The LED lights dim, and a driving rhythm begins to pound through the professional-grade sound system. An instructor mounts a Star Trac Spinner NXT cycle—the same model all the students are riding—and begins to call out instructions. The class uses the bikes' advanced mechanics to simulate uphill climbs and smooth straightaways. Such is the scene during every class at InMotion Cycling Studio. Afterward, staff members provide towel service or show visitors to the water cooler, where they can replenish a depleted water bottle or attempt to engage strangers in office small talk.
A team of experienced athletes and certified strength-and-conditioning specialists work to help athletes and regular exercisers reach a higher level of fitness. Inside a hybrid training facility with a clean locker room and a smoothie bar, instructors lead metabolic conditioning workouts, spinning classes, and mobility and recovery sessions. Training focuses on increasing speed, agility, and coordination while also teaching stabilization techniques that help prevent injuries.
The trainers at Forever Health and Fitness Center know that walking into a gym and getting started is an intimidating prospect. That's why they offer free, no-obligation consultations, in which they discuss goals and how the individual can achieve them. Once they're sufficiently prepared and motivated, exercisers have a huge range of equipment and activities to choose from. Basketball, racquetball, and street hockey occupy the competitive, while indoor cycling and classes like Zumba, yoga, and kickboxing have an instructor to guide participants.
After more than 20 years spent in the fitness industry, Joshua Fleming founded Victory Fit Camp. His formula relies on physical and mental training that he learned in the US Marine Corps as well as nutritional advice from licensed experts. Today, each Victory Fit boot-camp session is led by an experienced coach, who walks clients of all fitness levels through indoor workouts or outdoor obstacle courses of ropes, foam pits, and trampolines.
Inside Athletic Evolution, a 30,000-square-foot sports complex, seasoned trainers craft fun, customizable workouts from functional movements designed to build strength, stamina, and flexibility. Filled with running, barbell drills, and bodyweight exercises, each small-group class draws inspiration from Olympic events such as track and field, naval warfare, gymnastics, and weightlifting. Abs and arms ripple as students wield kettlebells and climb 25-foot ropes that dangle from the ceiling, and the facility's 65 yards of indoor turf set the stage for sprints, prowler pushes, and impromptu lawnmower races.
