Students of all skill levels flex their way to stronger minds and bodies and achieve premium pliancy at Copper Tree Wellness Studio, named one of the area’s best yoga studios by WISN.com. With a packed schedule of daily yoga and Pilates classes, the studio makes limber limbs more accessible for those busy with daily demands of work, family, and basket weaving. Concentrated around a powerful core, Pilates sessions focus on stability as the first principle before working toward more challenging moves, such as torso twists or hands-free cartwheels. Yoga, a practice more than 2,000 years old, is adaptable to any body and can improve posture and alignment, along with spiritual and physical health.
Snap Fitness, bustling with cardio and strength-training gear, throws open the doors to its facilities 24/7. Before exercisers put sneakers to treadmills or lift their first weights, staff meet with them to talk about their fitness goals before suggesting personalized fitness plans based on clients' strength, cardio condition, and bionic-limb manufacturers. The gym keeps members motivated with regular check-in calls and demystifies healthful eating with custom online meal plans designed by nutritionists. Staff also forestall exercise-routine boredom by working individually with clients on a routine basis.
Dolphins Cove thumbs its nose at the furious summer sun with more than 46,000 square feet of watery attractions. Revelers steel their courage before careening down 800 feet of waterslides, or challenge each other to games of water basketball, wall-climbing, and zip-line drops. More relaxing diversions include the outdoor bar and party deck, as well as the lazy river—which will never live up to the example set by the Colorado River in terms of canyon carving and doesn't really care. Kids can safely splash in their own activity pool.
After graduating from the University of Wisconsin with a degree in kinesiology exercise science, ACE-certified trainer and Fit Fun Bootcamps founder Dustin Maher designed MamaTone Fitness to help moms vanquish weight gain after childbirth. Inspired by his own mother—who cooked his siblings and him healthful meals but rarely had enough time to exercise—Maher strives to imbue his clients with the motivation to do both. Whether training new moms, moms-to-be, dads who had moms, or curiously fast sons whose moms found them in the middle of a Kansas corn field climbing out of a spaceship, his group classes and boot camps immerse participants in a full-body workout with moral support from neighboring exercisers.
