Former OSU All-American track star and football player—and current NFL trainer—Marcus Bivines joins fitness model Tracy Winters at Hype Fitness Studios, where the co-owning duo puts special emphasis on motivating participants as they lead boot-camp classes. Designed specifically for indoor boot-camp sessions, the spacious black-walled studio echoes with huffs and puffs as the crew leads beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels through head-to-toe cardio and strength training. The staff also choreographs three separate sessions for kids (ages 7–15), teaching youngsters supportive teamwork and helping them increase their strength, speed, and ability to do long division while hopping through tires.
Tracy has been a certified personal trainer since 2005, and since then she has practiced what she preaches by successfully training for fitness and bikini competitions. Marcus has spent the better part of the last decade imparting his training wisdom to aspiring athletes from middle school to the NFL, and he has a knack for improving his clients' speed and power, the traits that most often get rocket boosters hired by NASA. The third pillar of Hype Fitness, TC Bread, brings his own impressive background to the table, having played strong-side linebacker at OU.
