Curves houses a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and cope with arthritis. Instead of guests fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches each exerciser's abilities during their 30-minute workouts. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, machines use push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
At Bay Area Yoga, a medley of moldable mentors, all nationally registered with the Yoga Alliance, are on hand to help beginner benders and flexperts alike. Nirvana newbees looking to build on their basic abilities will benefit from the self-paced beginner class, which focuses on developing strength, flexibility, stamina, and concentration. More dexterous disciples can opt to flex an already malleable muscle in the advanced course, which combines precision of alignment with an awareness of the breath-body connection, or quiet a mind traumatized by work, school, and Gilbert Gottfried–narrated audio books in asana breath meditation. Loose-limbed guests stuck in rigid routines will appreciate the flexible class schedule, and Bay Area Yoga happily supplies students with any necessary class props such as mats, straps, blocks, and cupcakes carefully positioned just out of reach.
The Greater Green Bay YMCA keeps community members in peak cow-tossing condition with a staggering selection of fitness, sporting, and outreach programs. During the unlimited, month-long training montage, members sculpt their physiques with the Y's extensive facilities, including state-of-the-art cardiovascular and strength training equipment, group fitness classes, open and family gyms, and more. Exercisers can pump up their blood pump with the cardio theater entertainment system, bulk up atrophied gills in the member's pool, or donate sweat during fast-paced bouts of basketball or racquetball.
For 26 years, Titletown Fitness has been toning physiques and promoting general fitness with an array of amenities. Decorated with advanced cardio equipment, such as elliptical trainers and recumbent stationary bikes, Titletown gets hearts racing without the threat of wind burn in a spotless facility that welcomes patrons of all fitness levels. A full selection of free weights and strength-training machines gives body builders a chance to reinforce muscular foundations, and a 40-foot lap pool confers full-body swimming workouts along with the feeling of weightlessness. Members can take advantage of on-site childcare for an additional charge ($1.50/child), which lets little ones play under the watchful eye of chaperones.
Western Raqcquet & Fitness Club originally opened in 1974 as a premier sport and fitness facility and has since maintained its image by constantly updating equipment and adhering to core values that promote lifelong health. Members can enjoy high-quality cardio equipment complete with on-board entertainment, plus free weights, unlimited group exercise classes (yoga and Pilates), 10 indoor tennis courts, four racquetball courts, complimentary towel service, steam room, sauna, whirlpool, and much more. The staff is so supportive to all customers that an old hot wives tale declares that the building itself is built solely out of their sheer strength, encouraging compliments, and extensive knowledge of construction. When guests aren't busy battling flab with a fury of sweaty bullets, they can also enjoy affordable on-site childcare as well as hunger hospitality at the Center Court Cafe & Lounge. The first 20 Groupon customers to redeem their membership will also receive a complimentary 30-minute massage.
Jim's education wing boasts an impressive stable of professional, gifted instructors, including three-time Grammy nominee, Todd Buffa, who can prep your pipes for pitch-perfect performance as a personal voice instructor. Learn the ins and outs of tonality and pitch from Todd, who can talk about opening for Miles Davis or the night he and Michael Bolton found a Siberian tiger in their hotel room. Aspiring guitar-shredders and piano-pounders can also become proficient in scales, chords, and the melodic basics of their instruments. Jim's recommends bringing your own vocal chords, but it will provide guitars or pianos to instrument-less students during lessons. Lessons are scheduled based upon availability and demand, so prospective pupils should call ahead to reserve a spot.
