Certified personal trainer Fabrice DeCola founded Body Physics in 2006, and it is his current professional outlet for his ongoing passion for fitness. His experience in the industry covers more than 22 years, going all the way back to a collegiate period when he was nationally recognized for his skill on the wrestling mat. His father, a professional soccer player in Italy, inspired him to succeed at other sports, and a career in business management gave him the market savvy to put his training certifications—earned from NFPT, NASM and AFAA—to use at his own facility. There, he adheres to the Egosque method, which focuses on dispelling imbalances in the muscular and skeletal system. His expertise in yoga, Pilates, and tai chi augments programs to improve posture, and an emphasis on mobility over strength ensures that his clients do not lift cows without first being able to outrun them. Fabrice's highly qualified staff of fellow trainers all contribute to the studio's roster of personalized services. Lessons center on each client's dictated goals and can lead to results such as weight loss or better sports performance. Most regimens incorporate a mix of resistance work, cardio drills, and nutrition advice for a more holistic approach to health than eating your doctor. Group classes can inject camaraderie into calorie-burning workouts, and specialized exercises prep prenatal, postpartum, and injured physiques for rehabilitation.

Owned by two brothers from Newton, CrossFit RedZone doesn't resemble a typical gym. Instead of treadmills and bench presses, monkey bars stand alongside hanging rings and medicine balls piled like an arsenal of kickballs. Such equipment might seem spare, but that's exactly what CrossFit is about. In each class, coaches challenge students' bodies in a rotating array of workouts, incorporating everything from kettle bells and crates to obstacles in the parking lot. As adults learn to redefine their physical limitations, kids' classes take into account children's unique physical and mental development to create workouts that prepare them for a lifetime of healthy habits such as bench-pressing broccoli stalks.

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.
