Elaine Miller and Narina Tatoussian like to make people sweat.
The two are trainers and co-owners of All About You Wellness Bootcamp. They coach dozens of people, most of them Glendale residents, in a spacious basketball gym where participants show up for hour-long exercise sessions beginning at 5:45 a.m.
The workout routines vary by design each week. Miller said that she and Tatoussian switch up the routine weekly so as to avoid repetitive workouts that breed content muscles.
On a recent Wednesday, 16 participants arrived for a 9 a.m. session. First they stretched, and then they ran warm-up laps around the gym to the beat of Lady Gaga.
This particular session was heavy on elastic exercise bands to strengthen arm and leg muscles.
Between band exercises, Tatoussian ordered the group to do 100-rep sets of jumping jacks. She counted into her microphone as they jumped.
