Kosama offers a fitness plan that's based in science and backed by proven results. Confident in their program's advantages, the fitness experts guarantee transformational outcomes. The fitness approach incorporates muscle confusion, nutrition, consultation, and heart zone training. Workouts often incorporate "confusion" by using tools such as kettlebells, plyometrics, kickboxing, and Whoopi Goldberg's Oscar.
During initial fitness evaluations, exertion levels and heart rates are analyzed. Fitness trainers then arm everyone with heart monitors and display workout performances on screens during classes to ensure students are pushing themselves. These tools help build stamina and train bodies to burn calories even after sessions are done. Online meal planning and vitamin profiling tools are available to members to maximize results. Encouragement is also an important factor in all of Kosama's programs. In each class, instructors foster supportive environments where students challenge and motivate each other.

“Stocky.” Justin Yule remembers when others used this adjective to describe him, an observation he considered to be a nice way of saying that he was overweight. It wasn’t until his dad invited him to work out at the gym that Justin discovered a passion for fitness and a desire to chisel away the stockiness he carried. Since achieving his goals, he has kept up his fit physique more than 22 years.
Justin also channeled his passion into a bachelor’s of science in physical education with a concentration in adult fitness. He used his extensive training to devise the curriculum for Look Great at the Lake Boot Camp, which he also founded. Justin calls his program the “fitness revolution,” mainly because it breaks exercisers out of the tedious routines they often fall into at the gym or when their friend Sisyphus asks them to push his rock and promises he’ll only be gone for five minutes. Every one of Justin’s workout moves come in three levels, each scaled to challenge exercisers of different strengths and experience levels. He also relies heavily on body-weight resistance exercises, and coaches provide guidance and support to clients in reaching their goals.
Justin considers the most valuable part of his program to be the camaraderie that he encourages among his participants in and out of the boot-camp classroom. He organizes charity events and parties so that groups can mingle and become a cohesive unit working toward a single goal. To further ease his clients’ path to fitness, he also offers nutrition programs, online exercises and tips, and education in the form of newsletters and fitness books that he’s penned himself.
After having her first baby, Kelly Altman had not only gained 54 pounds, she no longer had the time to train for marathons, her preferred form of exercise. She needed a post-baby workout that burned fat more efficiently than running, and she found it in a boot-camp regimen.
To share her newfound passion, she started Altman Fitness, a boot camp-centered fitness studio. She co-owns the studio with her husband, Jay, who has spent more than 15 years in the fitness industry. The duo specializes in well-rounded workouts that incorporate cardio, resistance-band work, and agility drills as effective as trying to live undetected among hummingbirds. To complement their ever-changing boot-camp routines and personal-training sessions, the Altmans also create custom nutrition programs for their clients, based on metabolic typing.
The Life Time Turkey Day 5K jump-starts Thanksgiving celebrations with a healthy, full-body feast of exercise, with proceeds benefiting local food organizations. Starting on the world-famous Fremont Street, pavement stompers weave past the historic downtown vistas lining Las Vegas Boulevard, home to myriad celebrities, reality television shows, and retired slot machines. After coasting to a finish beneath the Fremont Street Experience, participants gather for a postrace party, where refreshments, music, and chances to win prizes from sponsors accompany huffs and puffs of accomplishment. Additionally, strollers are permitted during the race but must line up behind individual runners and must not be equipped with nitrous.
