Gyms provide people with all of the equipment and guidance that they need to pursue their individual fitness goals. AFC Fitness is more than a gym though. Instead, the centers provide their members with a comprehensive range of services intended to help people not only get in better shape, but also begin living healthier lifestyles in general. This broad approach is apparent throughout the centers' massive selection of group fitness classes, which includes everything from aerial yoga and Pilates to CrossFit workouts and high-intensity water aerobics.
Personal trainers are also on hand to lend their expertise and coaches offer sports-specific training that covers the fundamentals of baseball or tennis. However, the focus isn't limited to guided workouts and fitness classes. AFC Fitness's physical therapists can help people gradually recover from the mobility-limiting effects of injury or surgery and the registered dietitians provide customized consultations that explain the nutritional value of fresh produce compared to plastic fruit.
When Verge Athletics opened, there was nothing quite like it in the area. In the years since, it's both introduced CrossFit to the larger community and built up a strong, committed community of its own.

On any given day, Verge coaches lead classes through high intensity workouts that focus on mastering functional gymnastic, cardio, and weightlifting movements. Using these movements and an assortment of equipment, regular bouts of high-intensity exercise tone complete physiques.
When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. Adele Fridman, founder of MetaBody, created a real-life version of that ticket with her MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.
The word CrossFit may conjure up thoughts of muscle-bound people showing up to a warehouse-style gym, performing a series of impressive fitness feats, and then going home. Not so at CrossFit Prime. Here, the coaches ease into every workout. They begin each 60-minute class with warm-ups and a training session where everyone learns the proper lifting techniques for that particular day's exercises. Then, as required by law, the fun starts. Depending on the day's workout, exercisers complete functional exercises such as pull-ups, squats, and dead lifts?and quickly. Due to the exercises' functional-movement basis, they can be scaled for newcomers and regulars alike.
The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
we are not your average gym. you won't find shiny equipment, mirrors, or dry wall for that matter. you will find a raw space filled with kettlebells, medicine balls, tires, rings, ropes, pull-up bars, rowers etc. items that will push you to your limits to achieve greatness. above all, you will find a family of support.
