The year 1986 was a health- and fitness-focused one. Mike Tyson became the youngest heavyweight boxing champion in history, smoking was banned on all forms of public transportation, and Being-Fit opened its doors. The gym sought to supply its members with everything they needed to reach their personal fitness goals. Though its equipment has been overhauled, Being-Fit’s mission hasn't changed in the intervening two decades.
Today, the gym's trainers host more than 30 varieties of group fitness classes, including yoga, Pilates, kickboxing, and Zumba. When not in class, students can take advantage of the cardio theater, where favorite shows and video clips of kittens wiping out on treadmills play constantly as people jog in place. Additionally, the gym’s personal trainers construct individualized workouts during one-on-one sessions, equipping members with repeatable exercises crafted to address personal fitness goals.
As they learn Brazilian jiu-jitsu and mixed martial arts, students of Primal Training Center practice in an environment concerned with safety. Nearly every square inch of Primal Training Center's studio is covered in padding—from the floor to the walls, to the pillars supporting the ceiling. This cushioned environment reduces the risk of injury for beginners not used to flailing their limbs in unfamiliar territory. To assist with training, professional heavy bags rest at the side of the room just waiting to absorb punishment as practitioners pour their daily stress into every leathery smack.
Fit Body Boot Camp's instructors all over the world share a common goal: to help clients hit their fitness and weight-loss goals with regimented training programs. Trainers lead group workouts that combine cardio with resistance exercises, strength training, and light alligator wrestling. They design the workouts to be as time-effective as possible and vary the routines constantly to avoid workout plateaus that can leave clients feeling uninspired. Trainers empower their students with healthy eating guidelines to keep motivation high outside of class.
During one-on-one sessions, certified personal trainers plan out tailored fitness programs, which clients can take with them to Fit Body Boot Camp?s gyms to continue shaping up on their own.
Men and women of all fitness levels convene at Fit Body Bootcamp for some serious workouts. Trainers combine cardio, strength training, and stomach-flattening exercises during each boot-camp session. To better attain total wellness, clients also receive nutritional counseling with a meal plan and advice such as which color M&M has the fewest calories.
As a boot-camp instructor in the Navy, Chris Preston was responsible for getting cadets in shape, quickly. He applies that experience to his clients at Real Deal Fitness SD, where he and his staff schedule everything from personal training to group classes such as, you guessed it, boot camp. Exercisers can have free reign over the facility's free weights, strength-training equipment, and cardio machines.
Determined to inspire permanent lifestyle changes, the certified personal trainers at Evolve Nutrition & Fitness work with their clients virtually anywhere. They graciously host sweat sessions inside their 2,000-square-foot studio, and they willingly travel to homes, parks, and local tracks to ensure clients elevate heart rates to that of a midsize hummingbird. Wherever they are, Evolve’s instructors set a fun but focused tone as they lead students through a mix of high-intensity cardio and weight training. They incorporate plyometrics, free weights, and kettlebells while at the studio, though in-home exercisers need not fear, as instructors bring along the appropriate equipment to clients' homes. Depending on their goals, clients can opt for one-on-one sessions or group training, which takes form in boot-camp, family-fitness, and corporate-wellness varietals.
