Anytime Fitness, which boasts more than 2,014 clubs in North America and 564 across the globe, makes it easier for average folks to etch out time for exercise by doing one simple thing: staying open 24 hours a day for 365 days a year. As health and fitness seekers challenge themselves on Life Fitness/Hammer Strength cardio machines, weight machines, and free weights in clean, well-stocked facilities, security monitoring ensures they?re safe and producing enough sweat to meet official government standards. Members can also ramp up their exercise regimens with the help of Anytime Fitness?s staff of personal trainers, who demonstrate moves and sling motivating tips. After workouts, guests can shower in the private restrooms or hop into one of the tanning booths available 24 hours a day.
At Crossfit Epiphany, the certified coaches lead exercisers on ever-changing tours around the gym's array of barbells, boxes, kettlebells, and medicine balls. The exercises performed at each station are by nature functional and inclusive, allowing all clients to develop and improve their fitness for every-day activities regardless of prior experience, shape, or exclusivity agreements with other truck tires. The group-class setting encourages a fun and supportive atmosphere, one that spurs all members to sweat and push themselves throughout the Workout of the Day?aka WOD. The WOD might draw from Olympic weightlifting, gymnastics, or cardio exercises on any given day, but each is designed to sculpt physiques and improve patrons' overall health regardless of their life stage.
When you walk into Northwest Women's Fitness Club, you might wonder if you've stepped into a day spa. Soothing yellow, green, and lavender tones create a tranquil backdrop for a variety of fitness equipment. Adirondack chairs, thatch accents, and wall-based mantras such as "peace" give the sauna a laid-back, tropical vibe. Visitors might spy women smiling as they drop their kids off in the daycare area before a Pilates class, belly-dancing workshop, or relaxing massage.
