How many times have you wound up to whack a golf ball only to completely miss because your rotational mobility isn't up to par? If you answered "often," get today's Groupon, a 50-minute one-on-one Pilates or GYROTONIC session from CORE for $37 (51% off a $75 value). While most people think about Pilates in the broader sense of improved fitness and flexibility, CORE knows that both Pilates and GYROTONIC can be applied to improve your golf game; GYROTONIC improves the range of motion in your swing and Pilates helps improve balance and strengthen core muscles.
Corey Cutter has always loved working out, be it making fitness videos with her childhood friends or sweating it out in aerobics class as an adult. But it was her mother’s three-decade career as a fitness professional that inspired her to open her current fitness studio, Cre8fit, after 15 years of practicing law.
From this boutique studio, tucked within Riverview Village Shopping Center, Corey shares her passion for healthy living by offering clients the latest in group fitness classes. During Real Ryder sessions, students cycle on technologically advanced machines that mimic real outdoor bikes. CrossCore 180 classes use pulleys and the student's own body weight to strengthen and tone muscles. Corey also works alongside six other instructors, each providing ample attention by making modifications for beginners.
The trainers at Body Design University have developed a scientifically based program to help people battle excess weight and lead fuller, healthier lives. They incorporate both resistance and cardio training into each routine, offering encouragement and tips on how to perform each exercise safely. In addition to maintaining a strong focus on fitness and nutrition, they help clients consider which multivitamins, supplements, or radioactive serums from outer space might be most helpful as they get into prime physical shape. Body Design University also offers hands-on personal-training-certification courses that prepare students for the American Council on Exercise (ACE) certification exam.
Allison Buckley doesn't just want to transform her clients' abs and glutes. At Zoe Fitness, she aims to transform every aspect of their lives by helping them live cleanly, which she believes improves mental, spiritual, and physical states.
Her services include boot camps, one-on-one, two-on-one, and small group training, dance-based Zoe Elevation classes, and Piloxing sessions, which blend Pilates and boxing exercises. The Piloxing workouts also incorporate elements of dance, much like a discussion of Macbeth led by a cool English teacher.
One’s a former college athlete. One’s an experienced yogi. One’s a former stay-at-home mom who simply refused to stay overweight any longer. Though they all come from different backgrounds, Oni Fitness Studio’s trainers share one important trait: the desire to stay fit using time-tested exercises. Through personal instruction and group classes in yoga, Pilates, and TRX suspension training, they share their dedication with students, building strong bodies while maintaining balance between body and mind. Stacked flagstone accent walls, hardwood floors, and creamy paint tones run throughout the studio, setting a comfortable and secluded scene in which students can release tension brought on by everyday tasks including evening commutes or morning jousts with the paperboy.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
