Her all-female staff of certified personal trainers helps exercisers of all fitness levels shape their bodies during group fitness classes. In an effort to challenge muscle memory, the team shakes up workout regimens by using different techniques and equipment?including kettlebells, resistance bands, and lead sweatpants?each day. Melody?s team also helps exercisers retain their results by supplying nutrition support with meal plans and recipes that use healthy ingredients.

Before he founded Bradshaw's Boot Camp, Justin Bradshaw was a deep-sea diver for the U.S. Army. The rigorous training, diving missions, and underwater construction jobs building fish schools inspired him to motivate others to push themselves to reach their fitness goals. At Bradshaw's Boot Camp, he designs ever-changing workout routines for his high-intensity boot-camp classes, incorporating nutrition to create well-rounded lifestyles for his clients. The plan works—he's been featured alongside one of his many successful weight-loss clients on ABC's The View and serves as the official trainer on MTV's I Used to be Fat.
The certified master trainer at Core Group Fitness wants his clients to build strength they can use for more than just lifting heavier and heavier weights. Instead of working them with weight machines that build muscles in a single direction, he motivates students through TRX sessions, which use the body’s weight as the primary resistance. Students’ big main muscles hold them up while their smaller secondary muscles keep them from toppling over from lack of balance. This ballet of coordination builds solid, reliable strength that’s applicable in real world situations, which is why TRX has been used to train military and police personnel.
