Fitness Revolution Queen Creek’s co-owners, Asad Tufail and Michelle Stefl-Tufail, learned the training ropes at extra-large health clubs but decided to open a facility focused on more personalized workouts. They lead small-group training sessions, as well as boot-camp classes that cap at 15 participants per session. The staff encourages camaraderie among participants and keeps motivation high outside of the gym through social-media sites.
The trainers at Ultimate Body Boot Camp forage through the workout wilderness to curate a fitness omnibus. They pull from multiple exercise styles—including Pilates, plyometrics, kickboxing, yoga, and core work—to build workouts that combine the benefits of cardio and resistance training. This earned the program a top spot on Arizona Foothills magazine's Best of Our Valley list for 2012.
