Bogged down by 80-hour work weeks and realizing the effects of his poor eating habits, Josh Boyd and Derek Graham made a major life change. Already suffering from hypertension, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and addictions, they put themselves through a 12-week program in order to get healthier. In that time, they both lost more than 40 pounds and dropped their body fat percentage from from over 28% to below 5%. The results astounded friends, family, co-workers so they decided to team up with Scott Perry to open “The 12” Training & Wellness to help others attain their same level of success. Their system involves detox and body-fat analysis, as well as cardio and strength training. At his gym, he and his team also lead classes based around plateau-proof exercises to complement the program.
Inside, Josh and Derek develop personal training programs in a group environment. Here, clients partake in high-intensity workouts that include three-phase metabolic training to target alternating muscle groups. Diverse classes target alternating muscle groups while customizable works guide participants toward their goals. In addition to devising intensive training programs, “The 12” Training & Wellness offers personalized nutritional programs, including 10-day cleanse and detox programs, weekly body-fat analysis, and heart-rate monitoring.
Few professionals can credit Flashdance with rerouting the course of their career. In fact, Richard Giorla could be the only one. The unconventional dance moves he saw in the film motivated the former Pennsylvania Ballet Company member to hit the streets of his new home, Manhattan, and learn breakdancing from dancers at the heart of the movement, trading his own dance expertise as payment. Richard?s career was in full swing when, struck with an injury, he started teaching a ballet-barre class. Though he appreciated its stretching and toning components, Richard craved a more aerobic workout. So he created his own solution?Cardio Barre.
The unique workout consists of high-energy, zero-impact movements that sculpt the long, slender body of a dancer without a student ever having to step foot in a traditional dance studio. As they balance on the ballet barre, or whichever classmate is closest, pupils direct all their focus to one muscle group at a time, while the entire body stays in motion for maximum fat burning. His approach?s pudge-busting abilities have made the fitness method a favorite of many health magazines and celebrities.
At the Center for Living Peace, bright-orange mats unfurl amid orchids, grasses, and rays of sunlight in preparation for Smiling Monkey Yoga, in which kids unwind with deep breaths, joyful movements, and mind-centering exercises. To help kids build strength and flexibility, the studio's founders and teachers, Patrice Simon and Amy MacConnell, intersperse traditional yoga poses such as wheels, locusts, and trees with games that hone social skills and coordination. Deep inhalations and exhalations direct kids inward, where they unlock wisdom about themselves and their relationships with others. In addition to fueling self-exploration, these breaths can be applied in their daily lives to help them cope with conflict and defuse stressful encounters with teachers, bullies, or the Boogey Man and his big scary dog. Children aged 3 and younger may experience yoga during Baby and Me classes, where parents melt tension and forge friendships through a series of relaxing poses.
CrossFit Doctrine is a school of fitness and well being whose staff works hard to represent their philosophy by encouraging all clients achieve their health and fitness goals. To a novice who hasn't attempted CrossFit before, some of the regimen's intense workouts?like flipping a truck tire, doing hand-stand pushups, and breaking bad guys' motorcycles in half?might seem almost impossible. But by abiding by the practice of functional movement, students hone in on the safest, most efficient use of physical energy. The workout depends on two other key concepts: constant variety, which is achieved by performing a completely different exercise every day, and high intensity, which maximizes the effect of a workout that might take less than 15 minutes. With these principles in mind, the instructors at CrossFit Doctrine design classes for beginners, experienced trainees, and even those in need of physical therapy, and ensure each workout comes with a hefty dose of group motivation to help students reach their fitness goals.
