Ever since The Alaska Club opened its first location in 1986, they've been striving to serve their members by adding amenities, classes, and opening new locations. Though each location’s offerings vary, they supplement their well-stocked fleets of cardio machines and strength equipment with cycling studios, climbing walls, basketball courts, swimming pools, and play centers for the kids. The club also offers spa services including hydromassage beds, tanning, and saunas.
Group fitness classes include yoga, step aerobics, and Pilates, and personal trainers stand at the ready to help clients focus on fitness goals. The clubs also offer swim lessons and summer camps for kids, setting in stone their commitment to making The Alaska Club a place for the whole family, not the half-formed family, which needs at least seven more years to gestate in the laboratory incubator.
Helmed by experienced trainer and former Buffalo State Bengals hockey captain Rocky Reeves, Rock Hard Fitness squeezes functional workouts into a convenient 30-minute package. A maximum class size of 12 ensures that each recruit receives trainer attention as well as group motivation. During strength-training sessions, exercisers of all levels bolster muscles with strength circuits, which alternate weightlifting with bodyweight exercises to prevent dumbbells from developing a superiority complex. High-intensity boot camps goad students to maximize their potential with dance, techno, and rock music that encourages shimmying betwixt reps. Core and cardio workouts then fortify heart health as they tone perspiring torsos and torch calories. Patrons should report to the Rock Hard studio for their indoor routines, which, like most psychic dentists, do not require prescheduled appointments. To help clients tackle their wellness goals as quickly as possible, the studio also offers personal training, meal-planning assistance, and Isagenix nutritional supplements.
Body Renew Alaska's 12 boot-camp sessions (three classes a week) help participants shed pounds and build muscle in a group fitness environment. Each one-hour session, available at four different locations, will push participants' workouts to the next level to produce intense results in one month. Augment your muscle chiseling with six months of full access to eBodyLive, where users can utilize a customized online food and workout journal and four one-on-one video chats with a nationally certified trainer who reviews and guides each fitness program. The workouts—sent as detailed instructions with video clips and images—can be sent to most phones, allowing participants to access their fitness regimen from the same device they use to arrange meetings of the Millard Fillmore Appreciation Society.
Laughing Lotus Yoga of Anchorage’s founders, Kim and Svia, have shaped their studio around the mantra “freedom in practice”—the idea that clients should interpret yoga to best suit their own needs. In this mantra's spirit, the 11-yogi staff instructs classes in diverse modalities, such as stress-relieving Hatha, mind-and-body-balancing Kundalini, and Vinyasa flow, a mashup of styles. To further personalize lessons, instructors can tailor asanas and stretches to injured clients in private sessions, to expecting mothers in prenatal classes, or to children stressed from memorizing all the rules of freeze tag in yoga for kids aged 3–5 and 6–10.
An on-site healing team pampers physiques with traditional massages, Thai bodywork, and Rolfing. The studio’s boutique stockpiles yoga gear from brands such as form-fitting lululemon and festively tie-dyed Shining Shakti.
Curves has established nearly 10,000 gyms for women in more than 85 countries, with 4 million members worldwide. Three Anchorage locations invite ladies of all fitness levels to the training circuit. Circuit trainees gather in a circle comprised of 13 resistance machines and 13 recovery stations. During the course of a 30-minute workout, they alternate between machines that work two opposing muscle groups with a single motion and recovery stations where they run, dance, or swagger in place to maintain heart rates. Ladies carry Curves Smart chips that feed their personal fitness info into the training machines. A green light on the chip indicates sufficient workout intensity, which rises as one's strength increases.
Curves now offers the 90-day Curves Complete program, which pairs diet and exercise with the motivation of peers and trainers.
The medical staff at Alaska Premier Health carries on a 19-year tradition of helping clients achieve weight-management goals with personalized weight-loss programs. The team begins with an in-depth consultation, analyzing each patient's social and family history and current health before embarking on a body-fat analysis that helps determine the caloric intake and chip-aisle circumventions needed for healthy weight loss. Non-Herculean exercise and diet recommendations add balance to programs and facilitate sustainable results, while meal-replacement products from OptiFast curb calorie deficits. Medical professionals are available through extended office hours and a "no-waiting" appointment policy and also give patients a calorie-counting book for recording daily food intake and svelte, cake-free dreams.
At Alaska Pain & Injury Clinic, Dr. Evan Tipikin straightens out crooked spines and wayward lifestyles with chiropractic care, massage therapy, and nutritional counseling. Though his list of services runs long, a single philosophy unites them all: no two bodies are quite the same. That’s why Dr. Tipikin insists on conducting a full evaluation each time he sees a new patient. During your initial visit, he may jot down notes on your reflexes as well.
Armed with that knowledge, the doctor and his team develop personalized plans to heal injuries and relieve chronic pains. Massage therapy and corrective exercises work to alleviate some of those bodily troubles, with the clinic's nutritional counseling and advice services helping patients reach the next level of fitness.
