Master-certified trainer Joe Ramirez’s ample experience and endless support for his fitness clientele caught the eye of the Gazette, which named him 2014’s Best Trainer as part of the paper’s annual Best of the Springs awards. By actuating fitness knowledge honed during 20 years in the business, Joe guides ladies through 60-minute, indoor boot-camp or kickboxing workouts that populate a robust weekly schedule. Kettlebells, resistance bands, and medicine balls sway and fly through the air during toning and firming exercises that chisel more muscles than Michelangelo after an inspirational viewing of Rambo.
During kickboxing, the curriculum takes a fight-centric turn. There ladies strike bags, dummies, and focus mitts, sharpening participants' self-defense skills. WBCF makes weight loss a priority in all of its classes, and Joe also heaps individual attention on each client during a consultation to set attainable goals.
