Maisha McCoy made it her mission to be a health and fitness resource for her community. And her community is in good hands: along with experiences as a group fitness instructor, she was also a retail pharmacist. She currently runs Breathe4Sure Pharmacy Solutions, a diabetes consulting company. This health-fitness background also comes into play at Zumba with Maisha, where she leads Zumba classes at local churches such as Perkins Square Church. Everyone is welcome—including kids, adults, or those with no Zumba experience—to have fun while working hard as they blast calories and tone up during the aerobic workouts.
Recognizing the quirks of peoples' exercise routines—some feel intimidated by other exercisers, others prefer the support of a group—Kenneth Reed and his staff at Fit For Life Personal Training stage their workouts in private and small group settings. For even more community, exercisers can sign up for one of Fit for Life's boot camps or upbeat Zumba dance-fitness classes. To supplement workouts with healthful foods, the facility also supplies nutritional counseling.
The trainers at Canton Club work as a team to motivate and guide clients through their fitness programs. Panoramic views of Baltimore's Inner Harbor probably don't hurt, either. In this positive atmosphere, exercise regimens combine holistic and functional-fitness training methods, all of which are constantly updated to keep participants' health evolving and their muscles from slowly turning into stone. Small group and team-training programs alike include ample individual attention for every member. Between scheduled meetings with advisers, these custom programs plunge clients into Turbo Kick, Zumba, TRX suspension training, suspension-based aerial yoga, and other group classes. Some programs also offer workouts designed in-house, like XPF, which includes high-intensity interval training and kettlebells.
The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 5 or 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
At PhabFuzion, personal training doesn't necessarily refer to a one-on-one, in-studio workout. The business's personal trainers also take on small-group and partner training in their studio, outdoors, or in clients' homes via personalized workouts put online (plus weekly phone or email check-ins). All three programs also incorporate nutritional help with weight-management specialists. For those who prefer to work out in a larger crowd, there are also Zumba, Tai Chi, Pilates Fuzion, and other group fitness classes.
