Sacred Streams has classes to suit every lifestyle, including bodhisattvas, those expecting regular babies, and those seeking increased flexibility and inner peace. For a fast, fat-burning ride of flowing poses, test-drive a vinyasa class, or dive downward-dog first into the slower, more-deliberate hatha practice. Those hoping to free up stored energy can opt for the rapidly moving kundalini practice, while those in need of a self-pampering can cozy up to a restorative class rife with pillows and blankets. Buy one for yourself, and gift the guys from your sewing circle or the ladies from your crocodile-wrestling club to join you on your journey across the yogaverse.
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.
Planet Fitness embodies a judgment-free zone where guests of all ages and fitness levels can sculpt their physiques with myriad aerobic and strength-training options within a friendly, down-to-earth atmosphere. Patrons may chisel, strengthen, and balloon muscles by pushing and pulling the extensive selection of brand-name equipment and free weights. With the help of a trained instructor, guests can design a custom workout program based on exercise history, medical background, and goals of completing an underwater bicycle race. Thirty-minute small-group classes concentrate on strengthening and toning specific body parts, and others promote salubrious bodies with full-body circuit workouts designed to give each and every lackadaisical muscle a Popeye-like infusion of metaphorical spinach.
Body by Frame employs a team of dietitians, personal trainers, and nutritionists to help each client achieve a well-rounded lifestyle that includes healthy eating and regular workout regimens. The fitness center offers a flexible schedule of small, focused group fitness classes, but the individualized approach is where the gym really gets a chance to shine. During intensive 50-minute small-group training sessions, personal trainers motivate you through exercises that build strength and cardiovascular endurance.
Founded by experienced trainer Mariah MacDonald, Revelation Fitness tailors its intense, result-focused workouts to suit each participant. Sweat miners at the group level (classes of four or more) meet two to three times a week in one-hour sessions, receiving individual attention from their trainer as they sprint, lift, and biathlon their way back to hand-modeling shape. RevFit online trainees will be guided through nutrition and workout plans by their trainer, who keeps tabs on them with daily phone calls and emails, as well as weekly photo check-ins and measurements. Heart-rate monitors track the exertion of exercisers in both programs and diet software makes for a nutritious snack.
