Brian Farrell grew up participating in a variety of sports, and his extensive athletic background led him to do personal training for the last three years.

Now, he is helping people get in shape and achieve their fitness goals at Burn Boot Camp's newest location.

Recently opened in Westchase, Burn Boot Camp offers workout camps for people of all different fitness levels.

"Even though it's in a group setting, it's still very personalized," said Farrell, manager and head trainer.

A member of the training staff has a "focus meeting" with each individual to help determine their goals.

"We try to help them achieve that," Farrell said. "We help with diet and nutrition guidance and motivate them from there."

Most camps are 45 minutes long, and are primarily for women, but there are also co-ed classes available throughout the week. Farrell points out that there aren't any fitness machines at their facility.

"One of the slogans is 'I don't use machines, I am a machine,' " Farrell said. "We never have the exact same workout twice."

Camps are held Monday-Friday, and every Saturday there is a free, co-ed camp that is open to the public. Free child care is available during certain camps.

Burn Boot Camp is located at 12080 Race Track Road, Unit P10.

  1. Related Group breaks ground on complex at old Tampa Tribune site

    Real Estate

    TAMPA — When Miami developer Jorge Perez first eyed a 4.2-acre tract on the west bank of the Hillsborough River two years ago, people asked him if he wouldn't prefer to build on the opposite side closer to the downtown core.

    No way.

    Food & Dining

    In the early 1900s, hotels offered "table d'hote" or "prix fixe" menus as a form of loss leader.

Prohibition may have contributed to a gradual shift toward a la carte …

  5. Trigaux: As Florida seeks top 10 status as best business state, red flag rises on workforce

    Business

    In the eternal quest to appeal more to business than other states, Florida's managed to haul itself out of some pretty mediocre years. After scoring an impressive 8 among 50 states way back in 2007, Florida suffered horribly during and immediately after the recession. Its rank sank as low as No. 30 only four years ago, …

    Florida's trying to make strides in preparing its high school and college graduates for the rapidly changing skill sets of today's workforce. But the latest CNBC ranking of the best and worst states for business gave Florida poor marks for education, ranking No. 40 (tied with South Carolina for education) among the 50 states. Still, Florida ranked No. 12 overall in the best business states annual ranking. [Alan Berner/Seattle Times]
