Fit Body Boot Camp's instructors all over the world share a common goal: to help clients hit their fitness and weight-loss goals with regimented training programs. Trainers lead group workouts that combine cardio with resistance exercises, strength training, and light alligator wrestling. They design the workouts to be as time-effective as possible and vary the routines constantly to avoid workout plateaus that can leave clients feeling uninspired. Trainers empower their students with healthy eating guidelines to keep motivation high outside of class.
During one-on-one sessions, certified personal trainers plan out tailored fitness programs, which clients can take with them to Fit Body Boot Camp’s gyms to continue shaping up on their own.
Unless you count watching a Star Trek episode or waiting in line at the DMV, 45 minutes isn't a lot of time to do much of anything. That isn't the case at Combat Zone Fitness. Each of its short, yet intense 45-minute boot-camp–style classes promises to help fitness-seekers burn lots of calories during workouts designed to build strength and endurance. Just one session could entail a blend of cardio, resistance training, and interval training.
Matt Patterson founded Victory Fitness & Training for a simple reason: he’s passionate about fitness’s transformative powers. He shares them with others through women’s-only boot-camp classes, which he conducts in an extremely supportive environment. Patterson works to help his clients reach their fitness goals as well as find self-confidence.
It’s easy to see the imprint of Body & Soul Fitness founder Jade Reyes on his studio’s class curriculum. His specialty in dance aerobics is displayed in exotic-dance and Latin-dance-inspired Zumba classes. And his training in kickboxing informs not only classes in the same discipline, but also body-combat classes, which feature high- and low-impact moves to challenge exercisers of all fitness levels. He also specializes in spinning and knows much about massage therapy and relaxation, which explains why yoga is on the schedule and drinking Mountain Dew and screaming Van Halen lyrics is not.
When Misty Gonsalves opened The Body Shop Fitness in 2009, she only had four clients. And while the studio was small, it was mighty. But by building relationships with those clients, Misty was able to customize her offerings to their fitness goals. Although The Body Shop Fitness's clientele and staff continue to grow, the focus still remains on each client's personal objectives by offering a diverse schedule of classes. Read on to learn about a few:
Tabata: This small-group training emphasizes quality, not quantity. The sessions are designed to help students develop healthy habits via achievable, efficient high-intensity interval exercises.
Butts & Gutts: As the name implies, this 45-minute class provides a workout that focuses on toning participants' glutes and abdominal muscles while increasing their strength.
Boxing: For 30 minutes, this course gets hearts pumping with a selection of boxing and cardio drills. Those of all skill levels are welcome, but everyone must provide their own boxing gloves.
The experienced staff at POWER trains athletes of all ages at three Central Valley locations. Boot camp classes get grown-ups fit with thrice-weekly workouts designed to help them reach fitness goals. Participants bring hand weights to each session, and leave with instructions for at-home workouts for days off. Meanwhile, across padded floors and rows of trampolines, kids and teenagers in cheerleading classes tumble and spring their way to pep-rally mastery. Lead by USASF-certified instructors, each class focuses on team-energizing spirit and nurtures the dedication, commitment, and level of fitness that cheerleading requires. Whether practicing cheers or building human pyramids to astonish archeologists, students learn gymnastics skills that boost both strength and flexibility, readying them for school functions and competitions.
