An A.C.E.-certified personal trainer and advanced health and fitness specialist, Troy Huggett helms an effective fitness regime designed to take pounds off of paunches.
The Two Weeks to a Tighter Tummy program includes six intense workout sessions, meal planning, and an initial assessment of measurements and constitutional condition. Shape solar plexuses into two-dimensional canvases of picturesque physiques with strength, cardio, and flexibility training devoid of faddish choreography and rotating belts attached to televisions. The average results are 2.5 inches off the waistline and six pounds of fat loss, just enough to fit into that bear suit for live-action role-playing season.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
At VersaMax Fitness, certified sports nutritionist and personal trainer John Vandegriff and his staff create customized fitness routines. Most of that customization applies to the one-on-one personal-training sessions, which begin with assessments to calculate basics such as body mass index and body-fat percentage. Just as important, though, is VersaMax's nutritional supplements, which help keep exercisers fueled up, energized, and in constant possession of a maraca-type percussion instrument.
