand and state of the art facility. 

Welcome to our community.

Welcome to our neighborhood.

Welcome to our BLOCK.
