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.
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.
Though certified trainer Jon Drees wants his clients to lose weight and gain confidence, he also wants them to build strength they can use in everyday life. That's why he equips his gym with functional training equipment. Suspension training harnesses put bodies in charge of their own gravity, and an open area of turf lets athletes simulate games of pretend mowing-the-lawn. Boot camps and personal-training sessions also call upon kettlebells and ropes to round out complete workouts, which can be customized to meet the specific needs and goals of each individual.
Trainers at Mash Performance treat all of their students as individuals, even in small-group training sessions. They incorporate strength training, agility exercises, core work, and conditioning into a single workout. Both functional training and quick spurts of energy play a role in sculpting physiques at classes such as adult metabolic training and speed development. Thanks to a partnership with The Minnesota Mash Baseball Club, they also offer instruction in fielding and hitting.
