Certified fitness professional and founder of Motivations Fitness Jameel McGregor employs a multifaceted approach to fitness that includes one-on-one nutrition advice, resistance training, and cardio activity. In a 700-square-foot studio, exercisers embark on 30-minute sessions of treadmill trekking and elliptical skiing in order to elevate their ticker rates and improve their chances of outrunning a hungry Olympian. Trainers exclaim motivational tidbits as their wards toss around medicine balls, balance atop stability balls, and stretch resistance equipment to its max to convert their bodies into toned temples. Motivations’ trainers also share nutritional knowledge so that exercisers can improve their overall health. Trainees enjoy access to constant inspiration and coaching via emails, phone calls, and airplane banners. In pursuit of its mission to help North Carolinians maintain healthier lifestyles, Motivations Fitness has created the Move2Lose Foundation to institute local programs, deliver free workshops and seminars, and raise money to fight obesity and arrest vagrant cholesterol deposits.
Motivations Fitness’s owner, Jameel McGregor, has earned the nickname the Reverend of Fitness for his view of the body as a temple. He and his team of certified professionals deliver their fitness sermons at a 700-square-foot studio outfitted with colorful stability balls, punching bags, and equipment such as the Smith machine, which encourages proper squat form. The studio’s signature five-component program—a cocktail of cardio and resistance training, supplements, meal planning, and professional guidance—draws on the latest fitness research to efficiently condition physiques. The Boxing Fitness Bootcamp Academy hones fighting prowess with core training, shadowboxing, and sparring rounds with a couple life-size Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots. In an effort to bolster public health, the gym’s nonprofit Move2Lose Foundation raises awareness of fitness’s importance in the surrounding community.
