Club Fitness tones and pampers bodies with group training, personal training, and tanning services, earning the Best of Gloucester County award in 2013 for tanning services. The 15,000-square-foot club spans two floors partitioned into dedicated rooms for cardio, Group X, and spinning, as well as a fitness floor lined with Hammer Strength, Cybex, Precor, Star Trac, and Life Fitness equipment. Group exercise classes meet seven days a week, and Club Fitness frees up workout time for busy parents with onsite childcare and robot stand-ins to send to the office. To replenish spent energy reserves, a shake and juice bar pours out chilled refreshments and steaming cups of gourmet coffee.
Lauren “Pinki” Schiavo began her pole career as a student at Poise Dance Studio in 2005, and her spinning skills soon blossomed and earned her an instructor position. When the studio's owner sold the space, Lauren took the helm and injected some sass into the class regimen, renaming her business Flaunt Fitness as an homage to empowered women of all ages and body types. She drew from her training in jazz dance, hip-hop moves, and gymnastics to augment her pole-dance prowess and recruited a squad of professional teachers to lead her schedule's shimmies.
Flaunt Fitness' classes impart pole twirls and calorie-dropping cardio workouts under one roof. The DVD Fitness classes screen popular exercise videos as instructors ensure that guests maintain good form, and private parties spice up dance lessons with champagne and making balloon animals with just your feet. Further slimming figures, the studio sustains a support network for members with monthly encouragement meetings sharing healthful recipes and nutrition products for purchase.
