Perhaps what sets Drive Health & Fitness apart is its trio of owners: they include a personal trainer and nutritional consultant, a doctor specializing in obesity prevention, and Nick Groff, a paranormal investigator on Travel Channel's Ghost Adventures. Or maybe what sets Drive apart is the fact that members can access the equipment 24 hours a day. Those who prefer to work out in groups can opt for fitness classes or yoga sessions, and personal trainees work with trainers who each have at least 10 years' experience.
Maybe what draws some exercisers are the club's amenities, such as the dry saunas, glass-walled showers, juice bar, and onsite childcare. Whatever guests like most about it, they enter Drive Health & Fitness to find a laser focus on health and a sea of smiling faces ready to help them meet their goals.
Fuel Training Studio turns routine workouts into challenging tests of mettle, keeping muscles and minds engaged and healthy with one-on-one training or community-focused group classes. Cofounders Jeanne Carter and Julie Bokat, and their staff of eminently skilled trainers, educate pupils in their unique Fuel training method, which has been formulated through years of training and extensive certifications.
Fuel's philosophy focuses on helping clients through their everyday family life and activities by building functional strength?keeping muscles guessing with intense bursts of cardio and strength training that boost metabolism and efficiency. Clients enhance their muscle tone and agility with indoor barbell and heavy-bag boxing techniques, or Versus cable-suspension training. Outdoor boot-camp classes combine strength, core-building, and cardio workouts into fun packages, allowing students to build rippling abdominal muscles while they admire waterfront scenery and challenge songbirds to wrestling matches.
Angel Baez put more than 14 years of personal-training experience into Intense Physique Personal Training. He uses his specialized training in sports conditioning, kettlebell workouts, and nutrition to help clients achieve their fitness goals during one-on-one and group boot-camp sessions. He begins each personal-training program with a detailed assessment of BMI and muscle strength, and he takes his boot-camp groups indoors and outdoors for intense TRX, heavy-rope, kickboxing, strength-training, and circuit exercises.
Led by certified strength and conditioning specialist and four-time NCAA All-American Art McDermott, Fitness Revolution’s professional trainers encourage men and women of all shapes and sizes to set healthy goals, providing personal attention and supportive instruction. In brisk sessions of 45 minutes, intensive boot-camp classes help torch calories and chisel flabby frames into muscle masterpieces that would send Michelangelo's David into a jealousy-fueled Cheetos binge. Trainers utilize a 3,000-square-foot facility to march sluggish muscles along the pathway toward better fitness, eschewing spittle-laced tirades for cheers and nonthreatening back slaps. Fitness routines constantly vary, as trainers prescribe stronger doses of medicine balls and check the tone of barbells to ensure that they resonate with increasing levels of strength. Because getting buff requires a brawn-building balance of diet and exercise, a certified nutritionist offers nutritional recommendations to help students make educated nourishment decisions and deflect the cinnamon roll’s siren song. With rolling start dates and diverse session times, Fitness Revolution eliminates the excuse of scheduling conflicts and allows students to develop the bodies of their dreams whenever they see fit.
Inside Evolutions Fitness Training’s 3,000-square-foot fitness facility, patrons craft well-rounded health regimens amid mirror-lined walls, Nautilus weight machines, TV-clad cardio equipment, and a variety of free weights. Led by motivational instructors, boot-camp and Zumba classes prevent stagnation with energetic music and challenging routines that spice up traditional workouts without replacing barbells with live mountain lions. The gym’s certified personal trainers push clients through plateaus or jump-start training, elucidating proper form and the necessary nutrition to build a strong, healthy body.
