The painful experience of watching his father endure several heart attacks, and eventually a heart transplant, left its mark on John Latham, but the effect wasn?t entirely negative. His father?s struggles convinced John, at the young age of 12, that fitness and nutrition are the route to a long, healthy life. Since then, he?s trained more than 40,000 clients. He complements personal training with nutritional consultations to boost weight loss, and he also leads group fitness classes.
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.
When Peter and Cherry Dewindt decided to open Camarillo Mixed Martial Arts and Fitness, they wanted it to be an independent studio. Eschewing affiliations with other, bigger companies, they opted instead for the freedom to develop their own martial-arts system: the Wind Combat system.

In addition to the Dewindt's personalized system, Camarillo also leads children's classes, fitness courses, and cardio kickboxing.
