With 23 years of golf-instruction experience under her belt, head instructor Darlene Sommer turns greenhorn golfers into maestros of the greens with a combination of technology and careful instruction. Using video cameras and a 3-D motion-capture system, Sommer collects mountains of crucial data points, pores over the minutiae of stances and swings, examines childhood art projects, and addresses swing flaws with real-time feedback. The lesson, which lasts up to 45 minutes, helps improve swing mechanics and consistency, and it sufficiently stokes muscle memory so newfound club-swinging chops won't be forgotten by morning. To quickly brush-up on pointers and cover up holes in drywall, a printout of the computer data will be available after the session.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
Located in the Waterloo Harbor Campground right on the Seneca River, Fuzzy Guppies makes meandering the river's locks and creeks easy. Those who want to explore a bit further can rent kayaks, canoes, and other equipment to investigate the nearby Seneca Lake and Cayuga Lake; Fuzzy Guppies can deliver the watercraft. In addition to renting vessels, Fuzzy Guppies also gives lessons and oversees the Human Waterball. The Waterball gives people the chance to float and run on the water in a ball exactly like a hamster would, if a hamster could pay the rental fee.
At Prana Yoga, students gather beneath the wings of swans, which float across the studio's wall toward the inspirational quote "Let the beauty of what you love be what you do." Here, such wisdom surfaces from within as minds clear and muscles strengthen. During the signature Vinyasa flow class, the temperature rises to loosen tight muscles and oust squatting toxins. Students match deep, relaxing breaths with a series of ancient poses as teachers, such as studio cofounder Carrie Herscovici, circulate the room, lighting candles and gently adjusting bodily alignment. Drawing from her training with power-yoga superstar Baron Baptiste and Indian sage Senthil Kumar, Carrie inspires her students to surmount both physical challenges and mental unrest, strengthening the body while bringing peace to the mind. In addition to leading classes, she donates 10% of the studio's profits to charity and operates a clothing boutique that helps shoppers integrate yoga into their everyday lives and bow-tie collections.
When Rick Rugg and Bob Schiffhauer founded the first Athletic Club in Buffalo in 1980, they chartered their gym around three values: service, cleanliness, and having owners operate their own facilities. True to the founders’ original vision, each of the Rochester locations' employees strive to keep their cardio and resistance equipment spic and span as they care for facilities that range of up to 30,000 square feet. In addition to personal training, instructors lead more than 400 group fitness classes—including cycling, yoga, and Zumba—offered each week across their five locations. After workouts, guests can slip into saunas and private showers; most locations also have steam rooms, and the Perinton location has a pool. Three of the RAC locations are for women only, allowing them to workout uninhibited by the company of men or asexual mermaids.
