Utilizing his skills as an ISSA and CrossFit Level 1 certified instructor, Rich molds trainees in personal-training courses and tandem workouts, and offers computerized body analysis and helpful food guidelines for upkeep of physiques.
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.
Though Dan Campos has been playing baseball and other sports most of his life, after high school he knew he could still be in better shape. After losing 65 pounds, he decided to enter a natural-bodybuilding competition and fell in love with the sport. Today he’s a professional bodybuilder and spends his downtime training others at Dan Campos Fitness. While bodybuilding is his focus, Campos's training methods range from individual training—onsite or in-home—to group boot-camp classes. He even provides online nutritional counseling, which includes tips for eating healthy and downloadable restraining orders against cake itself. Campos's flexible approach has created some loyal clients, including one whom he helped to lose 200 pounds over two years.

Yardley Fitness also offers personal-training sessions, which change according to each client's needs and goals.
