If you really want to get pumped up during a workout and relax during a cool down, the right music makes a huge difference. At Body Machine Fitness (BMF), we believe in the power of music so much, we hired Tog Bomb, a nationally renowned music producer and DJ, to curate and compose music for our group personal training classes in Plano.
Over the past 10 years Tog has produced music for TV shows, legendary artists like Ludacris and Lil Jon, movie trailers and sound effects for feature films like Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Spider Man: Homecoming and others, as well as commercials for the likes of Lexus and Taco Bell. You’ll also find him performing at some of the biggest music festivals in the country.
When it comes to working out, cybersecurity consultant and exercise enthusiast Greg N. has tried just about everything – big box gyms, trendy fitness studios, group fitness classes, CrossFit, spin classes, running clubs – you name it. When he realized a 45-50-minute fitness class at Body Machine Fitness (BMF) in Plano yielded results that take up to two hours elsewhere, Greg was hooked.
The 36 year old was introduced to BMF when he stopped in for a smoothie after attending a runner’s social event in Plano last summer. Curious about what BMF had to offer, Greg thought he’d give one of our group personal training classes a try.

Summer will be here before we know it. If you’ve put on a few lbs. this winter and want to get in shape to hit the beach or pool by summer, you better start now. According to Body Machine Fitness Plano trainer David C., “Committing to 90 days of eating right and exercising will allow you to see results in a safe and healthy timeframe.”
It also sets the foundation for a long-term approach to looking and feeling good. “What I really like to ask people who come to our Plano fitness studio is whether they are looking for a beach body or a lifetime body. If your goal is beach body, you’re giving yourself permission to take the short-term track. Why not choose the long-term?” David says.

According to a recent Life & Style magazine article, the Kardashian (and Jenner) sisters each follow very different diet and exercise routines to maintain their signature curves.

The fact that 4,000 fitness pros chose HIIT (high-intensity interval training) as the TOP fitness trend for 2018, comes as no surprise to Body Machine Fitness (BMF) Master Trainer Ethan M. “I am a science nerd, and HIIT has been proven time and time again to be one of the most effective ways to burn fat by stimulating your post metabolic rate (the amount of calories you burn AFTER your workout), so it’s a no brainer for me,” Ethan says.
He also loves HIIT workouts because they are high-tempo and high-energy in nature. As Ethan explains, “The HIIT group workouts at our Plano boutique fitness studio give our members super powers in class. They end up doing things they’ve never done before in their...more
