The FEM Method consists of three groups. Barre, yoga, and TRX classes are part of the Centered group, which focuses on core strength, balance, and flexibility. The Firm group is made up of high-intensity, interval-training-based workouts that aim to burn fat and increase cardio. Finally, the Empowered group increases strength with weight lifting.
“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.
