Certified trainer and W.O.W. Fitness founder Kameelah Wesley was never into athletics. But she did want to live a long and healthy life, so she enlisted the services of a personal trainer. The transformation she witnessed was beyond anything she ever imagined. It was this intense personal experience that opened her eyes to a greater social epidemic: obesity. That’s when she decided to begin her war on excess weight, and W.O.W. was born.
Kameelah’s fitness programs emphasize functional strength training with a focus on proper form and stability. These principles are carried out in four-week boot camps, personal-training sessions, and cardio dance classes performed with a host of free weights, stability balls, ellipticals, and heavy bagpipes. In addition to fitness training, Kameelah and her team assist students with diet plans and lifestyle coaching.
Owned and operated by fitness consultant Kathleen Rea, Regeneration offers yoga, Pilates, yogalates, and cardio sculpt classes for keeping the body as close to its factory settings as possible. The yogalates class is the result of cross-breeding yoga and Pilates, both of which are also offered as separate classes, and is designed to maximize the body's muscle tone, improve its flexibility, and pour a fresh batch of strength into its core. During the cardio sculpt class, light weights and resistance training help tone bodies while increasing the odds of out-swimming an angry hippo. Walk-ins are welcome, but calling ahead is preferred.
At Legit Fit Boot Camp, there are no machines. There are no televisions. There aren't even mirrors. The center's certified instructors take a no-nonsense approach to building strength and endurance by using simple weights, balls, and bars atop a stark rubber floor in each of their diverse fitness routines. Though the staff strives to stave off needless distractions, they detest boredom as well. That's why they keep muscles guessing by combining numerous exercises from different workouts and varying those exercises each day. The curriculum of jumping jacks, squats, and hopscotch games on hot coals ensure students never know what to expect, and the staff's enthusiastic demeanor keeps them focused on their calorie-burning mission.
Led by former college football player and Master Drill Instructor Delnorte Chunn, the crew at Fitness Bootcamp Inc. shows its clients how to boost endurance, increase muscle, and lose weight using only their bodies as resistance. Over the course of the outdoor boot camp, which combines strength and cardio training in functional exercises, participants track their daily deeds in food and workout logs. In turn, the staff keeps them motivated with daily support and nutritional education, as well as a survival party at the end of the camp.
