Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
By providing an energizing atmosphere, excellent coaching, and do-able workouts that keep clients motivated. The results will also keep them coming back consistently.
What is the biggest mistake you see people make when trying to get fit on their own?
Usually, people have no direction, no accountability, and unrealistic expectations.
What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?
It starts with a thorough warm-up and an explantation of the movements. Next, we work through a metabolic conditioning session that combines the proven effectiveness of CrossFit with interval training. We end the session with calisthenics, body sculpting, or core exercises.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I would advise anyone seeking to get in shape to make their diet a priority and to be consistent with their exercise routine.
Inside Bodytek Fitness, students of all skill levels use their own body weight to tone and firm muscles on TRX-suspension machines and Bosu balance balls. During Bodytek Fitness’s total-body fitness program, trainers spur clients along as they work with resistance bands, free weights, kettlebells, and rowers to improve cardiovascular systems and develop muscle definition. The one-hour workouts include 20–30 minutes of interval cardio to get hearts pumping and burn away the fat stores that cover up muscle tone. The rest of the 60 minutes is spent moving from station to station for new exercises that push through fitness plateaus by shocking the body much more efficiently than wearing your samurai armor to a Tesla-coil expo. Bodytek's other class offerings include yoga, spinning, and mat Pilates.
Within an expansive 18,000-square-foot gymnasium, leotard-clad children and adults spring from gymnast equipment, honing skills for tumbling and trapeze to dance and overall fitness. Nova programs transform all ages of bodies with lessons from current and ex-circus performers, and the staff opens their doors after school for kids to come and play while developing cognitive, motor, and social skills. The camps are a crash course in gymnastics—extremely useful when escaping bears in a wooded forest—and the gym hosts birthday parties by granting access to trampolines, bounce houses, and rock-climbing areas.
Asked about Pete Bommarito, Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker had this to say: "I heard great things... from various Pro Bowl players, and coming here I can see why the explosive type training at BPS really translates onto the field." He's not the only pro player to take advantage of the heavy-hitting regimen. Bommarito Performance Systems has trained professional baseball, football, hockey, and basketball players, not to mention a handful of martial artists and international soccer players. Working with fitness enthusiasts of all stripes, from high-school athletes to grownup weekend warriors, the business offers fully personalized programs based on preliminary evaluations and ongoing progress tracking.
Excellence breeds excellence. The dance instructors at Feathers Ballroom Dance Studio believe in this philosophy, which is why they expect the best from all their students, from children with dreams of dancing professionally to adults just trying to learn a new skill. Whether in group classes or private lessons, students can practice Latin steps, such as salsa and cha-cha, as well as classic styles, such as jive and waltz. Children ages eight and older can try Latin, ballroom, and hip-hop dancing in youth classes, and recently engaged couples can arrange for special lessons that choreograph elegant father-daughter, mother-son, or mad scientist-Frankenstein dances for their wedding receptions.
CrossFit is an intense fitness program designed for overall athletic excellence, not specialization. The program, comprised of 45- to 60-minute classes, accommodates all skill levels by adapting load and intensity without the need for changing workouts or bicep-boosting intravenous spinach injections. Among the defining features of this program is the unpredictable, shifting workout of the day, which pinpoints daily exercises scalable for all fitness levels and generalizes for progressive improvement. The CrossFit program starts strong and ramps up in intensity every class, so missing workouts is not recommended.
