At All Women's Fitness, a certified personal trainer is always with clients to guide them through the 30/30/30 program. A combination of 30 minutes of weight training, 30 minutes of cardio, and 30 minutes of nutrition consultation, the program emphasizes weight loss, conditioning, balance, core strength, and flexibility. Trainers offer one-on-one sessions, small-group training, and seniors' and teens' sessions.
Created by fitness pioneer John Spencer Ellis, the Adventure Boot Camp method combines the physical boon of varied exercise with the invigorating effects of teamwork set in the great outdoors. The program incorporates strength-training and cardio drills into constantly changing classes, which are paired with expert nutritional guidance to streamline physiques. Pre- and postcamp evaluations summarize the progress of each participant and highlight evolutionary changes such as sprouting a third arm to pump more iron.
In Petaluma, campers heed the daily directives of certified personal trainer Jayme Larson, whose drive to enhance the health of others stems from an impressive fitness history. His competitive experience in karate, football, and wrestling augments his boot-camp routines with martial-arts and sports-conditioning moves, and his Level 1 kettlebell-instructor certification has led him to replace his hands with the bulky weights. Jayme specializes in guiding clients of all ages and abilities, welcoming inexperienced campers as well as accomplished athletes to his classes.
Making use of the motivation provided by friends and the beauty supplied by local parks, the duo of instructors behind ecoFit takes troupes of women outdoors for calorie-busting exercise in the sunshine. Wendy Welling, who is an ACT-certified personal trainer, and Stephanie Evans, who studied exercise physiology and nutrition at UC–Davis, lead their workouts multiple times a day, varying routines throughout the week to provide quick results in increasing their clients' general levels of fitness and ability to tell the difference between Monday and Tuesday while blindfolded. As a grateful gesture to the community spaces that make this type of exercise possible, ecoFit gives 2% of its annual revenue to Santa Rosa city parks and California State Parks organizations.
As a gymnastics coach, Kaia FIT founder and owner Nikki Warren always noticed how children in motion tumble and play with ease. They were effortlessly agile and flexible, and yet many of them would grow into adults who would struggle to stay active. Kaia FIT sprang from this realization with the goal of restoring female physiques to the adolescent pliability everyone enjoys before they grow their rock-hard exoskeleton after sixth grade. In a welcoming environment, the expert coaches retrain bodies with dynamic workouts designed to strengthen muscles, boost energy and confidence, and vanquish fat. They root the sessions in functional training, a method that enlists athletes' own body weight and movement to stimulate fitness.
Programs range in intensity and length for exercisers of all ages, fitness levels, and goals, from six-week BRIK boot camps, which debut a fresh workout regime for each season, to Saturday Power Hours, which blend interval, strength, and endurance training. CORE Session boot-camp classes unfold in five-week intervals between BRIK camps and use muscle-confusion techniques to keep bodies in better shape than fad diets or preserving them in amber for swimsuit season would. The various regimens invite women to join a community where they dedicate themselves to maintaining their health and fitness.
Barriers exist to be broken, according to Mike Ward, the certified coach and teacher who helms CrossFit 38N. With hard work, dedication, and a supportive team, they can be shattered into a million pieces, like a piñata made of phyllo dough. Inside Mike's 3,500-square-foot gym, seasoned instructors lead strength and conditioning classes filled with rowing, running, calisthenics, and Olympic weightlifting. In addition to bolstering power, speed, and endurance, these high-intensity workouts inspire students to set the bar higher, whether competing in a pole-vault contest or chasing a promotion at work. Barbells, kettlebells, gymnastics rings, and other functional training tools fuel a rotating lineup of exercises that can be scaled to different levels of skill and strength. Designed for beginners, Elements classes emphasize proper technique as they impart CrossFit fundamentals such as burpees, box jumps, and muscle-ups. As students grow fitter, coaches ratchet up the intensity and incorporate activities that promote flexibility and mobility.
