Kim, the owner of Crofton Bootcamp, hails from Gold’s Gym, where she acted as a personal trainer for students of all ages and fitness levels. With her experience and expertise, she’s put together various boot-camp classes that combine fun, high-energy exercise and targeted fitness routines. During one-hour fitness boot-camp classes, students use dumbbells, resistance bands, medicine balls, and plyometrics to slim their physiques and buff up. Cardio camps keep the blood pumping during outdoor drills (weather permitting), whereas shorter classes, such as the boot-camp, fit challenging and rewarding drills into 30- and 15-minute slots for those short on time. Crofton Bootcamp also offers one-on-one personal training and helps clients attain healthier lifestyles through a nutritional diet.
Emily and Philip Vendemmia look after their students by wrangling a massive schedule of more than 72 classes per week spread over three locations. Bolstered by a strong team of certified Bikram yoga instructors, the duo guides students through Bikram’s 90-minute routine, consisting of 26 postures and two breathing exercises. Instructors crank each studio’s practice space to a hot and humid 105 degrees to help pupils’ muscles safely sink into deep, healing stretches and purge harmful toxins from the body. Each of the standing and seated poses is designed to work every muscle, ligament, and joint while sending freshly oxygenated vampire food to the organs to help support health and fitness.

They work to cultivate a familial atmosphere at each of their five locations, offering up family vision plans and extensive children’s eye care.
It may sound like an oxymoron, but sometimes it's possible to find inner peace through intense activity. At least, that's what Temple Boxing aims to help its students achieve. Here, trainers create an environment completely free of outside distractions, including judges who only use the ring to discard their peanut shells. Such a focused atmosphere enables exercisers to zero in on their workouts and the targets in front of them, specifically during boxing classes. Punchers of all levels can build up their boxing techniques and improve their strength and conditioning.
Chiropractor Dr. Nicholas A. Grande not only treats chronic pain—he used to suffer from it himself. Familiar with the connection between chronic pain and an unhealthily sedentary lifestyle from personal experience, Dr. Grande strives to alleviate aches and tightness, and to increase his clients' ranges of motion. He draws on diverse techniques to achieve these ends, from cold-laser treatments and massages to instrument-assisted spinal manipulation, which is much more effective than manipulating spines with a backpack full of monkeys.
