Velocity Bootcamp's clients torch calories, whittle waists, and tone muscles during 30-minute boot-camp workouts. Consisting of bodyweight exercises such as suspension training and plyometrics, the small group workouts take place in a supportive, non-intimidating atmosphere. For convenience, the staff schedules up to 20 classes per week, including 6 a.m. classes for early birds who want to get the worm and then sling it several hundred yards. The personal trainers also help clients outside the gym by offering them easy-to-follow nutrition guidelines.
Our club provides a personal feel that alleviates the intimidation and confusion of a typical gym setting. Prestigiously kept, the cleanliness of the facility is only topped by the quality of the trainers and instructors. Our trainers and instructors are fully certified, insured and attentive to all your physical needs.
Voted best physical therapy clinic in Valley Advocate's 2011 Best of The Valley Readers' Poll, Attain Therapy + Fitness trains and conditions members to help burn fat, build muscle, and improve athletic performance. A team of skilled trainers with extensive experience in sports and personal conditioning motivate customers in a well-maintained workout facility, which includes Olympic lifting platforms, squat racks, balance-boosting slide boards, Keiser performance equipment, and life-size Rube Goldberg machines. During the one-hour adult strength and conditioning classes held every weekday morning and evening, plus Saturday mornings, a skilled coach guides pupils through a foam roll massage, static stretches, and dynamic warm-ups to facilitate blood flow and decrease the risk of injury. Participants can turbocharge metabolism with boot-camp-style circuit training, which, like a boulder-toting ballet, mixes energetic aerobic movement with power-based exertion.
