Gordon Franks and Pat Worley are more than black belts. They’re ninth-degree black belts who share their chosen martial art with youngsters and adults alike through USA Karate, the school they cofounded. The school - which opened in 1973 and has been operating for more than 40 years - was featured on the local CBS station and teaches self-defense techniques that help students graduate to higher-level belts and translate into increased agility, coordination, and self-confidence.
One of yoga's best qualities is its ability to give inner peace to the practitioner, who in turn is better prepared to connect with others and build community. At Platinum Yoga, this quality spills out of classes and into the post-class period as practitioners gather to share tea, coffee, and conversation about whether or not Downward is a good name for a dog. This sense of community isn't limited to yoga students, either?those who partake in fitness classes such as Zumba, Cardio Pump, and Nordic Walking also build camaraderie during and after high-intensity sessions.
At Trumi, a workout encompasses more than just exercise. It also means community, nutrition, and an opportunity to be close to nature. Trainers host group sessions outdoors whenever possible, teaching students to sprint, lift, jump, and sweat their way through routines that accommodate all experience levels. They also educate students about healthy eating choices, and encourage them to bond and support each other as they progress through the 12-week curriculum. Trumi coaches also offer individualized nutritional guidance with weekly challenges to help clients achieve their personal health goals.
Apart from its standard course, Trumi has programs for different age groups. The Trumi ReNu class helps senior citizens to retain their muscle mass, while the TruYouth class strengthens teens in time for the wrestle-the-dean portion of their college interviews. Kids ages 6-12 build their motor skills during Trumi Troopers sessions, and younger children stretch with their parents as part of the Trumi Trumites program.

To better help clients begin living healthier lifestyles, the trainers at ReVibe Fitness and Wellness design personalized fitness regimens intended to complement each individual's particular needs and goals. This flexibility allows the team to develop approaches that can help people lose weight, overcome health challenges, or improve their athletic performance, although the universal mission is to improve each person's quality of life. Regardless of the specific goal, the center's regimens tend to rely on the transformative power of the 3G WBV whole-body-vibration machines. This technology facilitates workouts by having clients stand atop a small platform that causes small, rapid muscle contractions by vibrating and sending waves of energy throughout the body 30?50 times per second. When combined with personalized sequences of exercises and postures, these vibrations can help improve muscle tone, bolster metabolisms, or build bone mineral density over time, all without placing major strain on the joints, tendons, and muscles that hold the eyelashes steady. The nature of each body-vibration session also ensures that workouts can achieve similar results in a fraction of the time when compared to traditional gym visits.
