Next Level Fitness
Next Level Fitness fosters a nurturing family environment by fielding a supportive staff, furnishing a host of up-to-date equipment, and gearing training toward each visitor's individual goals. Cheery yellow walls augment the gym's welcoming vibe, which is less intimidating than a puppy playing soft jazz on the piano. The 7,000-square-foot workout area brims with both machines and free weights. Treadmills direct their glare toward mounted flat-screen television screens and holograms of canteens situated just out of reach. A cadre of certified trainers—all of whom were college or pro athletes—impart their kinesthetic wisdom during one-hour personalized sessions, and group classes and boot camps spur wholesome bouts of perspiration with spinning courses and core-bolstering moves. Next Level specializes in athletic-performance training for all ages and sports, having run players from the NFL, NBA, and MLB through their paces in a 12,000-square-foot turf field house. Amenities such as batting cages, pitching cages, and cages containing surly pythons can sharpen clients' speed, strength, and evasiveness for upcoming games. Next Level even rents out the field house for sundry other inertia-obliterating purposes, such as games of dodge ball, rugby, football, and track and field events.
