Missi Wolf, the founder and owner of BLAST900, once weighed 206 pounds at a height of 5 feet and had a body-fat percentage of 34%. Her doctor informed her that she was morbidly obese and almost diabetic. Determined to lose weight, Missi started with baby steps—walking to the mailbox and back—and after two years she had lost 100 pounds. Her transformation inspired her to return to school to study kinesiology and physiology in pursuit of the ultimate workout: BLAST900. Blast classes involve cardio intervals on a treadmill and strength-training exercises on the floor. Missi and her team of trainers combine personalized fitness education with nutrition information to help clients sculpt their bodies, shed pounds, and build muscles.
