Before he founded Bradshaw's Boot Camp, Justin Bradshaw was a deep-sea diver for the U.S. Army. The rigorous training, diving missions, and underwater construction jobs building fish schools inspired him to motivate others to push themselves to reach their fitness goals. At Bradshaw's Boot Camp, he designs ever-changing workout routines for his high-intensity boot-camp classes, incorporating nutrition to create well-rounded lifestyles for his clients. The plan works—he's been featured alongside one of his many successful weight-loss clients on ABC's The View and serves as the official trainer on MTV's I Used to be Fat.
At Sound Fitness, one can almost hear the calories sizzle. Ample rows of bikes, ellipticals, and other cardio equipment let guests build strong, healthy hearts without feeling pressured to give up their machines to other guests or movie cops needing to commandeer treadmills. To propel exercisers toward their goals, certified personal trainers plot custom workout plans and demonstrate how to build specific muscle groups with the free weights and strength-training machines. Babysitters corral pintsize visitors while their parents jog and pedal, and shower-lined locker rooms keep watch over clothes and gym bags to make sure they don't wander home.
Founded in 2012 by certified personal trainers David Wesley and Lana Carter, Spark Fitness Bootcamp provides all the motivation required to achieve fitness goals through its schedule of boot camps. In each daily class, David and Lana lead groups through a warm-up and short run before tackling the workout of the day, which targets a different muscle group in each class to build strength across entire bodies.
In Body Evolution's recently renovated gym, rows of traditional cardio machines whir alongside an updated aerobics room and an indoor basketball court. To inaugurate their new square footage, the trainers kicked off a variety of classes, which include Zumba, boot camps, various forms of yoga, and cardio salsa. When not leading personal-training sessions or doling out nutrition advice, the staff keeps the doors unlocked 24 hours a day for all-night access to the circuit- and strength-training equipment. Ramping up results, the staff plugs patrons into a machine-assisted metabolism test that helps make nutritional recommendations such as, "Stop trying to eat this machine." To get families fit together, the gym's Kidz Zone incorporates play and health into programs such as the Wii Fit workout.
At Snap Fitness, members can stomp the exercise bug at any time—24 hours a day, seven days a week. Inside the all-hours gym, cardio equipment, free weights, and Cybex plate-loaded machinery inspire more sweat than a lie-detector machine installed at the rim of an active volcano. During staffed hours, members can tap into the professional expertise of personal trainers or find inspiration in numbers during small-group boot-camp classes. Snap Fitness’s online contacts can help its members to uncover nutrition plans and training ideas as well.
Cosmic Fitness is an official torchbearer of the CrossFit training program, and the studio's skilled trainers build customized workout regimens for muscle proprietors of all types. In the CrossFit 101 training program, Cosmic Fitness's owners and certified CrossFit coaches Krista Debrick and Michael Fudge will introduce the fortifying CrossFit routine, working to put together a balanced regimen to best suit each group's fitness level and median Tetris score. In the courses, a high-intensity and constantly shape-shifting suite moves bodies with running, gymnastics, lifting, or rowing to help build cardiovascular endurance, strength, and speed. A limited class size of 10 people leads to individual coaching and attention, and the typical exercises work to mimic everyday movements and require minimal equipment, allowing customers to continue exercising in the comfort of their own home or local bank lobby. Classes will take place three times per week for the month, with classes scheduled at 6 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays (class times can be added to accommodate demand); after the CrossFit 101 training is completed, students are then free to move on to the regular CrossFit workout program.
