As a mother herself, certified fitness instructor Meghan understands the challenges new moms face in finding time to workout. Her Baby Boot Camp franchise invites mothers and their moppets to engage in cardiovascular workouts without leaving each others' side. During the Camp's signature stroller fit classes, mothers-to-be as well as recovering new moms undergo strength and cardio drills.
The Hit Fit Club's team of coaches have fused kickboxing and MMA into a calorie-torching circuit-training workout. The workout lasts just 30 minutes, but its short duration isn't the only convenient thing about it. A new circuit starts at the gym every two to three minutes, so it fits into busy schedules much easier than the typical 5:37 p.m. jog.
Unlike shady sports scalpers, this deal gives you full and legitimate access to The Sports Clubs, including group fitness classes, all workout equipment, and locker-room amenities, as well as a one-on-one personal-training session. The Sports Clubs offers 20+ fitness classes with flexible schedules, including Yoga, Pilates, Yogalates, Salsa, Core Mania, and Cardio Jam. Try the nationally renowned Turbo Kick, an effective cardiovascular class that can burn up to 1,000 calories per hour while you kick and punch imaginary coworkers to a thinner waistline. If you’re training for the annual grocery-line dance off, sculpt and tone your body with Zumba, a fusion dance class that combines fast and slow Latin dance steps. Fitness beginners can use their personal-training session to kick start their 30 days with professional muscle knowledge and injury-prevention techniques, while professional boulder throwers can use theirs to target specific areas without endangering fellow gym rats with heavy projectiles.
The strong, flexible backbone of Total Body Wellness is its team of nationally certified instructors that ensures a supportive, unintimidating atmosphere.

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were accidentally installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circle of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use body weight and fitness levels to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
Whether the forecast calls for rain or not, you can expect there to be muddy conditions at the Mud and Bud Run. The sloppy 5K course features muddy paths and 21 obstacles, including beams, trenches, and nets. Upon completing the grueling gamut, which is designed for adults, runners can retreat to the festival for live music, food, and activities. Youngsters who want to race can sign up for the 1K race on the following day. Proceeds from all of the events—the 5K, 1K, and festival—benefit local charities.
