The enthusiastic instructors at Wired Fitness, which has been in business for 11 years and earned an award for San Diego?s Best Outdoor Fitness Workout from CW 6?s San Diego Living, lead patrons of all ages and fitness levels in high-intensity workout routines held amid the balmy breezes and open air of multiple outdoor settings. The instructors set up obstacles course fraught with rings, cones, and poles, building off Mother Nature's steep hills and varying terrain at locales such as the lush green Carmel Valley or the sunlight-painted Mission Bay. During the one-hour classes, students sweat through always-changing interval workouts that blend plyometrics, partner drills, and obstacle courses to sculpt the entire body. Instructors lend their personal attention to each student, modifying the exercises to increase or decrease the difficulty level as needed.
At SD Trainer, seasoned instructors replace drill-sergeant screams with encouraging mantras in their one-hour indoor sessions that welcome clients of all fitness levels. During sessions, trainers round out weightlifting sessions, resistance drills, and core workouts with cardio routines such as light running and obstacle courses. They switch up session routines regularly to ensure courses are never the same from day to day, leading wild-card days that incorporate hiking, crawling, and high-stakes Uno games played with 50-pound cards. In addition to bolstering workouts with nutrition guidance, trainers work to cultivate an atmosphere of positive camaraderie designed to push campers further toward their weight-loss goals.
Jaylin Allen may be a certified member of the National Academy of Sports Medicine and a personal trainer with 12 years of experience, but the last thing she wants is for her resumé to intimidate clients. She and her trainers strive to make their small-group Bootique Fitness camps fun and friendly, fostering a team spirit while tailoring exercises to the fitness level of each individual. To maximize results, they avoid boring, repetitive exercise, which has a tendency to strain joints and turn the mind into crusty oatmeal. Instead, they revise their regimen daily, blending functional movement training into calisthenics and body-weight resistance exercises.
