St. Louis Fitness Boot Camp's creator and head trainer, Johnny King, knows how hard it can be to start working out. Enormous corporate gyms seem designed to intimidate the new exerciser, and the workout genies trapped inside at-home DVDs can only offer motivation after they’ve been put in the player. That’s why he made it his mission to design an exercise program geared toward beginners, providing a low-stakes introduction to training and plenty of positive motivation.
He constructs easy-to-follow circuit training routines that alternate between working the lower body, core, and upper body, relying on the combination of exercises over time to whip bodies into peak shape. His small groups of trainees often encourage one another and help keep one other accountable to exerting their maximum effort during routines. Within the climate-controlled facility, exercisers shed sweat and pounds on spring-loaded floors that ease impact on joints. To supplement the workouts, he and the trainers provide nutritional counseling and even emotional counseling, gently reminding each student why they chose to start working out.
Shane Perrin’s love for the standup paddleboard led him to set a world record as the first person to use the simple vehicle to travel the Missouri River’s 340 miles between Kansas City and Columbia. His trek even made him the subject of the documentary Stand Up Guy, which chronicles his odyssey against more than 100 kayakers and canoeists in the sixth annual Missouri River 340.
When he’s not looking for another stretch of water to conquer or out paddling for the Pau Hana Surf Supply team, Shane shares his passion through lessons and guided tours for all levels of outdoorsmen. Venturing out onto waters such as the Meramec River, Shane pays meticulous attention to every detail to help guests have a positive, memorable experience. He starts by matching each client with a standup-paddleboard outfit that suits their stature, which facilitates proper maneuvering. He then provides ongoing training as he guides guests past wildlife such as deer, hawks, and the beavers who built the river’s hydroelectric dams.
Professional balloon artist Jason Vaughn's work transcends the usual tricks by crafting aesthetically pleasing twisted balloon-sculptures, having created everything from basketball players to a bouquet of roses. During your 90-minute lesson, you'll learn to twist quality biodegradable balloons into exquisite dogs, giraffes, elephants, flowers, bears, and swords. Twist up a myriad of creations and take home supplies to continue your skills at home, as you'll get a balloon pump, balloons, and an instructional DVD along with the class. Make a splash at the birthday party, wedding, or school event, or host an all-balloon light-saber re-enactment. Classes are open for all ages 5 to 120 and for groups of up to 25 people.

The fit-focused instructors at Boot Camp Challenge mold feeble flesh into paragons of power with a barrage of training techniques. The program's 60-minute classes tone and tighten physiques of all ages and types, from collegiate fitness friends to steel-gripping grandmothers, and a group structure provides support, camaraderie, and an opportunity to seek constructive feedback on your shirt-tearing muscle flexes. Each session focuses on cardio and strength training, including functional exercises, circuit training, plyometrics, and core conditioning. Boot Camp Challenge varies the routine of every workout, keeping regimens fresh and interesting while eschewing monotonous techniques such as counting barbell reps with an abacus. Pre- and post-training assessments will tally how many cowardly pounds fled freshly toughened surfaces, and nutritional guidance keeps tabs on what fuels are used to energize newly supercharged muscle machines.
