CTK Fitness’s troupe of certified health heroes connects consistent workouts to improved eating habits to help clients lose weight and achieve fitness goals. Each 60-minute boot-camp class begins with a gentle warm-up to loosen limbs from atrophic tendencies before enlisting bodies in a fast-paced circuit-training routine, including stations for weight training, cardio, and acceptable bed making. Focused on treating bodies inside and out, CTK complements fitness classes with specially designed eating plans. A certified trainer works with individual svelte seekers to create a preplanned menu and nurture corporeal vessels with either 1,200–1,500 healthful calories per day or one loving grandmother to tuck them in at night.
