Ship Shape Boot Camp's enthusiastic instructors rally physiques of all fitness levels for personal training and group classes within a state-of-the-art facility. The instructors forge a supportive atmosphere with free-flowing words of encouragement to boost self-esteem and watch to ensure no participant is left behind or doing the hand jive instead of sets of burpees. Gals of all ages are welcome to women's boot camp sessions, which cover a medley of exercises to keep heart rates peaked during fat-busting routines. Weight training, swim training, and memberships are also available.
On any given day, students glide their way across the studio floor inside Dance Express Productions. In addition to their fitness classes, instructors help budding dancers learn the techniques of classical, contemporary and cultural dances. The studio?s belly dancing program welcomes all skill levels, from beginner- to performance-level students. Dance Express Productions is also the home of two performance ensembles that perform primarily for charitable events. The facility's fitness instructors are certified by the National Exercise Trainers Association (NETA) and also hold specialty certifications in yoga, Silver Sneakers, and CPR.
Exercisers whose idea of a boot camp involves cigar-chomping drill sergeants shouting at students might be surprised by Camp Adrenaline. Here, the certified personal trainers replace intimidation and yelling with positive reinforcement and constantly changing exercise routines. These rotating exercises not only break up the boredom of repetition, they keep the muscles guessing for more efficient workouts. During camps, campers converge in such scenic outdoor locales as the beach where they engage cardios, cores, and limbs in routines that incorporate games and challenges, which reward victors with free months of membership.
The instructors of Cherise’s Heavenly Fitness structure their lessons to adhere to the club slogan, “Where friendships are made and bodies are changed.” Instructors, including AFAA-certified Kelli Durrance, believe that when people have fun at the gym, they're more likely to continue their fitness regime (plus a little fun during exercise never hurt anyone). Whether sweating in a Zumba class, strengthening in a yoga session, or bench-pressing legal documents in a boot-camp class, students are surrounded by like-minded folk ready to slim their torsos and share a smile.
"Chiropractic chose me," says Doctor of Chiropractic Wendy Edwards of Be Well. After struggling to recover from an injury sustained in a car accident, Wendy found that chiropractic care not only relieved her pain, but stopped the chronic sinus infections and headaches that had plagued her all her life. She now helps her patients find wellness by focusing on four pillars of health: chiropractic care, eating right, staying active, and thinking well. Like actual pillars, these metaphorical pillars lend stability to the structure of one's life, but unlike actual pillars, they aren't self-aware.
With his forays into acting and politics, many people forget that Arnold Schwarzenegger was once a professional body builder and former Mr. Universe. Arnold Kolozsvari didn't forget?it was Schwarzenegger's superhero-like physique that influenced him to join the world of fitness training in the first place. Born in Hungary, Kolozsvari competed in the body-building sphere in Romania, armed with nothing but the diligence, drive, and metallic Skynet endoskeleton he borrowed from his idol Schwarzenegger. Fueled by a desire to train others, he eventually made his way to the United States, where he teamed up with the Revive?s other half, Danny Legault, a 13-year hockey veteran who devoted seven years of service to the United States Marine Corps. The duo joined forces and opened up their own fitness center, where they?ve since trained a client base that includes the Bethune-Cookman University baseball team and numerous Miss Florida and Miss America pageant contestants.
Kolozsvari and Legault happily adapt the functional movements in their boot camps and group cardio classes to suit students of any skill level, age, or physical ability, welcoming anyone ranging from teen athletes to senior citizens. To offer a rounded approach to physical fitness and overall well-being, they can also supplement group workouts with nutritional plans and one-on-one personal-training sessions.
