Born and raised in India, Setniwas Vashist grew up saturated in the practice of yoga. Once he got to the States, he spent the next 25 years learning about Ayurveda. At more than 5,000 years old, Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest healing arts, and its use of 100% natural herbs for ailments such as kidney stones, depression, and allergies remains largely the same today as in ancient times. Setniwas and his son Nikhil use yoga in tandem with Ayurveda herbs to foster healthier bodies and deeper mind-body relationships.

Sweat Factory's trainers expect hard work of their exercisers, but for good reason. Their CrossFit workouts change every day, which means muscles never become complacent and stop changing. CrossFit's blend of conditioning, gymnastics, weightlifting, and throwing helps clients power right through weight-loss plateaus.
Originally founded by a pair of professional wakeboarders looking to train during the off-season, Clermont Crossfit has now become a year-round community of aspiring athletes. The trainers describe their classes as instructor-led and peer-driven, combining one-on-one coaching with the motivation and accountability of working with an encouraging group. They follow the CrossFit method of inventing new workouts every day, a strategy designed to keep muscles from becoming acclimated to the exercises and consuming fewer calories, while also staving off bordem. In any given class, they might incorporate gymnastics, Olympic weight-lifting, kettlebell training, or rowing, one of the few exercises in which it is socially appropriate to wear a viking helm.
