Jon Chapetta – Owner and Head Coach

Jon has been coaching people for 15 years and he loves helping Fitness4ward members reach their goals. He moved to San Diego in 2007 and got his B.S in Biology with the intention of going to medical school.  He coached people to be fitter while in college and soon realized that he loved working with people and giving them the tools to become physically and mentally stronger.  He found that many of his clients were coming off blood pressure, diabetes, and depression medication.  It was at that moment where he decided to pursue passion in coaching people to become healthier and fitter instead of going to medical school.

He founded Fitness4ward in 2010 and has never looked back.

Dr. Cristina Zheng – Physical Therapist

Dr. Cristina Zheng is a doctor in physical therapy in San Diego, CA.  She graduated from UCLA with a B.S. in Microbiology, Immunology, and Molecular Genetics. She then went on to earn her doctorate in physical therapy from the University of St. Augustine, where she had extensive education in manual therapy and orthopedics.

As an athlete growing up, she had experienced multiple injuries that exposed her to physical therapy. Physical therapy helped her return to competitive sports and led her to pursue a career in bridging the gap between fitness, health, and rehab.

She is passionate about the promotion of wellness, strength & conditioning, and injury prevention, both for herself and her patients.  Her clinical focus is to identify, treat, and prevent athletic injuries in order to help her patients return to their athletic and fitness goals.  Through hosting seminars and workshops, she believes in empowering her patients with tools to self-identify and treat themselves in order to decrease their risk of injuries, increase athletic performance and improve quality of life.
