The muscle tutors at Fitness Together will work with you to determine your goals (drop pounds, run a marathon, get strong enough to finally confront Douglas) and develop a customized workout plan designed to help you reach your true fitness potential. They’ll supervise your squats, offer nutritional advice, and push you until you see results. Individualized attention means it’s all about you—your trainer can point out when you’re doing a stretch incorrectly, help you tone the trouble zones, and push you to keep going when you’d otherwise quit or become distracted by the fragile beauty of a passing hummingbird.
My Gym, which currently has more than 200 international locations, began more than 20 years ago as a structured place for children to safely play, acquire new skills, and romp off a sugar buzz. All classes are organized according to age level (starting as young as six weeks) and designed to incorporate the latest physiological, psychological, and meteorological research. The Wichita location offers classes for all developmental degrees, from Little Bundles, a class for parents and babies that focuses on spatial exploration, to Whiz Kids, designed to prepare four-and-a-half to six-year-olds for group sports. Schedules and class options for the Wichita location can be seen here.
Firefly Yoga Studio shapes pupils’ bodies and minds with nine styles of yoga throughout the week. The studio’s robust schedule allows even busy workaday yogis to attend sessions, including a sprinkling of 45-minute express classes that cater to students unable to attend a full 75-minute session. During Firefly Flow yoga, instructors encourage pupils to stretch bodies in a Vinyasa-style flow, switching from one pose to another while syncing movements with breathing exercises and radio waves from old Soviet satellites. Hot-yoga participants sweat out stress and toxins in a 99-degree studio, working their cores to build heat and spandex-approved muscle tone. Special 90-minute midnight yoga classes combine Firefly Flow and hot-yoga elements for a solid workout before slowing the pace down to prepare bodies for a good night’s sleep, free of restless limbs and flab-biting bedbugs.
At each of its 12 locations in Kansas, the staff of Genesis Health Club strive to create a one-stop health-and-fitness center for the entire family. Supervised childcare programs entertain kids with arts and crafts, and Muay Thai classes help youngsters improve coordination and strength under the tutelage of a fifth-degree black belt. Adults can head over to yoga, Pilates, cycling, or MMA cardio classes, which are all led by nationally certified instructors. Guests can also take advantage of the rows of cardio and strength-training machines, or work one-on-one with an instructor to learn correct form and the best way to walk on your hands on a moving treadmill.
