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.
Spa 23 Health and Racquet Club welcomes guests with a lobby caf? and juice bar where they can fuel up and debate their workout options. Some will decide to step out into multi-leveled workout rooms to exercise with weight- and core-training machines, free weights, cardio equipment, and stationary bikes. Others will run around the winding indoor running track or compete on one of two racquetball courts. Aquatic exercise takes place in a 25-yard Olympic-style swimming pool, which is also the best place to practice one?s Marco Polo skills. Alternately, visitors can retreat to multiple studios, where instructors lead classes in hot yoga and Pilates or step inside private rooms, where therapists ease tension with massages, mud packs, aromatherapy, and Pure Spa wraps.
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.
