A new fitness center combining the best aspects of fitness programs from multiple ideologies will open Saturday, Nov. 2, at 48724 Gratiot Ave. in Chesterfield Township.
Owner Blake Bowman said GuerrillaZen Fitness will offer traditional fitness services such as personal training, group fitness classes, and nutritional counseling, as well as cutting-edge programs like posture correction using state-of-the-art analysis software, and corrective exercise protocols geared toward preventing injury and optimizing performance.
“GuerrillaZen approaches fitness differently than others,” Bowman said in a news release. “We combine the best aspects of fitness from multiple different backgrounds and ideologies, such as tai chi and weight training.”
Bowman said he and his staff believe their mixed approach to fitness is not only the safest and most sustainable way to train, but also the most fun and effective.
“As the name implies, GuerrillaZen offers dynamic training opportunities that represent two distinct sides of fitness,” he said. “There is a hard side that stresses the body to grow stronger, and there is a softer side to prime the body for recovery.”
Bowman is a Wayne State graduate and a certified personal trainer and corrective exercise specialist with more than years experience training triathletes, rowers, soccer players, wrestlers, office workers and post- or pre-surgery patients.
He said his personal experience as an athlete dealing with injuries totally transformed his view of fitness, and what was important. He focuses on delivering concrete results, while protecting the body.
Bowman says he’s passionate about teaching others how to prevent and heal similar injuries, while still training to be the strongest possible version of themselves.
GuerrillaZen will offer group classes ine boxing, tabata training, tai chi, core focus and kettle bell training.
Nutritional counseling is provided by a certified holistic health coach well-versed in more than 100 different dietary theories.
