A successful exercise regimen involves just as much inspiration as perspiration, according to the certified trainers who helm motivFit. Their fitness and nutrition programs don't just teach participants to count and burn calories; they jump-start lives by pairing goal-focused coaching with group accountability. Designed with both fun and safety in mind, challenging outdoor workouts empower participants to make exercise a part of their daily routine. Aerobics and trail runs torch calories instantly, and weightlifting and resistance training rally the metabolism by building lean muscle mass. Group activities such as relay races build camaraderie, transforming participants into teams that motivate one another. The workouts can be tailored to any fitness level, allowing new exercisers and elite athletes to train side by side. As pounds and inches melt away, confidence grows and self-esteem blooms as boldly as a tulip watered with Buzz Aldrin's joyful tears. Nutrition resources such as recipes and meal plans complement the workouts, helping participants forge healthy lifestyles for the long haul.
Instructor Jodi Conroy embraced The Bar Method lifestyle while learning from and eventually teaching under its creator, Burr Leonard. Jodi then opened her own franchises in an effort to acquaint more Californians with The Bar Method's signature mix of interval training, isometric exercises, dance-conditioning moves, and low-impact techniques gleaned from physical therapy. During routines, patrons unfurl legs and stretch spines into balance-affirming positions, often utilizing a ballet bar for leverage rather than anchoring legs in recycled Christmas-tree stands. The muscle-lengthening workouts build stamina while streamlining physiques and have garnered praise from such celebrities as Drew Barrymore and Anna Paquin. The Santa Barbara Independent has commended Jodi's "clean and pleasant" Santa Barbara studio, as well as its "personable and funny instructors [who] do an excellent job of supporting each student."

In under two years, what started as a humble boot camp founded by Taryn Landberg has grown into a full-blown fitness powerhouse. In addition to the signature camps, NASM-certified trainers lead a number of programs, each designed around specific goals. Classes range from basic group workout sessions that spur exercisers on with peer support to the Women's Elite Training, a CrossFit-style workout that focuses on strength building without the competitive atmosphere. Taryn's Transformation in 60 sessions incorporate her fitness and nutrition knowledge to get folks fit in two months by teaching them how to develop long-term lifestyle changes. No matter the program, Dream To Be Fit sticks closely to its founding principles, keeping class sizes small to avoid the impersonal atmosphere of big-box gyms.
Clarity, connection, and community. It's Yoga Everyone's philosophy, as they work with the belief that everyone—no matter their experience with yoga—can find clarity through a yoga practice.

Specialty programs include therapeutic yoga care classes that cater to students with chronic conditions, clients recovering from surgery or illness, or those suffering from conditions such as high stress, sleep issues, or anxiety.
