Brandon Cornelius has been an athlete his entire life, but it wasn't until he had finished playing college football that he decided he wanted to devote himself fully to helping others get in shape. That's when he became certified as a personal trainer and started BranNewBody, the company through which he's developed an intense workout that's helped hundreds of people lose weight and build muscle. There's more to his method than the workout, however; he also doles out nutrition advice and designs workout plans people can do on their own or with him during one-on-one sessions.
Athletic Factor Gym & Fitness Center's 20,000-square foot interior is a fitness-fanatic's paradise. Here, visitors can leisurely pump free weights or climb aboard the expanse of professional cardio machines. Meanwhile, ample studio space hosts martial arts classes, still leaving enough room for guests to exercise with their personal trainer. Between sweat sessions, visitors can replenish electrolytes or power up with protein smoothies at the juice bar, which is stocked with an array of shakes, energy drinks, and healthy snacks.
If you want to keep up during the boot-camp, personal, and sports-specific sessions at Beastmode Training South Florida, it helps to have the right type of fuel. That's why the trainers supplement their intense workouts—which include exercises such as dead lifts and slamming sledgehammers against oversized tires—with nutritional-counseling services. During the sit-downs they draft eating plans using healthful foods such as fruits, vegetables, and fitness-themed birthday cake.
