About American Fitness

American Fitness Gym was established in 1999 and over the years, it has gone through a good number of changes offering unique services along the way. American Fitness has offered an indoor (yet above ground) swimming pool, Krav Maga classes, Zumba, Yoga, Bootcamps, Pilates, and, as always, good old fashioned weights. 

In 2008, Jay Patel took over as owner and developed a vision for the gym that has continued to grow to this day. Jay enters the gym every day with one thought, “What can I improve here today?” This ethos has guided American Fitness into growing its membership family as well as the gym itself which now offers over 20,000 sq. ft. of training space with the largest assortment of weights and training equipment in any locally founded gym in New Braunfels. 

As American Fitness enters is second decade of life in one of the fasted growing cities in America, it continues to develop local programs for the local residents making this the Best Gym in New Braunfels.
