VIP Training houses experienced trainers who help bodies move toward healthier futures with one-on-one training, group sessions, and customized nutritional advice. Instructors lead packs through heart-pumping classes, providing an extensive schedule of morning and evening workouts standardized by co-owner and physical therapist Dr. Mike Sartorius, whose weight-loss prowess was featured on MTV. Students build friendships and break a sweat for 30–45 minutes, taking on such varied and creative challenges as group rowing intervals and kickboxing. A nutrition evaluation guides participants toward lifestyle choices that will aid in their pound-shedding journey, such as cartwheeling through the drive-through line.
Personal-training sessions allow muscle whisperers to communicate to individual limbs, helping to improve endurance for a sport, slim physiques for a beach vacation, or build overall brawn turning arms into pulverizing sledgehammers that always beat rock, paper, and scissors.

As a doctor, Mike Sartorius knew that packing on pounds every winter and struggling to shed them the following spring was setting his body up for a major metabolic breakdown. Even after he finally decided to lose the weight and keep it off, it took him five up-and-down years to learn the habits that would lead to long-lasting results. Once he nailed down his five principles of staying fit, however, his body underwent a transformation. Before long, his career would follow suit.
The boot camp, which draws on Dr. Mike's experiences with weight loss, proved an initial success and has since been featured on shows such as MTV's I Used To Be Fat. Dr. Mike and Jerry continue to host boot camps at three locations, though nine other trainers have stepped up to pack each week's schedule with 55 available classes. In all of these classes, trainers strive to maintain a balance between fun and intensity. All workouts are done on a gymnastics foam floor to keep the joints safe.
