You are already on the right path and I am here to guide you.

You have just taken one of the first steps towards a healthier mind and body. Exercise has many benefits! Improved immune system, improved cardiovascular functioning, better sleep and clearer state of mind, gains in muscular and mental strength, stronger bones, improved lung capacity, decreased risk of metabolic disease, decreased risk of high blood pressure, improved balance and overall wellness are just a few of the benefits of living a fit lifestyle.

These benefits can all be realized over time by following your path to wellness. There is no magical transformation--becoming healthier does not happen overnight. It takes a lot of work and a commitment on your part. It is about making time for you. This is difficult but the reality is that if you feel better about yourself, you will have more energy and time to give to the people and commitments that are important in your life. You will even inspire someone else towards their own path to wellness.

Our goal is for you to enjoy your path one step at a time and to develop the skills to follow it for the rest of your life.... Wellness and fitness will become your way of life. Exercise is not something you do when you have time, but something you do to enhance your time. During exercise, time can be stopped, the aging process slowed, there are no outside thoughts or worries, only the connection with your body--living completely in the moment.

Enjoy your journey...I will be with you every step of the way - Jill Rooks

"Behind every small business, there's a FAMILY story worth knowing."

Jill Rooks, owner of The Energy Lab, has been involved in fitness for as long as she can remember. Her dad used to find her at 5am exercising with favorites on TV, going to the gym with her mom even in the 7th grade, and swimming/water polo through high school and college. Then back to videos and the gym post-college.
Jill's fitness career began while teaching classes at the University of Redlands. She pursued education relentlessly, took every class she could, was one of the first Spinning Certified instructors, took up Pilates and certified with TRX when no one had even heard of TRX yet. Through two pregnancies, weight gained and weight lost, her kids grew up knowing that fitness and exercise were a part of daily living. She was asked to coach for Weight Watchers after successfully embracing their programs, but Jill turned to fitness full-time instead, taught at many gyms, coordinated the group programs, became a personal trainer and transformed her garage into a training center. In 2011, a friend nudged her to create a public space to share her passion with the world.
The Energy Lab is now approaching 5 years of transforming lives, educating, and meeting the needs of a living community. Two years into the business, the studio doubled in size, Jill's husband Sean joined her full-time, additional coaches and instructors were hired. The Energy Lab currently employs 4 team and studio assistants, 12 coaches and instructors, offers one-on-one training, small group training, and over 30 group classes a week, along with goal-setting workshops, nutrition, outdoor adventures, and a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude) Lab Bootcamp. Jill is a master trainer for Jungshin Fitness, Level two Institute of Motion movement specialist, a course director with Faster education, on the Todd Durkin Mastermind Team, Melt Method certified instructor, and her experience with the human body along with hard work and relentless passion has given her the opportunity to work with pre- and post-natal moms, hip, knee and shoulder replacements, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, and everyday living from ages 3 to our member with the most life under his belt being 96.
..."it has been a work in progress over a lifetime taking both the wisdom given from those who have gone before us, especially my Dad, and a vision for a community that celebrates life by moving our bodies. Understanding that where we are today is not yet our finished product and how we take care of our bodies today directly impacts how we live every other day!" Jill Rook

I have been doing a local radio show with Jill and this gal is TALENTED. I respect and admire her fitness knowledge. I took a class and enjoyed the small intimate setting. I also like the workshops and special events. They have created a true fitness family. HIGHLY recommend.

I only recently began coming to the energy lab because I haven't been meeting my fitness goals at my normal gym. The first class and every class I've been to since have been incredible. Jill motivates you to not give up and to step out of your comfort zone, something I have a hard time doing. It has become very clear to me that everyone who comes to the energy lab is a part of a close knit family. Everyone has been very welcoming and supportive as I kick my butt into gear to finally meet my fitness goals. So glad I found this place :)

So , today at the studio we had an awesome workout. We also had a little challenge. At the end of the challenge we were asked to compliment someone. I thought I would also say it here how much I appreciate Shani Diehl and Paul M Hetherington. Both of them inspire and support me to be better every time I go in. It has been the single hardest thing to pull myself out of this rut and I swear without Shani right next to me inspiring me to be better ( because she really truly is awesome!) and Paul being the best at what he does I would not be anywhere close to where I am. Thank you to you both for being you. Life is always better when surround by great people.

This is what I found...a warm welcome by Jill, her husband and her staff. It was obvious from the first visit that The Energy Lab is a place to get healthy and happy. The focus is not on how you look but rather on how you feel! After just three weeks working with Jill, I am enthused and excited to be moving. She is so knowledgeable that I trust her completely. I trust her to lead me to a healthy body without fear of injuring myself. Already, I am gaining strength, endurance and confidence. I love the feeling of accomplishment when Jill encouragingly pushes me and I manage to do to do a little more or try something new. After our workout today, I told Jill that "I haven't had this much fun getting this tired since I was a kid."

The Energy Lab is a life changing place. Jill is an all around amazing person who has so much passion. I always looked forward to every class and always seemed to learn something new. Pilates with Jill was my ultimate favorite! I moved up north and wish I could've brought The Energy Lab with me!

The community of Redlands is better because of what Jill Ruth Rooks and Sean Rooks have created at The Energy Lab. It's a special place and a special family they've created.


Cheryl Carlson said on Feb 2, 2016

There's a handful of us who started in Jill's garage and still continue to work out at The Energy Lab many years later. Jill's passion is present in everything she does and this keeps her business thriving.


Jeannie LaCues said on Feb 2, 2016

Jill is the best personal trainer and the family that she has brought together at The Energy Lab is like no other. The support that I get from the employees and the clients makes this 62 yr old want to be the best I can be! Thanks Jill and Sean for welcoming me into the family! Love to you all!!!!!

I took the Jungshin which uses 41 inch wood swords. Seriously, the MOST fun I've ever had working out!
