A Standardized System Is Born
In pursuit of a system to standardize the personal training service with multiple team members
and deliver identified progress for each client, Korey published a book in 2018, Your Performance Journey. Your Performance Journey consists of 21 milestones that personalize the movement experience. As hard as it is to believe, to this day, the fitness industry has no regulatory or gold standard system in place that promotes personalization and safety while delivering progress based upon research.
The brand pivot to 21BOOM
In March of 2020, the global pandemic forced Plaza Fitness Performance to close for six months. Instead of stopping the business and furloughing the team, the organization committed to delivering the movement experience to our members while supporting the team and their families financially. The pandemic became the catalyst and opportunity for what 21BOOM evolved into. Over the next few months, the brick & mortar underwent a brand pivot from Plaza Fitness Performance to 21BOOM.
A Scalable online Personal Wellness Platform is Finalized
The global pandemic in 2020 forced every service we offer to an online delivery method. Thankfully, we were already in our third iteration of our online platform. Meeting our members where they were while still delivering a personalized experience became key. The completion of the 21BOOM App became the most significant tech accomplishment in the history of the organization.

The Journey to Extraordinary Living
Move Forward, due out in July of 2022, is Korey's 2nd book. Move Forward leans on the operating system to unearth the path to extraordinary living. Reimagine fitness and take a deep dive into mindset, the evolution of exercise science.
Move Forward is a game-changer for the fitness industry.
Deliberate exercise has existed for centuries. A recommended historical article, “The History of Physical Fitness,” was completed by Erwan Le Corre from MovNat in 2015. Many literature reviews have provided concrete evidence that exercise is a critical component in our modern lifestyles. One such article, “Exercise – The Miracle Cure,” from the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges in 2015 provides compelling evidence that everyone must exercise to lead a life of optimal health.
The modern proliferation of the fitness industry has given us bigger groups, lower prices, insufficient personalization, and poorer outcomes. A whopping 80% of us do not obtain the minimum amount of recommended daily exercise. In fact, as of 2016, our society was 40% obese with projections reaching 50% by 2030, according to the Centers For Disease Control (CDC). However, when these projections were made, they did not account for a global pandemic that would accelerate the obesity crisis. It would not be a surprise to anyone if those projections were today’s reality.
Who’s to blame for these poor outcomes? The gym industry? Professional coaches? Society and the people who choose not to exercise? Our local, state, and federal government and the leaders who set policy?
Regardless of your answer to that question, we arrive at an urgency for potential solutions. 21BOOM represents an incredible option to deliver better outcomes for our society. There is no better time than now to establish a standard that begins with personalization, promotes body friendly movements and safety, inherently motivates, and all comes together with accountability from a qualified and caring coach.
At the moment, the fitness industry is the wild, wild west with no regulation from local, state, or federal agency. This means anyone can present themselves as a personal trainer or coach and begin recommending anything, including contraindicated or inappropriate movement. Our society has never been presented with the risks of injury associated with the perilous cocktail of large group bootcamps and external load. Science and study has not caught up to verifying the many strains, pains, and permanent injuries that result from inadequate screening, negligent coaching, and programming void of proven logic.
21BOOM promises progress through 21 milestones that personalizes the experience for all fitness levels, age groups, and movement capabilities. When applied, this approach yields an easy to follow ‘If This Then That’ protocol based upon specific human functional movement assessments. When a personalized approach is taken, progress is experienced. Progression is a vital human motivator for exercise adherence and perceived value, especially for those who may be sporadic or new to exercise.
