Fitness Rx's team of instructors deploys to dozens of locations throughout southeastern Michigan to lead a staggering array of fitness classes. Whether they're guiding groups through kickboxing's strikes, yoga poses, or Pilates’ core-strengthening moves, they draw on their diverse backgrounds, years of experience, and enthusiasm. Additionally, trainers meet for one-on-one or semi-private sessions, and supplement workouts with nutrition support to help clients achieve varied goals, from building strength to fitting back inside their high-school-graduation cap.
The certified personal trainers at Achieve Fitness work to help their clients meet fitness goals. They strive to motivate their clients during one-on-one training sessions, nutritional counseling, and group fitness classes. In the spa, massage therapists help assuage guests' aches and pains. An aesthetician is scheduled to join the staff soon to beautify visitors with skin-smoothening services such as facials and eyebrow waxing.
The certified trainers at American Fitness have been helping their clients get into better shape for more than 27 years. This family-owned, functional gym has everything members need to burn fat and build muscle, from new cardio machines and free weights to resistance-training machines and group exercise classes. In this spacious facility, gym-goers can dance up a sweat in Zumba classes or punch, kick, and jab their way to fitness during kickboxing.
At Fit Zone for Women, ladies workout in a friendly, supportive atmosphere highlighted by natural light and a bright color scheme of purple and light pink. Upbeat music plays as members bounce from treadmills and elliptical machines to free weights and pin-select weight equipment. And to keep exercisers in the cardio area distracted from the burn, the gym boasts large screen TVs airing popular TV shows and videos of woodland creatures practicing yoga. The gym eschews the presence of sweaty and grunting power-lifters for the mindfulness of Pilates, yoga, and women’s self-defense classes. Members can even grab a paperback from the gym’s book nook before starting their workout to include their brain in their full-body workout, and lock up their belongings in the spacious locker room with private changing areas.
The word "Chela" is Hindi for "one who studies spirituality," and Chela Yoga believes in being a sacred space dedicated to helping its students connect their minds, bodies, and spirits. Chela Yoga is a warm and intimate yoga studio with a small group of focused, certified instructors teaching classes in everything from Ashtanga yoga to Zumba. Clients come into the minimally decorated studio to link breath with flowing movement in Vinyasa yoga sessions, or build lean muscle in challenging boot camp classes.
Owner and head trainer Michelle Gomez wants every member of 6 Degree Burn Fitness Studios to feel like family. Eschewing the cold, anonymous feeling of many large gyms, she created a kickboxing studio where each member is paired with a Burn Consultant—a trainer who helps clients achieve fitness goals and crafts healthy-eating plans. In addition to kickboxing, the studio’s exercise options include personal training, TRX suspension classes, Zumba classes, Power Stretch classes, and boot camp. There’s even a cardio boxing class tailored to members in wheelchairs.
