Ethel first started her body-sculpting business, B Fit Studio, by trundling equipment from home to home. Within a few years, she parlayed that initial success into a stroller-fitness program and group classes in her Pequannock studio while still sticking to the in-home sessions that helped her build her brand. In her inclusive studio, kids, tweens, and grownups jump into lifestyle-changing, calorie-blasting workouts that range from Barre core and mixed-level yoga to Fusion Method and Zumba. Repeat students never experience the same workout, as staff customize each class so that it differs from the last. Alternatively, clients can work one-on-one with personal trainers, or bring a fitness friend for extra motivation during the B Fit Buddy sessions. Buggy boot camp training helps moms get in shape, using the stroller as resistance while their infants encourage them with choreographed cheerleading routines.
BFF Fitness Boot Camp blends the high-energy atmosphere of a gym with the support system and nutrition advice of a weight-loss center. The certified personal trainers motivate fitness-seekers of all levels with positive reinforcement. They stage monthly weight-loss contests to celebrate achievement and fuel a healthy competitive spirit in their students, and write up detailed fitness reports every six weeks that outline workout results, areas of improvement, and frozen-meat-slab-punching speeds. Even their indoor air-conditioned gymnastics-style facility is supportive, outfitted with cushioned floors to reduce the joint stress of already low-impact boot-camp workouts. To further help their clients reach their fitness goals, they offer group personal training and nutrition counseling.
The trainers at Temple Qinesis take a holistic approach to fitness. That means they exercise not only the body but also the heart and mind. Their integrative method includes personal training, group classes such as CrossFit, and private yoga paired with nutritional counseling. With the ultimate aim being personal and community growth, exercisers can also take a break from the physical to play a game of chess against a new friend or someone who's been hogging the machine you want.
It didn't take long in life for Tiffani Ursillo to realize she loved spending time in the weight room more than her friends, but it took years for her personal passion to transform into a full-blown career. When her job in corporate America disappeared, she decided to earn a personal training certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine and pursue her life-long dream of being a fitness guru. She started training her friends and developing new exercise routines with her husband, eventually growing these group sessions into TNT Bootcamps.
Today, Ursillo helps men and women discover fitter versions of themselves via intense boot-camp sessions designed to exhaust and bolster the muscles. She supplements her boot-camp regimens with one-on-one personal consultations and free nutritional counseling, which is the only way to help bruised apples emotionally heal after being plucked from their favorite branch.
Lakeside Fitness Center has all the makings of your typical gym, but it wears the name ?center? with conviction. Members will find everything they want and need to workout?cardio and strength-training machines, free weights, group fitness classes, and the like?supplemented by something else: camaraderie. All members can enroll in a motivating and supportive boot-camp program, designed to push weight-loss and fitness goals into overdrive and build on that sense of solidarity.
Youth boot camp classes use a mix of cross training and cardio to tone muscles, and Piloxing combines Pilates with boxing into a fast-moving workout designed to strengthen the core. Relaxed sighs drift from the center's on-site spa, where therapists and aestheticians provide deep-tissue massages and rejuvenating facials tailor-made to fit the needs of men, women, and teens. The Center was recently named the winner of 201 Magazine's 2014 Best of Bergen Reader's Poll for Best Spin classes. Clients can check out the aware mention in 201 Magazine's upcoming February 2014 issue.
The track and field training staff at SCI has coached and trained more than 30,000 athletes?and that statistic is always growing. At his training facility, Sports Conditioning Institute, he and his team encourage athletes with sports-specific training, focusing on games including hockey and volleyball, and lead fit-seekers in two boot-camp styles. The common thread running through every workout is Vaccaro?s focus on avoiding overstressing bodies and preventing injuries. He emphasizes short and frequent workouts, for example, rather than long routines that can lead to sustaining injury, becoming burnt out, or accidentally running into another country without your passport. To complement coached workouts, the gym hosts an array of free weights and cardio machines for solo sessions.
