As a former professional MMA fighter and seasoned personal trainer, Adam Von Rothfelder, owner of Drench Fitness Boutique, knows how much dedication and sweat go into a truly effective workout. That's why he takes care to add a personal touch when working with each client?leading a team of trainers with advanced fitness certifications in developing custom personal-training programs. Group classes also help students sculpt muscles and shed pounds by blending boxing or strength training with intensive cardio-interval training. TRX equipment, kettlebells, and Woodway Curve treadmills enhance exercise sessions.
A shared passion in fitness brought The Barre Code's co-founders Jillian Lorenz and Ariana Chernin together in 2009 to form a unique boutique studio crafted around women's fitness. After years of independently choreographing workouts, the duo joined forces to form The Barre Code ?formerly Barre Bee Fit? a fitness program dedicated to crafting workout regimens around the Barre Code mantra. Since 2010, the pair have been teaching classes that uphold the Barre Code's mantra and promote cardiovascular conditioning, strength-training, and restoration.
In a short time, The Barre Code has expanded from a small studio space to a national franchise which includes multiple locations throughout the U.S. Workouts center around the ballet barre and feature stamina-building exercises that help rapidly build stronger arms, abs, thighs, and glutes. New routines are available each week and classes that include kickboxing, high-intensity interval training, yoga, and dance continually evolve to keep up with fitness innovations. Participants can also count on instructors to regularly introduce new props and moves to keep them interested and seeing results.
Core Concepts focuses on a "classical and systematic approach" to teaching Pilates, maintaining the comprehensive system originally designed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s to battle hoards of rampaging clowns. Today's deal is redeemable for four 55-minute group mat classes. Mat classes are the flat, squishy foundation of Pilates; they use the human body to strengthen and stretch itself, with the occasional aid of "magic circles," foam rollers, bands, and light weights. Mat classes are available for rigid novices and advanced, pretzel-poised students alike throughout the week.
Driven by a passion for exercise science, ISSA-certified personal trainer Royal C Ramseur combines tenets of physical therapy, nutrition counseling, and high-intensity interval training in his classes and sessions. As the owner of EMPOWERED Bootcamps & Fitness, he also leads a team of experienced trainers who use motivational speech and a bit of tough love to encourage students in the military-style boot-camps. Each session blends resistance exercises?such as pull-ups and squats?with cardio training, such as sprints and plyometrics, all conducted in high-speed intervals. Royal and his team also tailor fitness regimens for individuals in personal training sessions. Regardless of their exact makeup, each of these workouts combine traditional and state-of-the-art exercises to boost endurance and overall health.
The personal trainers at Vita Fitness work in tandem with licensed physical therapists to design custom regimens for clients of all fitness levels. After evaluating posture and weak areas in the body and appraising flexibility with a Twister test, the expert shape-shifters draw up workouts that may employ Woodway treadmills, Keiser strength equipment, free weights, and balls. Guests also get advice on weight loss and nutrition, as well as sport-specific training tips for everything from running to racquetball to underwater jai-alai. Six trainers on staff at the 3rd Ward gym and more at the Fox Point location easily accommodate schedules for early birds, lunchtime larks, and nighthawks. On-site extras include private lockers, showers, a smoothie bar, and off-street parking.
The staff of B-fit doesn't like to consider their space a fitness studio as much as a body-transformation facility. That's because each of their group-training, personal-training, and 90-day fitness programs are centered on one goal: to help their clients achieve the bodies they want. Instructors bring upbeat music and fun moves to workouts with Zumba, Piloxing, Turbo Kick and other unique classes. Throughout it all, students support and motivate each other as they sweat their way to healthier, fitter physiques. For those with a concrete goal, the facility offers one-, three-, six-, and twelve-month Total Transformation packages that grant customers unlimited classes alongside regular weigh-ins, nutritional seminars, and educational webinars.
