About this business
From Our Editors
A longtime personal trainer, Alonzo Garrett realized that, though everyone’s body functions much the same way, there’s no single set of exercises that works for everyone. Sometimes this has to do with anatomy or injury, but more often it stems from the disparity in excitement and enjoyment that different kinds of exercises elicit from different people. So, Alonzo decided to start his own fitness center—ZO Personal Training—where he cooks up individualized workouts based not only on achieving his client’s health goals, but keeping them excited and loving their workouts. His kinesthetic recipes use everything from traditional plyometrics and boxing to free-running training and chasing a cupcake that dangles in front of a treadmill.
Inside his gym, the light green walls fade into the background behind the forest of white metal frames and their foliage of black straps, seats, and weights. The expansive space houses dozens of machines and many times that number of free weights and other unbound exercise equipment, each with its own specific powers.
