Unlike bigger gyms where most people workout alone, Dominate Your Life Fitness pairs members with coaches to keep them on track. These trainers ensure that guests use the correct form to prevent injuries when lifting weights and swinging kettlebells during a litany of ever-changing workouts. Routines and classes are steeped in functional fitness movements, such as jumping on plyometric boxes and flipping oversized tires, that mimic everyday movements. Classes run six days a week, and one-on-one training is available by appointment.
Pilates With Nadine's eponymous instructor leads classes that focus on posture and flexibility, building cores to create healthy, sturdy bodies. By using stretching and strength exercises during private and group lessons, Nadine improves her clients' breathing techniques and range of motion. She's been a certified mat instructor since 2005, and her participation in continuing education allows her to keep up to date on Pilates routines without calling every teacher of Pilates in the world every single day.
When practiced regularly, yoga can help restore balance, strengthen core muscles, tone limbs, and de-stress practitioners. Add heat and a boost in flexibility and a flushing out of toxins flies to the top of the list. At Younique Yoga, members bask in all of these benefits during heated Vinyasa yoga classes. In rooms set between 98 and 108 degrees, students flow through poses coupled with breathing exercises, helping them achieve deeper stretches and improved relaxation.
Coba Yoga takes its name from an ancient Mexican city, the ruins of which stand roughly 40 kilometers from the Caribbean ocean. Lili Avery, the Mexican-born owner of the studio, chose the name to honor her strong connection to her heritage, which brings her a sense of inner peace. During yoga sessions, she and her team of teachers help students find their own inner peace, wherever it might lie. While guests of all levels partake in yoga or opt for a massage, kids are looked after in childcare, which is free for ongoing members, or in children's yoga classes.
Upbeat music and a lively party atmosphere aren't the only things that make Shore Fit Club a family-friendly environment. Its cadre of fitness classes for students of all ages, such as Zumba for kids, suspension training, and yoga, don't tell the whole story, either. What really demonstrates the fitness facility's devotion to families is how it looks after little ones so that busy parents can focus on burning as many calories and sacrificial donuts as possible.
The family-owned gym has rows of stationary bikes, ellipticals, and weight machines, but CIRIUS Fitness also makes room for the Cross Training Zone. This space, which extends into the parking lot during warmer months, looks nothing like a standard gym. Tires, battling ropes, medicine balls, punching bags?they all play a part in the high-intensity workout. Instead of repetitive pounding on the treadmill or lifts at a weight machine, cross-training constantly switches up fitness routines with the swing of a sledgehammer or thrust of a kettlebell, which keeps both muscles and minds engaged. For other dynamic workouts, guests can try one of the gym's other fitness classes, such as Zumba, yoga, or mixed martial arts.
