If you see people dangling from lampposts in San Diego parks, chances are that Kevin LaCourte is responsible. The certified personal trainer finds creative uses for the outdoor landscape and architecture during his group classes, commonly hooking TRX Suspension Trainers to railings and streetlights for resistance drills. He calls upon 16 years of experience in the fitness industry to help plan his unpredictable routines, which blend calisthenics, cardio intervals, functional exercises, and core work into holistic sweat sprees. This thorough approach has helped almost 2,000 clients shed weight and gain muscle, including the creative and editorial director of Living in Style magazine, Lisa DeMarco, who attended and chronicled a six-month FitCamp endeavor. Kevin's program sprung from his desire to lead athletic workouts for those with little to no sports background. The classes, now held at five locations, are intensely challenging, although he never yells or embarrasses his students. He instead chooses to motivate participants through honesty, supportive words, and complimentary nutrition tips. He also adjusts his techniques to accommodate clients of all skill levels. Beginners can gain coordination and strength with simplified exercises, while more advanced students can ask Kevin for heavier medicine balls and aerobic bands with higher cement content.
