A seasoned trainer leads an interval-based regimen of cardio and strength-training exercises, relying only on functional movements, free weights, and kettlebells. Although he requires all students to go through the same program, the instructor will scale the load and intensity of each 45- to 60-minute class to suit different fitness levels.<p>
Top Shape Fitness
Top Shape Fitness’s program director Richard has trained members of the U.S. and Saudi armed forces using his program based on the kinetic-chain principle, which declares that if one area of the body is weak, then the stronger parts will become overworked to compensate and the whole body will suffer. His total body approach and “train insane or remain the same” philosophy lays the groundwork for a high-intensity regimen of squats, deadlifts, and multijoint exercises during CrossFit classes, ladies-only Femme Fatale boot camps, and personal-training sessions. Within his minimalist exercise haven, he eschews the traditional fitness machines and nationally ranked wrestling alligators found in most gyms for an arsenal of free weights and kettlebells.
