At Strive Health & Fitness, Tabata Bootcamp instructor Stacy DiGiacomo facilitates weight loss and fitness goals through breakthrough cross-training methods. Each workout speeds up metabolism to ensure optimal post-exercise caloric burn. Participants shed pounds, efficiently torching calories during and after workouts.
In addition to offering revolutionary training methods, the certified personal trainers and instructors at Strive Health & Fitness aim to make the 33,000 total square feet of indoor basketball courts, yoga studios, cardio floor with treadmills, elliptical trainers, rowers, and lifecycles, a cozy, welcoming environment. Patrons can drop their kids off in the childcare area before heading to one of three group fitness studios for classes such as spin, Zumba, cardio kickboxing, mat Pilates, and boot camp, or beelining straight to the free-weight and circuit-training equipment. Guests can enjoy vegetable juice drinks, protein shakes, and healthy salads at the café and juice bar. The facility also boasts spacious men's and women's locker rooms with a sauna for detoxifying the body after a workout.
The instructors at Vida Wellness Studio help patrons work towards fitness and overall happiness through workshops and fitness classes. Chattering drumbeats ripple from speakers during belly-dance sessions, which draw on techniques from Oriental, Caribbean, and Latin American dance traditions to bolster flexibility and build core strength. Little feet patter on the floor during kids’ classes that encourage fitness and self-expression through dance. When not eliciting choruses of relaxed sighs through yoga poses, instructors draw upon boxing and martial-arts techniques to tone your physique and make it more believable that Die Hard was based on your life. Core strengthening is maximized by controlled movement through Pilates training. Special wellness events at the center have included nutrition classes and musical jam sessions.
The trainers at Surge Training Center believe that each body is a machine, and should be versatile enough to tackle the challenges of everyday life. They focus on a multi-directional, compound approach to fitness, and offer eight different programs to help clients achieve their desired results. Programs range from CrossFit and mixed martial arts combat training to yoga and creative movement sessions that inspire kids to be passionate about fitness and wellness through the use of dance.
Even if their clients never intend to step into the ring, the certified trainers at Mittwork Fitness LLC train them with some of the same techniques as prizefighters. Through a noncontact quartet of boxing, kickboxing, MMA, and fitness classes, the coaches foster svelte frames and stronger limbs with combinations of mitt work, heavy-bag workouts, and boot-camp-style exercise. Meanwhile, students gain confidence and soak up the fundamentals of martial-arts techniques without ever having to spar with other students or engage in competition.
Even when she was swamped with a private psychotherapy practice and raising three kids, Bernadette Silva always found time for exercise. For the past 10 years, the certified personal trainer has studied boxing, yoga, and Pilates, ultimately developing her own workout style that fuses the aforementioned techniques with sports drills. In 2008, Silva and a group of local women spearheaded Neighborhood Workouts—the fitness program that would become Real Body Bootcamp.
Today, Silva and her team of certified personal trainers captain a gaggle of fitness classes throughout the week. Their signature boot camp fuses sports drills with high-intensity routines of cardio, strength training, yoga, and Pilates to offload calories, bolster cores, and build more endurance. The class list also includes Zumba and Piloxing fitness classes as well as kids' fitness classes, during which youngsters build self-confidence and the strength to finally confront the lunch ladies who take their money every day.
BFF Boot Camp blends the high-energy atmosphere of a gym with the support system and nutrition advice of a weight-loss center. The certified personal trainers motivate fitness-seekers of all levels with positive reinforcement. They stage monthly weight-loss contests to celebrate achievement and fuel a healthy competitive spirit in their students, and write up detailed fitness reports every six weeks that outline workout results, areas of improvement, and frozen-meat-slab-punching speeds. Even their indoor air-conditioned gymnastics-style facility is supportive, outfitted with cushioned floors to reduce the joint stress of already low-impact boot-camp workouts. To further help their clients reach their fitness goals, they offer group personal training and nutrition counseling.
Owned and operated by women, SpaLady provides New Jersey dames with a nurturing, non-competitive environment to shed pounds and sculpt curves. Social butterflies can choose from more than one-hundred group fitness classes that are offered weekly and include spin, kick boxing, belly dance, Pilates, and yoga. Free weights, cardio, and strength-training equipment offer lone she-wolves the opportunity to tone hind legs. After workouts, head to the sauna for some toxin-releasing relaxation, while kiddies enjoy the free childcare that comes standard with all memberships.
