The certified personal trainers at Personal Power Training travel to various fitness studios, clients’ homes, or outdoor locations on a mission to burn the fat off their trainees’ bodies. They call upon years of experience to find the right exercises to help clients see results as quickly as possible and get them motivated to continue until goals are met. In addition to losing weight and building muscle, they also focus on improving sports performances and boost quality of life by relieving pain carried in the back, neck, joints, and gills.
The Firefly Run combines the rigor of a 5K and a 10K race with the kaleidoscopic colors of a light show. LED beams and lasers pierce the dark, leading racers decked out in light-festooned gear through nighttime streets and parks to raise money for charity. Race coordinators keep competitors bright by encouraging them to wear costumes fitted with glow sticks, cartoonish helmets, light-up armbands, or any other light-themed decoration. Beyond the finish line, runners and audiences alike celebrate at a postrace dance party with live entertainment, visual effects, and a costume contest that rewards unique outfits and the athlete who was able to ward off the most gremlins.
In parks throughout the United States and Vancouver, Access Boot Camp's certified personal trainers continually perplex muscles with a new 60-minute routine each class. The drills blend resistance exercises with cardio routines such as running, calisthenics, and sparring against defibrillators, striving to shed fat and toughen physiques. Clients might wrestle against resistance bands, hoist small dumbbells, or partner up for bodyweight moves. In addition to holding personal-trainer certifications, every boot camp instructor has undergone Access's specialized, and because classes are capped at 20 students per trainer, attendees get plenty of face time and individualized tips. Friendly faux drill sergeants lead the alfresco workouts rain or shine, and only cancel classes during plagues of spandex-devouring locusts.

From the indoor lap pool to the hardwood-floored class studio to the lineup of machines and free-weights, the 17,000 square-foot facility houses a whole variety of fitness tools, including a staff of helpful personal trainers. Membership includes access to a variety of amenities, such as racquetball courts, a dry sauna, and all the clean towels one could possibly dream of.
FITTQuest began in a college classroom in 1990. A group of athletes wondered if they could build a machine to test how much body fat a person had. They successfully created the device they imagined, and began sharing it at gyms all over Arizona. They even opened their own locations specifically to provide the service.
The business transformed over the years, as clients wanted help to change the numbers the bodyfat monitors reported. The owners decided to expand into training services, though they kept their commitment to science by enhancing their routines with well-researched modes of exercise. Today, they blend intense interval cardio training with classic weightlifting, tailoring the exact mix of the two to meet clients' specific goals.
