When people hear the phrase "water aerobics," they might envision a dull scene of swimmers lifting buoyant weights and doing the "YMCA" at sloth speed. At Progress Fitness & Aquatic Centre, however, the 25-metre pool acts as a stage for nine high-intensity classes, in which students battle water's relentless resistance. Students can slip into suspension belts to rehearse deep-water running, or groove to swing-dance tunes as they twirl against the H2O molecules. The gym embraces the entertainment afforded by variety outside of the pool as well—its group studio hosts workouts that range from cardio-kickboxing drills to Hatha yoga stretches. In the equipment area, cycles, treadmills, and rowers whir beneath mounted televisions and free weights challenge muscles at squat racks and benches.
The centre's personal trainers and veteran swim coaches
take on clients of all ages and abilities. They teach Red Cross swimming lessons for children—who progress from AquaTots to AquaQuest and, finally, AquaLawSchool—and craft custom programs for adults. An on-site massage therapist and a travel agent endorse relaxation between exercise bouts.
Already a trained yoga instructor, Erin Ball’s transformation into an aerial-silk tycoon began when she discovered circus performance at the Kingston Buskers festival in 2007, as mentioned by the Whig-Standard. She instantly fell in love with the airborne art form, and immediately enrolled in circus courses all across Canada and the United States. Now, Erin shares her passion for acrobatics at Twisted, a circus school that specializes in HoopDance, flexibility for aerialists, and Pilates.
Today, within the Loyalist Gymnastics Club, Erin works alongside skilled fitness and aerial instructors. The staff collectively teaches small groups of no more than 15 people how to flip, twirl, and spin using aerial silks, static trapezes, and aerial hammocks. Students are never pushed past their limits, and are encouraged to explore at their own pace as they learn each move elevated above precisely placed crash mats and squishy, accommodating clowns.
This kind of care and consideration has gained Erin praise from her patrons as well as the media, including the Kingston East News which said, "It's safe to say that Erin is comfortable with and well qualified to guide you in your aerial yoga practice."
Dr. Paul Given and Dr. Sheldon Cook of King's Town Chiropractic employ spine-tuning savvy to help calibrate off-kilter physiques with chiropractic and acupuncture treatments. Sessions kick off with a consultation that allows patients to point out aches and pains, followed by a thermal scan to detect misaligned spines and spot frayed nervous systems. Like a radiographic paparazzo, an x-ray stealthily captures images of eye-eluding bones to help the chiropractors identify wayward discs intent on imitating Pangaea's drift. Once bodyscapes have been thoroughly scrutinized, a report detailing the exam's findings is whipped up along with a plan for treatment designed to help alleviate individual ailments including headaches and sciatica. Chiropractic adjustments then unsnarl tangled spines, gently coaxing errant vertebrae back into place to help restore suppleness to over-taxed dorsal planes. Alternatively, acupuncture treatments utilize strategically placed needles to deflate tension and imbue bodies with a sense of balance and tranquility. Patients emerge from sessions feeling as relaxed and agile as a cheetah raking a zen garden.
Omega Fit Club's amenities evoke scenes from science fiction movies. The facility is lined with Technogym cardio and strength equipment, and a futuristic Kinesis wall challenges fitness seekers with more than 250 distinct exercises centred around working against gravity's resistance.
For all its high-tech toys, however, the gym is neither cold nor robotic—its team of trainers support members as they sweat through group exercise classes and one-on-one sessions. Members can also find relaxation inside an infrared sauna or on a hydrotherapy bed, which buoys physiques on a dry membrane while water jets stamp out muscular knots.
Candles, plants, and flowing curtains channel a warm, relaxing vibe in Samatva Yoga's custom-built studios, where students of all skill levels practice ancient poses with a modern twist. To expose pupils to a range of yogic styles, more than a dozen seasoned instructors build an interdisciplinary class lineup that fosters experimentation and self-growth. The studio's signature classes stem from classical traditions such as Hatha and Ashtanga, whose poses and breathing exercises cultivate strength, flexibility, and focus. Many sessions take place in muscle-loosening 105-degree temperatures, which help pores eject body-bound impurities and books on tape lodged in the subconscious. In addition to teaching backbends and arm stands to groups, staffers guide individuals through assisted poses during Thai massages and dissolve energy blockages with reiki treatments. At the downtown Kingston location, a sauna invites students to unwind and detoxify after they stretch and balance in classes and workshops.
Sacred Journeys Healing Arts Centre's Cheryl Hiebert, M.Div. believes all humans have the potential to lead empowered and healthy lives by looking inward. In addition to doling out wellness tips on television, the lifelong holistic coach is certified as a practitioner of a variety of energy-based modalities, including Usui and Karuna reiki, Emotional Freedom Technique, and angel therapy. Her clients report to Sacred Journeys for both workshops and one-on-one sessions, seeking the clarity and guidance she has gained working with such spiritual heavyweights as Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, and Jiminy Cricket.
