Sean M. Broderick’s eclectic mix of experiences in the personal-training business echoes his whole-body approach to wellness. Rather than just relying on being an internationally accredited instructor, which he is, he expanded his knowledge by becoming a sports-performance coach, athlete, nutritional consultant, and fitness model. Today, he serves as the head trainer at United Health & Fitness, where he and his colleagues boost the well-being of men, women, and children of all ages and experience levels.
Within the bright-turquoise walls of the fitness center, certified trainers spot students as they strengthen and tone muscles during small-group exercise classes. In doing so, they demonstrate the basic steps of weightlifting in Bodybuilding 101 or help their pupils hasten heart rates with choreographed footwork in kickboxing classes. In addition to group sessions, trainers take pride in customizing workout regimes to suit each individual during one-on-one personal training, which follows the business’s motto that “there is no generic person in this world.”

On the gym floor, machines from Hammer Strength and Life Fitness whir along with limbs, and individual television screens on some machines threaten patrons with footage of their grade-school choir solos if they don't keep jogging. Group fitness classes at certain locations take advantage of indoor cycles and boot-camp drills to condition physiques, and MMA programs tutor muay thai, kickboxing, and jujitsu.
Dolphin Fitness Clubs' forest of humming and clanking exercise equipment is overseen by knowledgeable staff who are eager to dole out instruction on playing nicely with the machines and to pass along workout tips.
