At Gut Check Fitness Sacramento, each ever-changing workout leads participants into the great outdoors, where they discover the true meaning of ?gut check,? a military term used to denote a test of courage, character, or physical resemblance to Santa Claus.

Though many of the maneuvers involve dumbbells, the classes? main piece of equipment is the earth, which provides hills for climbing, gravity for resistance, and solid ground for sprints and bodyweight exercises. In addition to basking in the trainers? shouts of encouragement, the group cheers one another toward each milestone, fostering friendships while creating an ongoing incentive to achieve.
Joe Decker, the founder of Gut Check Fitness, isn?t your ordinary fitness trainer. He might just be the planet?s buffest human, at least according to Guinness World Records.

Today, his boot-camp program, Gut Check Fitness, helps exercisers tackle goals that are just as lofty with outdoor workouts that have won top honors from CityVoter.
Candles flicker and a fireplace roars near the entrance to Body Heat Hot Pilates & Yoga, signaling that balmy temperatures warm the classrooms within. The thermostat reaches at least 95 degrees during the studio?s classes, which include flowing yoga routines that strengthen the entire body and Pilates mat workouts whose isometric exercises sculpt the limbs and core. In addition to promoting relaxation, the heat makes muscles more pliable, which helps bodies to explore their full range of motion as they stretch and balance. Pores sweat throughout the workout, removing bodily toxins and waste products such as lactic acid and carbon dioxide. To keep the space smelling as fresh as a mentholated dunk tank, staffers sanitize the eco-friendly floors between each session. After class, students can unwind in showers stocked with complimentary towels, peruse a boutique filled with clothing, lotions, and yoga mats, or sniff each of the studio?s flower arrangements.
