Christina Lagrega's merry-go-round of advertising and public relations jobs wasn't cutting it; she wanted a job that would make her smile. When she discovered Zumba via a late-night infomercial, she found a class the very next day. She was instantly enamored with the fitness styles' high-energy atmosphere; it blended something she'd loved and lost from her childhood—dance—with community and exercise. She quickly achieved her teacher's certification, and decided to take her devotion to the Latin-inspired fitness regimen one step further in May of 2012 by opening reMIX fitness & wellness. Here, she helps whip people into shape with her infectious passion for dance, exercise, and leading a healthy lifestyle.
Now, joined by six other instructors, she expands her class offerings beyond Zumba into the realm of other signature programs, including Piloxing, yoga, and barre. Instructors also lead sessions of Bokwa, which draws from South African war dancing and capoeira to form a fusion of fitness and dance, much like bench-pressing a square dancer.

At 69 years old, Linda shepherds others through their own body-sculpting transformations, dispensing her know-how on nutrition and personal training in Wolves Den Boot Camp’s brightly colored studio. In addition to Linda, Wolves Den enlists other trainers, including Terrance, who started kickboxing at the age of 17 and is now a five-time US Kickboxing Association Champ in three weight classes.

Many athletes opt to spend these hours at NXT GEN Fitness and Performance Training, where professional-grade equipment in a 14,000 square foot state of the art facility helps them get the most out of their workouts. Here, exercisers can burn through reps in the weight room, test out the 6,000 square feet of turf, try suspension workouts on the TRX system, or even hit the courts or turf training areas to test out on-field tactics and strategies.
