Sponsored by Jerseys Pizza & Grill, Jerseys Music Festival focuses on one of the few things that pleases a crowd like a pizza—live music. While live sets from local bands fill the air with festive beats, the crowd listens while noshing on food and beer specials tastier than the traditional music festival meal of a guitar full of Jell-O.
Anchored by owner and certified personal trainer Damon Burrell, Heaven and Hell Bootcamp's staff of workout wonks help clients conquer fitness goals in group boot-camp classes and private training sessions. With a regimen of 15 boot-camp classes lasting 40–45 minutes and held every weekday—as well as three Saturday morning sessions—Heaven and Hell keeps chests heaving, heart rates thumping, and sequined leotards shimmering at a rate that suits almost any schedule. The high-octane group workouts change each day, but typically feature agility training, calisthenics, cardio exercise, and core strengthening achieved by hoisting dumbbells, jumping rope, and stealing medicine balls from the nests of predatory birds of flight. For more individualized attention, the gym plumbs the murky depths of clients' fitness capacities to craft custom training regimens for use in private personal-training sessions.
A joint venture between a professional boxer and a team of successful kickboxing-equipment tycoons, Title Boxing Club maintains a network of dozens of studios spread across 19 different states, winning over a devoted clientele with its invigorating and engaging boxing- and kickboxing-themed classes. Each workout uses the heart-healthy exercise of cardio training to satisfy people’s innate desire to punch and kick something other than a broken jukebox. Participants build lithe, strong muscle tissue by delivering powerful blows to punching bags, and build flexibility and agility by practicing roundhouse kicks and hooks. Students can build their core strength and endurance with medicine balls and burpees, enlist a qualified personal trainer to practice their newfound skills in the ring, or just torch calories during intense full-body Power Hour workouts.

As an athlete, Ivan cut his teeth running track and field, and playing on a Division I college soccer team. As a trainer, he’s coached triathletes and MMA fighters such as Gideon Ray and Shonie Carter. He now draws upon all this experience at Powered By Ivan Training Systems.
Making use of TRX suspension training, kettlebells, and battle ropes, Ivan teaches courses that focus on each tool individually or combine all three. TRX helps muscles work in concert, while kettlebells combine more traditional isolations with heart-pumping cardio. Battle ropes eliminate impact from exercise, saving the joints and giving students the feeling that they are winning a never-ending game of tug of war.
