For more than three decades, locally owned Spectrum Athletic Clubs have aimed to create a resort-like experience for patrons with upscale perks and personalized care. After workouts, gym-goers can avail themselves of unlimited towel service and change in comfortable locker rooms. Other amenities include saunas, steam rooms, healthy cafes, specialized workout areas, and complimentary Internet access.
In addition, racquetball courts let athletes improve their game independently, and patrons can sweat solo on cardiovascular equipment with individual viewing screens. Group classes, more than 1,200 of which are held daily, include Zumba, Pilates, Body Combat, and CXWorx sessions and enable trainees to draw motivation from each other or from each exercise studio's complimentary tank of moxie. The Spectrum Kids Club gives kids a place to play while adults work out and hosts such events as pool parties and pizza parties throughout the year.
Before he founded Bradshaw's Boot Camp, Justin Bradshaw was a deep-sea diver for the U.S. Army. The rigorous training, diving missions, and underwater construction jobs building fish schools inspired him to motivate others to push themselves to reach their fitness goals. At Bradshaw's Boot Camp, he designs ever-changing workout routines for his high-intensity boot-camp classes, incorporating nutrition to create well-rounded lifestyles for his clients. The plan works—he's been featured alongside one of his many successful weight-loss clients on ABC's The View and serves as the official trainer on MTV's I Used to be Fat.
While visiting a temple in Asia with his girlfriend, Jarrod Whitfield found himself sweating and out of breath while climbing a small hill. As he watched an 80-year old man cruise past him with ease, Jarrod realized something had to change. Ditching junk food and TV for fitness books and muay thai workouts, Jarrod sheared 60 pounds off his frame. Four years later, he placed in the Texas State Natural Bodybuilding Championships.
He now works to spark that same drive for self-transformation in his students through personal-training sessions and boot camps. His company’s boot camps emphasize proper form and cater to each student’s fitness level. All programs at the facility include guidance and nutritional counseling. Jarrod integrates the latest fitness trends into the work Whitfit Personal Training and Bootcamps does, providing patrons with everything from paleo-diet recipes to the playlists used to make steamrollers strong.
Travis Watkins bridges the gap between two seemingly disparate professions: personal trainer and poet. His experience as a physical education teacher, youth sports coach, and strength-and-conditioning mentor have given him an expert understanding of the body. It was, however, his time as a spoken word artist and Teach for America member that refined his skills in supportive communication, which he incorporates into his training persona.
Today, he guides clients of all ages through customized workouts and boot camps. He might meet them in their own homes for an equipment-free exercise circuit, during which he'll demonstrate moves that utilize bodyweight as resistance. Or, he might teach them proper weight-lifting techniques for boosting muscle mass. When it comes to kids, he leads group classes full of games and obstacle courses as part of Fit Kids Academy, as well as sessions geared toward student athletes.
