No men, no makeup, no mirrors. It's a philosophy that?s helped members of the Curves community since 1992. Part fitness center, part community center, Curves is a women?s only club that takes a streamlined approach to health, fitness, and weight loss. Curves has teamed up with health and fitness coach Jillian Michaels to develop full-body, 30-minute workouts that kick-start weight loss, combining strength training, cardio, and stretching into sessions that torch fat, build strength, boost intensity, and prevent plateaus. These workouts are enhanced further by the Curves Complete Program, available for an extra fee, which is rooted in Curves' method for effective weight loss in that it supplements efforts at the gym with personalized meal plans and weekly one-on-one meetings with a certified Curves coach.
The sledgehammer slams the earth with a resounding thud before being discarded for a game of toss-back with a medicine ball. Such training methods are but a small slice of the workout routine possibilities at Black Label CrossFit. CrossFit—an innovative strengthening and conditioning program that veers away from using traditional muscle-training apparatuses—has even gained popularity among the training programs of police academies, military special-operations units, and high-profile federal agents who yearn to get better at hopscotch.
On any given day, the training team provides students with new routines based on a combination of Olympic sports, gymnastics activities, and metabolic conditioning that may include moves such as sprinting with barbells, pull-ups, or inverted rowing. By changing things up all the time, trainers hope to inspire participants to remain engaged and feel challenged to always bring their best effort to improving their health and wellness. Each session is also timed and scored, encouraging students to keep aiming higher.
In a friendly, casual environment for sinews of all ages and fitness levels, Shelby Fit For Life starts every member off with one 60-minute personal-training session. An experienced trainer works with guests to assess fitness, note any special needs, and develop an exercise plan for quick and efficient results. Inside the fully equipped facility, treadmills and ellipticals toast calories, and a weight stack circuit and TRX suspension trainer expand muscles like puffer fish. Those favoring a more exotic approach can take advantage of Gyrotonics equipment to trigger memories of jungle-gym exploits or spice up workout routines with one of the included group classes. Students dance the night away in Zumba, find inner gurus with tai chi, or pack in strength, cardio, and core circuits in interval challenge. With keyless entry, Shelby Fit For Life stays open from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily.
