A tough upbringing didn't stop Lincoln Wallace from achieving a happy, successful life. Now a seventh-degree black belt in karate, Lincoln opened Wallace Fitness to help others reach their fitness goals, and he wrote a book intended to inspire others to stay positive and achieve their own ambitions even when the cards seem stacked against them.
At Wallace Fitness, Lincoln Wallace and wife Siné, who is also a black belt, lead pulse-pumping personal training, self-defense, and strength-training sessions. Classes and personal-training sessions employ kickboxing workouts, TRX suspension cables, and interval training to spark the metabolism, burn fat, and build lean muscle mass.
Extreme Fitness Boot Camp guides clients toward trimmer frames with a medley of ACE-certified programming and nutritional guidance. The fitness gurus' personalized approach to all-around health begins with assessments, which isolate muscular imbalances and help trainees plot weight-loss goals. Boot-camp and personal-training sessions then lead trainees through plyometrics, core, and bodyweight exercises, plus special guest appearances by hip-hop- and Zumba-inspired steps. At home, clients further fitness excellence by leveraging recorded measurements, supplemental routines, and dietary tips on how to eat well instead of eating tire irons.
At Power Box Fitness, certified CrossFit trainer Shawn Albrecht and certified personal trainer Virginia Albrecht motivate guests of all fitness levels to improve their physical condition through an exercise regimen that varies frequently. Workouts are tailored such that each participant does the same exercises, but scaled to their ability level. Power Box's green-floored gym houses free weights, barbells, and tires, equipped with whatever may be required for a given day's workout.
Thumping music and flashing, colored lights infuse a spin class at Studio RPM with the energy of a night on the town. The powerful bass can't drown out the instructors' enthusiasm, however. The mic-wearing teachers lead their classes on excursions into unseen landscapes, leaping imaginary gullies and climbing intangible hills, the effort simulated by the Livestrong cycles on which each student is mounted. They welcome students of all ability levels, since the low-impact, cardio-focused exercise lends itself well to those who suffer from joint problems.
Beyond spinning, the staff also teaches regular yoga classes, covering extensive series of asana in each 75-minute course. They delve into Vinyasa, hatha, and warm yoga sequences, focusing on improving agility, increasing flexibility, and revealing snowmen disguised as humans, respectively. For a more high-intensity session, they lead boot camps, which incorporate weight lifting and plyometrics into cardio-heavy routines.
At Power Dance and Fitness, owner Jaimie Roberts and her instructors welcome locals to cardio-dance and fitness classes, such as Power Throw Down—a heart-pumping choreographed dance class—boot camp, and adult run conditioning. With bamboo sprung floors firmly in place, the studio promotes a high-energy atmosphere that blends fitness and fun.

Experienced instructors encourage and motivate participants in group fitness classes as well as intense personal-training sessions.
