Fitness is Art isn’t a typical fitness studio. Once a cozy family home, the space welcomes guests to heave exercise balls next to a fireplace and an antique grandfather clock. Within the rich-wooded confines, a husband-and-wife team leads students of all abilities through group fitness classes and personal-training sessions. Bright blue walls surround students as sun pours in the main room’s many windows for uplifting Zumba and dance classes. Classes and training also move outside, where they’ve set up a MoveStrong fitness center for outdoor boot-camp, circuit-training, and personal-training sessions. Helping students get fit from truly head-to-toe, they also offer facial fitness classes that help alleviate wrinkles as smiles bench-press heavier reps.

Fitness industry veteran Dulcinea Lee Hellings's goal is to bring a high-quality, effective exercise regimen to people who don't love big gyms or can't afford personal trainers. In 2004, she realized that mornings could be used for more than hitting the snooze button over and over for two hours, and founded Boot Camp "Morning Crunch!" to help fledgling exercisers whip into shape.
She designs her all-levels programs to be scream-free morning motivators⎯the first stop in her patrons' journey of daily accomplishments. The fast-paced, ever-changing circuit of strength and cardio exercises keeps bodies guessing and minds from becoming bored. Each of the boot camp's 12 outdoor locations has a different dedicated trainer who gets to know each student personally, remembering their names and memorizing any interesting freckle patterns. They complement their morning routines with a smattering of evening options for those who prefer to work out after the day's activities.
A National Association of Sports Medicine–certified personal trainer and a former football player, Will Harding has what it takes to help people exceed their expectations. His post-college work with personal trainers inspired him to get certified himself, and today he guides clients toward healthy and active lifestyles at Beast Nation.
Will designs customized programs for everyone. Depending on their needs, he might ask them to engage in weight lifting, plyometrics, cardio conditioning, or all of the above. Some of his regimens include exercises such as pushups, weight lifting, and heavy rope exercises, as well as sport-specific conditioning such as running mechanics and lateral and linear agility. Will also leads indoor group boot camps that help clients shed weight and increase energy without resorting to extreme measures such as bathing in caffeinated soda.
Throughout her 15 years as a certified personal trainer, Karyn Graham has earned an unusual nickname: “The Butt Queen.” The moniker references her signature workout, the Karyn Technique, which firms glute muscles without bulking up thighs. Karyn teaches her eponymous classes at RPM Fitness Studio, a boutique workout venue she co-owns with her sister, Cynthia. The duo finesses clients’ physiques with rigorous spinning classes, whose minimal joint impact renders them ideal for injured athletes and knee models. Complementary Pilates classes, conducted on mats or Reformers, streamline physiques by building long, lean muscle. Five-week Slimfit Bootcamps fuse Pilates with cardio-kick, boxing, body-fat analysis, and nutrition counseling.
