The experienced instructors at Streamline Fitness Training realize that every client has different abilities and conditioning goals. That's why they begin personal training sessions with a thorough assessment, including body alignment testing, strength and flexibility testing. This initial meeting helps the professionals devise an effective program, but perhaps more importantly, it serves as the first step toward creating a bond between client and trainer. That bond is how Streamline aims to set itself apart—since they trust their instructors, guests are more likely to achieve their fitness aims. It's a simple philosophy that carries through all of the gym's practices, from boot camps to Zumba classes.
Before he was the head trainer at Total Wellness, Brandon "B-Fit" Cox was a lifelong fitness enthusiast. He developed a passion for physical activity at a young age, so much so that it dictated his lifestyle.

Today, he falls back on all of his experience while helping others get into shape at Total Wellness. Here, Brandon provides group classes and personal training. He strives to aid his clients in achieving healthy weight loss, increasing strength, and improving self-confidence.

The trainers at Body Design University have developed a scientifically based program to help people battle excess weight and lead fuller, healthier lives. They incorporate both resistance and cardio training into each routine, offering encouragement and tips on how to perform each exercise safely.

Body Design University also offers hands-on personal-training-certification courses that prepare students for the American Council on Exercise (ACE) certification exam.

At Zumba Fitness & Health, licensed Zumba instructor Vanessa St. Julien guides students through calorie-burning, muscle-sculpting dance routines set to Latin music. In each one-hour session, up to 200 students throw their arms in the air, sway their hips to the beat, and shake out sweat in workouts far more dynamic than traditional weightlifting or cavalier weight-dropping.
