Sports played a vital role in coach Jaws Bulivou's childhood in Fiji, whether he was barreling down the rugby field, hefting heavy weights, or matching wits and muscles with opponents in Judo. After years of coaching volleyball for boys' and girls' clubs, as well as Olympic gold medalists, Bulivou discovered a new passion for fitness through cross-training. Rather than boring bodies with long bouts on the treadmill or marathon phone-book recitations, cross-training regimens keep participants fully engaged with randomized Workouts of the Day that emphasize building functional strength with high-intensity exercises. Today, at Jaws' gym Pasifika Fitness, students train and tone their sinews not only with gymnastics, plyometrics, rowing, and barbell-hoisting, but with a steady, careful attention to their nutrition.
A self-described “CrossFit junkie,” CrossFit Gold’s lead instructor, Ben Alderman is a passionate proponent of the all-encompassing strength-and-conditioning program. Beyond achieving a CrossFit Level 1 certification, he has competed in numerous competitions, including the OC Crossfit Throwdown, where he placed 12th out of a field of 500 athletes. He shares his passion by leading classes that follow CrossFit’s dogma of constantly varied, functional fitness. To keep muscles guessing, students sweat through the Workout of the Day (WOD), which, like auditioning for a first date, could incorporate body-weight exercises, weightlifting, or cardio. At any given moment, students might be doing burpees and pull-ups on one side of the gym, while the other side might show them climbing ropes, performing lifts with bumper plates, or doing dips on suspended rings.
Each day, the trainers at CrossFit Sacramento challenge their members with a new workout, wringing sweat from every muscle with exercises based on high-intensity, functional movements. Other than a pair of Livestrong bikes and a few rowing machines, they've kept their blue-and-green gym free of most traditional gym equipment. Here, gymnastics rings dangle from frames, climbing ropes hang from the ceiling, and rows of medicine balls and kettlebells line the walls. The instructors can modify the workouts to match almost any ability level, accommodating both hardcore fitness fanatics and those who haven't ever worked out. The challenging routines change frequently to keep minds from getting bored and fluttering out of skulls midworkout—for example, one day students might heave kettlebells and hop onto boxes, and the next they might climb ropes and blast through reps of push-ups.
When the clock strikes noon, most people start thinking about what’s for lunch. The instructors at Okunami Workplace Yoga, on the other hand, begin leading their students through a warm-up at the noon hour to prep them for an invigorating 50-minute yoga routine. They travel to highly populated office buildings throughout the Sacramento area on weekdays where they motivate businesspeople to launch into a midday workout to break up an otherwise sedentary day at the office. Instructor and owner Valerie Okunami’s passion for yoga shines through each class she leads, as she helps aspiring yogis of all ages and abilities lead more active and healthy lifestyles. In addition to traveling to their preset locations to lead public classes, she and her staff make special trips by request to office sites to lead private group lessons.
Though now spread over the United States with 27 locations, Crunch gym started in a basement-level aerobics studio in New York City. Despite the humble location, the gym's founders aspired to foster a workout environment that would keep members exercising through entertainment and not shouting from drill-sergeant-like trainers. Their idea was to host fitness classes with offbeat touches, including hip-hop aerobics featuring a live rapper and coed action wrestling.
Twenty years later, Crunch gyms' fitness classes still stray from the beaten path. Body Web with TRX sessions suspend members from a pillar, where they complete gravity-defying maneuvers with help from strong resistance ropes. In Bosu Bootcamp, every exercise is completed on an apparatus that is part balance ball, part core board, and fully endorsed by circus seals nationwide.
