If you ask the trainers at K Zone what the keys to fitness are, they might say function and variety. And they would know: they've all lost 20–60 pounds themselves. At this studio, their main goals are to incorporate a variety of exercises for their clients during personal training and boot camps that keep muscles guessing and heart rates up. Kettlebells, free weights, resistance bands, and medicine balls are just some of the tools they use to help clients achieve their fitness goals. During boot camps, each client gets an intense full-body workout and sessions are available at varying times throughout the week to help accommodate almost any schedule.
At age 16, Danny De Salvatore was astounded at how his body conformed to his wishes after a weightlifting regimen. What began as an effort to better his soccer playing grew into a lifelong passion—he earned a bachelor's degree in exercise science and a personal-training certification through ISSA. With credentials in hand, he worked at national gym chains throughout Columbus and taught in Rome at fitness centers during the summer. He continuously tracked observations as he met with clients, making note of which strategies led to results and which were simply fads. Soon, he was ready to open his own facility and cultivate the intimate, small-business vibe that would lead to loyal members.
Danny has gathered a team of experts to man one-on-one training sessions as well as group classes at Breathe Fitness. All of them contribute to a familial support network, making customers feel welcome by memorizing their names and tattooing their initials onto each pectoral. Tanning and nutritional wellness services round out the gym's fitness offerings for a balanced approach to physical welfare.
At 25,000 square-feet, Wyandotte Athletic Club provides members with plenty of facilities for getting in shape. They can swim laps in the indoor or outdoor pools, sign up for one-on-one training sessions with certified personal trainers, or attend group fitness classes such as yoga and aqua aerobics. Those who prefer to sweat alone will appreciate the vast selection of fitness equipment that's scattered throughout the facility. On top of everything, Wyandotte Athletic Club features amenities like childcare, massage therapy, and dry saunas, the most ideal spots to heat up your post-workout meal.
At Old Skool Fight Sports and Fitness, head coach Rob Pilger has won three Golden Gloves championships in boxing and fought professionally. Nowadays, though, he and his team helm workouts for all levels. Boot camps are taught by National Physique Competitor Erin Brown, who uses her boxing skills and passion for weightlifting to focus on skills more than fighting in the ring, with exercises like jump roping, burpees, and footwork drills. Trainers also lead more advanced training sessions for competitive boxers, along with youth boxing workouts and mixed-martial-arts sessions.
