B.U.S.Y. Body Fitness founder and police officer Tonya Ransom tones, tightens, and toughens bodies of all shapes and sizes with challenging, motivating, and supportive boot-camp classes. In each one-hour class, which is limited to 25 students, certified B.U.S.Y. body trainers lead boot campers through spontaneous, creative, and playful workouts, such as impromptu high-five competitions. Tone muscles with full-body resistance training, burn calories in cardio drills, dodge through obstacle courses, race through relays, and beat your best time in personal challenges.
The coaching staff at D1?which is co-owned by professional athletes such as NFL player Peyton Manning, MLB player Chipper Jones, and NFL player Philip Rivers?refuses to discriminate between professional athletes and everyday exercisers. They scale the strength-and-cardio workouts of their group boot-camp classes and one-on-one intensive courses to individual abilities, bringing out the best in each student regardless of his or her workout history.
The typical D1 gym houses modern indoor turf fields with adjoining weight rooms, giving instructors the space to invent expansive obstacle courses that may require students to lift tires or tug 747s. In the boot-camp program, coaches meet with students one-on-one to discuss progress and find ways to improve. Each facility also houses a sports-therapy clinic, where expert therapists ease muscle injuries through rehabilitation programs and strength-restoring exercises.
Pilates Chattanooga?s instructors work closely with clients to strengthen and lengthen their physiques, using Joseph Pilates?s century-old fitness system and equipment to tone the core. Five types of classes include a program designed specifically for beginners that features one-on-one attention, and apparatus classes that utilize specialized Pilates equipment.
Owner Heather Simmons Alexander applies her 11 years of certified experience to personally educate students about the fitness-boosting art of Pilates. Designed to strengthen the body and increase flexibility, Pilates consists of a series of strengthening movements and low-impact resistance exercises. During 55-minute individual lessons available Monday–Friday by appointment, students tighten cores while keeping an astute, corrective eye on form. Since Pilates focuses on control and body-weight exercises, impeccable form helps students build muscle and increase their fitness with swifter celerity. Individual lessons are built to bestow individuals with a sturdy foundation of skills before they graduate to one of Heather’s semi-private mat classes, in which they may continue to build balance, flexibility, and strength with up to six others.
Personal-training mavens Rob Hatch and Rhonda Swaney mold their clients into versions of their chiseled selves with 60-minute Buns & Abs Fitness sessions. During classes, these seasoned trainers will shepherd students through a fitness regimen designed to bolster muscles and evict excess fat cells taking up space on their protoplasmic couch. They'll target the lower body with an arsenal of high-intensity interval training and strength exercises designed to define glutes, abs, and legs much more effectively than dictionary-themed calisthenics.
Board-certified, Dr. Garry Gesualdi personally handles all of Affordable Botox of Chattanooga's prettification procedures, delicately sculpting countenances with minimally invasive techniques. Patients choose one of three areas on which to receive a series of three to five injections, inverting frown lines, smoothing forehead wrinkles, or shooing crow's-feet away from the soul’s windowsills. Each treatment takes about 30 minutes for new patients and 15 minutes for repeat visitors, with the procedure itself lasting two to three minutes, facilitating results that can last for three to four months. Many patients return directly to work afterward, complaining only of some mild discomfort accompanied by a startling rise in air-blown kisses from strangers on the street.
