The nonjudgmental and welcoming atmosphere at Complete Training reflects the mentality of owners and certified trainers Wil Blowe II and Kyle Winton. The two lead group boot-camp glasses for all skill levels packed with rigorous or beginner circuit training. During these sessions, Wil and Kyle use a variety of equipment designed to make the muscles work, including BOSU exercise balls, resistance bands, and dumbbells. They also bring their extensive sports backgrounds and positive attitudes to one-on-one training sessions, and Wil can lend his decade of experience in tumbling to train individuals interested in doing backflips, front flips, or profoundly athletic pancake flips.

Initially established as a social outlet for aspiring exercise participants, Scenic City Boot Camp has since successfully coached hundreds of un-trained students of all ages prepare for major fitness events. During one-hour classes, which are held indoors and outdoors, weather permitting, a seasoned instructor guides students through an ever-changing routine of moves inspired by methods such as interval training, proper breathing, running, and recovery techniques. To keep campers accountable and motivated, some classes offer nutritional food plans, track their progress with before-and-after measurements, and occasionally test their reactions to sneaker-shaped inkblots.
It's hard to get out rock climbing regularly. Basketball courts don't fit in the average home. The facilities at The Rush Fitness let everyone get in an exciting workout, though, with climbing walls, pools, athletic courts, and more. At 23 locations in Knoxville, Chattanooga, Dalton, Asheville, Greensboro, Winston Salem, High Point and Greenville, skilled trainers preside over those amenities. They also lead more than 500 group exercise classes, which might touch on everything from yoga to Zumba. Those classes, as well as the requisite array of free weights and cardio equipment, have helped the chain win a range of "best gym" awards.
