Mountainside Fitness and Sonora Quest Laboratories have collaborated to offer a select menu of wellness screens and health profiles to Mountainside Fitness members, empowering them to take control of their health by ordering certain lab tests on their own.

“Health and wellness are the cornerstones of the Mountainside Fitness organization. To be able to provide expanded services, which include blood testing, to our members is just another example of how we want to continue to support their health and fitness goals,” noted Tom Hatten, founder and CEO of Mountainside Fitness.
Hatten added, “Health insights that were once only available to top-level athletes, we can now offer to our members. Sonora Quest Laboratories will arm our customers with inside information on their health that will allow them to optimize their training at our facilities.”
Christina Noble, VP of Business Development with Sonora Quest, said, “As Sonora Quest continues to empower consumers to take more control over their own health, we are proud to partner with Mountainside Fitness and provide a solution that allows their members to play a more active role in managing their health. In this new era of personalized health care consumerism, My Lab ReQuest gives consumers more choice and flexibility in a convenient, efficient and confidential way.”
Mountainside Fitness is a home-grown success story that was started by an Arizona State University student with a small fitness center in Ahwatukee in 1991. The founder turned his sweat equity and hands-on operational efforts into a successful health club with 14 locations around Greater Phoenix and more than 60,000 active members. Just recently, Mountainside Fitness opened at the award-winning and stunning Marina Heights development along Tempe Town Lake.
