Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
We keep clients motivated through education on routines and nutrition. [B.L.A.D.E. stands for] Balancing Lifestyle Attitude Diet Exercise?to reach maximum results.
When and how did you first develop a passion for fitness?
Since I saw Arnold competing on TV. And I always wanting to be a bigger, faster, stronger athlete.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
B.L.A.D.E. is a place for everyone to come and work toward reaching their goals and to feel like they're part of the family as opposed to just being sold a membership.
Fort Sanders Health & Fitness Center offers a fun alternative to sitting on the couch and watching a movie: floating in an inner tube and watching a movie. Every year, the gym's heated outdoor pool turns into a "dive-in" theater, where families can lounge on the deck or in the water as a film plays on an inflatable screen.
Of course, the center advocates for more vigorous workouts, too. It has an indoor track, cardio machines, and free weights for visitors of all ages and abilities. Group fitness classes are available throughout the week, from Pilates and yoga to Les Mills BodyPump. Instructors also lead youth programs in tennis, aquatics, and martial arts, keeping kids active and primed for the triathlon portion of family reunions.
Led by co-owners Jeremy and Abby McDonnell, the coaches at Rocky Top CrossFit push exercisers toward their fitness goals by leading them through daily CrossFit's workouts. The regularly changing routines do have one constant: they all incorporate functional exercises such as squats, sprints, pull-ups, thumb wars, and deadlifts, and all moves are scalable to suit everyone from elderly students to experienced cage fighters. Newcomers to CrossFit are eased into program in introductory Fundamentals classes, during which, they'll learn how to perform the lifts correctly and gradually ramp up their intensity until they are ready to jump into regular workouts.
Members won't find a sea of machines inside Adaptive Fitness Warehouse. Instead, trainers whip bodies into shape with such fitness items as kettlebells, free weights, ropes, and heavy sleds weighed down with leftover Christmas presents. Adaptive Fitness's trainers can also customize workouts during personal and small-group training sessions, and adapt exercises to each individual?s physical ability during rigorous boot-camp classes.
At CrossFitRhema, passionate, experienced trainers push their students past their fitness goals with a high-intensity exercise program built around functional movement. Members of all body types and fitness levels tackle an ever-changing regimen known as Workouts of the Day, or WODs, with exercises such as lunges, pull-ups, jump roping, runs, and kettlebell swings.
Although each of the seven Just Fitness 4U locations has its own distinctions?such as the Lawrenceville location's 24/7 hours or the Marietta location's 25,000 sq. ft. facility and marble lobby?they more or less share the same tools for getting in shape. For starters, each is furnished with state-of-the-art Life Fitness and Hammer Strength equipment, which can be used or lifted to increase strength. Moreover, the facilities have a team of certified personal trainers and group fitness instructors who lead one-on-one workouts and fitness classes such Pilates, Zumba, yoga, and spinning, respectively.
