A lot of 5K runs take advantage of crisp, fall air to keep the event cool and fun, but the October Beerfest 5K and Lawn Games Tourney takes a few additional cues from the season. The organizers lay out a trail that winds through trees just changing colors, and loops around to pass a on-course beer-chugging station twice. Of course, if running and drinking don't necessarily mix for some participants, there's plenty more beer at the finish line, along with grilled hot dogs and hamburgers. Additionally, the day features a tournament of lawn games, such as corn hole, ladderball, and beer pong, that takes place between teams of two throughout the day. A DJ spends the whole day adding a soundtrack to the outdoor fun, and organizers invite guests to wear their Halloween costumes or scariest business-casual outfit.

Some people call Kevin Ensenat a certified strength and conditioning specialist. Others call him a level 2 A.R.T. provider. But perhaps the most important title is simply "coach." In that capacity, he privately coached New York Giants players Kevin Boothe and Chris Snee to prep for their Super Bowl championship. He guided college athletes through injury recovery, healing ACL tears and opening the door for continuing athletic careers. He did it all through personal training and group classes at his own indoor exercise studio, K-Strength Sports Training.

Joined by ACE-certified personal trainer Dan Hennessey, Kevin runs three distinct boot camps, two geared toward maximizing athletic prowess with progressive strength and agility training, and one designed to help women lose weight. The team of two also conducts one-on-one lessons and personal-training sessions for dedicated players seeking to target specific aspects of their game, such as tackling for defensive backs or lifting football players one by one off a dogpile for referees.

Sean M. Broderick’s eclectic mix of experiences in the personal-training business echoes his whole-body approach to wellness. Rather than just relying on being an internationally accredited instructor, which he is, he expanded his knowledge by becoming a sports-performance coach, athlete, nutritional consultant, and fitness model. Today, he serves as the head trainer at United Health & Fitness, where he and his colleagues boost the well-being of men, women, and children of all ages and experience levels.

Within the bright-turquoise walls of the fitness center, certified trainers spot students as they strengthen and tone muscles during small-group exercise classes. In doing so, they demonstrate the basic steps of weightlifting in Bodybuilding 101 or help their pupils hasten heart rates with choreographed footwork in kickboxing classes. In addition to group sessions, trainers take pride in customizing workout regimes to suit each individual during one-on-one personal training, which follows the business’s motto that “there is no generic person in this world.”

Lakeside Fitness Center has all the makings of your typical gym, but it wears the name ?center? with conviction. Members will find everything they want and need to workout?cardio and strength-training machines, free weights, group fitness classes, and the like?supplemented by something else: camaraderie. All members can enroll in a motivating and supportive boot-camp program, designed to push weight-loss and fitness goals into overdrive and build on that sense of solidarity.

Youth boot camp classes use a mix of cross training and cardio to tone muscles, and Piloxing combines Pilates with boxing into a fast-moving workout designed to strengthen the core. Relaxed sighs drift from the center's on-site spa, where therapists and aestheticians provide deep-tissue massages and rejuvenating facials tailor-made to fit the needs of men, women, and teens. The Center was recently named the winner of 201 Magazine's 2014 Best of Bergen Reader's Poll for Best Spin classes. Clients can check out the aware mention in 201 Magazine's upcoming February 2014 issue.

The track and field training staff at SCI has coached and trained more than 30,000 athletes?and that statistic is always growing. At his training facility, Sports Conditioning Institute, he and his team encourage athletes with sports-specific training, focusing on games including hockey and volleyball, and lead fit-seekers in two boot-camp styles. The common thread running through every workout is Vaccaro?s focus on avoiding overstressing bodies and preventing injuries. He emphasizes short and frequent workouts, for example, rather than long routines that can lead to sustaining injury, becoming burnt out, or accidentally running into another country without your passport. To complement coached workouts, the gym hosts an array of free weights and cardio machines for solo sessions.
