Best Boot Camp


Kelvin Gary’s vision for Body Space Fitness included economic alternatives to personal training, which makes this bright, well-equipped studio attractive to the city’s cash-strapped workout-minded population who’d like a little help achieving athletic goals. The boutique gym offers three levels of small group classes, most capped at 10 students, that put participants through ever-changing circuits of high-intensity, full-body exercises designed to boost metabolism and make rapid and dramatic changes to the body. What really sets this place apart, though, is the caliber of the trainers leading the classes, an attentive and extremely knowledgeable set who make form corrections and performance-enhancing modifications for every individual in the group, thereby accomplishing Gary’s goal of bestowing the benefits of personal training sans the private session. You’ll sweat hard at Body Space, you’ll never be bored, and you’ll see results. You’ll also never wonder if you’re in danger of hurting yourself in the process of getting in shape.
