For Tiffany, owner of "Fit To The T" Fitness Company, working out is a joy. She's been an athlete her entire life, starting as a cheerleader and advancing through several fitness-certification programs. As a licensed Zumba instructor and expert-level certified personal trainer, she mints new fitness lovers on the regular. "I believe in a total, complete healthy lifestyle," she explains, "meaning fulfillment in all aspects of one's life—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual." To secure these holistic benefits, she personalizes fitness programs to fit the individual. All the while, she shows unconditional support, adopting a nurturing tactic that inspires clients to prevail against setbacks and make healthier choices, such as getting a good night's rest and being the first person to get the worms in the morning.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Only pay for the classes you take. There are no monthly contracts or sign-up fees. Feel comfortable working out at a smaller gym. Classes are small and free of judgements.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
CIZE LIVE is a dance class for EVERYONE! Created by Shaun T, CIZE LIVE is an opportunity for self-expression and heart pumping physical activity. During an hour long class you will learn a full dance routine broken down an 8 count at a time. You will forget you've come to work out.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I fell in love with CIZE instantly. The only gyms offering the class didn't have times that worked for me. Why pay for a gym membership when I couldn't attend the classes I wanted to? I wanted to open a gym that doesn't bind you with contracts or monthly fees, and offers excited ways to exercise.
What do you love most about your job?
I love being able to share the discovery of CIZE Live with anybody and everybody. It has changed my life and the way I work out. I want everybody to have the same experience.
Jenks Dance Academy is hip-hop and ballet, it's tumbling and it's jazz...but it's never quiet. That's the common denominator in this otherwise versatile dance school. Regardless of genre, all classes are active, engaging, and led by professional dance instructors keen on keeping things quick-footed and interactive. Jenks welcomes boys and girls as young as 12 months old for classes and camps that incorporate fitness, creativity, and self-discipline. So whether your daughter's enrolled in the princess camp—a ballerina-focused dance camp with props such as wands and tiaras—or your kid's strutting their stuff with swagger in the superstars/hip-hop class, they'll be honing their flexibility and coordination, building physical strength, and building the self-confidence necessary to drop jaws in the dance recital or produce aisle.
Jenks's studio is staffed with professional instructors. It's also equipped with modern enhancements in place to facilitate structure, dexterity, and safety. For instance, there are one-way observational windows, raised wood floors that prevent injuries or kids tiring out, and a separate kids' play room. The center also features a boutique with shoes and apparel.
Oklahoma Fit's experienced personal trainers lead students through rigorous classes focused on burning calories, melting fat, and building community. Operating out of multiple locations, 90-minute boot-camp sessions host up to 25 fit-seekers indoors or 40 during outdoor sessions. Maintaining a sense of variety during both classes and personal training sessions, trainers employ a variety of strength-building equipment, such as car tires, punching bags, water jugs, free weights, and medicine balls, to help students achieve the body-changing results they desire. Outdoor workouts take place adjacent to the gym when weather permits for a workout fueled by fresh air, the rising or setting sun's warmth, and grass's supportive follicles. The instructors treat their students like family, giving each member attention and motivating students with boundless energy and inspirational messages hanging on the gym’s walls.
Trainer and fitness guru Justin Bradshaw modeled SGT. H20's CombatSwim after the rigorous training he received as an Army diver. His challenging exercises encourage full-body fitness, using workouts that build stamina, boost metabolism, improve swimming skills, and promote weight loss. Incorporating the best of land-based cross-training systems, CombatSwim includes plenty of high-intensity interval training and pulse-hiking calisthenics. In the pool, water adds extra resistance that amplifies the effects of the exercises, which include swimming sprints, endurance swimming, and treading water with weights. Designed to sharpen the mind as well as the body, CombatSwim leaves exercisers with the same confidence and conditioning as some of the world's elite military warriors.
