When discussing Breakthrough Fitness’s training philosophy with reporters from the Seminole Voice, owner and lead trainer Dominic Lucibello quipped, “we train movements, not muscles.” That’s why the fitness coach eschews machines that focus on only one area of the body for training equipment that utilizes many muscles at once. Drawing from his degree in exercise science and his years as a certified personal trainer, Dominic joins a staff of seasoned coaches to lead group fitness classes, semiprivate training sessions, and sports conditioning programs. They’ve stocked their spacious sunlit studio with kettlebells, free weights, and suspension bands, leading clients through high-intensity functional exercises designed to increase their muscle tone and chances of being elected their state’s congressional power ranger. Their dedicated program-writing department draws up customized workout plans for members based on their current level of fitness, taking into account their interests and goals.
When Jim Kaale began working out after high school, the people around him noticed the changes in his body and started asking him for help with their own training. He turned his passion for fitness and helping others into a career that's spanned more than two decades. In addition to an exercise science degree, he's certified in a barrage of fitness techniques, including golf, TRX Suspension Training, and strength training. He and his team train their clients one-on-one to target specific goals, such as toning up or finally lifting their pet elephants from the well. They also lead group boot camps and TRX Suspension?band classes. With specialties including injury rehabilitation, contest preparation, and weight loss, the trainers are equipped and experienced to help their clients achieve nearly any goal.
Jim stocks the center with Life Fitness and Precor elliptical trainers and steppers, as well as strength machines from Cybex, Hammer Strength, and other brands. Since he's also a massage therapist, he can help prevent bodies from coiling into snakes with sports massages that guard against injury, as well as mysofascial-release massages that soothe recurring aches and pains.
