The FEM Method, created by Temple Fitness co-founder Kelly Barbera, consists of three methods: Empowered, Firm, and Centered. After a warm-up, students are subjected to two strength elements, a fat-burning session, and fluid stretching and core work. All three methods are included in each class, which varies from day to day.
“This is not a gym,” Kelly Barbera told Southern Exposure Magazine in 2010. “This is a boutique-style studio where everybody knows everybody.” Kelly, a former acrobat, and her husband, Joey—a former wrestler and magician who, with the help of his twin brother, performed a successful disappearing act in Las Vegas—run Temple Fitness. In their cozy orange-and-highlighter-green space bedecked with inspirational quotes, the two line the walls with everything comprehensive fitness programs need, from kettlebells to a room dedicated to TRX equipment. The studio wears many hats, with the two designing an assorted handful of fitness and health modalities: women's-only FEM Method classes, personal training, CrossFit, men's strength camp, and nutritional planning.
Together, they push exercisers through routines characterized by an abundance of positive feedback and motivation, a hallmark of their gym. Periodically, the two open the facility to host Able Youth nonprofit boot camp for kids confined to wheelchairs.
