Graham Fitness trainer and founder Norman Graham took an interest in fitness at age 12, when he was deeply insecure about his skinny frame. Determined to change and strengthen his body, he sought advice from every expert he could access, beginning with his weight-lifting cousins and "everyone who [he] thought had muscular size." Now a muscular, prize-winning lifter, Norman consults with Olympic athletes and powerlifting champions. His own quick progress convinced him that working one-on-one with experts is the best way for people to reach their physical goals, whether they hope to lose weight, build muscle, or grow as tall as their favorite redwood trees. To make personal training accessible, he started Graham Fitness' in-person and online training options, both of which deliver custom fitness and nutrition savvy.

Along with personal-training services, Graham Fitness hosts high-energy group classes such as Zumba, yoga, and pole fitness. Whether clients come for one-on-one sessions or group workouts, the trainers emphasize a positive, supportive environment, celebrating its "biggest losers" on Facebook posts and online.

Winner of more than 100 mixed-martial-arts competitions, Tiger Schulmann shares his pride and love for fighting and self-defense with both adults and children in gyms across five states. From first-time grapplers to expert muay thai fighters, students of all fitness and experience levels are welcome to dive into a class at Schulmann’s. At more than 47 locations, adults can take classes in kickboxing, MMA, and jujitsu—the last of which instills students with the skill and confidence to take down opponents of any size, strength, or telekinetic ability. Kids, meanwhile, can learn martial arts for fun, or gain useful experience in bully prevention; the kids’ classes help victims immediately identify and safely diffuse situations when pitted against an aggressor.

The PGA instructors at SwingPlane Productions have a noble mission: make the game of golf more enjoyable for everyone. The team uses video swing analysis technology to help achieve this by providing instant, on-screen feedback of swing mechanics. A high speed Sony Action Cam camera breaks down players' swings frame-by-frame, revealing subtle flaws such as an awkward hitch in the backswing or the use of performance-enhancing hockey sticks. Lessons can be taken in person to combine the forces of video analysis and real-time professional advice or conducted over the internet, during which the instructor will analyze videotape of the student?s swing and prescribe specific drills to help improve results.
