Achieve Fitness’s team of certified trainers builds healthy bodies from the ground up using cardio and strength exercises, ViSalus and LifeVantage nutritional supplements, and a hearty dose of encouragement. In addition to helping clients set specific long- and short-term goals, the trainers track their progress during custom fitness programs composed of personal training, small-group training, boot camps, or a combination of all three. Exercises are tailored to a variety of fitness levels during each routine, allowing new and seasoned exercisers to cultivate optimal levels of endurance, flexibility, and brawn. Personal-training sessions contain the highest level of customization and a rotating lineup of physical challenges that keep clients engaged and motivated. Workouts may take place in homes, at local gyms, or, in the case of boot camps, at nearby parks and churches.
In addition to designing exercise regimens for individuals, Achieve Fitness's trainers build fitness programs for companies, religious groups, and apartment complexes. Between face-to-face workouts, these programs' participants can access a host of online health resources, including more than 750 fitness videos, a recipe database, and a calculator that computes the number of calories burned while jumping rope or unattended roller-coaster turnstiles.
It?s apparent to anyone who watches ballet that female dancers must be extremely light. After all, they often have to be swept across the stage and effortlessly lifted into the air, and their steps must be as silent as a sneeze at the opera. Yet, as slender as ballet dancers are, they still possess bodies that look as if they were chiseled out of marble. That dancer look?a slim body with long, lean muscles?is what barre3 helps its clients achieve with a combination of ballet-barre work, yoga, and Pilates.
At locations across the country, barre3?s instructors use a three-step process that first focuses on deeply exercising muscles using isometric holds. The workout then elevates heart rate with low-impact movements before cooling down the body with a recovery stretch that also helps elongate body lines.
The workout has proved to be so effective that it has received multiple press mentions, including in the Huffington Post and In Style magazine, and it has even drawn in body-conscious celebrities such as Madonna. Mothers in particular flock to barre3?s classes, as many locations offer on-site childcare.
Trainer and fitness guru Justin Bradshaw modeled SGT. H20's CombatSwim after the rigorous training he received as an Army diver. His challenging exercises encourage full-body fitness, using workouts that build stamina, boost metabolism, improve swimming skills, and promote weight loss. Incorporating the best of land-based cross-training systems, CombatSwim includes plenty of high-intensity interval training and pulse-hiking calisthenics. In the pool, water adds extra resistance that amplifies the effects of the exercises, which include swimming sprints, endurance swimming, and treading water with weights. Designed to sharpen the mind as well as the body, CombatSwim leaves exercisers with the same confidence and conditioning as some of the world's elite military warriors.