Owner Cassandra Lidin oversees Spirit Path Yoga and Wellness's staff of instructors and therapists as they dole out doses of holistic well-being through educational workshops, body treatments, and assorted yoga classes. Smooth exhalations drift from poised students in the studio’s two yoga practice areas: a central studio, whose playfully green-hued walls and forgiving cork flooring span 1,000 square feet of space, and a more intimate sister studio, where groups of students gather for smaller classes and workshops. After sessions, students change, shower, or reapply makeup to smudged faces drawn on yoga mats in clean, simple changing rooms. Certified practitioners bustle past, moving to reach deep-seated tension and reduce physical discomfort in acupuncture sessions and massages.
Whether it’s to help prepare for an interview, an upcoming wedding, or a date with a scrupulous dermatologist, the aestheticians at Lux Skin and Makeup Studio work to get skin looking its very best with facials, waxing sessions, makeup services, and eyelash extensions. Using doctor-developed Murad products, the team aims to heal epidermal ailments such as redness, wrinkles, and acne with a sextet of facials, which includes a clarifying enzyme acne facial and a vitamin C facial, or a PCA peel. Aestheticians can then add prismatic pop to newly smoothened skin with professional makeup applications performed with high-end products from The Balm, Japonesque, and Julie Hewett. To keep legs and arms smooth, they remove unwanted hair using warm wax and quick removal techniques that minimize discomfort.
As a native Alaskan, the owner of Embody understands the physical toll that the area’s harsh winters and surplus of outdoor activities can take on muscles. The massage center’s services take into account this Alaskan way of life, and its certified therapists cater to their neighbors' pain-relief needs with therapeutic bodywork that targets muscles ailing from cold weather or the heavy burden of layered sweaters. Candles, plants, and rock fountains surround the plush beds in the treatment rooms, where therapists ply muscles with soothing massages that ease medical injuries and quiet stress. Essential oils and footbaths can be added on to any treatment; if you crave further relaxation, take home some of Embody’s collection of locally made teas, lotions, and bath salts.
Anchorage Athletic Club combines years of fitness expertise with the palpable camaraderie of several group exercise classes led by a supportive staff. Solo workouts on cardio and strength equipment can grant the athleticism of a half-man, half-Walter Payton, and three specialized studios host hot-yoga sessions to promote breathwork and the development of a lithe figure. The club augments its body-sculpting services with add-ons such as childcare and tanning beds, and a roster of premium classes hones kung fu jabs and the self-defense maneuvers of krav maga. The Anchorage Athletic Club's staff maintains a friendly attitude while placing a premium on motivating guests in an affable and helpful way.
Having practiced massage therapy for most of her life—including nearly 15 years as a licensed professional—Heather Rasch knows exactly which of her various modalities to use when treating symptoms such as back pain, shoulder tension, or emotional stress. Though her proficiencies include everything from deep-tissue massage to holistic Reiki bodywork, Heather usually advises newcomers to start with her signature Swedish massage. Known for its long, relaxing strokes, this gentle style can help reduce pains from long days at the office or short walks off craggy cliffs. Heather’s specialty services include prenatal massages designed to put mothers-to-be at ease and reflexology sessions that redirect the energy that flows through hands and feet.
From April through September, baseballs and softballs hurl toward awaiting batters in The Cage's eight outdoor batting cages. As batters warm up, they choose between slow pitch or fast pitch options for softball batting and from four speeds for baseball pitching. Each $1 token grants participants 12 chances to practice their bunting, homering, or pausing balls in midair if they believe hard enough. Monday through Friday from noon to 9 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m., players can visit the facility to work on their batting, stock up on baseball apparel or gloves at the facility's shop, or celebrate a birthday with packages that include cage-rental time, a cake, and a gift for the celebrator.
Founded by dancer Judi Sheppard Missett in 1969, Jazzercise and the network that it formed has mushroomed into more than 7,800 instructors teaching 32,000 weekly classes in 32 countries. Much like the opening arguments in any trial, every 60-minute session begins with a gentle warm-up to limber up limbs before jumping into an easy-to-follow aerobic-dance routine. Moves blend elements of jazz dance with kickboxing and the core toning elements of Pilates and yoga. Top 40 hits, jazz, country, funk, rock, blues and hip-hop pluck at brain strings to get bodies energized as sessions transition into a muscle-toning segment performed with dumbbells. Workouts conclude with a stretch and cooldown.
Under the expansive white arc of Tanglewood Lakes Golf Dome, bright lights illume 40 indoor driving stalls split between two levels, as well as a PGA Tour golf simulator. Within each stall, golfers swing their own clubs or a set of complimentary loaners as they aim for targets posted at both short and long ranges. The green beneath the targets doubles as an athletic field, which patrons can reserve for soccer, softball, or grazing placid herds of cocker spaniels.
