Dave Pomfret

David’s work in the sports and fitness industry has spanned the last three decades. Following an extensive athletic career in track and field, David specialized in the pole vault at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, PA where he received a B.S. in Biology. David moved from his home state of New York to the small city of San Luis Obispo, CA in 2001 to continue his pole vaulting career and pursue a Master’s Degree in Kinesiology from Cal Poly State University. During his time as a graduate student, David spent two years managing and revitalizing the PolyFIT Exercise Testing and Fitness Prescription Program at Cal Poly.

While falling in love with San Luis Obispo, David spent the next five years developing a successful personal training business with clients ranging from teenage athletes to 70+ seniors. Following his passion to educate and inspire, David was hired as the Head Assistant Track and Field Coach and part-time faculty instructor at Cuesta College. David has been able to mentor aspiring student athletes and facilitate their access to scholarships and four-year universities through his comprehensive training and conditioning programs.

In the fall of 2006, David created Equilibrium Fitness, Inc. and purchased The Studio Fitness for Women. David saw purchasing The Studio Fitness for Women, Inc. as a unique opportunity in the health conscious community of San Luis Obispo. Additionally, it was a great place to launch Equilibrium Fitness for Women, a comprehensive and integrated weight management and performance program that promotes total wellness by nurturing the whole person: mind, body, and spirit. Additional personal training sessions are held for men, women, and couples at off-site facilities.

in 2012, David married his wife, and business partner, Brittany Pomfret, and in 2015 they welcomed their son, Samson. Brittany and David run Equilibrium Fitness for Women together, maintaining the family atmosphere that makes Equilbrium the tight-knit community that it is.

David’s clients benefit from his exceptional knowledge, expertise and professionalism, and his ability to deliver safe, effective and creative training programs. His philosophy of training the whole person ensures a truly excellent experience for all of his clients.


Brittany Pomfret

Brittany is a fourth generation San Luis Obispo native and relishes the opportunity to change the lives of the women of the Central Coast through health and fitness. With a strong background in dance, Brittany has always had a passion for movement. While completing her Bachelors of Science in psychology from Cal Poly, she fell in love with group fitness and began teaching group exercise.

After becoming certified in numerous fitness disciplines, including Pilates, Yoga, Body Combat (cardio-kickboxing), Body Flow, Body Step, Body Jam, and Body Pump, she became a certified Personal Trainer in order to pursue her love of fitness on a more intimate level.

Brittany excels at working with clients during life’s biggest changes. From brides to moms-to-be, Brittany fell in love with creating balance and health for women whose lives were transitioning. After pursuing doula training, she realized she could meld her passion for health and fitness along with prenatal and postpartum well-being into a program that could help moms and moms-to-be have stronger pregnancies, easier recoveries, and greater levels of fitness after baby.

Her clients appreciate the personal connection and whole body wellness that Brittany promotes. Brittany has a unique ability to make any client feel comfortable (even her teeniest 3 and 4 month clients during Mommy and Me), while helping women achieve real results that last.
