Ladies Workout Express owner Becky Tainter tones the bodies of fitness-conscious women with a schedule of group classes for all skill levels. Pilates classes target students' cores with a series of smoothly controlled exercises that hone muscles without adding bulk, and yoga lengthens limbs with gracefully sustained poses. Zumba attendees master dance-inspired steps while speakers pulse with Latin rhythms, and spin students churn their legs through a 55-minute cardio regimen that burns more calories than a campfire full of melting s'mores. Though Ladies Workout Express's instructors ask visitors to bring water and towels with them, the classes will provide any necessary equipment.
LOA Fitness for Women
For members of LOA Fitness for Women, the word support means more than having a reliable spotter at your bench. It's a keystone of the women-only gym, where ladies of all fitness levels can exercise and socialize in the presence of a community-oriented staff. Formerly Ladies Workout Express, founder Rebecca Tainter established LOA Fitness for Women to provide a workout space that was both physically and emotionally empowering, and to that end, her instructors lead motivational group classes in Zumba, yoga, and general fitness away from men and bodybuilding kangaroos.
Personal trainers also meet with clients for one-on-one sessions, drawing from several disciplines—including Pilates and medicine-ball workouts—to craft highly customized routines. They even plan specialized pre- and post-natal regimens, as well as workouts for women who have recently undergone cosmetic surgery. For visitors with kids, an onsite childcare service entertains youngsters—a far safer alternative to letting them build barbell forts on the gym floor.
