David Kadzielewski spent 15 years as a trainer and a manager in several big gyms. Over and over, he saw a pattern repeat itself: the gyms would become impersonal, customers would tire of mass mailings, and individual attention would be replaced with a one-size-fits-all approach to fitness. So David set out to do something different: he founded
Latitude 47 Fitness , whose comparatively smaller size and higher levels of personal attention help programs stay client-focused. The fitness side of Xhale features equipment, such as cardio machines and treadmills that can be bench-pressed, along with classes and personal training. Wellness experts also offer nutritional guidance. Spa treatments include massage and saunas. While parents work out or get a tan, kids can roam free in a supervised play area.
A certified CrossFit trainer, Drew Barquist eschews the typical gym workout in favor of a variety of intense exercises. This approach prepares his trainees to expect the unexpected and come to appreciate the well-rounded workout. As a competitive athlete, Barquist has seen the effects of this training regimen on his own weightlifting endeavors. He's also watched his clients overcome mobility problems and chronic pain. Rather than work out of a gym, he brings his training sessions to clients' homes to they can avoid making excuses such as "I don't have time" and "someone glued all my doors shut."
