What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We focus on personalized training in a group setting with an emphasis on weight training, cardio, abs and nutrition. We tell our clients “what to do” and “how to do it” so they can achieve their goals. The workouts are customized, so beginners and athletes are pushed to their limit and beyond.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
We keep clients motivated by setting achievable fitness goals. We offer a supportive environment where women are challenged with customized strength training, cardio and ab workouts. We also focus on nutrition because strength training, cardio and nutrition all work together for optimal success.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I was inspired to start my business because I have a GENUINE PASSION to help women live their best life through health and fitness. I believe everyone has a calling in life, and my calling is to help women of all ages and fitness levels achieve their health and fitness goals.
What do you love most about your job?
I love being a part of my clients' physical and mental transformation. When my clients see physical results, it gives them confidence to do things they never thought they would do, like run a 5K race (that's the mental piece). It's an amazing feeling to make a difference in my clients' lives.
After Randy Woody lost his aunt and grandmother to diabetes and obesity, he became increasingly distressed about his own 320-pound frame. He began researching weight loss and strength training and set to work creating a healthier lifestyle for himself—all at the age of 13. Over the years he was able to whittle away 145 pounds, and eventually became a personal trainer, competitive bodybuilder, and member of the American College of Sports Medicine. He teamed up with Brenda Woody, a fitness trainer and motivational speaker, to start Michigan Women Boot Camp, a weight-loss program that has transformed the lives and bodies of more than 10,000 clients.
Six days a week, the indoor boot-camp sessions challenge students with a rotating lineup of light running, resistance training, obstacle courses, and core exercises. Like scaffolding that reads only transcendentalist literature, the environment is supportive, yet serious. The Woodys only expect campers to perform to their individual ability level, but they ask students to show up as often as five times a week to get real results. The approach must be working; the Woodys boast that approximately 85% of their members are repeat visitors.
Fate brought together the owners of ONE Training Studio one random day during a fitness class. Years later, a budding friendship evolved even further as Jen and Michelle teamed up to open their own fitness studio in order to help others fulfill healthy and happy lifestyles. Now, from their bright orange and yellow-hued studio located in the Novi Commerce Center, the pair—who are certified in Zumba, PiYo, Turbo Kick, and RIPPED fitness classes—work alongside a team of experienced instructors and sweat mongers that help students tone their bodies.
The studio's flexible schedule offers 17 styles of group fitness classes and 9 30-minute express classes for all levels of exercisers. When not making a meaningful connection with their students in the fitness studio, Jen and Michelle can be found hosting health-conscious workshops, providing nutritional counseling, and offering lifestyle coaching services.
Rejuvenation Fitness's founder Terry Pratt started his gym more than 20 years ago after discovering that the standard membership model offered by most gyms didn't generate the results he wanted. The problem, as he saw it, was that most people simply weren't doing the right kind of training. After research and education, he determined that metabolic resistance training—combing plenty of cardio with pushing, pulling, climbing, tossing, and lifting—not only toned the body, but consumed fat more quickly than any one form of exercise on its own. He continues to evolve his perspective on fitness with modern trends, incorporating everything from perennially popular push-ups to kettlebells and TRX suspension harnesses into his ever-changing regimen.
What began in 1975 as one inner-city gym in Highland Park, Michigan, has since evolved into a global health-club organization with locations in 17 different countries. Celebrating their 40th anniversary in 2015, Powerhouse Gym equips weightlifters and cardio bunnies alike with all they’ll ever need to keep—or create—a tight and toned physique. The gym offers equipment outfitted with personal TVs as well as a cast of certified and knowledgeable personal trainers. Depending on location, members will also have access to group fitness classes, such as yoga, Zumba, and Les Mills BodyPump, as well as 24-7 turnkey access to the facility.
