For certified personal trainer Vanessa, boot camp is a lot like recess. She might takes her students to the playground for outdoor workouts, coaching them through jumps, lunges, and pull-ups with the aid of the colorful bars and swings. This setting reinforces her mission, which is also her business name: Fun In Fitness.
In addition to boot camp, Vanessa channels her 13 years of instructing experience, background in martial arts, and master's degree in biology to offer one-on-one personal-training sessions. These typically take place indoors, but she strives to make them just as energized as her playground trips.

While students work in large groups, each workout is individual and can be adjusted to meet the fitness needs of each student.
