Function. That's what CrossFit is all about. And that's what got Shaun and Jenna Tieman so hooked on the method that they decided to open Hoosier CrossFit. During classes, CrossFit's system of constantly varied movements are performed at a high intensity. Because the movements are functional, they increase agility, speed, and power while readying participants for all manner of physical activity. Classes rely on tools such as gymnastics rings and bumper plates instead of machines, ensuring that the body is doing all the work. To initiate the uninitiated, instructors start all beginners out with On-Ramp classes, which familiarize exercisers with CrossFit basics.

Corinna Cosentino first discovered Pilates as a young dancer, seeking a way to simultaneously build her strength and flexibility. She fell in love with the distinctive exercise regimen and in 1998 decided to earn her Pilates certification. She then continued her studies in Chicago under the guidance of teachers who studied directly under Joseph and Clara Pilates, honing her core-building techniques and mastering Joseph's secret handshakes.
After several years spent teaching in Chicago, Cosentino opened her own studio, which boasts unobstructed space and pale hardwood floors speckled with Pilates reformers, towers, and chairs. She also provides supportive props for students to use during mat-based classes.

Ryan Ketchum was overweight. When he decided to change his lifestyle, however, he held nothing back. In less than a year’s time, he lost 110 pounds and became the athlete he’d always dreamed of being. His dedication impressed lifelong athlete and All-American track and field competitor Wil Fleming, and together they founded Force Fitness & Performance to help others experience similar success.
Now, joined by six other expert trainers, the founders help everyday citizens shed pounds with personal training and boot camps. They also help competitive athletes improve their performance through functional motion training, which cuts unnecessary movements such as lifting the knees too high when running or clicking one’s heels when taking jump shots.
