Rather than having clients run on treadmills, ForwardFit owner Bill Waltzek teaches them how to perform goblet squats and turkish get-ups. Both are kettlebell exercises, two of many in the gym's catalog of workouts for functional fitness. Bill and his staff embrace these machine-free moves as means to condition the entire body. They utilize equipment such as free weights, battling ropes, and resistance bands during their programs, which include group classes and private training sessions. Regardless of the routine, ForwardFit's approach encompasses a blend of strength and cardio work combined with nutrition counseling. Instructors also commit to tracking their clients' progress, adjusting their fitness regimens to suit goals as they arise.
