Ryan Dobbs began resculpting bodies 11 years ago, when he first acquired his personal-trainer certification. As his career progressed, he logged more than 13,000 hours of training experience, helping hundreds of students punch through the walls barring them from their fitness goals. Eventually, with the aid of his wife Amanda, he opened Evolution Personal Training, a 10,000-square-foot private gym that he now uses to house his Edmond Bootcamp classes.
The dynamic training duo outfit their gym with constantly updated machines, kettlebells, and stability balls, replacing worn-out equipment and upgrading to equipment they've judged more effective. Every new exerciser begins with waist measurements and receives a dietary plan that limits calories and maximizes nutrition. Attendees also get Ryan and Amanda's personal numbers for 24/7 access to coaching, motivation, and counseling on how to maintain a healthy relationship with their dumbbells.
Fit Body Boot Camp's nationally certified personal trainers replace drill-sergeant screams with encouraging mantras in their one-hour indoor classes that welcome clients of all fitness levels. During sessions, trainers round out weightlifting sessions, resistance drills, and core workouts with cardio routines such as light running and obstacle courses. They switch up class routines regularly to ensure courses are never the same from day to day, leading wildcard days that incorporate hiking, crawling, and high-stakes Uno games played with 50-pound cards. In addition to bolstering workouts with nutrition guidance, trainers cultivate an atmosphere of positive camaraderie designed to push campers further toward their weight-loss goals.
Dojo 3 takes its name from the three core programs taught by its qualified instructors--Krav Maga, Zumba DAnce Fitness, and Family Martial Arts. Students of any age master tae kwon do, karate, and kung fu in martial arts courses, while grown-ups learn hard-hitting, intuitive self defense techniques with krav maga.
The team of certified instructors at X Factor Fitness Studios amplifies the intensify of normal workout routines with the P90X training system, which pairs challenging, muscle-sculpting exercises with nutritional guidance to facilitate full-body transformations. Owner and lead trainer Brian Stevens uses his experience as a group fitness instructor and life coach to create a positive environment where exercisers can push their physical limits and strive toward their individual goals. The team challenges exercisers to “bring it” in classes that focus on specific muscle groups, such as the back and biceps, as well as mind-calming yoga classes that combine strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination.
Redbud Dental was founded in answer to the chain clinics that endorse a one-size-fits-all approach to dentistry. The doctors focus on maintaining a conversation with each patient and coming up with a nickname for each tooth. They educate patients on treatment options based on their expertise in implants, cosmetic dentistry, and endodontics. This collaborative approach fosters a long-term relationship with patients, who can visit the dentists without fear that they are orthodontists wearing dentist masks.
Since Phil Clayton became the owner of TSO Optical 25 years ago, he's transitioned away from the traditional discount-eyewear model and toward a premium, boutique system that delivers higher-caliber frames. Since then, he's found that his smiling customers generally need fewer frame adjustments and less warranty work. Instead of opting for cut-rate glasses that have been blessed with a flashy label, his shop opts for quality glasses made by actual eyewear experts, housing a vibrant collection populated by frames from brands such as Oliver Peoples, Ray-Ban, and Tom Ford. A friendly and knowledgeable staff curates this vast selection, and an onsite optometrist provides prescriptions for both glasses and contacts. TSO Optical fills these frames with lenses made in their own laboratory, an onsite facility that cuts back on turnaround time so that clients get their glasses quickly and don’t have to extend the rental on their seeing-eye eagles.
