At Richmond Balance, trainers forge bodies to match the beauty of life-changing events. Their bridal boot camp, which has been featured in Richmond Bride, tones wives-to-be with regular, small-group workouts that culminate in confident struts down the aisle. Likewise, their new mommy boot-camp classes help ladies achieve post-pregnancy goals, such as a slimmer stomach or arms that can change stroller tires without a jack. Support remains the common element of these specialized programs—the staff gathers students with similar objectives and capitalizes on a sense of camaraderie. The same method guides the Balanced Buddies system, in which partners share the same personal trainer, and PWR! Fitness Training, a regimen for guests with disorders such as Parkinson's disease.
Even outside the communal atmosphere of classes, Richmond Balance prioritizes an intimate, custom approach to health. Its certified trainers will travel to homes for private sessions or supervise clients as they sweat aboard the gym's Precor, Tuff Stuff, and Schwinn equipment. During workouts, guests can occupy their eyes by watching the individual flat-screen televisions on select machines or by counting the exposed bricks on the walls around them.
