Stephanie Jones began her athletic career as a bodybuilder in 2003, but it wasn’t until First Lady Michelle Obama asked communities to band together to help each other live healthier lifestyles that Stephanie decided to pitch in and start her own fitness business. With many of the training techniques that allowed her to compete as a professional bodybuilder, Stephanie designs outdoor boot camps that burn calories and tone muscles. Additionally, she gets bodies working at peak performance with meal planning and nutritional counseling. For clients who want one-on-one help, she constructs individualized regimens, or motivates people during the 90-Day Challenge that transforms them into buffer versions of themselves.
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.
The instructors at Get in Shape Athletics are dedicated to helping you achieve your fitness goals, going so far as to create a Fat Loss Accountability Group.

They offer classes Monday through Saturday, including Plus Youth training programs, Agility and Quickness classes, teen strength and conditioning classes, and Fit Over 40 women's only classes.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
