A workout boasting cardio, toning and core training can now be found in Marysville.

Fit Body Bootcamp, located inside Livin Up 2 Fitness and Wellness Center at 1004 Columbus Ave., opened last week, providing fitness training unlike anything else in Marysville, owner Jeremy Werner said.

"The service and the fitness formula that we have is kind of unmatched by anybody," he said.

Werner described the boot camps as personal training in a group setting with fast-paced, fun and challenging workouts that are always different.

"We don't use machines," he said. "It's a combination of three workouts in one; we combine fat-melting cardio, body toning resistance and tummy-tightening core training. It's really just an unstoppable fitness formula."

According to Werner, obesity is an epidemic that is on the rise.

"I think there's a lot of misinformation out there. Everyone thinks there's a magic pill or there's all these crash diets that don't work," he said.

Werner played two years of professional football in Europe and three years of arena football. After sustaining a knee injury, he became a personal trainer.

"I played professional football for five years and this is the way I train," he said. "It's very athletic-based, very functional-based and very effective.

"Really, the best way to do it is through hard work, dedication and good nutritional advice, and that's what we provide," Werner said.

The trainers, or "body transformation experts," Werner said, take all the guesswork out of getting and staying in shape.

"You can't out-train a bad diet," he said. "You can work out as hard as you want for as long as you want, but if your nutrition is not in line, then you're just spinning your wheels."

In addition to the Marysville location, Werner oversees two other Fit Body Bootcamp locations in Powell and Mount Vernon.

He has been a personal trainer for six years, and after working long hours as an independent trainer, he said he felt limited in the number of people he could help. Fit Body Bootcamp has allowed him to cut back his hours and increase the number of people he reaches, he said.

"My goal in the next five to six years is to try to help 10,000 people, whether it be through my newsletter, fitness emails, fitness magazine, boot camps (or) personal training," he said.

Changing lives every day is a big part of the job Werner said he enjoys.

"I wake up every day excited because I know that I'm going to make a difference," he said.

Werner said he hopes to expand to a larger facility as the program grows.

"I genuinely care about every single person," he said of his clients. "I want every single person to succeed."
