The mammoth indoor facility at Elite Sports Training Center gives athletes plenty of room to train for games ranging from baseball and softball to golf and lacrosse. A 120’x70’ multipurpose area can be configured as one large infield—perfect for fielding ground balls or perfecting your split-dodge for lacrosse—or divided into eight individual tunnels that simulate the real-life conditions of a footrace against a mole-man. ATEC automated pitching machines hurl baseballs and softballs down the length of four batting cages, helping sluggers hone cuts at balls traveling between 30 and 90 miles per hour.
At MaxxResultsBootcamp, you’ll never feel alone in your journey toward a fitter lifestyle. A team of experienced and friendly instructors leads groups of like-minded fit-seekers who encourage one another to tear through the circuit-style boot-camp classes, dedicated to helping its participants burn fat and build lean muscle rapidly. Each high-intensity session targets all the muscle groups with a different regimen, for example, one day, patrons might heave kettlebells and push racks of weights, and the next, they might hurl medicine balls and ride stationary bikes. Though the drills are constantly varied, the sessions always incorporate a balance of cardio drills, weight training, and core strengthening movements designed to amp up your metabolism without resorting to blackmailing it. Further motivating guests to healthier lifestyles, the trainers provide customized nutrition plans and advice.
Jamie Philippi and Karina Philippi spent roughly 10 years designing a new approach to results-oriented fitness programs by drawing inspiration from scientific studies as well as their own extensive experience as personal trainers. At Premier Fitness Solutions, they share this approach with the public, giving self-motivated clients the tools they need to improve their metabolism, confidence, and overall well being. The trainers create a supportive environment while teaching visitors how to use the facility's free weights, cardio equipment, and cement jump ropes to design workouts that are intense, engaging, and, most importantly, effective. Although the trainers mainly focuses on facilitating weight loss, they also offer personalized training sessions, small group sessions, and boot camps that more specifically cater to individual fitness needs.
A good kettlebell swing engages the arms, core, and legs in a single action, not only strengthening them, but teaching them to work together. It's from this idea that Bob Garon takes his business's name: Synergy Kettlebell Training. At each of his four locations, he helps muscles synergize with new and different kettlebell regimens every day—instead of isolating specific body parts—usually themed around a specific workout principle that changes every two weeks. Each class lasts 30–45 minutes, the same amount of time it took the kettlebell's creator to come up with a name for his invention.
