Koko FitClub’s automated personal-training system rockets both men and women toward fitness goals with 30-minute custom workouts that incorporate cardio and strength training. An initial consultation determines fitness level and baseline measurements, which Koko’s machines use to design a bespoke workout plan that precisely measures the weight, pace, and rest time appropriate for each exerciser. The Koko machines guide exercisers through each workout and adapt as the user’s fitness needs change and constantly challenge the body.
Designed by professional trainers, workouts maximize the body’s lean-muscle mass, which can boost metabolism and help fight off disease by challenging viruses to kickboxing matches. Exercisers can track their shrinking waistlines and swelling muscles online by analyzing workout scores and comparing individual fitness levels to the Koko FitClub community.
To help fuel bodies, the KoKo Fuel custom nutrition plan provides clients with the exact quantity of macronutrients needed to build lean muscle and burn fat. The online nutrition plan is based on increasing protein intake and controlling carbs, which is clinically proved to help aid with weight loss.
The only way to get a body like a professional fighter is to train like a professional fighter. That's why students flock to The Pit Vegas's 12,000-square-foot facility—the diverse classes help people of all fitness levels build muscle and boost their health with combat-style techniques, but without the hazards of professional combat. The gym houses everything needed to get fit under one roof, from kettlebells and medicine balls to hanging bags. Weather permitting, some classes move outdoors to the large parking lot, where sledgehammers and tractor tires await. Mixed martial arts classes are also available for kids ages 4–14.
For more than 20 years, master glass blower Robert Shield has crafted his crystalline figures for people around the world, his masterpiece being a glass carriage and horse that he gifted to the British Royal Family. Seated before the azure flame of a torch, Robert can make a swan appear out of a plain glass tube, bending and blowing the hot, translucent material until it resembles the bird's feathered body and arcing neck, before smashing the piece because he hates swans. From his academy, Robert edifies protégés in the glass-manipulating arts, guiding beginners through creating festive ornaments and tear-drop necklaces, and empowering aspiring artisans to fire up saleable spun glass.
Gold's Gym began more than 45 years ago, and today features an impressive array of next-generation fitness gadgets, a results-oriented focus, and squeaky-clean facilities. With today's deal, one of Gold's Gym's staff of certified personal trainers will test each client's strength and flexibility, among other metrics, to help determine and design a personalized fitness regimen. Thus inspired, neophyte iron workers can complement their one-on-one sessions with regular attendance at the gym, where they can hop on a cardio machine, pump up in a controlled manner on strength-training machines, tighten up in the abdominal- and functional-stretching area, or stick with lifting huge, heavy pieces of metal and commercial chest freezers.
Judi Sheppard Missett never could have imagined that the workout she created called “Jazzercise”—a routine that combines her beloved jazz dance moves with resistance training, Pilates, yoga, and kickboxing—would affect and change so many lives worldwide. Its reach extends into Las Vegas thanks to certified instructors who teach the 60-minute workouts up to seven times a week. There is also a low-impact class option, which follows the same dance-centric routine but shies away from jumps in order to safeguard achy joints.
At Optionz, arriving for a photo shoot with only a sweatsuit and sneakers can still lead to beautiful portraiture. The studio closet brims with lingerie, costumes, hats, and jewelry that subjects can don to boost the glamor level of their shoots. An all-female team of makeup artists and stylists can further primp subjects, crafting a natural look or adding glitter, rhinestones, and false eyelashes to prepare faces for photographer Lezlie and her lens. With a background in psychology, Lezlie sets her subjects at ease during her boudoir, glamour, and wedding shoots with her easy demeanor, rather than by having a massage therapist’s hands show up in every shot. To complement the photography and makeup studio, an on-site boutique brims with statement jewelry that ranges from rhinestone pendants to spider-shaped rings.
