Studio Fit's instructors accommodate students with a wide variety of wellness goals by teaching a shifting roster of group fitness classes. Mainstream workouts from Zumba and Les Mills complement those of boot camps, indoor cycling, and kickboxing, each of which can scale their exercises for participants of all fitness levels. From atop an elevated platform, licensed instructors steer students through each exercise and easily spot scurvy-fearing sea captains trying to lick the studio's lime-green walls. Staff members can also pair up with clients for one-on-one personal-training sessions.
Focused Fitness' licensed and certified instructors help their clients stay in shape with personal-training sessions and a variety of group classes. Students can tone their muscles during Ab Blast, dance to Latin rhythms during Zumba classes, or exercise their entire body during boot-camp classes.
When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. MetaBody created a real-life version of that ticket with the MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.
Many gyms are essentially adult playgrounds where grownups run, jump, and sweat with their friends. The trainers at Pure Athletex Sportsplex take that idea one step further, complimenting their 1/8-mile track with a custom, adult-ready jungle gym. They challenge members to complete exercise circuits blending climbing and swinging with more standard cardio and strength training. They take on whole groups of students in regularly scheduled exercise classes ranging from yoga to TRX suspension training and Zumba. They torch even more calories with nationally renowned Les Mills group aerobics, which ramp up heart rates through time-tested methods of high stepping or releasing vipers into the classroom.
When not helping members achieve their general health goals, the trainers turn their attention to more sport-specific training. They offer speed and strength conditioning geared toward multiple games, but their headline sport is tennis, for which they host an entire academy with indoor and outdoor courts. They invite members to relax as well as work with an onsite, health-focused restaurant and juice bar called Pure Hospitality.
Xtreme Fitness flings open the doors to guests of all skill levels during classes that range from Zumba to Brazilian jujitsu, accommodating diverse tastes. While guests work out in the gym, the certified trainers patrol the free-weight area, cardio equipment, and the 700-square-foot matted space meant for martial arts and one-person trust falls, dispensing workout tips. They also help guests grasp onto the still-beating heart of their fitness goals during private, custom training sessions. When not absorbing self-defense strikes and yoga poses during classes, members can pop into the facility 24 hours a day to rehearse their conditioning routines or hide from hoards of lazy vampires.
In Tru-Strength Performance Center’s 4,700-square-foot gym, a team of personal trainers leads workout sessions, kickboxing classes, and boot camps that utilize a slew of cardio and strength-training equipment. Their range of classes includes general fitness boot camps—which whip students into shape with a blend of exercise and nutritional guidance—as well as dedicated training for performance athletes, with wrestling clinics and personal training.
