Velocity Sports Performance connects its certified coaching staff to small groups during fitness training programs designed to challenge casual exercisers or sharpen athletes' competitive edge by building strength, agility, and speed. The limit-expanding one-hour adult sessions whip small groups into finer fettle, focusing on coordination and movement. Each session switches up routines to inject high-energy fun, increase metabolism, and keep muscles from getting bored and reading celebrity gossip. During the 60-minute youth program, up to eight youngsters work alongside their dedicated coach, increasing their body awareness through running drills, coordination activities, and strength-building routines.
Certified personal trainer and all-around fitness buff Trevor Hoha sculpts bodies into Renaissance-worthy works of art in group boot-camp classes and one-on-one personal-training sessions. Calories begin to spontaneously combust as Trevor and his fellow trainers shout words of encouragement to push small groups of students through one-hour workouts that combine weightlifting and functional cardio movements. As students burn calories and gain muscle cycling through push-ups and rapid plyometric exercises, the hawkeyed trainers keep sentry for half-hearted efforts and the use of weights that look suspiciously like balloon animals.
Though certified trainer Jon Drees wants his clients to lose weight and gain confidence, he also wants them to build strength they can use in everyday life. That's why he equips his gym with functional training equipment. Suspension training harnesses put bodies in charge of their own gravity, and an open area of turf lets athletes simulate games of pretend mowing-the-lawn. Boot camps and personal-training sessions also call upon kettlebells and ropes to round out complete workouts, which can be customized to meet the specific needs and goals of each individual.
