Making the decision to eat healthier and exercise more won't just help you look better, it can also save your life. House of Fundamentals founder, Dino Mosley, is a perfect example?overweight as a child, he quickly changed his eating habits and began exercising after he learned he was at risk for coronary artery disease and high blood pressure. Encouraged by the results, he went on to become an athlete, and eventually and studied nutritional counseling and strength and conditioning in college.
Today, at House of Fundamentals, Dino is helping others turn their lives around. He instills his simple motto, "train hard, eat healthy", through interactive programs, including 60-minute functional training workouts that blast calories and tone muscles. He also offers one-on-one training sessions that address client's individual goals, whether they want to lose weight, boost agility, or work more leafy greens into their diet or amateur magic acts.
Fit Body Boot Camp instructors guide clients toward their fitness and weight-loss goals at locations throughout the world. They lead group workouts that integrate cardio exercise with resistance training and weight training, keeping sessions varied in order to avoid disheartening plateaus. Nutritional guidance supplements tailored fitness programs to ensure that clients are properly fueled to lose, gain, or maintain their weight.
Fit Body Boot Camp's clients have pretty remarkable things to say about their success: one man traded 100 extra pounds for a six-pack, and a bride-to-be had to have her dress taken in four times in a seven-week period. They've slimmed and strengthened their bodies through Fit Body Boot Camp's motivational workouts, which combine cardio, resistance, core work, and flexibility training. The high-energy classes are led by certified personal trainers, but the group format makes them more affordable than attending one-on-one sessions or bribing Charles Atlas to share his secrets. Despite working out with others, students can tailor each class to their own goals and ability level with the help of the dedicated trainers' modifications.
The coaches at CrossFit Virtue believe in the CrossFit system because its virtues are applicable in the real world. Since the system incorporates full-body exercises that use functional everyday movements, it readies its charges for anything from picking something up from the floor or getting out of a chair to playing a sport or running a marathon. It also makes activity safer by increasing durability through the strength and flexibility earned from those exercises. At CrossFit Virtue, instructors ease newcomers into the system with fundamentals classes, and they also offer one-on-one training.
At Stella Luna Yoga, it doesn't matter if you're a beginner or a bendy veteran.

There's even a class just for kids, which offers an environment free of stress-inducing broccoli. Aside from yoga, the center offers retreats, workshops, and holistic therapy.
