At Red Carpet Boot Camps’ fitness center, trainers motivate others toward fitness through classes such as spin, yoga, and Reformer Pilates. When not in the gym, trainers lead their charges outside for 60-minute boot-camp sessions that combine everything from their classes, as well as resistance, cardio, and calisthenics. Understanding that pushing muscles to their limits is only part of the equation, Red Carpet also offers nutrition coaching.
Crunch caters to exercisers of all interests and fitness levels, cramming each state-of-the-art fitness facility with name-brand equipment and a welcoming, nonjudgmental attitude. Members have the opportunity to pay for access to each club's diverse syllabi of classes, organized into categories such as action sports, chill outs, and dance rhythms. DIESEL classes incorporate interval training with cardio interval bursts for a total-body workout. Fat Burning Pilates combines cardio- and Pilates-based toning to help cut out cellulite. Aerobics with an Attitude sends students in a free-spirited dance workout without any rules or judgment. Crunch also offers personal-training sessions that begin with a physical assessment and include a comprehensive body-composition analysis. One-on-one drills foster the seeds of self-improvement, as this level of personal attention allows the experts to forge an engaging workout as well as a custom nutrition plan for each exerciser.
Even if clients can't make it to the gym, Crunch Live turns any living room or office into a workout space with an online video library of over 35 workouts. Students sweat and move along at home to easy-to-follow exercise routines led by energetic trainers as they tone targeted muscle groups and burn fat with courses in yoga, core strength, workouts for athletes, or Pilates.
?Never follow someone up a mountain if they have not already conquered it themselves," advises wellness instructor and RCBC owner Silvia Castro. By that standard, she's well worth following when it comes to getting in shape. After shedding 160 pounds and keeping it off for seven years, Castro?also known as InStyle Silvia?is determined to help others achieve their own transformations.
RCBC's calendar is filled with boot camp classes that not only incorporate cardio and resistance training but also nutritional guidance to help clients look and feel healthier. The studio also offers Real Ryder spin classes as well as yoga, Pilates, and women's pole fitness.
The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
Some gyms call themselves a family. Grinder Gym finds the term "tribe" more apt. Like tribes, their members span all ages, walks of life, and fitness levels, and they all stick together for one common cause: fitness. At the helm of the tribe is nutritionist and personal trainer, Dave DePew, who's been working toward optimum health since the early age of 8, and has since developed a lifelong philosophy of "diligent daily fitness". Said philosophy—which values continual progression over immediate perfection—includes scientifically proven dietary plans paired with a variety of workout routines designed to suit individual goals, whether that's developing more bulk or finally being able to outrun the neighbor's pet cheetah. To help clients hit these fitness targets, he and his team lead high-intensity classes, such as Total Body Kettlebells and Core & Cardio, that rely on functional movements and resistance training. They also lead classes such as Blood & Guts, during which they challenge participants with obstacle courses and a mix of cardio and strength training. All of these classes and techniques have resulted in some of Dave's students losing anywhere from 16- to 44-pounds and dramatically dropping inches around the waist.
