Certified trainer and W.O.W. Fitness founder Kameelah Wesley was never into athletics. But she did want to live a long and healthy life, so she enlisted the services of a personal trainer. The transformation she witnessed was beyond anything she ever imagined. It was this intense personal experience that opened her eyes to a greater social epidemic: obesity. That’s when she decided to begin her war on excess weight, and W.O.W. was born.
Kameelah’s fitness programs emphasize functional strength training with a focus on proper form and stability. These principles are carried out in four-week boot camps, personal-training sessions, and cardio dance classes performed with a host of free weights, stability balls, ellipticals, and heavy bagpipes. In addition to fitness training, Kameelah and her team assist students with diet plans and lifestyle coaching.
