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. In fact, Brandon played football at the University of Louisville and even helped the Cardinals win the Orange Bowl in 2006. 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 certified instructors of Fitness Battalion move CrossFit out of the box and into the urban wild. Their boot-camp classes meet at five parks throughout the city, making use of hills, benches, and playground equipment to support the same exercise moves you might see in a CrossFit gym. Students heft their own bodyweight and run up hills during routines that change constantly, yet remain scalable to any experience level.
They also have a traditional CrossFit gym of their own (called a "box" in CrossFit parlance), where students take on the workout of the day ("WOD") under their coach's supervision. On Ramp courses teach beginners the fundamental movements of the style—such as squats, deadlifts, and presses—and regular group sessions emphasize motivation through camaraderie. To supplement these programs, trainers host private workout sessions, yoga classes, and a running club.
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. In addition to maintaining a strong focus on fitness and nutrition, they help clients consider which multivitamins, supplements, or radioactive serums from outer space might be most helpful as they get into prime physical shape. Body Design University also offers hands-on personal-training-certification courses that prepare students for the American Council on Exercise (ACE) certification exam.
