Orlando Fit Body Bootcamp's trainers, Kerry Girona and Andrea Laing, both discovered a passion for sports at a young age and translated their hobbies into careers as fitness coaches fueled by the international Fit Body Bootcamp phenomenon. Each 30-minute boot-camp session coalesces cardio, resistance, core, and flexibility moves that together conduct the kinesthetic symphony of the entire body. Kerry and Andrea design a new workout for each class, detouring muscles away from the plateaus that often come with traditional workouts or glacial hiking trips to Antarctica. Workouts convene indoors, where fit-centric accouterments such as suspension trainers and battling ropes intensify workouts, and cushy foam floors keep joints happy and mute.
Along with classes, boot campers better bods with meal plans that can hasten exercise results by promoting internal fettle or by blueprinting a coup to unseat the Twinkie that controls the brain's cravings. With regular attendance, participants often note a slimmer physique highlighted by lean musculature.
Forte Fitness?s owner, Alicia Streger, gathers a crew of trainers whose backgrounds are as diverse as the exercises performed within her boot camps. When not motivating people to achieve their fitness goals, instructors spend time participating in fitness competitions and charity camps within the community, building strong bonds and increasing their accountability and success as co-trainers. Each instructor's background is reflected in his or her physical and mental fitness, and they try to instill that discipline in students through their 21-day Belly Blast Challenges, boot camps, and regular kettlebell courses, all supplemented with nutritional education. For traveling clients who don?t want to lose the rhythm of their routine, the instructors assemble their 20 favorite body-weight exercises, ones that conveniently don?t require using any particular equipment or punching any particular wall.
The staff at Legacy Fitness never yells, berates, or curses at their patrons during Legacy Fitness boot camps. Instead, they motivate them with a sense of humor and positive encouragement. To keep them engaged and prevent them from suffering workout burnout, they lead them in a new routine every day. This ever-varying approach prevents bodies from adapting to the workouts, so muscles must always work their hardest, burning more calories and building strength more quickly. They conduct the camps at multiple indoor and outdoor locations, drawing from the surroundings to guide the workouts. On any given day, students might flip oversize tires end over end and work as a team to push a car down an empty street or do sprints and heave medicine balls in a gym. These functional workouts help patrons tone their entire bodies more safely and effectively than swimming laps in a quicksand pit.
You don?t have to be a professional boxer to benefit from boxing training. In fact, many of the athletes who've trained at Gym Rat Boxing & Fitness have been your run-of-the-mill pro basketball players. Coach Todd?s dynamic, results-driven regimen helps people of all fitness levels?from all-stars to amateurs?attain a wide array of fitness goals without resorting to repetitive gym routines. Instructors use cardio-boosting calisthenics, footwork training, and shadowboxing techniques to help students lose weight and build muscle tone over time. Classes cover basic striking skills as students launch flurries of jabs and crosses at speed bags and heavy bags stuffed with the shirts of high-school bullies. Outside the ring, the gym offers personal-training sessions and intensive boot camps as well as access to the facility's free weights and cardio equipment.
Each of Fit Women of Orlando's four personal trainers shares her own fitness specialty, whether it’s the dance-centric workouts of Peruvian-born Noelia Heelma, or the blend of yoga and tae kwon do mastered by Tina Stoufer. They divide their classes among three categories: the cardio and core-strengthening exercises of the Power Fitness program, the Zumba and belly dancing of the Diva Fitness program, and the yoga and Pilates of the Zentastic Fitness program. The quartet of trainers extends its work beyond group instruction with lifestyle coaching and nutritional advice. At the peak of the gym's fitness pyramid sits the VIP Body Confidence program. Throughout this exclusive training regimen, the trainers hold their clients highly accountable for elevating their exercise habits, refining their diets, and skyrocketing to fame.
When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. Adele Fridman, founder of MetaBody, created a real-life version of that ticket with her MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.
