Fuel Training Studio turns routine workouts into challenging tests of mettle, keeping muscles and minds engaged and healthy with one-on-one training or community-focused group classes. Cofounders Jeanne Carter and Julie Bokat, and their staff of eminently skilled trainers, educate clients in their unique Fuel training method, which has been formulated through years of training and extensive certifications.
Fuel's philosophy focuses on helping clients through their everyday family life and activities by building functional strength?keeping muscles guessing with intense bursts of cardio and strength training that boost metabolism and efficiency. Clients enhance their muscle tone and agility with indoor barbell and heavy-bag boxing techniques, or Versus cable-suspension training. Outdoor boot-camp classes combine strength, core-building, and cardio workouts into fun packages, allowing students to build rippling abdominal muscles while they admire waterfront scenery and challenge songbirds to wrestling matches.
Drawing on martial-arts techniques purportedly passed down from ancient Japanese ninjas, Shinobi Martial Arts imbues its pupils with self-defense skills and spiritual tools aimed toward self-improvement. The only accredited To-Shin Do school in New Hampshire, the studio follows the teachings of legendary black belt Stephen K. Hayes, who spent time in Japan studying under ninjutsu master Masaaki Hatsumi in the 1970s. This experience inspired him to create his own school that merged the ancient with the modern, much like proving string theory with an abacus. Shinobi’s teachers tailor their instruction to each practitioner, teaching versatile physical-combat techniques and effective violence-avoidance strategies.
Angel Baez put more than 14 years of personal-training experience into Intense Physique Personal Training. He uses his specialized training in sports conditioning, kettlebell workouts, and nutrition to help clients achieve their fitness goals during one-on-one and group boot-camp sessions. He begins each personal-training program with a detailed assessment of BMI and muscle strength, and he takes his boot-camp groups indoors and outdoors for intense TRX, heavy-rope, kickboxing, strength-training, and circuit exercises.
Led by co-owners Mark Harbinson and Emily Seymour, the staff at ATA Martial Arts' Derry and Bedford locations teaches kids and adults the art of taekwondo. Their programs don't just concentrate on taekwondo, though; they also include cardio kickboxing and Protech weapons training. For a different vibe, the Bedford location also schedules upbeat Zumba dance fitness classes that teach students how to dance an attacker into submission.
