Certified trainers Charley and Nat aren't fans of the typical big-box gym experience. They have their reasons: gyms are crowded, people don't wipe down machines after they're done, and the actual results of workouts can vary wildly. Another, more compelling reason is that they've simply found something better. It's called CrossFit, and it works.
Inspired by CrossFit's focus on functional strength, Charley and Nat opened CrossFit Navigate and began turning others on to the workouts. In each punishing session, they combine exercises such as squats, rope climbs, and tractor tosses to work out every major muscle group. They scale these exercises to challenge virtually any fitness level, from beginner to expert.
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.
Be prepared to do pull-ups, push-ups, dead lifts, and other functional exercises at CrossFit Semtex, since, as the name suggests, the facility's trainers adhere to CrossFit's regularly-changing workouts. During each daily workout, exercisers are given a series of functional exercises and encouraged to complete them as intensely as they can. Due to the workouts' functional nature, they can be scaled for nearly any fitness level, and due to their penchant for change, they can help exercisers overcome nearly any fitness plateau that doesn't involve being locked in an ice cream factory.
Self-discipline, confidence, determination—these are just a handful of the many attributes students gain from studying martial arts. It's no different at Amerikick, the national chain of martial-arts schools where youngsters, teens, and adults immerse themselves in classes that develop both physical prowess and strength of character. The Little Dragons program instills focus and coordination in children ages 5 to 7, and the Karate Kids track incorporates a character development program into its Judo and Kung Fu lessons. Adults have their pick of kickboxing and Amerikick Fitness classes, both of which help participants shed pounds, tone limbs, and learn self-defense moves that come in handy when fellow sports fans try to high-five them too aggressively.
