Charles Dao has gained success as a physical trainer by following the rule that the body and mind need to be trained to work in tandem. He and his team focus on conditioning students, teaching them to efficiently use their bodies and to analyze the science behind each movement during the fun, energetic, and challenging sessions. By syncing the brain with physical training, athletes can learn which muscles to engage for faster sprints and greater flexibility. The iCON Sports Alliance staff also offers a variety of services such as youth sports training, hot yoga, and physical therapy.

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
We have a fun social environment. I like to do a lot of team and group exercises which helps everyone motivate each other. I try to bring a healthy snack with recipe to share with the group after class. They all love that.
Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?
Enjoy being outdoors and making new friends.
What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?
We do a warm up with a run or jump rope, then dive into functional training. We rotate between exercises. No two classes are the same, so you never get bored and you keep your muscles guessing. We will work your entire body with a focus on core and stability training.
To excel as an athlete requires a special blend of skills: agility, speed, strength, and?perhaps most importantly?body awareness. Bellab of bellab fitness knows this perhaps better than anyone, since she's a former D1 college soccer player and national Major Beach Soccer champion. That's why her Kickstart program caters solely to athletes. But the fitness training regime works on athletes as individuals and part of teams, sharpening their accuracy and strength as well as their mental awareness. And for the average exerciser, Bellab offers boot camp and personal training.
