Tami Jones was a dancer since she was 2 years old, but an injury in college prevented her from pursuing it as a career. She turned to Pilates for physical therapy and in it discovered a renewed love of fitness. Later, Tami fused her favorite exercises—dance and Pilates—to create The Union Method, a fitness-focused program that seeks to unite mind, body, and soul while building lean bodies. Now, she and her fellow instructors teach yoga, Pilates, and barre classes to students of all experience levels.
It may seem counterintuitive to up your energy by expending it at boot camp, but Coach Cassie knows better. The fitness instructor creates outdoor boot-camp routines that not only exhilarate, but also burn calories and tone muscles—what she calls Pulse Boot Camp. It's a fitting name since her mash-up of strength training, running, core work, and other exercises gets pulses racing.
The staff at Body Fit Boot Camp eschews endless workouts on boring machines, helping their clients get in shape instead via three 30-minute workouts per week. Participants sweat efficiently and safely under the guise of their trainers, who also offer nutritional coaching and motivational tips to help them achieve their fitness goals.
Pilates Plus's workouts combine traditional Pilates exercises with the principles of SPX fitness for a workout that keeps muscles burning until they hit failure, boosting strength gains, and speeding students toward full-body fitness. Each session on the studio’s schedule empowers students to work toward five fitness goals: muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardio-respiratory endurance, flexibility, and body composition. The signature 40-minute workout routine, much like a life-or-death chess match, combines high intensity with slow, controlled movements. Students saddle up to the specialized Megaformer machine, a cousin of the traditional Pilates Reformer, which resists students' stretches, pushups, and lunges to provide a high-tension muscle workout without putting any stress on joints, the spine, or students' clockwork wind-up gear. After completing a class, Pilates Plus practitioners further benefit from excess post-exercise oxygen consumption, which keeps the heart beating faster, calories burning, and nearby trees clocking overtime photosynthesis hours.
Ninety-minute yoga classes conducted in a 105-degree room, twice a day, for nine weeks. This is what each of Bikram Yoga Bellevue's instructors conquered to obtain their 500-hour Bikram yoga teaching certifications. They now share their passion for Bikram Choudhury's 26-posture practice with their community, leading students of all ages and abilities down a path of mental and physical wellness. Throughout 90-minute classes, they inspire students with Bikram's carefully curated script and pepper the sessions with personal touches and individual attention. The studio's perspiration-inducing 105-degree heat and 45% humidity is intended to enhance the practice, helping even the stiffest muscles melt deeply into stretches as they move through the series of standing and seated poses. The balmy air also coaxes out sweat to expel harmful toxins from the body and increase one's appreciation for hugging snowmen.
