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.
Owner and certified fitness trainer, Scott York, leads constantly changing, high-energy boot-camp classes that were featured in Austin Fit Magazine. After stretching and a dynamic movement warm-up, bodies are kept guessing with activities that vary with each class. Participants (no more than 20/class) swing kettlebells, lift free weights, toss medicine balls, and dangle from gymnast rings in a 45- to 60-minute workout session that can burn roughly 500+ calories or the exact amount of nervous energy needed to fail a driver’s test. The early-morning sessions strengthen muscles and minds with positive energy throughout the day, with Scott encouraging exercisers to always work out within their comfort zone. FullForceFitness recommends that clients bring water, tennis shoes, health and consent forms, and a large beach-type towel for floor exercises.
The place formerly known as South Congress Athletic Club now greets exercisers with a new name, a fresh infusion of energy, and a staff of passionate trainers. Ignite Fitnez has everything you could ask for from a gym, including plenty of airy space for weightlifting and one-on-one coaching sessions. To slow down their pumped-up pulses, members can enroll in yoga classes that relax the mind and body. Other classes include kickboxing, martial arts, and weight training. And there's even more to be found right outside the gym's doors; the location is just a short distance from hiking trails lined with boulders begging to be thrown.
Fitness instructor Jeff Hughes first cinched up his black belt more than 15 years ago when he became an Austin-area kung fu instructor. Since then, he's incorporated a number of new moves into his fighting repertoire to create CrossPit, a multidisciplinary program that blends CrossFit fitness training with the no-holds-barred approach of mixed martial arts. He bases his program on the idea that the only things a fighter really needs to be successful are a solid stance, swift movement, stamina, and a few key strikes. With this guiding principle, he created a simple but effective fitness regimen that works for anyone from new moms looking to lose weight to experienced fighters hoping for victory at the next after-hours cage match on the Senate floor. He staffs his studio with handpicked instructors who enjoy the same rigorous training he does, and together, they lead classes in MMA, sports performance training, and kickboxing for men and women. Their kickboxing classes in particular garner a lot of popularity, attracting as many as 45 students per session.
