Curves houses a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and cope with arthritis. Instead of guests fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches each exerciser's abilities during their 30-minute workouts. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, machines use push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
The Greater Green Bay YMCA keeps community members in peak cow-tossing condition with a staggering selection of fitness, sporting, and outreach programs. During the unlimited, month-long training montage, members sculpt their physiques with the Y's extensive facilities, including state-of-the-art cardiovascular and strength training equipment, group fitness classes, open and family gyms, and more. Exercisers can pump up their blood pump with the cardio theater entertainment system, bulk up atrophied gills in the member's pool, or donate sweat during fast-paced bouts of basketball or racquetball.
Jim's education wing boasts an impressive stable of professional, gifted instructors, including three-time Grammy nominee, Todd Buffa, who can prep your pipes for pitch-perfect performance as a personal voice instructor. Learn the ins and outs of tonality and pitch from Todd, who can talk about opening for Miles Davis or the night he and Michael Bolton found a Siberian tiger in their hotel room. Aspiring guitar-shredders and piano-pounders can also become proficient in scales, chords, and the melodic basics of their instruments. Jim's recommends bringing your own vocal chords, but it will provide guitars or pianos to instrument-less students during lessons. Lessons are scheduled based upon availability and demand, so prospective pupils should call ahead to reserve a spot.
In 1976, educator, musician, and kinesiologist Robin Wes opened The Little Gym based on his new take on physical education. His curriculum emphasized motivating children to achieve instead of pressuring them to win. As a result, The Little Gym became a noncompetitive, positive, nurturing environment where young ones could develop physically, socially, emotionally, and intellectually. Since then, The Little Gyms have sprouted up across the country. The programs and classes aim to help kids develop skills such as rhythm and coordination, and kids camps during winter, spring, and summer breaks prevent children from creating finger paintings that express the existential ennui they feel when school is out of session.
