The certified trainers at Phase 5 Personal Training believe the human body is more efficient than any gym machine. Using each client’s body weight for resistance, instructors in small-group boot camps lead clients through cardio workouts, agility training, and plyometrics exercises held at this laid-back studio.
Tom Kavanaugh draws from his personal-training experience to craft a varied workout regimen to push patrons of all skill levels to strengthen and tone their entire bodies. Up to 30 boot campers band together to burn fat and tone physiques outdoors with Tom, moving indoors in the event of inclement weather. Joining in on the calorie burning, Tom throws himself into the high-intensity workouts, performing the strength training, plyometrics, core work, and high-intensity cardio exercises alongside his students rather than barking instructions from the sidelines. After blasting through routines of pushups, sit-ups, and jumping, each Saturday class culminates in up to 15–20 minutes of play time, challenging students to games of dodge ball, kickball, or full-contact checkers.
Though B3 Fitness Studio's roster of classes may look modest, the fitness center meets the needs of all variety of exercisers. BarreAmped classes lengthen the body with repetition of minute, dance-inspired moves, whereas Insanity classes land at the other end of the workout spectrum with nonstop, intense cardio and plyometric conditioning. Boot camp pulls in a bit of everything—calisthenics, body-weight exercises, interval and strength training—and yoga sticks to slow, flowing movements linked with breath.
