The exercise facilities at FitCon Fitness and Massage Therapy are designed for optimal strength and conditioning. The team has set up four lifting stations stacked with bars, bumper plates, dumbbells, kettlebells, medicine balls, and plyometric boxes. Team members train clients' cardiovascular systems through circuit training, jumping rope, running, sled work, and rowing. These exercises are all part of the team's signature FitCon plan, which is designed to produce optimal strength, power, and endurance. Instructors lead small-group classes each week, as well as personal training and private martial-arts training. In the therapy center, massage therapists nurse tired bodies back to health with a variety of sports, recovery, and neuromuscular massage.
Priscilla McCall had always had a knack for athletics, but it wasn’t until she left her career in the technology industry that she could pursue her dream of becoming a certified personal trainer. She then founded the Milford chapter of Fit Body Boot Camp, where she draws from her extensive training and softball-coaching experience to lead her students towards healthier lifestyles through the boot camp’s dynamic workouts and comprehensive meal plans. Trainers at Fit Body Boot Camp lead group workouts that integrate cardio with resistance training, strength training, and light alligator wrestling. They design the workouts to be time efficient and varied, avoiding workout plateaus that may leave clients uninspired. In addition to motivating clients to work their bodies, trainers also empower them with healthy eating guidelines.
Motivate, but don't intimidate. That may as well be engraved into the business card of Sam Baldwin, a certified personal trainer of more than eight years. Soft-spoken, Sam trades traditional scare tactics such as screaming and wearing a Freddy Krueger mask for intangibles: he's inspirational, attentive, and motivating. Oh, and he's basically an encyclopedia of exercise techniques. At Team Sam Inc., Sam engineers one-on-one training programs built around every client's individual goals. To keep workout routines interesting, Sam consistently switches up the exercise selection—a theme that carries over to weekly backyard boot camp sessions, which get hearts pumping with squats, pushups, and other calorie-burning exercises.

Tom Bacha’s fist and feet are like a force field made of whip-quick cobras. The martial artist holds a second-degree black belt in tae kwon do, an Expert Series instructor certification from Krav Maga Worldwide, and a Brazilian jujitsu teaching certification from Best Way Jiu-Jitsu. At Connecticut Krav Maga, he and five other certified instructors draw on their kick-punching prowess to pass on Imi Lichtenfeld’s legendary martial art, krav maga, used by the Israeli Defense Force and the US Marines. Designed around the instinctual ways people defend themselves, the method gets quick-learned into students’ muscle memory, teaching students to fend off surprise attacks or disarm opponents carrying knives, guns, or prosthetic limbs.
