In the eight years that Jay Broxton has worked in the fitness industry, he's trained people from all walks of life?from young kids to professional athletes and celebrities, including Kansas City starter Tank Tyler and newscaster Pam Oliver. Backed by a personal-training certification and a lifetime of athletic experience, Jay captains his own fitness program?Body That Works?where he joins fellow fitness instructors to lead clients though comprehensive boot-camp or personal-training workouts that combine cardio with strength-training and TRX-training techniques. Committed to battling youth obesity, Jay also conducts a variety of youth athletic training programs designed to prepare students for upcoming athletic seasons or full-contact chess tournaments.
The instructors at GIS Boot Camp are dedicated to helping you achieve your fitness goals, going so far as to create a Fat Loss Accountability Group. The group includes weekly check-ins, members only coaching and support, and weekly food log reviews. This willingness to go above and beyond to meet the needs of their clients, beginners, intermediate, and advanced fitness enthusiasts alike, is seen elsewhere, as well. High intensity programs, such as boot camp and Triple AAA, target specific body parts and focus on toning muscle. They offer classes Monday through Friday at three locations, including Plus Youth Speed, Agility and Quickness classes, teen strength and conditioning classes, and Fit Over 40 women's only classes.
The staff members at Freestyle Fitness know its always better to exercise with a friend. That's why the gym specializes in group classes that provide a fun, supportive environment to students of all fitness levels. The gym's certified instructors lead Zumba, yoga, and aquafit cardio classes seven days a week. They also lead a boot camp that includes more individualized attention along with meal plans, journals, and tiny witch hats to make hamburgers look more menacing, which help students lose weight quickly.
The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.

Ricky Moore, the owner of American Fitness Center and a former member of the Royal Air Force in England, believes that everyone has the potential to be in great shape, but doesn't necessarily know where to start. The former competitive body builder often sees people making the mistakes of "improper technique, lack of discipline, shying away from strength training, and only focusing on cardio equipment."
Thus, he and his staff of trainers are onsite from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the 24/7 facility to help clients of all fitness levels figure out exactly what they need to do to lose weight and sculpt muscles, to see them through any frustrating times. In addition to showing gym members how to get the most from the center's equipment and giving them nutrition tips, they run personal-training sessions, boot-camp classes, circuit-training sessions, and specialized workouts for abs, glutes, expectant mothers, or future brides.
