Certified personal trainer and youth fitness specialist Marcia Sugar-Clark understands how hard it can be to balance everyday demands with maintaining a healthy lifestyle. As a working mom herself, she has had to make a concerted effort to keep fitness in her life, through running, cycling, and strength training. At Fitness Revolution, she helps clients of all ages and abilities make fitness a pivotal part of their lives, tailoring her programs to meet each individual's specific needs and personal goals. Whether her clients participate in private, semiprivate, or group personal training, she works one-on-one with each person to forge an effective and safe exercise experience. Her boot-camp-style routines focus on achieving functional fitness, helping clients perform everyday tasks with more vigor and strength, such as heaving bags of groceries, scaling stairs, or outrunning the many feral packs of neighborhood dogs on their morning commutes.
A joint venture between a professional boxer and a team of successful kickboxing-equipment tycoons, Title Boxing Club maintains a network of dozens of studios spread across 19 different states, winning over a devoted clientele with its invigorating and engaging boxing- and kickboxing-themed classes. Each workout uses the heart-healthy exercise of cardio training to satisfy people’s innate desire to punch and kick something other than a broken jukebox. Participants build lithe, strong muscle tissue by delivering powerful blows to punching bags, and build flexibility and agility by practicing roundhouse kicks and hooks. Students can build their core strength and endurance with medicine balls and burpees, enlist a qualified personal trainer to practice their newfound skills in the ring, or just torch calories during intense full-body Power Hour workouts.
Matt Kuhlman, a fitness instructor and owner of The Sweatshop, likes to maintain a fun atmosphere. For starters, he keeps a list of lighthearted rules for his employees, one of which is “all employees must be able to dance, sing off key, and change into a bunny suit in less than 10 seconds.” Yet for all the gym’s silly workouts, its group fitness and boot-camp classes are no joke, combining a hearty mix of body-weight and plyometric exercises to keep exercisers engaged and help them lose weight without just moving to the moon.
