Not all workout regimens require lifting weights in order to perform resistance training. We understand that there are alternatives to achieving your objectives aside of just pumping iron. Bear in mind that when you work with a personal fitness specialist here at Active Bodies you are working with a professional that has expertise in human physiology and body mechanics. Thus, you can expect that your exercise program will be a safe, efficient and effective experience.
Here at Active Bodies we believe that the greatest benefit that one can receive from a regular exercise program is improved quality of living. Engaging in a regular workout routine will simply make one feel better in all facets of life. It can make doing rudimentary activities easier like standing up from a sofa to walking a flight of stairs to more fluidity swinging a golf club. And, there’s something to be said of the positive psychological effects of exercising. The after-effects of exercise can be energizing in and of itself. Simply being able to perform many of the daily activities without hindrance can be very rewarding. There’s really no limit to how good one can feel as a result of a regular exercise program.
There is a medical benefit, as well. When combined with a proper eating plan an exercise routine can help to slow or offset many diseases and clinical conditions that might otherwise worsen due to inactivity and poor diet. This is not to say that exercise will prevent these harmful conditions but it may lessen their effects or even the chances of them occurring.
So, if your goal is to simply improve or maintain your sense of well-being we can design our Better Living program to your specifications. Here at Active Bodies you will engage in an exercise routine that is geared toward helping you live longer, healthier and happier.

If you’re an expecting mother this is an exciting time in your life. It can also be a trying time as your body courses through its myriad of chemical and physiological changes causing your body to morph. The benefits of pre-natal exercise are numerous and include control of gestational diabetes and pregnancy-induced hypertension. When you participate in our Mommy-to-be program here at Active Bodies we will put you through a program to help keep you and your precious unborn baby healthy and fit throughout the term of your pregnancy.
We here at Active Bodies would like to extend our congratulations on your new bundle of joy! After you’ve had an appropriate amount of recovery from delivering your baby, you’re ready to get involved in an exercise program. Let’s get you back on track to where you were pre-pregnancy….or better! If you find yourself inseparable from your new baby, we will simply devise a workout plan that includes the both of you! But, bear in mind that the female body will return back to normal at its own pace, and initially it might be more prudent to focus on improving your health and wellness. The toning and firming will soon follow.
With an ever increasing senior and active adult community there is an equally growing need for this segment of our population to participate in some form of exercise. As we reach retirement age we significantly lose some of the abilities that we have relied on our whole lives such as balance, stability and overall strength. Here at Active Bodies we offer exercise programs to offset the effects of aging and improve your health and well-being. Our programs can reverse the effects of osteoporosis and improve bone density, as well as, restore your confidence to perform ordinary household tasks like, opening a jar or placing a box on a tall shelf!
If you have a physical limitation or a medical condition we can devise a workout routine to help you with your fitness objectives. Don’t let your condition prevent you from engaging in a fitness program. Here at Active Bodies we have worked with individuals with various physical limitations, including fibromyalgia, RSD (reflexive sympathetic dystrophy), limited mobility, severe arthritis, total joint replacements, organ transplant recipients, sciatica, etc. Whether you wish to elevate your current fitness levels or improve upon your own physical limitations we will create an exercise program to satisfy your needs.
Some medical conditions that require special considerations and care during an exercise routine are diabetes, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) prenatal, metabolic syndrome (obesity), asthma and cardiovascular disease. Sometimes these conditions require a medical clearance from your doctor. Once we’ve established your limitations we can begin the careful process of devising your workout routine.
No matter what your physical history, please feel free to contact us here at Active Bodies to discuss what type of program we can design for you. We will find a way to work with your own abilities to help you become an active body.
This 45-minute session breaks the mold of conventional exercise programs. It is a blend of resistance training, cardiovascular conditioning, body stabilization and core development using dynamic body movements to transform the body and maximize calorie burning – during AND for hours after the workout. Any given workout can utilize kettlebells, resistance bands, battle ropes, dumbbells, TRX, sandbags, and whatever else we can find all while employing a timed-interval format.
It’s a challenging workout where all levels of fitness are welcome to participate. If the body is not challenged it will not transform. That said, we do not expect you to be in great shape when you first attend. Heck, that’s why we put this program together in the first place! It’s that kick in the butt you’ve been waiting for. So, work to your own ability and challenge yourself.
Welcome to a fun exercise program that you will love to hate that will improve your fitness and help you change the shape of your body!
LOFI is a 45-minute low-impact (no hopping, running or joint-jarring movements) high-intensity workout. Similar to it’s HIFI sibling this class will have you crawling, pushing, pulling, lifting, holding, twisting and screaming. It employs various timed intervals (you never know which interval sequence until you arrive) to burn a boatload of calories, not only during the workout, but for hours afterwards.
This class is designed with beginners and older adults in mind. The low-impact exercises help to lower the risk of aches & pains in the joints during the workout. Therefore, you can focus on the workout and allow the muscles to take all the suffering…in a good way!
You will go through a series of dynamic body movements using anything and everything we have available during the workout. Work at your own pace. Let your body acclimate to the program. The more often you show up the better your body adapts. After a few workouts you can really crank it up to burn off those pesky extra calories.
Remember, just because it is low impact does not mean it’s low intensity. You will see amazing improvements in your fitness levels and your waistline.
Nutrition for everyone
For any fitness/exercise program to be fully effective, a proper nutrition program needs to accompany it. Whether your goal is a world class athlete or you just want to get back in shape, proper nutrition should be a part of your fitness program. Also, we are well experienced working with various eating restrictions, especially diabetes.
No guess work!
We include nutrition counseling and meal planning in your personal training package. We first perform a calorie expenditure assessment on you to determine the appropriate plan of action for your nutrition program and walk you through the process. In addition, you’ll receive a shopping list to eliminate the stress of determining what foods to purchase. The best part: we take the guess work out of your daily eating plan!
What to eat!
The importance of knowing what to eat is paramount! Eating the proper foods is absolutely necessary for the success of any exercise/nutrition regimen. You will also gain an understanding of portion size, an equally important requirement for achieving fitness/wellness success.
When to eat it!
Timing is crucial. Included with your nutrition consultation you will get a description of how often you should eat your meals. If you have an extremely busy lifestyle we can work with you to develop a strategy for meeting your dietary needs and suggest drive-thru healthy options.
Why to eat it!
We also inform you of the important benefits associated with your meal plan. With this information we’re sure you’ll gain an appreciation for why you should eat certain foods over others.
