It didn't take long in life for Tiffani Ursillo to realize she loved spending time in the weight room more than her friends, but it took years for her personal passion to transform into a full-blown career. When her job in corporate America disappeared, she decided to earn a personal training certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine and pursue her life-long dream of being a fitness guru. She started training her friends and developing new exercise routines with her husband, eventually growing these group sessions into TNT Bootcamps.
Today, Ursillo helps men and women discover fitter versions of themselves via intense boot-camp sessions designed to exhaust and bolster the muscles. She supplements her boot-camp regimens with one-on-one personal consultations and free nutritional counseling, which is the only way to help bruised apples emotionally heal after being plucked from their favorite branch.
Lakeside Fitness Center has all the makings of your typical gym, but it wears the name ?center? with conviction. Members will find everything they want and need to workout?cardio and strength-training machines, free weights, group fitness classes, and the like?supplemented by something else: camaraderie. All members can enroll in a motivating and supportive boot-camp program, designed to push weight-loss and fitness goals into overdrive and build on that sense of solidarity.
Youth boot camp classes use a mix of cross training and cardio to tone muscles, and Piloxing combines Pilates with boxing into a fast-moving workout designed to strengthen the core. Relaxed sighs drift from the center's on-site spa, where therapists and aestheticians provide deep-tissue massages and rejuvenating facials tailor-made to fit the needs of men, women, and teens. The Center was recently named the winner of 201 Magazine's 2014 Best of Bergen Reader's Poll for Best Spin classes. Clients can check out the aware mention in 201 Magazine's upcoming February 2014 issue.
One can look behind every stationary bike or beneath each treadmill, and never come across a man at American Woman Fitness Center. They will, however, find a swimming pool, rows of cardio machines, and a studio that hosts more than 50 fitness classes. Because the health club only admits women at its two locations, gals can feel more comfortable and confident as they break a sweat on elliptical machines and weight-training equipment.
The all-female staff leads a slew of group fitness classes, including CrossFit, Corebar training, Zumba, and yoga classes, some of which take place in the swimming pool and can result in highly desirable dolphin abs. In addition to classes, they offer personal-training sessions along with weight-loss and nutritional counseling tailored to female physiques. Clients can also monitor their children in the childcare area via TV screens while they work out in cardio or group fitness areas.
The track and field training staff at SCI has coached and trained more than 30,000 athletes?and that statistic is always growing. At his training facility, Sports Conditioning Institute, he and his team encourage athletes with sports-specific training, focusing on games including hockey and volleyball, and lead fit-seekers in two boot-camp styles. The common thread running through every workout is Vaccaro?s focus on avoiding overstressing bodies and preventing injuries. He emphasizes short and frequent workouts, for example, rather than long routines that can lead to sustaining injury, becoming burnt out, or accidentally running into another country without your passport. To complement coached workouts, the gym hosts an array of free weights and cardio machines for solo sessions.
At Do Well Be Well Training & Performance, working out can involve anything from ballet barres to barbells. The gym's group fitness schedule compiles together all sorts of different class styles to appeal to students of all ages, abilities, and tastes. Barre classes, for example, blend elements of modern dance, ballet, and Pilates into a single toning whole. Meanwhile, the weight-lifting workout, Group Power, blends barbell work with tried-and-true moves such as squats and lunges. And the amenities at Do Well Be Well are as eclectic as the workouts. On-site massage therapists relax worn-out physiques with chair massages, and parents can drop their kids off at an on-site childcare center, where the walls are decorated with pictures of famously in-shape cartoons.
