At the crack of dawn, Ryan Vaught barks orders across a misty high-school track field. During his four years in the United States Marine Corps, Vaught led daily physical training for his fellow soldiers—experience he now lends to his fellow civilians at Tri State Adventure Boot Camp. A certified personal trainer and member of a local jujitsu academy, Vaught blends different fitness styles into challenging combinations, which helps his charges become well-rounded enough to use each other as medicine balls.
Boot-camp sessions cycle through fitness instruction, motivational training, and nutrition counseling, and participants take on everything from weight training and jump ropes to obstacle-course runs—workouts designed to tone the core, abdomen, butt, and legs. Though sessions gradually increase in intensity, each is designed to accommodate all fitness levels.
Fran DiBattista initially opened BeneFit Studio, Salon, & Spa as a wellness studio with expert fitness instruction. The next step seemed only logical: after clients have worked on their physique, offer Aveda salon and spa treatments to beautify the rest of their bodies. The studio caters to athletes with boot camps, personal training, assisted stretching, and nutrition counseling, all designed to help clients burn calories and sculpt their bods. In the salon and spa, stylists and beauticians also pamper customers with services that range from hair cuts and styles and Aveda coloring to facials, body waxing, nail treatments, and massage.
Fit Body Boot Camp instructors guide clients toward their fitness and weight-loss goals at locations throughout the world. They lead group workouts that integrate cardio exercise with resistance training and weight training, keeping sessions varied in order to avoid disheartening plateaus. Nutritional guidance supplements tailored fitness programs to ensure that clients are properly fueled to lose, gain, or maintain their weight.

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
We believe that fitness should be fun and inspiring. We believe that every woman should be healthy and fit, full of energy and enthusiasm for life, and look and feel fantastic! We believe that in order to get fit and healthy, all you have to do is ask your body to do just a little bit more than what it?s accustomed to doing, regardless of your current shape, size, age or ability. Adventure Boot Camp provides workouts that foster fun, support, community, accountability, inspiration, and teaches women how to look, feel, and perform their best in life.
Do you believe in the maxim, "No pain, no gain?? Why or why not?
I do not. In fact, I think in the context of today?s ?box? gyms, pushing intensity beyond capability, is completely stupid and entirely unnecessary. Does that mean exercise is easy? Of course not. Exercise must be smart in that it meets the participant at her level, and it progresses at her pace, based on her unique characteristics. Because the opposite is true too. The same ole routine, day in and day out, leads to stagnation, boredom, and no results. There?s a fine balance between exercise that is too hard, and workouts that are too easy in that they are a waste of time. Adventure Boot Camp has perfected that balance, we call the sweet spot in fitness.
Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?
Clients come to our facility for workouts that are fun. They come to our facility for leading edge education on fitness, health, and nutrition. And they build lifetime relationships within our community.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
My approach to fitness has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, and I have been honored as one of the nation?s top 50 personal trainers by the American Association of Personal Trainers. I have been a local media consultant in the area of health and fitness for the past 8 years.
Dwayne Wilson doesn’t teach people how to exercise. Instead, he teaches students how to live healthier lives by routinely exercising and monitoring their diet. As a sergeant for the City of Cincinnati Police Department, he lends his passion and his talents to the police academy, helping recruits meet the state-mandated fitness standards, as well as their own personal fitness goals. This commitment to results-oriented training inspired Dwayne’s vision for 1 More Rep Cincinnati, which provides a supportive group setting for members of the general public who desire a healthier, happier, and more active lifestyle.
The challenging workouts combine high-intensity interval training with strength-building exercises. In addition to raising heart rates and jump-starting metabolisms, the sessions’ functional movements provide a full-body workout, which even manages to work the oft-neglected muscles that humans use to wag vestigial tails. For a truly holistic approach to well-being, 1 More Rep Cincinnati also provides online nutritional guidance with consistent dietary feedback.
