- $29 for a six-week non-impact GreatShape Bootcamp ($399 value)
The personal trainers that lead six-week GreatShape Non-Impact Bootcamp have something in common with most of their clients: they were all once overweight. Using a combination of exercise and diet, the trainers help clients battle the same demons that once plagued them. Low-impact and non-impact exercises help quickly shed pounds during two weekly 60-minute sessions, which, unlike drop-in sessions, help build the discipline needed to revamp looks and lifestyles.
The easy-to-perform workouts employ accessible accessories including bands, medicine balls, and light dumbbells, and eschew traditional running or jumping maneuvers that put unhealthy stress on the back and joints. Exercises change every session so muscles never fall into a routine and stop gaining strength. To boost motivation and results, plans include weekly weigh-ins and diet plans designed to burn fat with items that can be found in any grocery store.
Body By Todd
Although he's now a fitness expert and personal trainer to the stars, Todd "The Bodyman" wasn't always in perfect health. Todd struggled with both childhood lung disease and a ballooning waistline before losing more than 40 pounds and reclaiming a healthy lifestyle. Not only did he overcome those obstacles, he went on to become a black-belted martial artist, serve in the US Army, and eventually marshal his expertise as an active-lifestyle consultant for NBC 4 television. Today, Body by Todd's online resumé sparkles with celebrities such as actor Danny Glover, NFL pro and sports anchor Cris Carter, and recording artist Marti Dodson.
It's not just Todd who has emerged victorious from personal health battles. His team of trainers—which includes new moms and former cheerleaders, gymnasts, and soccer players—has each eked out hard-scrabble victories against excess weight, losing 25–75 pounds each. Todd and his crew have helped more than 10,000 clients reach their fitness goals with custom programs, using straightforward nutritional guidelines and exercises that, like dinner parties spent rubbing elbows with famous Muppets, are easy on the joints.
