What?s your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of the job is teaching a child new skills and seeing the expression of pride and accomplishment on their face when they have mastered the skill. This brings joy to my heart.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We have had several of our State, Regional and National Champions start off in our Summer Camps. Who knew? Also, our camp is designed to provide a safe, fun gymnastics and trampoline experience for all levels of athlete, from beginning to National Team members. We provide the highest quality instruction and encouragement in an atmosphere where every child is a champion.
Members of Evolutions Fitness & Wellness receive access to more than 100 weekly fitness classes, rows of cardio and strength-training equipment, a lap pool, plush locker rooms, childcare services, and a slew of other gym perks. That's not what separates Evolution from other facilities, though. Its distinction as the fitness center for Tulare Regional Medical Center does. And the facility's medically minded take on fitness is evident, from the therapy pool and wellness seminars to fitness assessments and doctor vs. doctor bench-press contests.
Art "The Shark" Correa has a history of surmounting life's challenges in pursuit of his business and fitness goals. While earning his bachelor's degree in kinesiology—thereby becoming his family's first college graduate—Art yearned to apply his knowledge toward other people's physical betterment, and gained national certification as a personal trainer. He then used his health expertise to found The Bod-e² Shop, a wellness sanctuary for all fitness levels, and has since trained such elite clients as NFL players Zack Follett and Ricky Manning, Jr.
The Bod-e2 Shop functions as an all-purpose workout zone, manned by personal trainers and instructors who run kickboxing, Zumba, and intense boot-camp classes. Private sessions with the trainers can focus on sports-performance or toning goals, providing encouragement with motivating words rather than drill sergeant mantras or shyly suggestive fireworks displays. The gym's roster of advanced equipment has been highlighted on KMPH's Valley Life, and includes core-tightening air benches alongside Jacob's Ladder, a machine whose cycling rungs simulate climbing.
Through full-body, functional movements, the CrossFit program works out all muscles, from head to toe. The trainers at CrossFit Carpinteria inspire classes of small group sizes to push, pull, and lift their way to fitness, building speed, flexibility, and agility, as well as power. In their bare-bones gym filled with a variety of equipment, patrons focus solely on their exercises. Those exercises change each session and include everything from pull-ups and squats with medicine balls to swinging kettlebells overhead and hopping on and off plyometric boxes.
