The trainers behind Look Good Naked aim to get people comfortable in their skin. They have a slew of shared resources, such as nutritional guides, progressive measurements, and a weekly newsletter filled with exercising facts, meal ideas, ongoing coaching and support, and testimonials from clients. All these augment the core of the operation—the 12-week boot camps where both trainers and fellow students repurpose the benches, jungle gyms, and stairways of parks and public spaces during four, hour-long sessions each week. The sessions teach guests a slew of functional training maneuvers that require little or no equipment, helping them not only to slim down, but build up a skill set they can carry with them as they leave the camps.
Kosama offers a fitness plan that's based in science and backed by proven results. Confident in their program's advantages, the fitness experts guarantee transformational outcomes. The fitness approach incorporates muscle confusion, nutrition, consultation, and heart zone training. Workouts often incorporate "confusion" by using tools such as kettlebells, plyometrics, kickboxing, and Whoopi Goldberg's Oscar.
During initial fitness evaluations, exertion levels and heart rates are analyzed. Fitness trainers then arm everyone with heart monitors and display workout performances on screens during classes to ensure students are pushing themselves. These tools help build stamina and train bodies to burn calories even after sessions are done. Online meal planning and vitamin profiling tools are available to members to maximize results. Encouragement is also an important factor in all of Kosama's programs. In each class, instructors foster supportive environments where students challenge and motivate each other.
Together, Jose Lara and Amara Kamara wrack up 25 years of experience in fitness and rehabilitative fields. At Boot Camp MSP, they funnel that wealth of exercise and physiological knowledge into heart-blasting, muscle-busting workouts. Unlike regular gyms, where exercisers are liable to inhale recycled air or errant medicine balls, Boot Camp MSP gets exercisers into the great outdoors, holding each session in either Nelson Park or Elm Creek Park Reserve. They combine this outdoor body blast with nutritional seminars led by a licensed dietician.
Though their mission is to whip their clients into shape, their methodology is a relaxed one. “If it is not fun, then don’t do it,” says Amara. “For me, making you laugh at loud during your session is one of the many [things] I love about this job.”

In addition to hosting workouts, the studio gives clients the tools to achieve full-body wellness, including skin treatments such as microdermabrasion and chiropractic services, which can ease chronic pain and melt stress faster than a sauna powered by glowing compliments.

As soon as you step through Fit 12's doors, it's easy to see that this isn't your average 24-hour gym. The foyer is covered in marble and inside, you'll find HydroMassage and red-light therapy beds.

Expresso stationary bikes. Their Freemotion weight training machines help clients work abdominal muscles, arms, legs, and chest with proper positioning and posture. For a more guided workout, clients can take advantage of the gym's personal-training or boot-camp sessions.
