At Shaping U Personal Fitness, a staff of trainers know firsthand the effort required to slim down, as many have used the gym's training methods to pique their own fitness levels. Morning and evening indoor boot-camp sessions send exercisers on an orbit around a series of stations that may include anything from push-ups, jumping jacks, and squats to bicep curls, back rows, and extreme hopscotching. Exercisers can work at their own paces and intensity levels, and the class's quick-paced regimen promises to stoke the flames of metabolism for optimal fat burning.
For those who prefer a more personalized pumping session, small-group personal-training sessions corral three to five participants as each performs a customized routine overseen by an attentive trainer. Utilizing cardio equipment, free weights, and body-weight exercises, coaches craft new routines for each session in order to prevent muscles from adapting, blasting through traditional exercise plateaus with the speed and force of an elephant driving a segway. Both boot-camp and personal-training clients receive complimentary nutrition counseling and results tracking from Shaping U's staffers, helping them continue on their journey towards a more streamlined shape long after the sessions have ended.

Brad Pugh has followed a healthy diet and exercise plan his whole life—until a few years ago, that is. Frustrated by the time and energy commitment, he decided to take a break from working out, which led to three years of inactivity and 30 extra pounds. As he huffed and puffed his way back to fitness, he resolved to use this experience as an opportunity to help others get back into shape. In 2000, Brad founded Shaping U Personal Fitness, a gym specializes in small-group exercise programs.
A nationally certified personal trainer, Brad earned local renown when he was named the city’s runner-up personal trainer by Birmingham Magazine. Six days a week, he runs indoor and outdoor boot-camp classes as well as personal-training sessions available on a one-on-one or semiprivate basis. Brad helps his clients modify unhealthy eating habits as well by designing meals based on the 14-day detox plan. Healthy meals centering around lean cuts of meat and high-nutrient vegetables are prepared by a chef and delivered to the home.
