First-time campers kick off with a comprehensive, one-on-one consultation with a certified fitness consultant. Then, during each session, boot-bodies can expect varied total-body workouts heightened by exercise formats such as resistance training, jump roping, kickboxing, Pilates, partner drills, short-distance running, and encyclopedia ripping-in-half. At the end of four weeks, goals are assessed and firm, silent, head nods of confidence are exchanged. Long Beach Boot Camp requires that all campers bring the following equipment to each session: exercise mat, set of hand weights, resistance band, and water bottle.
The origin of Team Appleby Fitness is a tale of two Applebys. Steve Appleby grew up in Southern California, and led a very active lifestyle until the age of 17, when he lost his leg in a motorcycle accident. Determined, Steve rehabilitated and transformed himself, eventually making a career out of helping others do the same.
Tanya Appleby, meanwhile, hails from Northern California. For awhile, she led an inactive, unhealthy lifestyle. Then she met Steve in 2000. Inspired by his story, she, too, underwent a transformation, eventually dedicating herself to helping others just as Steve had years before. Today, Steve and Tanya both boast multiple certifications, including personal training. They combine their decades of experience to offer a variety of training programs, assisting clients in weight loss, muscle training, endurance training, and more.
Making the decision to eat healthier and exercise more won't just help you look better, it can also save your life. House of Fundamentals founder, Dino Mosley, is a perfect example?overweight as a child, he quickly changed his eating habits and began exercising after he learned he was at risk for coronary artery disease and high blood pressure. Encouraged by the results, he went on to become an athlete, and eventually and studied nutritional counseling and strength and conditioning in college.
Today, at House of Fundamentals, Dino is helping others turn their lives around. He instills his simple motto, "train hard, eat healthy", through interactive programs, including 60-minute functional training workouts that blast calories and tone muscles. He also offers one-on-one training sessions that address client's individual goals, whether they want to lose weight, boost agility, or work more leafy greens into their diet or amateur magic acts.
The coaches at CrossFit Virtue believe in the CrossFit system because its virtues are applicable in the real world. Since the system incorporates full-body exercises that use functional everyday movements, it readies its charges for anything from picking something up from the floor or getting out of a chair to playing a sport or running a marathon. It also makes activity safer by increasing durability through the strength and flexibility earned from those exercises. At CrossFit Virtue, instructors ease newcomers into the system with fundamentals classes, and they also offer one-on-one training.
