Velocity Bootcamp's clients torch calories, whittle waists, and tone muscles during 30-minute boot-camp workouts. Consisting of bodyweight exercises such as suspension training and plyometrics, the small group workouts take place in a supportive, non-intimidating atmosphere. For convenience, the staff schedules up to 20 classes per week, including 6 a.m. classes for early birds who want to get the worm and then sling it several hundred yards. The personal trainers also help clients outside the gym by offering them easy-to-follow nutrition guidelines.

Spanning four locations, Club Fitness caters to health-seekers with its expansive cardio rooms, personal-training sessions, and group fitness classes. Most studios boast an impressive array of amenities, such as a private, women-only area, shake and supplement bar, babysitting, tanning beds, and weights that lift themselves and then high-five you. Guests can work out on the sprawling cardio decks, or get sweaty in group fitness classes that include Insanity, Bodypump, and Step.
Certified personal trainer Amy Goodwin's mission is to help people enjoy getting fit. As a mom of three energetic daughters, she knows it's not always easy to make time for a workout, and she admits that it takes dedication and discipline to reach fitness goals. She strives to make fitness accessible with a variety of group classes, ranging from stress-relieving yoga sessions to total-body RIPPED workouts, which engage the entire body more effectively than dragging a 200-pound ball and chain everywhere you go. During personal-training sessions, she merges functional movements with training tools such as free weights, kettlebells, and TRX suspension bands. Her training style also includes mixed martial-arts moves, plyometric training, and stability exercises.
