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.
Across Central Rock Climbing Center's 16,500 square feet of simulated stonescapes, budding mountaineers strategize courses between crags and crevices during one- or three-day climbing excursions. Clients don the provided harnesses, climbing shoes, and spider-sense before building a foundation of rope-control skills and proper climbing etiquette during 45-minute beginner's belaying classes. For the remainder of the day, clients are given free rein of the vast and undulating wall, which is strewn with overhangs, bulges, and realistic rock features designed to challenge climbers of all skill levels.
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 flexibility mavens at the Ananda Center tone muscles and tune minds, bringing bodies and souls into harmonious alignment. Bend, stretch, dance, or meditate in an array of yoga and fitness classes designed to limber up limbs while fostering overall health and well-being. Form & Flow Yoga challenges students to hold poses for long stretches, and Gentle Yoga coddles fitness seekers who have recently undergone surgery, given birth, or lost a twisting competition with a pretzel. Patrons strengthen cores in the traditional low-impact Pilates course, or invite the rest of the muscular structure to the party in Fitlates. After calming minds in Meditation, set your body in motion with high-energy, calorie-burning classes such as Zumba, Sun/Fire Cardio Sculpt, Cardio-Kickbox MMA, and Extreme Mahjong. Check the schedule for class times and details.
Since 1998, Universal Health & Fitness has stood by its name, welcoming guests from all walks of life to a venue where "every body fits in." The handicap-accessible gym covers aspirations from muscle toning to rehabilitation with rows of equipment, certified personal trainers, and programming for all ages. Group classes encourage social bonding between Pilates stretches and Zumba twirls, and chiropractic and massage services realign spines with deft hands rather than scaring them straight with urban legends about the babysitter with bad posture. A team of convivial staff members oversees each amenity, sharing smiles with adult visitors and the youngsters in the childcare center.
