On November 1st 2012, Gary Rubin opened Point Loma Sports Club and welcomed in our founding members; many whom are still with us today!
Gary had been in the fitness business since the 1980’s, and ran successful clubs in San Diego including Bodyworks and Club La Jolla. After taking a 3 year hiatus to explore personal growth and Life Coaching, he manifested his dream Club and first solo startup of his career, and PLSC was born!
This location was everything Gary had dreamed of in a fitness facility. A former Gymnasium for the Naval Training Center, this impressive building was rich with history and truly made for fitness.
Gary created Point Loma Sports Club with the intention that it would be a culture of inclusion, where everyone feels welcomed and uplifted from the moment they enter. He emphasized positive employee culture and lead with integrity. Gary was an excellent, humble leader and soon enough PLSC developed into a family business as he mentored his daughter through her teenage years and into adulthood.
On November 9th 2020, we sadly lost Gary after a year long battle with terminal cancer. Gary’s daughter and the team at PLSC now carry on his legacy and all the wisdom we were lucky to have gained from his influence. PLSC remains a family owned and operated facility fully committed to the health and well-being our members and staff.
