When Ed Norice left the United States Navy in search of a new career, he found fresh enemies to battle domestically: obesity and heart disease. He started Impressive Fitness The Jungle to combat these illnesses and give his fellow citizens a path towards healthy lifestyles.
Norice and his two instructors, Aubree and Rodney, draw from a vast repertoire of exercise styles to wage their war. TRX resistance bands force the muscles of the body to work in concert and strengthen the body from head to toe. Martial-arts skills lend a practical edge to every workout, increasing endurance and arming students with basic self-defense techniques. Outside of group classes, the trio offers personal training and nutritional consultation to help prevent clients from making unhealthy choices in their diet, such as eating a whole birthday cake and then eating the cake’s candles.
The instructors at P31 Fitness aim to echo the sentiment of Proverbs 31, which speaks to the empowerment of women through hard work. To that end, they seemingly never run out of ways to make their students sweat. To combat the monotony of repetitive workouts, they rotate their boot-camp-style workouts, preventing boredom while staving off unproductive muscle memory. In addition to changing exercises, the team also arms ladies in their fight for personal wellness with daily health and nutrition tips, as well as cooldown time devoted to reflection on one's own spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical health.
S.W.E.A.T.S. stands for Strength With Exercise Attitude Training Survival, which sums up its fitness instructors’ chief aim. They know that working out is in vain without a complementary attitude adjustment, no matter which of the fitness regimes at S.W.E.A.T.S. a client chooses. But once pupils do manage to recalibrate their outlook on exercise, personal training, cardio and strength classes, and boot camp can get to work burning fat.
Raven Aultman's personal fitness journey started at 253 pounds. Four years later and more than 100 pounds lighter, she's dedicated herself to helping others to reach their weight-loss goals with multifaceted boot camps and sound nutritional guidance. Knowing firsthand what it takes to sculpt a healthy body, Raven is able to tailor her workouts to help clients to effectively slim down without the use of steamrollers and falling grand pianos. She draws from sports drills and resistance training to help groups to collectively trim and tone and customizes individual regimens for one-on-one personal-training sessions.
Core Fight Academy’s decorated coach Blas Carrasco and his staff blast bodies of all fitness levels with intense strength training and toning workouts employing combat-sport conditioning methods. The 45-minute, outdoor Fighting Fit Boot Camp burns through exercises from cardio-boosting kick-boxing to muscle-carving lifts using cast-iron kettlebells, keeping muscles guessing and brains hoping to tone their cerebral gyros. The boot camp amps up on June 13 with a schedule of classes offered Monday through Thursday as well Saturday; trainees are welcome to attend any number of sessions each week.
