Christopher Schvetz made All-American 10 times during his high-school swimming career. In college, he replaced his passion for swimming with mixed martial arts, which led to training and competition opportunities as far away as Thailand. At PFD Crossfit, Christopher draws on his diverse sports background to emphasize well-rounded athleticism in all his clients. He relies on intensive CrossFit workouts to train students in all athletic categories, from strength and speed to balance and cardiovascular endurance. To make sure each pupil receives individualized attention, Christopher and his colleague Nathan Condella keep their classes small, from one-on-one sessions to groups of up to 15 students. Those larger sessions focus primarily on strength work with barbells and dumbbells, as well as cardio exercises with kettlebells and gymnastic rings.

Open 24 hours day, seven days a week, Burn Fitness lights a fire under fitness routines with its wide selection of equipment, certified trainers, and group classes, including Zumba, yoga, and tai-chi.

After graduating from the University of Wisconsin with a degree in kinesiology exercise science, ACE-certified trainer and Fit Fun Bootcamps founder Dustin Maher designed MamaTone Fitness to help moms vanquish weight gain after childbirth. Inspired by his own mother—who cooked his siblings and him healthful meals but rarely had enough time to exercise—Maher strives to imbue his clients with the motivation to do both. Whether training new moms, moms-to-be, dads who had moms, or curiously fast sons whose moms found them in the middle of a Kansas corn field climbing out of a spaceship, his group classes and boot camps immerse participants in a full-body workout with moral support from neighboring exercisers.
Snap Fitness's easyFIT monitor is a small, clip-on accelerometer that helps keep track of daily exercise. Unlike pedometers that merely measure steps and spy on daydreams, the easyFIT monitor senses the intensity and duration of physical activity, transmogrifying those stats into simple, numerical points that help assess activity levels from sedentary to peak performance. In addition to tracking exercise in real time, easyFIT monitors can connect to the wearer's personal web portal to upload data and create fitness graphs that help show progress, snag exercise suggestions, and stave off the temptation of living next to a hamburger farm. Watch a video about the easyFit here.
Our training focus is on functional and unconventional training. Working our bodies the way that we use them! This means working large and small muscle groups alike, moving multiple joints through full ranges of motion, and constantly emphasizing stability and body control.
