The trainers at Precision Fitness believe that achieving wellbeing is a deeply individual process. For this reason, they work only with small groups of students, avoiding the intimidating bustle that?s common at most gyms and instead facilitating focused, nonjudgmental sessions. The intimate setting allows them to create exercise regimens for patrons of all walks of life, from those with little gym experience to seasoned athletes or brides-to-be. Their programs typically involve a mix of cardiovascular and weight training, as well as nutrition tips for healthier long-term diets that don't just advise patrons to eat two apples a day. Though they embrace a private atmosphere during lessons, group activities outside of the gym, such as bowling outings and dinner parties, encourage a sense of community among their clients.
You won’t find any treadmills or ellipticals at Bear Flag CrossFit, just 4,000 square feet of iron bars, weights, rowing machines, gymnastics rings, and kettlebells. Beneath an American flag and a California flag, CrossFit-certified trainers Eric Schubring and Will Hurst lead squads of athletes through each Workout of the Day (WOD). WODs never repeat and incorporate exercises such as Olympic weightlifting, body-weight exercises, heaving kettlebells, and rowing—all of which are based on CrossFit’s dogma of varied, functional fitness.
The certified trainers at 6 Degree Fitness believe that the best motivation for keeping up a gym routine is measurable results. Working to make their gym a welcoming, accessible place for everyone, regardless of fitness level, the professional staffers here offer intense personal training and group fitness sessions such as boot camp. Nutritional counseling is also available, helping members boost their metabolisms while they're shredding calories. The fitness center features a full array of weight-training and cardio machines—everything clients need to succeed along their path to better health.
At Club Results, power couple Cynthia and Steve Teran help clients of all ages, body types, and fitness levels get into the best shape of their lives. A former Miss Galaxy and Miss Fitness U.S.A., Cynthia helps her students build lean muscle and jumpstart their metabolism with classes, while certified personal trainer Steve mentors clients in safe, effective weight and cardio workout techniques. During their Total Body Training Bootcamp sessions, participants sculpt their bodies and burn fat with an interval training method that firms and slims much faster than a boring trek on a treadmill or an afternoon spent trying to lift barbells with their minds.
Some people are born athletes, but proper training can give most anyone an athletic edge. The team of trainers at Velocity Sports Performance knows how to take personal performance to the next level, just as they have done with their former clients?many of whom include professional and international athletes. Programs for student athletes help them achieve new heights from season to season and training for adults ranges from group fitness classes to elite personal training. With a massive 15,000 square feet of football turf, running tracks, ball courts, and lifting areas, programs can be tailored to help athletes excel in just about any sport.
