Certified personal trainer, Carrie Kukuda, pulls from her own weight-loss and exercise trials when coaching her students through kettlebell, boot-camp, or personal-training sessions. Her 45- to 60-minute boot-camp classes motivate exercisers through kettlebell training, TRX resistance work, running, and yoga moves to tone muscles and jump-start heart rates. In addition to exercise, nutrition guidance leads patrons in slimming down with heart-healthy and energizing meals that eschew bacon-wrapped donuts stuffed in bacon-wrapped donuts. Throughout all programs, Carrie inspires participants to soldier on with endless positive motivation and fitness tips for all types of students.
The certified personal trainers at Starka Fitness guide exercisers through fun full-body workouts that cultivate strength, balance, and muscle tone. TRX suspension training employs sturdy straps to turn the human body into its own weight machine. Instructors draw from more than 300 bodyweight exercises to help build strong, flexible muscles in the arms, abs, and back. One-hour boot-camp sessions burn calories by pairing indoor and outdoor strength-training drills with cardio exercises, enabling campers to swim through quicksand with confidence. All campers meet with a trainer before the first class, where they set goals to accomplish through jumping rope, tossing medicine balls, and lifting kettlebells. During Pilates sessions, up to 20 students fortify torso muscles and sculpt lean, flexible limbs with stretches and precisely controlled movements. Contact the studio for its latest schedule of classes and Mr. Universe birthdays.
