Fitness classes are scheduled Monday through Saturday, helping students supplement everyday activities—such as walking the dog and vacuuming the cats—with boot-camp-style group training, Pilates exercises, and Bang That Core sessions. Abs ripple and biceps bulge during one-hour kettlebell classes, which involve swinging and lifting a cannonball-shaped weight with an easy-to-grip handle. Like the best geometry lectures, Zumba classes incorporate Latin-inspired dance moves and rhythmic world music to alter shapes and shimmy away stress.
True Balance Studio
Ali True has been an All-American lacrosse goalie, trained Dolph Lundgren, earned a degree in kinesiology, and received Baltimore magazine’s 2009 Best Personal Trainer award. No amount of accolades, however, can replace her passion for educating and training others to lead healthy, fitness-friendly lives. To this end, she left behind her days of celebrity-sculpting to open True Balance Studio, a facility that welcomes students of all levels of health and fame.
Neat rows of black kettlebells sit in front of mirrored walls until one-hour classes fill the gym with grunts of effort and the whistles of kettlebells about to boil over. Standard strength machines sit beside flexibility-boosting climbing frames or gymnastics-style rings suspended from the ceiling. Oscillating between the classrooms and the gym floor, Ali and her trainers coach their clients on cardio equipment, offer nutritional advice, or coax one last rep from straining muscles.
“I have gotten into the best shape of my life thanks to True Balance Studio!”
“Studio looks amateur but the workout was effective. Class was like group personal training. Got some tips and pointers I wouldn't get in larger classes.”
