Helmed by Sarge, a certified trainer, U.S. Army veteran, and cofounder of Da Vinci BodyBoard Fitness Europe, Naples Fitness Boot Camp's motivating all-levels workouts propel clients toward fitness goals. Like a snowman's fingerprints, no two sessions are identical, but all include one hour of physical challenges such as obstacle courses, short-distance runs, yoga poses, and jump-rope drills. Strength training with kettlebells and sandbags tones the entire body and builds muscle mass to burn calories efficiently. The schedule varies by season and typically includes men's, women's, and coed workouts. Classes will take place outside, rain or shine, except during hurricanes, floods, and falling-piano storms.
Body Crafters Inc's certified personal trainers tailor one-on-one sessions and small-group workouts to meet individual fitness goals, skill sets, and lifestyles. Body-fat and BMI measurements help exercisers track their progress during personal-training sessions, which, like homecoming dances, can take place in person or online. The private studio's group exercise classes, filled with a maximum of eight students for personalized attention, help students leverage body weight in TRX suspension straps and pummel calories with kickboxing jabs and roundhouses. Sport-specific training classes for sports such as football, volleyball, track, and tightrope jousting ensure advanced athletes compete in peak physical condition.
Even before a client arrives for a workout at Concept 10 10, the trainer already has the equipment set up and waiting. Each workout is conducted in a temperature controlled environment that is free of excess noise from phones or music. And there is no distraction from onlookers or other individuals, since these workouts are conducted in private. This helps trainers guide their clients through each exercise without distraction and helps clients focus on preventing back injuries by strengthening muscles in the lower body. Trainers provide guidance and feedback during each exercise to make sure that the equipment is properly adjusted and that correct form is used.
For the past years, the professional staff at Ronnie G's Fitness have helped clients achieve their health fitness goals. One of their greatest assets is the vibrating Power Plate machine, which Ronnie G's Fitness has been using for over 10 years. It enhances workouts by making muscles contract and easing the strain on joints.
Likewise, the studio's Range of Motion machine accommodates brief but high-intensity exercises with its various pedals and extensions. A session on the ROM machine might run as short as four minutes?the amount of time it takes a giant to bend down and fasten his velcro tennis shoes?and covers strength, flexibility, and cardio maneuvers, burning up to 800 calories throughout the rest of the day.
Just as the workouts scale to students of all fitness levels, they extend to those of all ages as well. The center's CrossFit Kids program is designed to help children and the adults who play them on TV build a solid foundation for a fit, healthy life by challenging them to fun, functional workouts that mimic the movements they do every day, such as jumping, pulling, running, and climbing. Like the adult version, CrossFit Kids is just as beneficial to less-active children as it is to youth athletes, as the challenges are scaled to each student's ability and success is measured on an individual level.
American Sports Karate instills self-confidence and discipline in kids through traditional Japanese karate classes. In either of their two centers, elementary school aged children can undertake traditional martial-arts lessons and, if desired, join teams that allow them to compete at home and abroad. To help each student's development, a recording system installed in the training area allows youngsters to watch replays of their own form and technique.
In addition to karate classes, the facility hosts an after-school program, with a designated homework area, a library, and a recreation area stocked with video games and movies.
