Travis Garza became a fitness operative at the same time that he officially became an adult, commencing his personal-training career at age 18. As the now-48-year-old progressed to earn his NASM certification and direct multiple training centers, he was constantly mounting a counteroffensive to "fitness fraud" and common gym stressors. Eventually, he created his own workout plans to help to reshape his clients' physiques, taking on the title of "The Master of Body Transformation." His methods have since been featured on KOCO, FOX 25, and KTOK talk radio for their slimming, confidence-building results.
Whether he is leading a fat-loss boot camp or personal-training session, Travis strives to be a steadfast source of support to his students?he always responds to email, telephone, or post-its stuck to lobbed medicine balls. His programs take the holistic route to health by emphasizing nutrition in addition to exercise, providing consultations and take-home resources for clients.
Ryan Dobbs began resculpting bodies 11 years ago, when he first acquired his personal-trainer certification. As his career progressed, he logged more than 13,000 hours of training experience, helping hundreds of students punch through the walls barring them from their fitness goals. Eventually, with the aid of his wife Amanda, he opened Evolution Personal Training, a 10,000-square-foot private gym that he now uses to house his Edmond Bootcamp classes.

Every new exerciser begins with waist measurements and receives a dietary plan that limits calories and maximizes nutrition. Attendees also get Ryan and Amanda's personal numbers for 24/7 access to coaching, motivation, and counseling on how to maintain a healthy relationship with their dumbbells.
Ever a resilient warrior, Marybeth Davis chose to see the destruction of her New Orleans home by Hurricane Katrina as a direct challenge. Not only did she grit her teeth and rebuild, the mother of four also started her own boot camp. In her capacity as a certified personal trainer, she pulls from her years of experience in championship martial artistry to lead classes for fitness seekers of all abilities. Having overcome weight issues and injuries, Marybeth employs empathy to scale each of her high-intensity workouts to accommodate all fitness levels, from beginners to professional athletes. The coach also strives to create a motivational and non-intimidating community amongst her students, discouraging screaming, insults, or unprovoked outbreaks of water balloon fights.
Fit Body Boot Camp's nationally certified personal trainers replace drill-sergeant screams with encouraging mantras in their one-hour indoor classes that welcome clients of all fitness levels. During sessions, trainers round out weightlifting sessions, resistance drills, and core workouts with cardio routines such as light running and obstacle courses. They switch up class routines regularly to ensure courses are never the same from day to day, leading wildcard days that incorporate hiking, crawling, and high-stakes Uno games played with 50-pound cards. In addition to bolstering workouts with nutrition guidance, trainers cultivate an atmosphere of positive camaraderie designed to push campers further toward their weight-loss goals.

Three is the magic number at Trinity Exercise Studio. The staff there lead exercise classes that concentrate on three aspects of fitness: cardio, strength, and flexibility. But those aren't the only requirements?each class must also aim to nurture each client's mind, body, and spirit, taking a tri-fold approach to total health. For that reason, the schedule includes disciplines such as boot camp classes, yoga workouts, and TRX suspension training, which challenge participants both mentally and physically. Trinity's trainers also supplement these group workouts with personal training and nutritional counseling.
Three is also the age of some of Trinity Exercise Studio's youngest clients. In addition to helping adults get in shape, the studio offers youth programs for ages 3-12, as well as teen programs, senior citizen programs, and summer programs for people named summer.
