BFF Fitness Boot Camp blends the high-energy atmosphere of a gym with the support system and nutrition advice of a weight-loss center. The certified personal trainers motivate fitness-seekers of all levels with positive reinforcement. They stage monthly weight-loss contests to celebrate achievement and fuel a healthy competitive spirit in their students, and write up detailed fitness reports every six weeks that outline workout results, areas of improvement, and frozen-meat-slab-punching speeds. Even their indoor air-conditioned gymnastics-style facility is supportive, outfitted with cushioned floors to reduce the joint stress of already low-impact boot-camp workouts. To further help their clients reach their fitness goals, they offer group personal training and nutrition counseling.
There are only a few certainties in life, two of them being the sun rising every morning and the folks at TNT Fitness Studio opening their doors when it does. The steadfast exercise facility invites the public to work out or cleverly disguise a sweating problem seven days a week, hosting group fitness classes that range from dance-based Zumba to martial-arts infused Pilates and yoga sessions. Teachers also conduct classes geared toward kids aged 6–12, including yoga and hip-hop dance.
At Evolution Fitness, NASM-certified personal trainers and former college athletes Desiree McGhie and Anthony Lambo help clients exceed their personal fitness goals and build healthy self-confidence with one-on-one training and group classes. Boot camps help students build functional strength and burn calories through cross-training techniques, flexibility exercises, and core workouts. And specialized courses and events—such as cooking classes and lunchtime corporate workout packages—help them integrate healthy choices into their everyday lives instead of relying on fad diets and inflatable muscle suits to make them look good. A safe environment, direction, motivation, and intense workouts help customers see results quickly.
"You chart your fitness course. We'll be the compass." That's how the team at Fit X think of their roles in clients' fitness journeys. Group classes abound, manned by teachers who guide Pilates and Zumba workouts. But with an arsenal of exercise equipment available to them, Fit X gymgoers are just as likely to devise their own workout regimens. Whether enjoying a supportive group environment or jogging on a treadmill in blissful solitude, clients retain control over their own experiences.
The instructors at Vida Wellness Studio help patrons work towards fitness and overall happiness through workshops and fitness classes. Chattering drumbeats ripple from speakers during belly-dance sessions, which draw on techniques from Oriental, Caribbean, and Latin American dance traditions to bolster flexibility and build core strength. Little feet patter on the floor during kids’ classes that encourage fitness and self-expression through dance. When not eliciting choruses of relaxed sighs through yoga poses, instructors draw upon boxing and martial-arts techniques to tone your physique and make it more believable that Die Hard was based on your life. Core strengthening is maximized by controlled movement through Pilates training. Special wellness events at the center have included nutrition classes and musical jam sessions.
Real Body Boot Camp founder Bernadette Silva has always made time to work out. Even when while running her private psychology practice and raising three energetic kids, she developed her own high-octane workout regimen. With a blend of boxing, yoga, Pilates, and sports drills, participants burn fat and build lean, powerful muscles through fun exercises that fully engage the mind and body, unlike boring runs on the treadmill or the confusing twists and turns on stationary bikes. In addition to strengthening bodies with TRX, boot camps, yoga, and barre classes, clients build valuable self-defense skills through krav maga training under martial arts expert David Ordini.
