Nearly every kind of person has found success at 2XR Boot Camp Cross Fitness—from college students looking for some structure as they strike out on their own to adults who've lost upward of 100 pounds. During these indoor boot-camp sessions, clients avoid the boredom that often causes people to abandon exercise programs, because each session incorporates an ever-changing routine of cardio and resistance training. People of all fitness levels benefit from the boot-camp program, since the exercises are easily tailored to both beginners and more advanced athletes. During a boot-camp session, participants maximize fat-burning results with quick spurts of sprinting intermixed with walking and jogging on the treadmill—known as high-intensity interval training—along with suspension work designed to engage the core, and a variety of weight-training exercises. Campers might try out everything from whipping heavy battle ropes up and down to getting on the floor for pushups, burpees, and rounds of playing dead.
VIP Fitness Studio offers patrons a more personalized, intimate space for bulking up or slimming down. Guests pound out an early morning workout using free weights or Selectorized strength equipment, log some miles on the treadmill, or channel Clubber Lang at the gym?s 100-pound heavy bag. A cast of chiseled personal trainers help patrons set and succeed at their fitness goals and take on thumb-wrestling challengers at the tables of the gym?s all-natural juice bar.
Tabata Bootcamp’s motto is quality over quantity, and certified fitness instructor Stacy DiGiacomo takes this to heart as she pushes her patrons to reach their weight-loss and fitness goals. To help them carve fitter frames, she leads high-intensity cross-training sessions in 30-minute intervals, with a focus on getting an effective total-body workout in a short period of time. She targets patrons’ upper, lower, and core strength with exercises that consist of 20-second microbursts of intensive movement, followed by 10-second periods of rest. These workouts are designed to speed up the body’s metabolism to ensure optimal caloric burn after exercising and can multiply the muscle-building effects more effectively than regularly dreaming about being a world-champion weightlifter. For well-rounded results, she also offers nutritional guidance and arms patrons with quick workouts they can complete in the comfort of their own homes.
Even if their clients never intend to step into the ring, the certified trainers at Mittwork Fitness LLC train them with some of the same techniques as prizefighters. Through a noncontact quartet of boxing, kickboxing, MMA, and fitness classes, the coaches foster svelte frames and stronger limbs with combinations of mitt work, heavy-bag workouts, and boot-camp-style exercise. Meanwhile, students gain confidence and soak up the fundamentals of martial-arts techniques without ever having to spar with other students or engage in competition.
BFF Fitness Boot Camp blends the high-energy atmosphere of a gym with the support system and nutrition advice of a weight-loss center. The certified personal trainers motivate fitness-seekers of all levels with positive reinforcement. They stage monthly weight-loss contests to celebrate achievement and fuel a healthy competitive spirit in their students, and write up detailed fitness reports every six weeks that outline workout results, areas of improvement, and frozen-meat-slab-punching speeds. Even their indoor air-conditioned gymnastics-style facility is supportive, outfitted with cushioned floors to reduce the joint stress of already low-impact boot-camp workouts. To further help their clients reach their fitness goals, they offer group personal training and nutrition counseling.
