Personal trainer Jackie Mitchell started 3D Strong Fitness to help people get and stay in shape. Her fitness classes range from classic workouts such as yoga to modern workouts such as TRX suspension training and BOSU ball training. Nutrition services help exercisers stay healthy outside of class with such options as the Shopping Smart package, where a consultant accompanies the client to the grocery store, and the Pantry Raid package, where a consultant removes unhealthy food stored in kitchen cabinets and fridges or stashed out of sight in the VCR.
Consultation, muscle confusion, and nutrition. These are the main principles of Kosama Highlands Ranch, and the foundation upon which their guaranteed training programs are based. Certified trainers welcome every new client with a one-on-one consultation, complete with measurements, goal setting, and strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular health assessments. From there, clients embark on a personal training or group-fitness journey. The enthusiastic staff challenge participants’ muscles with high-intensity exercises using tools such as kettlebells, TRX training, and kickboxing moves. Six themed workouts throughout the week change constantly to ensure muscles never adapt and continually progress. An online meal planner complements in-studio training by giving members 24-7 access to weekly menus, recipes, and a list of holidays on which calories do not count.
Studio Sabor helps students of all experience and fitness levels trade in their bodies for leaner, more agile models in energetic dance classes held seven days a week. Bodies move in beginner classes that explore reggaeton, merengue, and cumbia styles, shake to the Latin-inspired beats of Zumba, or lounge to the yogic tape recordings of a blossoming lotus flower. More advanced students can manipulate slim weights in Zumba toning classes that build strength and deconstruct calories.
Originally founded by a group that includes retired pro boxer Danny Campbell, TITLE Boxing Club offers total-body workouts that blend boxing, kickboxing, and fitness. After donning tape and gloves, students can greet a 100-pound heavy bag with a barrage of kicks, jabs, crosses, hooks, and unkind words. Each of the club's trainers focuses on a different area, such as technicality, core and balance, or moderate- to high-intensity training. Other equipment around the facility includes a boxing ring, speed bags, and double-end bags, as well as free weights and cardiovascular machines.
UFC Gym’s four fight-centric Denver-area gyms ditch the polished look of wood-floored workout studios for gritty, competitive spaces filled with 150-pound punching bags and intense workouts. Like a baker molding gingerbread men, UFC Gym sculpts six-packs with boxing, kickboxing, and mixed-martial-arts classes. Although instructors and students agree that the gym’s atmosphere may enkindle intimidation in first-time attendees, most experience boosted self-confidence after conquering their first class. Private training sessions further stoke courage with workouts that leave patrons with the exhilaration of having survived 12 rounds in the ring or five minutes in a high-school lunchroom.
At 84 locations throughout the country, CorePower Yoga invites students to creative classes that meld movement, breathing, and music into entrancing routines to energize the body and mind. Signature CorePower Yoga classes lead students through dynamic, Vinyasa-style flows with demonstration and verbal cues, helping pupils of all experience levels tone core muscles and cultivate balance. During construction of all its new studios, CorePower Yoga strives to use recycled content, install eco-friendly and efficient mechanical systems, and ensure that any waste created doesn't end up in landfills or just piled in Mr. Henderson's garage.
Prestige Fitness, voted Best Gym in 2010 by Arizona Foothills Magazine, plays host to 11 different types of group workout classes each and every week. For a full-body session, try the new TRX suspension course, a gravity-defying workout incorporating ceiling-pinned suspension bands. Or drop in for a total-body conditioning class, which targets every muscle group using 52 workouts, such as squats and push-ups, to work each of the body's 52 different limbs. Hips shake and bellies shimmy in Latin-dance-inspired Zumba classes, and legs get limber in turbo kick's hip-hop infused cardio-kickboxing lessons. With a schedule as flexible as the limber instructors' favorite rubber bands, members enjoy access to up to 32 different weekly sessions running from 6:30 a.m. to 8:15 p.m. on most weekdays and some weekends.
