Certified fitness trainer and weight-loss coach Carolyn Stone's voice echoes across local parks as she motivates boot-camp students toward stronger, healthier versions of themselves. Having shed 110 pounds, Stone is familiar with the trials and tactics needed to conquer weight-loss obstacles, tackling them with a one-two punch of proper nutrition and regular exercise. She varies her high-intensity, yet fun, workout routines each day, scaling movements to accommodate each student's fitness level. Stone encourages healthful habits outside the classroom with nutritional coaching, helping students change their lifestyles with nutrition facts, meal plans, and snack ideas. After class, students have the opportunity to join their fellow classmates at the Breakfast Club, starting the day with smoothies packed with less than 250 calories.
In addition to boot camps, Stone also helps patrons shape up during one-on-one and small-group personal-training sessions. She develops dynamic, custom programs tailored to each client's fitness level and desired results, such as looking sculpted on his or her wedding day or carving washboard abs chiseled enough to clean wedding-day attire's red-wine stains.

Body-length heavy bags sway from blows dealt by boxing and kickboxing participants. They’re working up a sweat, but they’re not worried about getting hit back unlike the participants in the boxing ring. At TITLE Boxing Club Loveland, West Chester, and Hamilton locations, participants shed calories and relieve stress by pummeling bags or going toe-to-toe with a trainer wearing punching mitts. Either way, the team of trainers oversees participants’ safety and techniques during each of their workouts. TITLE Boxing Club welcomes families and participants of all ages.
Inspired by their participation in the Firefighter Combat Challenge FireFITT’s founders translate a training program generally reserved for professional firefighters into a regimen suitable to individuals of any fitness level or vocation. Much like mailing wedding invites without stamps, the team maintains a limited class enrollment of no more than six students, allowing instructors to personalize workouts for individuals while still cultivating the camaraderie of a group environment. This program emerged from the founders challenging themselves in 2006 to participate in what ESPN has called the "toughest two minutes in sports", during which a pair of firefighters square off to race through a gamut of five tasks. Over time, the team built out their own course where they could practice for competitions. Just outside the indoor space, students find the crown jewel of FireFITT’s training course, a five-story training tower used by fireman to practice scaling flights of stairs in full uniform.
