Even before he founded PowerFit Bootcamp, JR Spear always felt a calling to transform people into fitness machines. A fourth-degree black belt and studied martial artist, Spear spent years training future Marine Corps officers and Iraqi soldiers in self-defense and combat skills. Later, Spear taught his own MMA fitness and cardio-kickboxing classes, along with personal and group training sessions.
At PowerFit Bootcamp, he and his staff of fitness instructors encourage each student to persevere by leading motivational and high-energy classes. At 12 indoor and outdoor locations, students undergo full-body workouts designed to jettison fat and tone muscle. Trainers welcome students of all stripes, giving them a period of time to complete each move, rather than a number of repetitions, encouraging each student to do as much as he or she can without feeling uncomfortable, overexerting, or resorting to time travel. Along the way, coaches track progress and motivate students by noting benchmarks during physical fitness tests on the first Monday and Tuesday of each month.

A will coupled with power of attorney allows you to retain control of your estate and wealth even after you've died or decided to take a 30-year nap. Together, you and Redler will forge a legally binding document that specifies who inherits what and how your life accomplishments should be preserved, paid, or parceled out. Power of attorney, meanwhile, authorizes a designated party to speak on your behalf and to act as an advocate for your interests even when you're playing ping-pong with death in a persistent vegetative state. It's the most logical way to plan for the future and the only way to ensure that your priceless collection of vice-presidential action figures won't be carelessly sold off by an unappreciative family.
