Heroic Fitness tailors workouts to client needs. While weight loss may be achieved through all their programs, they can make it the primary focus with an emphasis on keeping the pounds off. Trainers can also prep participants for sports, customizing routines to enhance competitive edges. They can train clients to defend themselves, as well, with kick boxing, which also burns up to 500 calories an hour, forming slimmer, toned figures. For a mixed-bag method of fitness, they also organize boot camps that include resistance training, cardio, weightlifting, and more.
Studio 51 Fifty empowers individuals by providing them with the equipment, instruction, and motivation they need to pursue a healthier way of life. In a supportive and noncompetitive setting, the trainers help visitors work toward their particular fitness goals by leading a broad variety of classes. Kickboxing lessons combine cardio work and strength training into each workout and focus on developing the core muscle groups in particular. Their Pilates sessions draw inspiration from the Stott method, teaching students how to perform precise, controlled movements while using the various apparatuses?including Reformers and Towers?to facilitate each muscle-toning exercise. Studio 51 Fifty even offers kettlebell workouts, which build strength by using swinging and lifting exercises that mimic the movements found in real-world activities, such as shoveling, performing farm work, or hand-delivering shipments of kettlebells.
Kelly Wood started her career with nothing but a vision. That, and a handful of boas. Toting a traveling pole, the single mother of four began to conduct private pole-dancing parties within the living rooms of local Charlotte women before opening up her own private studio, Pole Dance Charlotte. Today, Kelly's studio bustles with both aspiring students and seasoned pole-dancing instructors during classes throughout the week.
Exposed brick walls surround the forest of chrome poles that spring up from the studio's 1,500 square feet of warehouse style floors, from which instructors lead classes in both pole technique and pole fitness. They even offer onsite private or semiprivate lessons, where they set up their traveling poles in the comfort of a student's own home or spot in a particularly lengthy airport security line.
The word shala means home in Sanskrit, and that's exactly what Yoga Shala Charlotte strives to be for its students. At the intimate studio, licensed instructors lead daily classes, monthly workshops, and teacher trainings in traditional Vinyasa-style yoga, helping students gain strength and flexibility in a sunlit and peaceful space. The friendly staff is passionate about creating a welcoming and healing environment.
At Pure Body Fitness Studio, clients are motivated to meet their personal fitness goals thanks to a wide range of classes, supportive trainers and coaches, and fun whole-body workouts. Personal training, group training, and bootcamp sessions help trainees burn fat and build strong, healthy bodies, while courses in cycling, yoga, Zumba, and TRX suspension training make for a varied workout structure.
At Hayastan-IMB Mixed Martial Arts, expert fighters teach adults and kids to not only fend off potential attackers, but also to evade a less tangible assailant: workout boredom. Rather than training with repetitive treadmill runs, students tone their physiques in combat classes using techniques such as grappling—a mostly ground-based style that blends jujitsu, judo, and wrestling. Kickboxing-and-MMA-fusion courses mix knee and elbow strikes with classic kicks and punches, and multiple levels of fitness boot camp burn fat, bolster endurance, and strengthen and condition bodies.
