Fitness 101’s owner and program director, Sean Millhouse, knows how to help clients achieve their fitness goals. An ACE-certified personal trainer for 14 years and co-author of the recent book The Fad Free Fitness Formula, Sean ignites weight-loss regimens with a boot-camp program that gets hearts pumping, muscles lifting, and minds daydreaming of a future in modeling with high-octane, metabolic-based training. The certified trainers apply a two-pronged attack against unwanted weight by supplementing boot camp with nutritional guidance and recipes. Bootcamps are held indoors in an air-conditioned gym, that uses tools such as battle ropes, kettlebells, and suspension trainers.
Instructor Cindy Weller—who holds master-level certifications from Pilates Method Alliance and Pilates Academy International—and her team of nationally certified instructors draw on more than 500 hours of training as they lead private and semi-private Pilates classes. Limited class sizes reduce the chance of getting several students who share the name "Agapithe" and let instructors focus on customizing each workout. When teachers aren't leading sports-performance, rehabilitation, or men's classes, they whip physiques into shape with the Redcord suspension system, mat Pilates, reformer Pilates, tower Pilates, yoga, and ballet classes.
Fit Body Boot Camp instructors guide clients toward their fitness and weight-loss goals at locations throughout the world. They lead group workouts that integrate cardio exercise with resistance training and weight training, keeping sessions varied in order to avoid disheartening plateaus. Nutritional guidance supplements tailored fitness programs to ensure that clients are properly fueled to lose, gain, or maintain their weight.

What inspired you to open a group fitness studio?
As instructor who worked in a gym for several years, I encountered many people who maintained their membership strictly to attend one or two group classes. Thus, they were paying for equipment and programs that they did not utilize. Consequently, I saw a need for a studio that would offer people such as that—as well as the many that do not like the large gym setting—a place to take great fitness classes at a much lesser cost and more intimate environment.
Have you seen any of your students or gym members undergo an inspiring transformation? If so, tell us about it.
From a physical standpoint I have definitely seen weight decrease and strength increase in many clients. But a notable transformation I have witnessed is actually a more mental one. A specific client shared that attending GroupFit classes has "brought a new light into her life." She shared that she feels more confident and is more willing to socialize in groups. And weight was not the issue at all. In fact, she was possibly underweight when starting classes. But, as her physical strength grew, so did her self-confidence. Her husband also attends classes and she has noted that being able to go to classes together has brought new light to the family as a whole. Thus, the "family" feeling of GroupFit is also a positive element of the studio.

Though husband-and-wife co-owners Ty and Missy Beasley are single-minded in their love of personal training, they took different paths to get there. As a soccer player in college, Ty Beasley would provide personal training as a side job to pay for school and sports supplies. He quickly realized how much fun he had in his sessions, and eventually decided to follow in his entrepreneur father's footsteps and open CORE Health & Fitness with Missy. Missy, meanwhile, began her journey in the nutrition realm. After becoming a registered dietitian, the former cheerleader fell into the world of personal training when she helped her sister, a brand-new mother, lose her baby weight and gain a new outlook on life. The experience was inspirational, and she soon decided to become a personal trainer.
Today, the two certified personal trainers lead private and group sessions that incorporate circuit workouts, cardio, strength training, and nutritional guidance to help individuals improve health and drop dress sizes. They also offer a coed outdoor boot camp that includes fitness assessments, diet coaching, and intense motivation, all with challenging workouts that take place five days a week.
