Led by fitness coordinator Patricia Moore, Performance Physical Therapy offers a full schedule of bootcamps and fitness classes. Body Blast Bootcamp builds strength and increases energy during 30-minute workouts, while Zumba courses burn calories for students of all ages and abilities. In addition to classes designed for the elderly and those with disabilities, Performance Physical Therapy offers nutrition programs and workplace wellness programs.
Curves encourages women to take the reins of their physical health with positive, supportive fitness classes and gym sessions. Pioneering the circuit-training regimen, the gym's trainers crafted a 30-minute workout that accommodates women of all fitness levels with a combination of strength training and cardiovascular exercises. For maximum benefit, workout sessions operate in tandem with the trainers' encyclopedic knowledge of diets, nutrition, and gravity.
The press certainly likes California Family Fitness, granting the exercise venue such awards as a top spot on KCRA-3's 2012 A-List and Sacramento News and Review's Best of Sacramento 2012 Award. The press, however, isn't the top priority for the gym's staff; they believe that, to quote their about CFF page, “awards don't greet you at the door.” Instead, they depend upon their dedicated staffers at the front desk, chaperones at the Kidz Club play zone, and personal trainers to make families of clients feel at home. Certified personal trainers take aspiring exercisers of all ages through regimens that make use of the 16 available locations' ample workout machinery. Seasoned instructors, meanwhile, hold group fitness classes, free with a membership, fostering community as they incinerate calories during high-energy Zumba, step aerobics, Turbo Kick, and Hip Hop Hustle. Nine of the locations boast pools that host swim lessons taught by certified water-safety instructors.
While hitting the gym, parents can drop wee ones at childcare havens lined with playgrounds and age-appropriate investment manuals. After breaking a sweat on the exercise floor, clients can also shed excess body moisture in saunas and tanning beds.
At FitRanX, intimidation simply isn't a factor when it comes to exercise. That's because guests advance through an eight-level system that tailors workouts to each individual's fitness level. Each rank challenges gym-goers with concrete goals—within their ability—to help them ascend to the next level, making for balanced, full-body workouts with clear paths forward.
Led by pole fitness competition judge and extensively accredited instructor Valerie Rush, Vertical Fitness Studio helps students build core muscles and self-confidence with acrobatic routines. Each trainer draws from a wealth of certifications and experiences, like Valerie, the owner, who is one of the only nationally certified pole-fitness instructors in the greater Sacramento area. Outstretched hands trace spiraling swirls around aerial hoops, and athletic displays of leg and core strength around poles make participants feel both sexy and healthy. In front of floor-to-ceiling mirrors, the trainers tailor lessons by bestowing as much one-on-one instruction as possible and as few nicknames based on unfortunate middle-school haircuts as possible.
Koko FitClub Smartraining system, which debuted in Entrepreneur magazine's 33rd annual Franchise 500 rankings, gives patrons personalized control over their own fitness with 30-minute custom workouts at automated stations. Each person's tailored regimen begins with a body-composition test, which helps trainers to build a program based on weight loss, toning, or whale-wrestling goals. Staff members then load workout plans onto the client's Koko key, which plugs into Smartraining machines. The workout equipment greets guests by name and instructions steer limbs through a medley of strength and cardio maneuvers, all of which take place at a single station. Because the system stores each visitor's progress, workouts adapt daily to keep muscle groups from starting a fight club out of boredom. A personal website tracks fitness data for at-home viewing.
