St. Louis Best Bridal gives you the scoop on how to stay safe while getting into shape.

Carl Givens of Given100
Carl Givens tailors personal training to your specific fitness goals. His gym, located near Forest Park, allows a limited number of clients at a time and checks everyone’s temperatures before they are permitted to enter. Training sessions last for 50 minutes each and allow time for proper cleaning between clients.
“We incorporate muscle building and cardio into your workout,” Givens says. “Our training allows for you to build muscle and burn fat at the same time, getting you closer to your goals one session at a time. We want you comfortable in your body and [in how you] express it to the world.”

For $199 a month, she develops a custom workout plan and provides nutrition support to get you on track to better health.
“Nutrition is important in making sustainable changes,” she says. “I assess my clients based on their needs, past workout history, what they actually enjoy doing physically and make a plan from there.
