Inland Empire Boot Camp’s squad of experienced instructors eschews the ear-scarring screams of traditional boot camps in favor of rigorous motivation, individually tailoring every exercise to achieve sustainable results for students. Like the temperaments of salsa dancers, the boot camp’s intensity levels split into mild, medium, and hot categories to ensure every participant gets a vigorous but doable workout. The outdoor program mixes up activities for constantly shifting sessions, which divide time between exercises such as toning core muscles with planks and lunges and raising heart rates with jogging and calisthenics. Campers rotate through interval-based resistance and cardio training, aiming to stoke metabolic fires into searing calories. Inland Empire Boot Camp's schedule of both coed and women-only classes lets participants control their comfort levels, and the flexible schedule accommodates those who need extra time to get their werewolf or nongroggy daytime-werewolf symptoms under control. Inland Empire Boot Camp also offers grocery shopping classes, which escort students through the aisles, teaching them what to look for on food labels and how to decide between frozen or fresh, butter or margarine, and ketchup or catsup.
Since 2001, Stroller Strides' fitness professionals and buggy-bandying workouts have helped mothers to overcome the struggles of staying in shape while caring for a wee one. Specially trained instructors helm a series of 60-minute classes, which consist of a warm-up, a power walk, and interval stations where limbs stretch resistance tubes in body-toning drills. Energizing jaunts often utilize hills, benches, and other environmental facets to augment maneuvers. Throughout the routine, engaging songs and activities keep children from growing overly fussy or pranking classmates by tossing banana peels in front of their buggies.

inspiration to start or run this business?
When I was in college,
I participated in team sports and was very fit. After I completed my M.S. in holistic
nutrition and stopped competing, I noticed I started to gain weight. I couldn''t
find the motivation to work out alone so I created BAD ASH Training: a supportive
team environment to get fit.What do you love most about your

Q&A with Sergio Gonzalez, Owner and Fitness Instructor
Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
Each of our instructors are very encouraging and make it a point to keep clients motivated. We try to keep our programs fun and challenging at the same time. We always start them off with a fitness assessment and give each client a goal to reach. After that we assess each month to see how they are progressing.
Do you believe in the maxim, "No pain, no gain”? Why or why not?
I don't believe in that theory. I don't believe a client has to be pushed to their breaking point in order to achieve results. All that does is scare them into thinking exercise always has to be painful in order to get results. Instead I encourage them to do their best and just be consistent. Consistency. That's the most important factor in exercise if you want results.

During the 1991 World Championships in Athletics in Tokyo, Mike Powell soared through the air to cover a distance of 29 feet, 4.5 inches. Not only did that distance narrowly top the mark of track legend Carl Lewis, it also set a world record for the long jump—a record that stands to this day.
Now coaching, Mike shares the secrets and techniques that made him a two-time Silver medalist at the Olympics. He teaches the next generation of jumpers—who range from beginners to world-class athletes—at the Academy of Speed, a massive facility outfitted with straightaway tracks, turf fields, and a 6,000-square-foot weight room. The world-class training equipment and Mike's wisdom are used to teach athletes from all sports how to run faster and jump higher, which are both useful when competing or trying to snatch the cookie jar from the top shelf of the cupboard.
My Gym, which currently has more than 200 international locations, began more than 20 years ago as a structured place for children to safely play, acquire new skills, and romp off a sugar buzz. All classes are organized according to age level—starting as young as 6 months—and designed to incorporate the latest physiological and psychological research. Tiny Tykes gets babies moving with help from their parents, Mighty Mites teaches toddlers self-reliance and beginning sports skills, and Champions, a class for kids aged 6 to 9, emphasizes the importance of using teamwork to master more complex sports skills and achieve group goals such as building a human pyramid to reach the cookie jar. My Gym's energetic instructors are experts at using music, dance, and gymnastics to build youngsters' strength and self-esteem while stimulating their giggle-plexes. The noncompetitive environment fosters creativity, and hands-on activities boost children's learning retention and fun quotient.
