The certified personal trainers at Elite Fitness and Health know that no exercise, no matter how effective, will actually work if folks just aren't motivated. That's why the crew develops their programs around people rather than rigid fitness dogma. Bosu balls, yoga mats, or even empty sidewalks get wrangled into routines, keeping classes engaging. Though the trainers are keyed up to work with clients one-on-one, there's really no substitute for old fashioned peer encouragement. To that end, the gym hosts Moms Night Out Zumba events and small-group personal training sessions. And if after a rigorous workout clients want to kick back, Elite Fitness and Health has just thing thing: the studio keeps a licensed massage therapist on hand to reward fatigued muscles.
Jessica and Karina each hold two licenses: one for driving a vehicle, and one for teaching Zumba classes. At Zumba Fitness, it's the latter that matters most. With international tunes as their soundtrack, the pair leads pupils through easy-to-follow dance moves that help them drop pounds and sculpt their physiques. In addition to traditional Zumba workouts, the duo teaches Zumba Toning classes, which incorporate light hand weights for strength-training exercises, and Zumba Sentao courses, which use chairs during targeted resistance-training routines.
What Weight Time Fitness lacks in square footage it makes up for in convenience. The door to this 3,000-square-foot gym is open 24/7, allowing exercisers to work out whenever their schedule permits or their pet hummingbird finally falls asleep. One half of the gym has strength-training machines and free weights, and the other has Life Fitness treadmills that face flat-screen TVs. If desired, guests can also take advantage of the gym’s infrared dry sauna, personal-training sessions, and complimentary WiFi.
