The certified and degreed trainers of Body Evolution don't judge themselves by their personal accomplishments, but by their clients' results. Body Evolution trainers know that every person is mentally and physically different, so no single fitness approach will work for everyone. Trainers Vince Hogue and Tristen Hines also adhere to this principle, and use their experience to draft workout regimes that inspire clients, nurture their health, and reduce daydreams of owning a house made of Twinkies. To ensure he continues to give clients an optimal workout, ACE nationally recognized and CPR/AED-certified trainer Walt Fleitz regularly attends seminars and studies new methods. His favorite quote from Maya Angelou sums up his beliefs the best: "People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing with the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 500 calories with each go-round.
Classes are held inside GymTyme All-Stars on Eastgate Parkway (Monday–Friday at 5:30 a.m. and 7 a.m., Saturday at 8:30 a.m.) and Fitness Factory on Breckenridge Lane (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 7:15 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday at 5 p.m.).
