Founded in January 2008, INTEGRATE Performance Fitness, LLC was created under the principle of sharing the gift of well being through fitness. A life-long athlete, owner Al Painter realized early on in his personal training career that core strength was the common denominator to all successful movement. Thus, he built his philosophy on the proven core-specific methodology to give him the ability to train anyone no matter their ability or objective.
Through weekly core classes and private training sessions, Al is able to take any individual, no matter their sport or fitness goals, to their greatest capacity. This method of training holds a specialty in endurance athletics, such as triathlons, running, road cycling and mountain biking.
This fitness culture can be described in one word: community. We always accomplish more as a team than as an individual. This compliments Al's style of training in a way that makes this approach to fitness as unique as it is effective.

Al holds a degree in Communications with a Journalism concentration from Santa Clara University. He is certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. He is a TRX qualified instructor, a monkii bars Trainer and a Stick Mobility Level 1 Coach. He maintains specialties in corrective exercise (NASM CES) and performance enhancement (NASM PES).
Al began his athletic career when his dad put a baseball glove on his left hand at the age of seven, and has had a lifelong love of our national past time ever since (which includes a trip to the Baseball Hall of Fame!). When he stopped playing hardball on Sundays, cycling became his new passion as he raced both his mountain and road bikes from 2006-2012.
