Kick Butt Kamp's Cindy Kilmer built her business around getting students to expect more from themselves and achieve long-term success. The Fit 360 Kids Fun Boot Kamp gets mini-bods in gear with one class per week, including 45 minutes of outdoor activities a week that encourage leadership, confidence and strength and a 30-minute nutritional seminar. Kids put down the remote to frolic in a landscaped yard near trees and a pond, fostering outdoor fun. Personal training partakers lessen the gap between their current states and fitness ambitions with five one-hour sessions that include a full initial assessment and review of goals, so that workouts can be tailored to personal workout preferences from equipment to atmosphere. Receive real-time feedback on form and progress along with homework exercise sessions to maximize results. Body-weight exercises challenge the body within its natural range of motion in order to get fit and stay that way.
CrossFit Elgin makes every day a workout with revolving-and-targeted exercises to get bodies ready for any challenge. CrossFit classes for kids and adults take ordinary activities and transform them into strength-training and endurance-building opportunities without getting bogged down in routine. The in-class and Workout of the Day exercises range from squats to rowing and rock-wall climbing.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
Round One helps students amp self-confidence and obtain valuable self-defense skills with a six-day schedule of classes led by a training staff of decorated fighters, including the 2011 IKF Welterweight Kickboxing champion and kickboxing national team coach Brad Fowler. In kickboxing sessions, students learn the basics of a fighting style that works the whole body, including hidden muscles masquerading as spare Silly Putty. Boxing classes lay fighting framework by teaching the sport’s fundamentals before instructors oversee moves and ensure proper technique. Both class styles ameliorate students’ health by boosting lean muscle mass, aiding in stress relief, and stoking metabolism without the hazard of swallowing a firework. Fighters of all fitness levels attend both beginner kickboxing and boxing sessions, and the gym suggests that each fighter supply his or her own boxing gloves and hand wraps, although they stock a small supply of community gloves.