In addition to supporting the lowered stress and well-being of clients, the Centre directs energy toward charitable causes such as Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre, Girls Inc.—an organization dedicated to the empowerment of young women—and Sheba's Haven Rescue, which rescues palliative-care dogs and teaches them to bark meditative mantras.
At Pro Dojos, certified martial-arts experts lead students of all ages and skill levels through a variety of pugilistic disciplines. Each location is independently owned, so the martial-arts styles may vary, but many offer karate, tae kwon do, kick-boxing, aikido, and jujitsu classes. The instructors elucidate the noble combat arts to kiddos as young as 4 years old, helping them build strength and motor skills while instilling the values of self-confidence. Teen classes focus on honing discipline and treating yourself and others with respect, and adult classes reinforce cardiovascular conditioning, strength, balance, and coordination. The instructors also lead classes for the whole family, allowing them to bond as a unit, which could possibly lead to starring in a hit sitcom about a crime-fighting family who takes down comical villains in their idyllic suburban neighborhood.
Using holistic health techniques in a community setting, Pauline Vaughan, D.Ac. treats a broad range of ailments at budget-friendly prices at Limestone Community Acupuncture. Needling sessions occur in a calming community room, where patients relax together in their own recliners and acupuncturists insert fine, sterile pins into specific points on the body in an effort to trigger healing effects. Therapists may also target their needle placement to ease stress or insomnia, alleviate allergy symptoms, or promote fertility. The communal environment not only helps the clinic offer services at low prices, but the collective stillness enhances the sense of well-being and tranquility, similar to group meditation and gardens full of human statues.
Viola's European Esthetics Studio chases a single, simple mission—to make clients feel better. With a 20-year industry veteran and staff beautician Violetta Dudek at its helm, the studio performs an extensive list of rejuvenating services, including deep-cleansing facials, Japanese manicures, eyelash extensions, and electrolysis. Each begins with a consultation in order to tailor treatment to the client's needs, and the studio can even use a high-resolution computer skin analyzer to pinpoint collagen quality and check skin for spyware. Electrolysis sessions vary in duration based on the client's needs, with a single session lasting a minimum of 10 minutes.
S.M.A. Karate's owners, Robert and Michelle Patry, brandish black belts in shotokan-ryu and goju-ryu karate in addition to gold trophies gleaned from competitions around the world. Inside the duo’s 3,000-square-foot dojo, they help students of all skill levels build strength, focus, and balance through martial-arts instruction and personal training.
Ever-changing workouts keep sessions as fresh as a tuxedo made of dryer sheets as warriors amp up endurance and flexibility. In addition to teaching karate and kung-fu to adults and kids, instructors infuse the class schedule with other calorie-torching opportunities, such as kickboxing routines and Zumba dance parties.
In an intimate space with soothing hues and wood floors, Momentum Pilates Studio reinforces cores and liberates locked-up muscles with mat- and machine-based movements. Experienced instructors lead student groups through a bundle of 55-minute, classical Pilates mat classes, from beginner to advanced and multi-level, capitalizing on bodyweight resistance. Pilates boot camp ensures physiques are armed with toned, sleek strength before big events, and Pilates classes with equipment harness the power of reformers and ped-o-pulls, enhancing limb limberness and strength built from the innermost musculature to the outermost candy-coated shell. Pilates-on-the-ball classes are a pleasant alternative to neurotic paramours for adding challenging instability to routines, and students can mix it up yet further with a yoga-fusion class for body awareness, breath work, and mind-body confluence.
Today, it's undeniable: Jazzercise is a worldwide empire, spanning more than 1,800 locations and 32,000 weekly classes across the globe. It's also hip; gone are the leotards and legwarmers of the 1980s, replaced with a high-intensity blend of cardio, strength training, kickboxing and power yoga performed to hits by chart-toppers from Shakira to Justin Timberlake. The class formats, which vary according to different toning goals, are just as diverse as the program's move set, with recent additions such as Fusion, Core, and Strike broadening the workouts' variety and application. Instructors cultivate a noncompetitive atmosphere where all exercisers—with the exception of those marked as cursed by jazz-hand palm readers—are welcome regardless of age, build, or fitness background. This sense of community keeps Jazzercise devotees coming back, but so too do the results; benefits ranging from weight loss and boosted core strength to increased flexibility and stress relief.
Jazzercise's continued success can be traced to the innovation of its founder, Judi Sheppard Missett. While teaching jazz dance in the 1960s, she
decided to step away from tradition by offering an experimental class that allowed her students to simply dance without the judgment of mirrors or the constraints of rigid technique. Little
did she know that this “just for fun” class was the prototype for what would become the Jazzercise sensation.
Life Yoga's passionate instructors share their expertise in a 1,200-square-foot studio with spacious, spa-inspired shower rooms and a practice space embellished with handmade fabric wallpaper. Students burn calories and release mental stress in small classes with helpful one-on-one attention: gentle Restorative Yoga, energizing Vinyasa Flow, and Hatha Fundamentals are just a few options.
