The certified personal trainers at Elite Fitness and Health know that no exercise, no matter how effective, will actually work if folks just aren't motivated. That's why the crew develops their programs around people rather than rigid fitness dogma. Bosu balls, yoga mats, or even empty sidewalks get wrangled into routines, keeping classes engaging. Though the trainers are keyed up to work with clients one-on-one, there's really no substitute for old fashioned peer encouragement.
