When it comes to promoting fitter lifestyles, fitness and nutrition expert Julia Zammito doesn't just talk the talk. At Total Body Results, she calls upon 16 years of personal training and dietary counseling experience each time she helps a client meet their goals. Unlike many trainers, Julia provides exact formulas for increasing lean muscle and burning unwanted fat. Often, these take the form of intense calorie-burning workouts and group boot camps. Although no two workout sessions are the same, most focus on strengthening core muscles while shaping up the legs, glutes, thighs, and arms. The workouts are also scalable, and suitable for any fitness level.
Julia combines these exercises with one-on-one nutritional guidance, helping clients beat bad habits and introduce healthier foods to their pantries. By changing the very way her clients approach food and exercise, Julia helps them remake their lives and lays the foundation for long-term weight loss and wellness.
Dozens of upright punching bags stand like padded pillars throughout MA Fitness’s space. Over the years, they have learned to fear the fists and feet of the gym’s aspiring martial artists. Thanks to the motivation and encouragement offered by the staff of professional and volunteer coaches, even first-time kickboxers pound the stuffing from their stationary opponents with an endless rain of blows. The strikes get fiercer as students perfect their technique with unlimited kickboxing classes or build their strength during body-resistance conditioning courses.
In addition to helping patrons whip themselves into shape and hone self-defense skills in a cross-training atmosphere, the staff reaches out to the community through myriad charity efforts. MA Fitness has sponsored fundraisers for organizations including All Children's Hospital, Toys for Tots, and the American Cancer Society. Each week, it hosts Sunday Smack Downs, a kickboxing class from which part of the proceeds go to charity, untouched by overweight cats wearing top hats and smoking cigars.

Aside from its classes being only available for women, there aren't many restrictions at Superlady Fitness Boot Camp. The personal trainers who lead the classes don't care if exercisers can do one push-up or 1,000, which is the amount Wonder Woman did during commercial breaks. That support combined with a daily gamut of cardio, stretches, physio ball work, and body-weight exercises results in fun workouts.
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.
