Greg Crawford, the owner at My Training Gym, has fitness certifications from three associations: National Strength and Conditioning, US Weightlifting, and World Kickboxing. This mixed background allows him and his staff to keep hearts pumping, engage all the muscles, and avoid boring routines. Traditional boot camp routines get a dose of boxing and kickboxing drills mixed in. This variety extends to the schedule and the pricing, as well—aside from boot camp sessions, there are programs such as boxing and kickboxing classes and personal training.
To supplement the fitness classes, Greg offers a 21-day kick-start and body transformation package. It’s designed to help nurture one to total health through nutritionally sound meal plans, self-improvement workshops, daily affirmations, and regular high-fives from the 1975 Harlem Globetrotters.
At Parisi Fitness Center, visitors boost their health and well-being not only through the professional guidance of a staff of fitness specialists but also through the support and motivation of their fellow members. In this friendly group environment, guests give their lower back and core muscles a tune-up during Nancy Gorra's Pilates Reformer classes. In one-on-one personal-training sessions, a team of extensively certified personal trainers and fitness experts ensure that clients maximize their workout efficiency and refrain from accidentally swallowing any free weights. After sweating to Latin tunes during Zumba sessions, or targeting and toning problem areas with boot-camp workouts, members can pick their kids up from the complimentary childcare center, or enjoy a muscle-building shake or light fruit beverage from the juice bar.
CKO Kickboxing's instructors and personal trainers lead troops of exercisers through heart-pumping kickboxing workouts centered on hitting heavy, dangling bags. Students wrap their hands and take to the bags with punches, kicks, and knees at their own pace with encouragement from instructors. The team of instructors rotates regularly to provide students with new lessons each time, and bags are routinely switched to give them time to convalesce.
