Dynamic Performance's instructors all over the world share a common goal: to help clients hit their fitness and weight-loss goals with regimented training programs. Trainers lead group workouts that combine cardio with resistance exercises, strength training, and light alligator wrestling. They design the workouts to be as time-effective as possible and vary the routines constantly to avoid workout plateaus that can leave clients feeling uninspired. Trainers empower their students with healthy eating guidelines to keep motivation high outside of class.
During one-on-one sessions, certified personal trainers plan out tailored fitness programs, which clients can take with them to Dynamic Performance’s gyms to continue shaping up on their own.
During 25 years of industry experience, Nick and Sharon Osborne have witnessed countless gym members lose interest in monotonous workouts and detached trainers.

The gym's equipment—kettlebells, battling ropes, sledgehammers, and machines such as the Power Plate—complements routines that mimic real-life movements and strengthen muscles through natural actions. To round out their wellness goals, members receive access to nutrition and fitness software that helps them plan healthful meals without going to the trouble of hacking into the Food Network's mainframe.
The encouraging shouts of Nathan Jordan and his band of fellow certified trainers echo off the bright-green walls of the Jackhammer Strength Training studio, overpowering the clatter of weights and the huff of exercisers. Pulling from their own unique styles and approaches to exercise, each of the three seasoned instructors lead boot camp and personal-training sessions, guiding students of all fitness levels as they grapple with free weights, kettlebells, and suspension straps. The trainers encourage healthy lifestyle beyond the studio by teaching students tricks for improving their diets, such as which low-calorie snacks are most filling, and which greens can make you punch through walls.
During their 25 years in the sports performance industry, Nick and Sharon Osborne have watched countless athletes lose interest in monotonous workouts and detached trainers. The couple realized that a lack of external motivation caused this burnout, and they founded Go: Sports Performance Center on a foundation of personal training and motivational group fitness. A staff of hand-selected coaches cheerlead every student during the gym's group classes.

Trainers and members furnish their workouts with the gym's ample equipment, which includes kettlebells, battling ropes, sledgehammers, and power rack. To help achieve goals such as weight loss, improved athletic performance, and increased strength, each athlete gets access to nutrition and fitness software that helps them plan healthful meals without going to the trouble of hacking into the Food Network's mainframe.
At Shift, students enter a calming, comfortable environment designed to help subdue the pressures of the outside world and promote self-awareness. Teachers preach the importance of attention to one’s breath and body during WiseWays yoga classes, artful tai chi sessions, and restorative meditation sessions. The studio’s tranquil environment is made even more comforting by suspended wood flooring that’s warmed from beneath by radiant heat.
Michele Mangione thought she might never dance again after a car wreck smashed her skull and fractured four fragile vertebrae. By practicing yoga, she regained her mobility and acquired a new passion: helping others find health and happiness through movement. To this end, she eagerly studied the mind-body connection, earning a PhD in the topic from Ohio State and an advanced teaching certification from the Yoga Alliance. Armed with extensive knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and philosophy, she founded WiseWays, a studio that blends Hatha yoga with healing arts, such as tai chi, structural integration, and the Feldenkrais method of somatic education. Here, students of all skill levels build strong bodies, centered minds, and spirits as buoyant as the studio's suspended-wood floor. Yoga instruction takes place in one-on-one sessions and small-group classes, where pupils hone poses that gently unlock hips, shoulders, and safes filled with middle-school-era diary entries. As strength and flexibility increase, students progress to sun salutations that cultivate balance, focus, and a pervasive sense of calm.
