Josh Stanton's passion for sharing fitness with others has led him to a variety of careers—he has worked as manager and lead personal trainer of a fitness studio, as a YMCA program director, and as a crisis-intervention counselor who helped at-risk teens via fitness. Today, he channels that passion into Generation Fitness, his own total-body training program that has earned a feature on the NBC 9 news and local accolades. He brings his tough, no-frills approach to exercise to Castle Rock and Parker, helming fun boot camps for students of all fitness levels looking to bolster their weight loss, strength, agility, and overall attractiveness in a muscle shirt. He blasts energetic music as he leads campers through boxing drills, weight exercises, and varied routines that he changes each session to keep things exciting and prevent muscle boredom.
The instructors at Hot Fitness lead fit-seekers through time-saving 35- to 45-minute group workouts performed in a heat- and humidity-controlled studio. Hot Fitness changes up its schedule each day, allowing students the option to arrive at the same time throughout the week and perform a different workout, ensuring a varied exercise program without the need to change up personal schedules or add charleston steps to Zumba routines. By performing a blend of endurance, strength, flexibility, and cardio exercises in a heated environment—though some classes are offered at room temperature as well—clients burn calories while shedding water weight and purging toxins from the pores.
When it comes to working out, The Gym Fitness Center and CrossFit Castle Rock has it all. Besides an eclectic roster of group classes that span from CrossFit and TRX to yoga and heart-rate monitor fitness courses, the gym also hosts one-on-one personal training sessions on a wide range of high-tech fitness equipment. The welcoming space is even family-friendly: a baby room and separate big kids' lounge keeps tykes 3 months to 8 years occupied as their parents work up a sweat.
UFC Gym?s four fight-centric Denver-area gyms ditch the polished look of wood-floored workout studios for gritty, competitive spaces filled with 150-pound punching bags and intense workouts. Like a baker molding gingerbread men, UFC Gym sculpts six-packs with boxing, kickboxing, and mixed-martial-arts classes. Although instructors and students agree that the gym?s atmosphere may enkindle intimidation in first-time attendees, most experience boosted self-confidence after conquering their first class. Private training sessions further stoke courage with workouts that leave patrons with the exhilaration of having survived 12 rounds in the ring or five minutes in a high-school lunchroom.

By leading?the?studio's Megaformer?workouts, though, she's so far kept?her core?stomach and back muscles?strong; thus, helping to keep her condition under control. The person she has to thank for all this? Sebastian Lagree.

Thanks to the workout style's wealth of drills and modifications, the routines can be adapted for exercisers of all abilities and those with back and knee injuries, as well. It's the linchpin of M2 Core +'s workouts, and is backed by the Megaformers?the custom-weighted?resistance equipment students sweat on. To boost motivation, the team plays high-octane songs during workouts, rather than just singing "Happy Birthday (to Muscles)" throughout each class.
It’s all about personalization at Fitness together. Here, certified personal trainers guide clients of all skill levels through motivating one-on-one and small-group training sessions designed to meet goals loftier than a giraffe’s basketball hoop. To help their charges torch calories and tone muscles as efficiently as possible, the trainers customize programs to individual goals and incorporate evidence-based training methods, such as intervals, tempos, and fartlek, into each fitness regimen. In-studio sessions take place in a studio flush with energizing green walls and functional training tools such as medicine balls, kettlebells, and TRX trainers.
