At CrossFit MetroEast, certified CrossFit coaches design different workouts each day, which blend exercises from various fitness disciplines such as gymnastics, weightlifting, plyometrics, cardio, and strength training. Athletes may be tasked with lifting weights, running, or rowing, or working out with equipment such as ropes, tires, and kettlebells.
The trainers at The Boxing Gym help clients use their natural assets to get into shape: namely, two fists and a little bit of stress to take out on a punching bag. They splice their boxing and kickboxing lessons with calisthenics, push-ups, and jump roping, keeping the workout fast and varied, and always returning to combative techniques. Beyond the realm of fitness, they also help prepare fighters for the ring with MMA training in the form of submission-grappling lessons and full-speed, pad-assisted kickboxing.
The expert instructors of The Body Mill Fitness and Yoga Studio lead students of all levels through challenging classes that range from intense boot-camp classes to calming gentle yoga. They use suspension training and kettlebells to help students build muscles, and teach them to develop core muscles during Pilates classes.
The River-City MMA team consists of a yoga instructor, personal trainers, and coaches specialized in boxing and Brazilian jujitsu.

Group fitness classes include yoga and cardio kickboxing, which are designed to improve clients' flexibility and endurance.
Even before he founded PowerFit Bootcamp, JR Spear always felt a calling to transform people into fitness machines. A fourth-degree black belt and studied martial artist, Spear spent years training future Marine Corps officers and Iraqi soldiers in self-defense and combat skills. Later, Spear taught his own MMA fitness and cardio-kickboxing classes, along with personal and group training sessions.
At PowerFit Bootcamp, he and his staff of fitness instructors encourage each student to persevere by leading motivational and high-energy classes. At 12 indoor and outdoor locations, students undergo full-body workouts designed to jettison fat and tone muscle. Trainers welcome students of all stripes, giving them a period of time to complete each move, rather than a number of repetitions, encouraging each student to do as much as he or she can without feeling uncomfortable, overexerting, or resorting to time travel. Along the way, coaches track progress and motivate students by noting benchmarks during physical fitness tests on the first Monday and Tuesday of each month.
