Coaches of Renewal Body Bootcamp coaxes hard work, discipline, and buckets of sweat from fitness-seekers during her intense, full-body workouts. One of her specialties is TRX resistance training, which involves suspending students by their arms, legs, and torsos from straps and harnesses dangling from the ceiling. Exercises require participants to fight gravity and their own body weight to build muscle. Coaches sometimes combines TRX with Pilates core-strengthening work or a rigorous plyometric regimen, mixing up workout routines daily to maximize effectiveness. In addition to physical training, she supplies students with nutritional counseling that measures appropriate caloric intake by the day, creating balanced diets that supply ample energy without extra carbs, fats, or whatever compound butter is made of.
The instructors at Core Group Fitness understand that getting buff doesn't happen by simply visiting the gym; rather, they see it as a process inextricably linked to camaraderie and community. This team-based approach comes out in their group classes and boot camps, where cohorts of exercises grunt their way through TRX suspension training or build lean muscle and improve flexibility with functional workout regimens. They pair strength training with cardio work during their interval training sessions, which torch fat thanks to metabolism-boosting exercises. In addition to group classes, instructors also build rapports with individual students during personal training sessions, helping clients prep for their first marathon or last street fight with the meter man.

Today, these relics display artifacts from Spring Lake, Ferrysburg, and Grand Haven's pasts, documenting events all the way back to when the land belonged to Native Americans.

On the edge of Lake Michigan, three generations of family members wade out into the water for a paddleboard class. Some seem apprehensive, unsure of how the lesson will unfold, but the mood changes once Susan, the groups' 70-year-old matriarch, stands atop her board and dips her paddle into the water. Encouraged by her bravery, the rest of the boarders stand upright and step out of their comfort zones.
