Meet Eric and Laura Bache of Wellfitsd in Pacific Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Eric and Laura Bache.

Wellfitsd is owned and operated by Laura and Eric who have lived in San Diego for the past 30 years and are blessed to be raising their children in American’s finest city. Laura is an accomplished chef and personal trainer devoting her time to the fitness programming and café offerings. Eric, a builder and technology executive, who has spent the last 5 years designing and constructing Wellfitsd’s new facility and will oversee operations.

After many years of planning and construction, Wellfitsd will open in the Fall of 2017. What they came to create is a boutique-style fitness studio/gym and café/juice bar. The yoga studio, café, locker rooms and retail are located on the first level. The 2nd level houses the HIIT studio, personal training studio and open gym weight area. The 3rd level is their Wellfitsd sky lounge were members can eat, drink and socialize in the cool breezes while taking in the city, bay, and ocean views.

Wellfitsd’s mission is about living well with fitness, food and family. Come and be a part of their wellness community, you will love their workouts, enjoy their food and gush over their juices. They are excited to bring family, friends and community together and enjoy their beautiful new facility in North Pacific Beach.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The old gym on Cass Street is San Diego’s 2nd oldest gym circa 1957 and was desperately in need of extensive repairs and upgrades. The property had been remodeled in the early 1980’s and had been very successful until 2002 when the property fell into disrepair and being overcome by newer gyms. The property then lingered for 10 years until Eric began planning and building the new facility.

There was a brief opening in 2012 of the yoga studio but city permit issues forced a closure. Out of this set back Eric began to work on a complete redevelopment of the property, gutting the building in order to add new locker rooms, cafe, roof decks for members to work out and socialize. Along the way Eric met and married Laura. Together with the support of their family, friends and community they look forward to changing lives through fitness, food and family.
