Nationally certified trainers lead goal-oriented boot camps filled with speed, strength, and balance exercises suitable for all fitness levels. Most classes last 30 minutes and incorporate bodyweight exercises, plyometric training, and functional fitness equipment such as kettlebells, rings, and sandbags. To maximize personal attention, the trainers cap each session at 15 participants. They also offer nutrition coaching to help participants lead overall healthier lifestyles.

Fitness Inspired Training Studios
Writer Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.” This sentiment inspires Evan McDaniel, the certified personal trainer who own Fitness Inspired Training Studios. To propel clients toward their goals both inside and outside the gym, he infuses small-group workouts with a hearty dose of motivation, encouragement, and excitement. McDaniel draws upon fitness-oriented bachelor's degrees and experience working for WebMD to devise an ever-changing lineup of workouts that challenge patrons with bodyweight exercises, cardio challenges, and a variety of functional training tools.
His signature boot camp, Total Training, zeroes in on participants' goals, from slimming down for weddings to gearing up for marathons or thumb-wrestling tournaments. During these 30-minute sessions, exercisers of all levels feed on the moral support of their classmates to heave sandbags, swing kettlebells, jump onto sturdy boxes, and stretch resistance bands. In addition to absorbing fitness and safety tips from the trainers, exercisers receive nutrition coaching, which teaches them how to make healthful food choices and to differentiate between a banana and a Twinkie.
