Even before he founded PowerFit Bootcamp, JR Spear always felt a calling to transform people into fitness machines. A fourth-degree black belt and studied martial artist, Spear spent years training future Marine Corps officers and Iraqi soldiers in self-defense and combat skills. Later, Spear taught his own MMA fitness and cardio-kickboxing classes, along with personal and group training sessions.
At PowerFit Bootcamp, he and his staff of fitness instructors encourage each student to persevere by leading motivational and high-energy classes. At 12 indoor and outdoor locations, students undergo full-body workouts designed to jettison fat and tone muscle. Trainers welcome students of all stripes, giving them a period of time to complete each move, rather than a number of repetitions, encouraging each student to do as much as he or she can without feeling uncomfortable, overexerting, or resorting to time travel. Along the way, coaches track progress and motivate students by noting benchmarks during physical fitness tests on the first Monday and Tuesday of each month.
The expert trainers at Bodyshop Athletics X approach their fitness sessions as a dynamic, ever-changing science, and to that end, they constantly change up their routines and create full-body functional workouts. They lead intense boot camps, youth training for athletes aged 6 and older, and soccer-training camps.

What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We are not a one shoe fits all studio.
We are all about fitness that fits you. We will look at your goals and budget and create a plan specifically for you. We have something for everyone including fitness and nutrition.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
We have different workouts each day (you'll never do the same one twice), so it's never boring and lots of fun. Often times the trainers will even workout with you to motivate and encourage you.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Both owners have a passion for helping others transform their lives through fitness and nutrition.
They have been there and know what it's like to struggle and can easily relate to those in the same boat. It's all about inspiring others and walking with them step by step as they become healthy.
What do you love most about your job?
It's not a job to us because we love it. We love to see people overcome obstacles and succeed, especially when they don't think they will. We believe in our clients and love seeing the smiles on their faces when they reach a new goal.
Fit 4 Life's bootcamp instructor Ronnie Stewart truly understands how maintaining one's fitness can improve their life. As an Army Ranger, he spent hours training his mind and his body to conquer a variety of challenges while serving his country. Though no longer in active duty, Ronnie still employs the techniques taught to him in the service by leading fitness and bootcamp sessions that push physical limits. Ronnie and his instructors break the 45-minute sessions into two different cycles, the first focusing on warm ups and upper body exercises, and the second directed and lower body and core movements. In addition to their bootcamp regimen, Fit 4 Life also offers nutritional counseling to help clients work toward their goals in the healthiest way possible. His approach to teaching, leading, and motivating others through fitness helps participants achieve their desired fitness goals.
Ronnie's ability to help others has also gained the attention of local newspapers, radio, and TV stations alike, including ABC Columbia and ROCK 93.5.
Outside of Ronnie's bootcamp sessions, Fit 4 Life's staff also helps others nurture their bodies in personal training classes that bring all the focus solely on the client and the invisible friend they brought with them.
