Fit Body Boot Camp's inspirational instructors raise their voices only to offer praise and motivation to participants sweating through each 45-minute total-body workout. The boot-camp classes let patrons blast through the doldrums of traditional workout routines by constantly changing exercises, incorporating diverse moves, and peering at muscles through a kaleidoscope. Each session torches calories and stokes metabolism while whittling the core and toning muscles. In order to comfortably challenge each exerciser, Fit Body's gym houses a plenitude of fitness-forging paraphernalia, including battling ropes, suspension trainers, and a joint-friendly foam floor. A personalized nutrition plan caps off the six-week series by elucidating healthy eating methods and feeling satisfied while fueling the body with the energy it needs.
While many fitness gurus limit their gear to traditional hand weights and medicine balls, the inspired trainers at Accelerated Athlete also incorporate sledgehammers, tractor tires, battle ropes, and ladders into their exercise classes. Far from limited to life in the toolshed, these unusual components are the building blocks of heart-pumping exercise routines that confuse muscles into becoming stronger and bodies into becoming leaner. Trainers' encouraging words play an equal role, inspiring students to sweat through boot camps, power yoga, kickboxing, and high-intensity interval training tailored to each individual’s skill level.
Fit Body Boot Camp's obsidian-sculpted staff motivates boot campers during the results-oriented fitness program, designed to whittle weakness from flagging physiques, leaving tough and toned musculatures. Surrender exteriors to a course of nonstop, 45-minute workouts, each incorporating cardio exercises, strength training, core tightening, and balance building, until bodies are sufficiently able to crush bricks into sand and sand into immortality.
Basic Training Academy programs—captained by personal trainers who have either earned or are completing their NFPT certification—enlist the power of positive reinforcement to keep patrons sprinting toward their fitness goals. The 60- to 90-minute sessions, which trade in the shrill screams and sarcastic parrot sidekicks of a drill sergeant for supportive mantras, focus on flexibility, strength, and conditioning. Three levels of boot-camp classes put physiques through challenging calisthenics, torching fat while attendees hustle through picturesque landscapes and vault over elk in parks and forest preserves.
People who want to augment their training experience can enlist in Basic Training Academy's AZPAC (A-Z Physical Assessment Consultation) program. Personal trainers work one-on-one with clients to assess lifestyle patterns before creating personalized long-term fitness strategies. To cement the bonds of workout camaraderie and give students a chance to bask, the academy also holds an annual retreat to Devil's Lake State Park, where participants escape the noise of the city and learn that Devil's Lake is just like a normal lake, only with more chocolate in it.
Dr. Chris Hubbard was studying to become a strength and conditioning coach for elite-level athletes when a back injury altered his life plans. He shifted his focus, learning how to treat spinal injuries as he earned his license as a chiropractic physician. However, he hadn't forgotten his first dream?he had merely delayed it.
Dr. Hubbard combined his expertise as a trainer and a chiropractor to design a workout regimen based around functional movements, such as running, jumping, and crab-walking to confuse your predators. He ensured that the program was scalable, so that students could adjust it to match their fitness level. Then, he founded a CrossFit program. Each of his 60-minute sessions provides a full-body workout: attendees swing kettlebells, heft free weights, and toss medicine balls back and forth between cardio exercises. This balanced approach helps to build lean muscle and improve endurance over time.
In addition to developing Primal Health & Fitness' workout regime, Dr. Hubbard still offers chiropractic care. He also performs pain-relieving active-release techniques for those suffering from chronic aches and sports injuries.
