Q&A with Rachell, Fitness Instructor

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

We get to know each student personally; they are not just dollar signs. Each client becomes part of the IMC community, where they are surrounded by an outstanding support group of staff members and other students. Also, our instructors live healthy lifestyles; they practice what they preach.

What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?

Rewarding, challenging, and fun?but most of all, inspirational.

Known in English as "way of the true sword," Shinkendo represents the distillation of founder (or Kaiso) Toshishiro Obata's vast knowledge of Japanese swordsmanship. Trained by Kaiso himself, Sensei Eric Lambert of Tojokan Dojo now shares this intricate training with students throughout Santa Clara County. In addition to Shinkendo, Sensei Lambert and his staff also teach Toyama Ryu, a martial art developed by the Imperial Japanese Army in 1925, and Aikibujitsu, a empty-handed discipline built on throws, joint locks, and control holds to overpower opponents.

Challenge Nation pioneered the urban-adventure race with a race season that includes visits to more than 35 cities across the country. Each scavenger hunt is personalized to the hosting city, exploring its many diverse neighborhoods with a series of clues that would test even the most skilled children's-book detective. The teams?composed of at least two people?vie for a $300 first-place prize. The Amazing Race?style competition rewards quick wits and wise planning over physical fitness, so the best way to prepare is by doing logic puzzles while eating Funyuns and lounging in a La-Z-Boy. The top 25 teams qualify, the top five receiving free entry, to compete in the national championship, which rewards winning teams with a $5,000 cash prize.

Urban Dare Adventure Race is a fast-paced competition that challenges two-person teams. Combining the bustle of a track meet with the brain-taxing sleuth work of a luge competition, the race uses a dozen trivia-based clues to lead contestants to checkpoints all over Providence. Location hunters reach their checkpoints by whatever means necessary, be it hopping a bus downtown, flying madly through a network of secret ziplines, or scuba-diving in a fountain for bus fare. At the mini destinations, racers must use a camera to document their presence, or, in some cases, get their passports stamped after completing a challenge.
