From the middle of the workday to the middle of the night, members are always welcome at Positive Body Personal Training & Fitness Center. The 24-hour gym lets members set their own hours, granting all-day access so guests can fit visits into busy schedules or boring overnight stakeouts. The staff keeps all the equipment clean and well maintained, so members can comfortably work up a sweat while curling free weights, flexing with LifeFitness circuit equipment, or watching the high-definition television screens attached to each cardio machine. Positive Body's team of trainers also gives members the instruction and encouragement necessary to get in shape though personal-training sessions and 23 group fitness classes.
Tiger's World of Martial Arts' signature Tigervascular class challenges patrons with cardio-heavy workouts founded in boxing and kickboxing techniques, and the MMA Fight Class prepares them for the ring with techniques from diverse arts such as muay thai, jujitsu, and tae kwon do. The kids' MMA classes focus more on arming youngsters with the mental fortitude to succeed in all areas of life, including school, dealing with bullies, and running for president at age 10. For adults seeking a long-term transformation, the 12-week challenge combines elements of exercise and diet into three months of intense training fueled by staff support and attention. Both male and female personal trainers offer private sessions.
The expert coaches at Chain of Lakes CrossFit cook up classes for athletes of all ages and skill levels based on CrossFit’s tenets of varied, functional fitness. Each WOD (Workout of the Day) varies from session to session, often fusing elements of track and field, gymnastics, weightlifting, and strongman exercises. No matter the inspiration, each workout is short and intense, with students often climbing ropes to the ceiling, performing lifts, or doing dips on suspended gymnastics rings. The regimen is designed to teach functional movements found in everyday life, improving students’ ability to push, pull, squat, jump, throw, sprint, or carry 100 pounds of groceries.

Pro Tip: Join playdates, mom's night out, and community events throughout the month in our Free Mom's Club.
Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
Our mission is to help you make strides in fitness, motherhood and life. In just one hour, you will get a full body workout leaving you ready and energized for what the day brings. Stroller Strides instructors weave songs and activities into the routine designed to entertain and engage baby, while moms are led through a series of exercises specific to her role as mom. We also offer playdates, mom's night out, and other community events throughout the month with our Free Mom's Club. We are more than a workout club, we are a community of moms building our strength together.
What is the biggest mistake you see people make when trying to get fit on their own?
That they are trying to do it alone.
Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?
Enjoy fun and playful activities with your child and build a tight community of like-minded moms to share advice, tips and, most importantly, laughter. We get together outside of class for playdates, mom's night out, and other community events throughout the month.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Stroller Strides is a total fitness program that moms can do with their babies. It includes power walking and intervals of strength and body toning exercises using exercise tubing, the stroller and the environment. For baby's safety, we ask that they stay buckled in strollers or worn by mom during the class.
Ross Kellin, owner and head instructor of Champions MMA, knows a thing or two about marital arts. He's not only a black belt in Brazilian jujitsu but a licensed boxing and mixed-martial-arts trainer and manager. His unique perspective of the sport, both in and out of the ring, has raised his team of fighters to become a powerhouse in the industry.
But Kellin, a Lakeland native, doesn't just concentrate on his rising fighters. He also turns his careful attention to kids, offering after-school programs, summer camps, and even birthday parties. And, for clients looking to up their fitness sans cage match, Champions MMA hosts a cardio-kickboxing program that uses Tiger Vascular Boxing Fitness workouts to obliterate calories.
