As a nurse, fitness trainer, and avid marathon runner, Pamela Kato understands that building a strong and healthy body isn’t about locking yourself in a gym. Everyday activities can inspire workouts like the ones she guides at Bodyworks of Northeast Florida. Feet pound sand or pavement in BeachFit and BuggyFit classes. In the former, participants perform cardio and calisthenics exercises in beach sand; exercisers in the latter sweat through boot-camp sessions while pushing their babies in strollers down the street. Individual sessions include lessons in aerial fitness on silk hammocks and ballet-barre work, and Bodyworks also offers consultations and nutrition plans that focus on long-term goals for health and wellness.
