Dennis and Jennifer Lesniak, use their chiropractic and exercise-science training to tailor intense, boot-camp-style workouts to clients of all ages and fitness levels. A constantly rotating menu of exercises such as hero squats, pull-ups, dead lifts, and pushups aim to get bodies in well-rounded physical shape, often incorporating strength-supplementing props such as kettlebells, jump ropes, and wigs made of Samson hair. Dennis and Jennifer also work to build a welcoming community atmosphere by memorizing each client’s name over the course of multiple sessions.
Drs. Jennifer and Dennis Lesniak(http://lesniakchiropractic.com/ about/) utilize their experience as athletes and their education in exercise science to immerse customers in a conditioning regimen deigned to work out the entire body.

A proper cool down ends each workout while the instructor addresses comments, concerns, or suggestions from the newly fatigued class. Boot-camp sessions convene 12 times throughout the week with Drs. Jennifer or Dennis leading most of the classes while suggesting ways to tailor exercises to individual fitness levels and preparing students to crab walk their way through ultramarathons.

The gym's walls reach up to 20 feet above the ground and their features include bulges and slopes to help climbers prepare for real rocks or real trophy rooms of big-game rock hunters.
