One of the newest and most unique facilities on the scene is Colorado-based Core Progression, a franchise operation that offers total body wellness in a boutique-style studio, combining customized personal and semi- private training with group classes, wellness providers, and retail products. At Core Progression, clients receive unparalleled results-driven training, nutritional education, and preventative services from chiropractors and physical and massage therapists at an affordable price, so everyone can experience a healthier, more fulfilling lifestyle. Core Progression was founded by Jonathan Cerf, who grew up in a suburb of Denver and planned to go to medical school after graduating from Baylor University. After he was put on a waiting list, he found a job working as a trainer at a local gym. He soon realized that changing people’s lives through health and wellness was still his calling, but that helping them in a preventive manner, via exercise and diet, as opposed to a prescriptive manner, via medicine, was the way he wanted to go. “My family was shocked when I walked away from the medical route,” he recounts, “but I realized that personal training was the path for me.” AT A GLANCE CORE PROGRESSION WHAT: Personal training and wellness facility WHERE: Headquarters in Northglenn, Colorado WEBSITE:
