The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
"Unity in motion." That's the motto of SYNCD-N owners Howard and Dawn Lindsay, and it's not lip service?it's literal. That's because the husband-and-wife duo deal exclusively in tandem bicycles. "Riding a tandem bicycle requires a team to communicate thoroughly, to trust each other...and to lean on one another when one team member gets tired," they share on their website. This shines through in both their commitment to each other?which has been strengthened since they took up the sport?and to their customers, to whom they offer trial rides. The rides familiarize the customers with the skills necessary for navigating a bicycle together, from peddling in sync to leaning in the same direction in order to dodge puddles full of tears from lonely unicyclists.
Licensed massage therapist Debbie. Q. Allen?s menu of 5 modalities reflects her encyclopedic knowledge of her craft. She could tell you, for example, how Swedish massage?s roots lie with a Dutch therapist who named each of the basic strokes after French words. Of course, she?d only go into that if it helped a client relax. Otherwise, she?s content to do the listening, letting clients? muscles show her the origin of every ache. She then draws upon specialized techniques?such as deep-tissue and trigger-point therapies?in order to ease muscles bound into Celtic love knots.
In addition to helping guests attain relaxation, her massages may impart other benefits such as accelerating healing, improving range of motion, and boosting feel-good neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin.
