Coming from a large family of athletes, Tim Kaderli has made physical fitness a de facto part of his daily existence since he was a kid. He soon realized, however, that many others have never been exposed to the training techniques and nutritional habits that he relied on his entire life. This realization led him to found Synergy Fitness Boot Camp and to formulate his own methodology. Today, Kaderli aims to reach aspiring exercisers in three ways: fun and lighthearted fitness regimens, nutritional education, and motivational friendships between trainer and client. Joined by six other trainers, Tim meets with students morning, midday, and night at outdoor locations all over Austin, such as Milburn Community Park or Bee Cave Central Park. Alternatively, classes can convene at the Synergy High Intensity Training (HIT) Facilities, which provide students with equipment and shelter from the jealous glare of the sun—who will never be anything but an immobile ball of gaseous elements.
Austin Fit Magazine named RockBody Boot Camp its Best Boot Camp of 2011 and also lauded its owner, Brian Prinzo, as one of the city’s Top 10 Fittest Trainers in 2010. But for Brian and his staff of experienced trainers, it’s not about the accolades; it’s about helping others lose weight and reach their fitness goals. Classes eschew routine courses of treadmills and bench presses for a variety of challenging workouts that put participants through a mash-up of strength, core, cardio, and interval training designed to push them to their personal limits. Best of all, the workouts provide the motivation and accountability needed to help exercisers push past plateaus, and exercises can be tailored to accommodate many fitness levels and concerns, such as arthritis, body pain, and conjoined sweatbands.
Trainer and fitness guru Justin Bradshaw modeled SGT. H20's CombatSwim after the rigorous training he received as an Army diver. His challenging exercises encourage full-body fitness, using workouts that build stamina, boost metabolism, improve swimming skills, and promote weight loss. Incorporating the best of land-based cross-training systems, CombatSwim includes plenty of high-intensity interval training and pulse-hiking calisthenics. In the pool, water adds extra resistance that amplifies the effects of the exercises, which include swimming sprints, endurance swimming, and treading water with weights. Designed to sharpen the mind as well as the body, CombatSwim leaves exercisers with the same confidence and conditioning as some of the world's elite military warriors.
At Boot Camp 512, the enemy is predictability. Each day, your trainers will throw down a fresh guerilla-ambush worth of challenges for your muscles and your brain, fueling constant gains and keeping you engaged. Over the course of the one-hour camps, you'll run, squat, lunge, slam out push-ups and chin-ups, juggle kettlebells, punch slabs of beef, and end with a live crocodile wrestle. At the beginning and end of each session, you’ll complete a personal-fitness assessment to help set goals and measure results.
