H. W. Bressaw has been teaching karate, specifically as a prominent instructor of Kimura Shukokai, since 1966. That's nearly half a century of correcting stances, building self-confidence, and demonstrating effective self-defense techniques. His unique style stresses technical aspects of physical techniques, which helps make it possible for a person of any size, age, or gender to defend themselves. Today, he leads a highly experienced team of instructors trained to carry forth the mission he started so long ago. H. W. Bressaw and his team specialize in a timeless art known as kata, which builds karate skills while quieting the mind. They also teach a sparring technique known as kumite to their most adventurous students, who learn respect and attention to detail through the ancient art.

"In three years, I've never repeated a workout. Who wants to do the same thing over and over again?" said Total Core Fit Camp’s head trainer, Ryan Toth, according to Fighting For Life. The seasoned athlete's creative, constantly varied workouts have drawn more than 400 fitness seekers to his program and earned a feature on News 12's Get Fit Fridays. Amid his studio's pull-up bars, kettlebells, and punching bags, Ryan and his staff of fellow certified trainers lead functional workouts, favoring blasting through total-body movements over working on weight machines or running on treadmills. Ryan’s dedication to fitness seeps into his personal life as well, as you can spot his wife Dori sweating alongside him while their three young children watch and record their critiques.

Ryan and the trainers encourage their students to achieve healthy lifestyles beyond the classroom with nutritional counseling, arming them with custom meal plans, nutrition tips, and wholesome recipes. His online program provides busier patrons with complete at-home workouts, enabling them to bust moves at home or during their manager's long-winded motivational speech at the office.
