It\u2019s these components that have led to an explosion in small group training, and the reason why Body Outfitters has added an additional 1,000 square feet of workout space. Moreland, a lifelong resident of Zionsville and 1996 graduate of Zionsville Community High School, opened Body Outfitters in 2010 as a way to give back to the community where he was born and raised. \u201cBody Outfitters allows me to positively influence and help the overall health of the community,\u201d he said during a recent interview. The business, located in the Village on Cedar Street, is a place for Zionsville residents to focus on fitness. Moreland and his staff provide half-hour and one hour, one-on-one and small group training opportunities designed to help individuals reach their health and wellness goals. Most people come in for strength training and weight management, though the Body Outfitters staff is always adapting based on each person\u2019s unique needs. A trend has developed and customers are looking to leverage the fellowship of exercising together. \u201cGroup strength training workouts are part of the changing fitness landscape,\u201d Moreland said. \u201cThe benefits are that you still get much of the individual training and one-on-one attention, but in a group setting, which provides more accountability but is a less expensive workout.\u201d Small groups are formed around people\u2019s similar schedules, goals, and fitness levels. \u201cWhat\u2019s great about these groups,\u201d said Moreland, \u201cis the way they develop their own personas. The group of women who come in at 5:30 in the morning are different from those that arrive at 6:00 in the evening. Communities have grown from within these groups. They give themselves group names and even have t-shirts printed. By working hard \u2013 laboring, struggling, and, ultimately, succeeding together \u2013 a common bond is created.\u201d Moreland said some groups come in together but that\u2019s unique. \u201cUsually a couple of people establish a group time, and then others jump in. While we encourage group members to commit to a time slot so they work with the same trainer and group consistently, there is the option to move between groups if the need arises in their schedules,\u201d he explained. To ensure members experience the full value of the group session, Body Outfitters maintains a ratio of one trainer for every four participants. \u201cWe\u2019ve found that\u2019s a strong proportion to ensure each person gets the attention they need within their group experience.\u201d Though the trends in the fitness industry are constantly changing, Moreland said the core tenets of exercise and wellness remain. \u201cWe adhere to the concepts of baseline physiology. It still comes down to hard work, appropriate nutrition, and rest.\u201d Body Outfitters offers new customers a free Fitness Consultation and two free workouts to get started.
