Through a challenging yet rewarding regimen of weightlifting, cardio, and calisthenics, Sin City Boot Camp helps people of all fitness levels build strength and self-confidence. An evaluation gets the ball rolling for each new student. After that, participants might find themselves deadlifting barbells in the indoor gym, or heading down the road to Sunset Park for a few rounds of pushups, burpees, box hops, and teleportations. Sin City's trainers make sure everyone stays motivated while pursuing their goals. They teach diet classes, too, explaining how to stay properly fueled for the workouts and boot camps.
Longtime fitness fanatic Mike Todd takes a realistic approach to physical training and nutrition. With 10 years of personal-training experience and advanced degrees in sports nutrition under his belt, Mike designs exercise programs that constantly push his clients, but in a manner that is safe and sensible. One of those programs, the Raw Body Boot Camp, tests strength, agility, and speed. A notable contrast to standard boot camps, Mike's boot camps rely almost solely on body weight movements, which enable exercisers to gauge more accurately when they've reached their limit.
Robert McMullin grew up living and breathing combat sports, honing his endurance, discipline, and strength since he was a teenager. He eventually channeled this passion into a career as a boxing coach, MMA fighter, and trainer on NBC’s The Biggest Loser. Through these experiences, he's shaped the knowledge that drives his revolutionary AMPD FitCamp method, AMPD being an acronym for Advanced Movements for Performance Development. His work has earned him a client list that includes kickboxing champion Rick Cheek, four contestants from The Biggest Loser and MMA's Team Tompkins.
Now, McMullin and fellow trainer Ray Chargualaf guide clients through a lineup of demanding custom workouts that combine the signature FitCamp method—plyometrics and cardio routines typically used by mixed-martial-arts fighters—with cardio kickboxing’s aerobics, boxing drills, and martial-arts moves. Both trainers work with clients to ensure challenging and motivating experiences for all fitness levels. Though the specifics are tailored to each client, primary end goals include improved aerobic capacity, balance and strength, and the ability to defeat at least one Power Ranger in hand-to-hand combat.
The exercise experts at Body Fit Las Vegas guide guests toward healthy hearts, toned muscles, and increased self-confidence at 64 weekly boot-camp sessions. A seasoned coach such as owner, trainer, and U.S. Army veteran Marcus Niemo equips students with moves that build stamina, core strength, and dioramas of the Battle of Bunker Hill. Each class teams cardio with isometric exercises to work all of the major muscle groups, providing a balanced workout that helps prevent injuries at the gym and comic wipeouts when skipping through fields of banana peels. The teacher can also help campers monitor their tickers and adjust the workout’s intensity to torch a maximum number of calories by hitting their target heart rate and uprooting fields of snapping Venus fly traps.
Paul Rosenberg, Branden Collinsworth, and Anthony Allegrete achieved success quite literally through blood, sweat, and tears. Paul worked his way up in the fitness industry for more than 20 years, where he started as a personal trainer and eventually took the helm of Real Results Fitness. Branden overcame a poverty-stricken childhood marked by homelessness to become a trainer, businessman, and philanthropist. Anthony provides the company with a unique marketing strategy with his unique perspective. Despite their storied careers and busy schedules, visitors most often find the duo leading circuit-training classes in their downtown gym, sweating alongside their students.
The head trio isn't the only talent on staff. Master fitness trainers Sean Freitas and Heidi Masi lend their expertise to students as they lead circuit training, yoga, and personal-training sessions. Professional boxer Lonnie Smith gets hearts and fists pounding during fast-paced cardio-boxing classes. They supplement training with nutritional information and packaged meals from Paul's other entrepreneurial endeavor Real Meals, which helps clients adhere to a 12-week, health-focused eating plan. They also provide stretching sessions and massage work to help bodies recover from a hard workout, minor injury, or chronic stress. Real Results Fitness strives to encourage clients to make a lifestyle change with their multi-faceted approach to fitness.
As the sun starts to rise over the grassy fields and hiking trails of Paseo Vista Park, the Sin City Waist Trimmers morning class is already hard at work. Instructors' voices echo through the cool morning air, guiding and motivating students of all shapes and sizes through a diverse array of high-intensity exercises. Morning and after-work classes help exercisers roast calories on the running trail, slim midsections through core drills, and increase endurance while participants flip massive tires across an open field. The friendly trainers welcome students of all athletic abilities, never singling students out or barking commands like a drill sergeant trying to win respect from a pack of hounds.
