At iRISE Performance, no two workouts ever have to be identical. Bootcamps and group classes spice up routines to add a social element to exercise, and rows of cardio equipment and weights allow individuals to progress at their own pace. But then the gym branches out beyond the expected. Two high-school-regulation basketball courts and one college-regulation court prompt pickup games before players step up to three powerlifting platforms to test their resolve. And anyone seeking to infuse their routine with functional-fitness moves can have a heyday in the turf room, where sleds, sandbags, a battling rope, and TRX equipment engage the core.
iRise Performance steps outside the gym too for a more holistic look at well-being. A fully functioning kitchen hosts cooking demonstrations and nutrition classes to help clients rethink their diet. And iRise also keeps exercisers from making up excuses or forging doctors notes for their trainers by giving them something precious: time. An onsite childcare room watches tots while parents and guardians blast their bodies in the gym.
Inside Element Fitness, the lime-green walls of the cardio room energize guests dashing away on treadmills as the yoga studio’s crisp white walls and glowing orb lights soothe yogis. The pool room echoes with splashing as guests stretch during pool aerobics classes; the dry sauna nearby remains quiet, letting guests absorb dry heat without listening to the heavy-metal albums played in traditional saunas. Stationary bikes adorn the spinning studio. Meanwhile, in workout studios lined with free weights, personal trainers make use of their professional weightlifting or triathlon experience during one-on-one personal-training sessions or group fitness classes.
