While most gyms let loose their clients onto complicated equipment without preparation, like a gladiator facing off against a leg press, FitWomen’s staff shows its members the ropes during complimentary equipment orientations and group-training sessions. After a solo workout or a group Zumba class, ladies can retire to a locker room with private showers.
You won’t find many people grunting their way through solo workouts at The Aerobics and Fitness Studio, where invigorating group fitness classes are the focus. The studio’s instructors build their all-day fitness schedule around two popular Les Mills classes: BodyPump, which tones muscles with strength training, and BodyStep, which charges up aerobic movements with energizing music. Aside from these two pillars, the studio offers its members the chance to shimmy, shake, and stretch through Zumba dance workouts and meditative yoga poses. As they work through these and other classes, students can check their form in the studio’s wall-to-wall mirror or attempt to psyche out their reflection in the gleaming hardwood floor.
There is, however, more to The Aerobics and Fitness Studio than group fitness classes. The studio’s team of certified trainers helps members climb past fitness plateaus during personal training sessions and teaches valuable lessons in safety during CPR and AED training classes.
We are Western Massachusetts's premiere commercial strength and conditioning facility. We train and teach CrossFit--running, rowing, gymnastics, calisthenics, power lifting and Olympic weightlifting, executed at high intensity--to create athletes of unparalleled fitness.
Climbers cling to carefully placed hand grips, strategizing their way up the side of the rock-like cliff. They have come to conquer the indoor mountains rising up inside Central Rock Gym's four indoor facilities, which are spread throughout New England. At each, experts guide novice climbers through introductory classes or supervise more seasoned members scaling the walls' highest heights.
Memberships unlock access to all four facilities, gear for the first month, and the use of exercise equipment and weights. In addition to climbing and conditioning, members can also take advantage of fitness classes such as yoga and Pilates. Each gym also welcomes non-members, whether they're trying things out with a day pass or interested in events including birthday parties, summer camps, and corporate team-building events.
Attentive to the diverse needs of muscles and their masters, The Pilates Center of Western Massachusetts' certified instructors shape up shapeless cores and physiques. Pilates is a low-impact total-body discipline that uses resistance, stretching, mat work, and controlled breathing patterns to make the body looser, lither, and healthier. Individual sessions will ensure a comfortable and productive workout and are perfect for customers who are unfamiliar with Pilates, in need of personal motivation, or possess unique structural challenges, such as cement limbs. Pilates classes can help anyone improve whole-body health, and mat-only, apparatus, and anti-gravity based methods are available for students of all experience levels.
The Ananda Center sends bodies floating along a river of centeredness and wellness through an eclectic selection of yoga and fitness classes. The experienced instructors lead classes of various intensities and forms of yoga, from beginner classes to vigorous Vinyasa, dispensing mind-body harmony to both veteran melody-makers and cacophonous upstarts.
