Our Story

Ukiah Valley Athletic Club is proud to introduce our new journey. We recognize that true health is created from the inside out. After taking over our main Club (UVAC South) in 2017 and then expanding into Main St and School St gym locations, it was made clear to us that we needed to expand our services to more than just Gym Fitness. We knew we had to incorporeal dexfocation, recovery, and Nutrition. Lauren Strangio has been in private practice since August of 2019. Helping hundreds of Mendocino County residents with their health even through the pandemic. The clinical experience during this time created a natural progression into Mendocino Health & Wellness. John, a retired Fire Captain has been open with his story of suffering from PTSD and found different modalities to help him through. John is passionate about Mental Health and thinking of ways to bring first responders together to help facilitate community around the topic. John’s mom, Linda (also an owner at Ukiah Valley Athletic Club) has been suffering from Breat Cancer for a number of years. We are truly passionate about bringing health modalities to our community that will not only help our own family, but will benefit the community in years to come. And of course Deni, who is our powerhouse has been in the fitness industry for over 30 years. We are excited to walk into this next chapter with you!
