At CrossFit Silos, trainers trade the flatscreen TVs and saunas found in most sterile globo-gyms for kettlebells, pull-up bars, and barbells, helping members get into strong, sleek shape with high-powered strength and conditioning workouts. The certified CrossFit coaches hail from a wide variety of health and fitness backgrounds, from a rugged expedition racing enthusiast to a certified Doctor of Chiropractic. Armed with the positive motivation and know-how of these committed coaches––as well as the support of a team of like-minded classmates––clients push their bodies to the limit with daily-changing, high-intensity workouts, otherwise known as WODs (or workouts of the day). These short bursts of varied activity fit easily into any work schedule, and are paired with supplemental nutritional guidance to ensure the body burns fat efficiently and maximizes its flexing potential.
Tim Lester spent eight years as a professional football player. During that time, he bowled over defenders and helped some of the league's best running backs keep an eye out for pot holes as they ran downfield, but his most supportive work happened during his long history of community outreach?a duty he's carried into retirement. That's especially evident in Tim's participation with NFL Play 60, a nationwide movement designed to get kids active for at least an hour everyday.
At NFL Play 60 summer camp, coach Tim leads groups of youngsters through a full schedule of drills and games. Each day begins with roll call and warm-ups, followed by speed and agility exercises and offensive and defensive practice that weave life skills such as sportsmanship and teamwork into the physical activities. At the end of the week-long camp, campers head home with T-shirts and Play 60 certificates to hang next to the PhD from last summer's week of graduate school.

Anytime Fitness, which boasts 2,245 clubs in North America, makes it easier for average folks to etch out time for exercise by doing one simple thing: staying open for members 24 hours a day for 365 days a year. As fit seekers challenge themselves on cardio and strength machines by brands such as Precor and Life Fitness and hoist free weights in clean, well-stocked facilities, security monitoring ensures they’re safe and producing enough sweat to meet official government standards. Members can also ramp up their exercise regimens with the help of Anytime Fitness’s staff of personal trainers, who demonstrate moves and sling motivating tips. After workouts, guests can shower in the private restrooms or bop into one of the onsite tanning booths.
Peace, Love, and Unity: these are the pillars upon which this studio stands. Designed as an alternative to big, impersonal gyms, the family-owned-and-operated center fosters fun and mind-body-spirit harmony alongside fitness. A women-oriented self-defense class, Divas in Defense, adds an empowering edge to a class catalog that includes yoga, Pilates, and Zumba. Those seeking positive inner health may consult with a life coach or practice mediation. Soothing massage therapy and reflexology keep bodies from posing as bread dough to receive a proper kneading.
