Austin Fit Magazine named RockBody Boot Camp its Best Boot Camp of 2011 and also lauded its owner, Brian Prinzo, as one of the city’s Top 10 Fittest Trainers in 2010. But for Brian and his staff of experienced trainers, it’s not about the accolades; it’s about helping others lose weight and reach their fitness goals. Classes eschew routine courses of treadmills and bench presses for a variety of challenging workouts that put participants through a mash-up of strength, core, cardio, and interval training designed to push them to their personal limits. Best of all, the workouts provide the motivation and accountability needed to help exercisers push past plateaus, and exercises can be tailored to accommodate many fitness levels and concerns, such as arthritis, body pain, and conjoined sweatbands.
Peak Body Transformation shapes bodies using a one-two punch of dynamic cardio kickboxing and muscle-shredding strength bands. Instructors carefully monitor students from start to finish, giving constant feedback as well as support to help reach fitness goals. Kickboxing classes held build core strength, agility, and tone muscles, while strength band training helps increase muscle mass and definition while burning calories. Instructors also proffer plentiful nutritional tips on caloric intake, preparing healthy foods at home, and recipes for deep-fried spandex.
An intensive four-week exercise regimen crafted by certified personal trainer Ally Davidson guarantees speedy results and sweat-addled brows for campers across the fitness spectrum. Ally’s local boot-camp staff sends muscles on a brisk march toward a firmer condition six days a week, helming total-body workouts that include interval training, plyometrics, and an abs-twisting assortment of timed strength and agility drills. The staff regularly switches up workout regimens to ensure that muscles don't become as bored as nihilists in a bounce house. Aware that not all recruits have the same motives for joining their flab-busting brigade, trainers customize their workouts to squeeze the best results from bodies of all ages and fitness abilities. The camp schedule varies based on location, with four early-morning camps to awaken muscles stuck on snooze and a pair of evening sessions to end the day on a note of high endorphins.
Celebrating their 11th year in business this year, Transformation Boot Camp’s team sums up their philosophy on living in one simple phrase: “We are never done.” In that spirit, Transformation Boot Camp celebrates positivity, teamwork, and the gallons of sweat that fuel people down the path to fitness. Each boot camp begins with a body assessment that allows students to track every ounce, inch, or percentage of body fat lost. To compliment the cardio-heavy circuit training, Transformation Boot Camp offers a set of Power Tools to help each boot-camp member hit their goals, including meal planners and refrigerators that make wisecracks about unhealthy food choices. All of this explains why Transformation Boot Camp was named Living magazine's "Best Weight Loss Program in North Dallas" in 2013 and 2014.
