It would seem that Josh Guise's personal mantra is "train hard or go home," a motivational phrase he painted right on the wall of the AllStar Fit Training studio. Josh and his award-winning team of trainers specialize in small group classes, hosting up to four people for cross-training sessions that might include anything from kickboxing to body-weight resistance exercises. The sessions are designed to produce noticeable results in 30 days or less, and can be supplemented with personal fitness assessments, nutritional plans, and free weights that don't need to be fed or walked. Josh's intense, results-oriented workouts can challenge even the most disciplined athletes: one regular who comes in 4–5 times a week reported that he still feels physically taxed after each session.

Trainer Mario Miller sees health as an all-encompassing part of life. As owner of One Three Fitness Training, he largely emphasizes physical exercise as the main avenue to wellness, leading personal-training sessions, boot camps, and other small-group fitness sessions.

Renee and Cintron know firsthand that it's not enough to simply bring your body to the gym. An effective workout should be driven by positive energy, not a sense of weary obligation. And, ever since losing weight with a Zumba fitness regimen, Cintron has tried to spread this outlook through festive dance.
The instructors lead invigorating classes at RC Fitnez Studio, transforming exercise into a celebratory event. Their Zumba sessions teach groups intuitive dance moves that match up to Latin and world music. On certain Saturdays, students even come together for Zumba dance parties, a better way to socialize and shed pounds than bench-pressing your blind date. Cintron also hosts Power X 15 classes, which tone muscles with strength-based routines. Specialty classes on the schedule can vary, but may include offerings such as Turbo Kick kickboxing and Identities of Hip Hop.
