Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
By keeping things fun ... and straight to the point. Nothing is more motivating than results. I myself get bored quickly, so my training is designed to keep interest levels high, which keeps people working hard. But the key word here is 'routine'. That is why people give up, because routine is boring. Dr. Zatsiorsky states that the response of a biological object to a constant given stimulus decreases over time. Why don't people own 10 of the same shirt? Because it would get boring wearing the same thing daily, working out is no different.
Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?
Well, there are two sides to my gym: the working out and the martial arts. Aside from that, during open gym hours clients can pretty much use the place for anything training related.
What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?
Warm up, high intensity interval training, special exercises to target lagging muscle groups, cool down.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I use interval training to raise overall General Physical Preparedness (GPP), strengthen lagging muscle groups, and burn fat. No cardio machines, no Crossfit, just a scientific approach to strength and fitness.

Balls hurtle down 40 polished pathways at Fiesta Lanes as bowlers lace up rented shoes and set their sights on demolishing 10-pin clusters. Flashing lights illuminate players’ faces as they plot out angles on the lanes, and pop music blares through the loudspeakers to heighten the drama of each frame. Seasoned staffers fit patrons for custom balls and tri-tone kicks in the pro shop, and partygoers shot put balls toward pin-shaped piñatas in one of three large meeting rooms. Chirps and beeps fill the air in a video arcade that boasts 65 games, and bowling rivalries reignite on foosball, billiard, and shuffleboard tables. Players can warm up their fingers before games by lifting burgers or hot pizza slices at Frankie’s Sports Grill, located next door.
