When it comes to pain relief, MBJ Health and Fitness's Julie Ashlock is a one-woman band. For starters, she is a licensed massage therapist and an ACSM-certified personal trainer who leads personal-training sessions and cranial release technique treatments, which help unlock the body's natural healing mechanisms by concentrating on the head. Additionally, her level two certification from the Titleist Performance Institute means she can schedule 11-point TPI screenings. Designed for golfers or people whose flyswatter is a 7-iron, the screenings create customized exercise routines that strengthen the muscles worked by a golf swing.
Patrick Shaw's lifelong devotion to fitness paid off when he received a full athletic scholarship to Indiana University. Although his days as a college football player have since waned, Patrick's love and appreciation for fitness and nutrition has only grown. At Glory N-U Fitness, Patrick turns his attention to helping others reach their own fitness goals, combining his experience as a D1 athlete and his personal-trainer certification to lead boot camp classes and develop personalized exercise programs. Each workout is tailored to suit each individual's goals, be it losing weight or becoming strong enough to lift a sword out of a concrete sidewalk after it's dried.
At Shapes Total Fitness for Women, the instructors strive to make working out as easy and fun as possible. That's why—in addition to providing access to free weights and cardio machines—they host more than 67 group training sessions per week, with options ranging from yoga to indoor cycling. That way, clients can get in shape using whatever means work best for them. Some of the eclectic classes have zero impact on joints, too—specifically the ones in the on-site pool. These include 45-minute water cardio classes and versatile aqua aerobics sessions, which are ideal for athletes with arthritis and other special needs. The most completely flexible workouts at the gym, however, are the personal training sessions. The one-on-one workouts are designed purely around the client's goals, whether she wants to lose weight or grow strong enough to carry her favorite dumbbell home with her.
