After more than 20 years spent in the fitness industry, Joshua Fleming founded Victory Fit Camp. His formula relies on physical and mental training that he learned in the US Marine Corps as well as nutritional advice from licensed experts. Today, each Victory Fit boot-camp session is led by an experienced coach, who walks clients of all fitness levels through indoor workouts or outdoor obstacle courses of ropes, foam pits, and trampolines.
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.
Established by the joint efforts of physical therapists and exercise experts, Village Fitness focuses on personalized care as the road to both recovery and overall health. Many of its amenities serve this dual purpose: handpicked pieces of strength equipment can boost muscle mass or rehabilitate injuries, and the LeRoy location's heated pool hosts aerobics classes alongside aquatic therapy. Other fitness classes accommodate guests of all backgrounds with Silver Sneakers senior programming, rhythmic Zumba routines, and full-body boot-camp drills. Family-oriented services such as open swim times strengthen bonds while promoting wellness, and allow entire households to paddle together without crowding the living-room fish tank.
