Strength, power, endurance, and agility. These are just four of the 10 components of fitness that the instructors of Commando Fitness promises to help its students improve. This was the dream of US Army vet Mark Daniels, to draw together his talent for personal training and his military experience to help others get fit. Virtually all of his trainers bear a military background, made evident by the workouts that use military techniques that helped soldiers the world over prepare for battle. Contrary to expectations, these instructors keep students motivated without screaming, yelling, or the use of fire. No two workouts are exactly alike, which helps students stay interested, and they take place in almost any kind of weather.
It might come as no surprise that a professional bodybuilder-turned-personal-trainer would name his fitness venture More Pain Please, but Michael Harris doesn't just mean physical pain. He believes that a truly effective fitness regimen addresses the mind as well as the body. To achieve this, he custom molds fitness regimens to an array of body types and lifestyles, always keeping the client's fitness goals in mind. He implements these plans inside the Las Vegas Athletic Club's modern facilities—but if clients prefer a more natural environment, he can also schedule sessions amid the greenery of local parks. Michael Harris is also certified in First Aid and CPR, ensuring he can get clients safely through their workouts.
Mommy & Me West brings together local moms so they can socialize while their little ones play and interact with their peers, learning to share and make friends. The club coordinates daily activities such as arts and crafts and music sessions, as well as play groups, parties, and Mom’s Night Out events. These entertaining and educational experiences contribute to Mommy & Me West’s goal of facilitating child development from birth to kindergarten and fostering relationships between the community's parents. As a nonprofit organization, the group is run by volunteers and membership fees go toward funding events.
At Bodysport Fitness Center, highly trained instructors motivate pupils of all athletic abilities during high-intensity group boot-camp classes designed by experienced personal trainers. During each coed session, a barrage of full-body workouts replaces lazy fitness routines and helps build lean yet strong physiques. Each trainer adapts his or her program to fit the personalities and abilities of the students, and changes the regimen routinely to confuse muscles, enraging them until they get strong enough to do something about it.
Exercisers feed off each other?s energy during the fun 45-to-60-minute sessions, cultivating a group bond and camaraderie based on mutual success and encouragement. The recently revamped program may incorporate elements of kettlebells, free weights, kickboxing, and even yoga alongside classic boot-camp musts, including calesthenics, plyometrics, core workouts, and primal screaming. During comfortable weather, students work away excess calories in scenic outdoor parks and move into the gym?s 8,400-square-foot facility in cases of extreme heat.
