A quintet of personal trainers uses a four-pillared approach to fitness that focuses on cardiovascular exercise, resistance training, nutrition, and professional support. With fast-paced exercises, often borrowed from the training regimens used by boxers, instructors first pump up heart rates and warm up muscles. Once the body is primed to burn calories, they introduce intense resistance training to build fat-burning lean muscle using everything from BOSU balls, free weights, suspension harnesses, and pushups. They supplement this one-on-one training with nutritional coaching, including tips on how to beat cravings, and information to help clients understand the science behind losing weight.
BodyQuest Personal Training
Before he studied fitness at Purdue, Chris Tedesco learned the subtle art of inspiring others during a trek through the dessert. As a Marine squad leader, he needed to keep up morale while getting his troops to march across 36 miles of arid wilderness with him. This same determination saw him straight through to three Ironman Platoon championships. Today, as owner and founder of BodyQuest Personal Training, he brings those heat-honed lessons with him to each session, just as he did when he helped a snowboarder recover from near total-lower-body paralysis.
He and his team of four dedicated trainers partner up with clients, getting to know them, their eating habits, and their fitness goals to help them lead healthier lives. They constantly vary exercises via a circuit designed to keep bodies burning fat long after the workout and even tailor training-session soundtracks to suit clients' whims, so long as those whims don't include whale songs as covered by an eccentric theremin player. The exposed brick walls of his gym feature wooden sculpture and wall hangings that capture the feeling of motion, perhaps subliminally inspiring patrons to push themselves.
