Fitness 19's founders launched their first family-oriented gyms in 2003, hoping to splash the exercising experience with local flavor and familiarity. Life Fitness cardio machines—including treadmills and ellipticals—unite with strength-training machines and free weights to help members to build leaner physiques as certified personal trainers patrol the deep-red-carpeted workout area. The expert staff can also guide clients through yoga, martial arts, and weight loss–centric personal-training sessions. Every location also hosts a kids' room, where youngsters can craft macaroni kettlebells under the supervision of a full-time staff member.
All the instructors at Hiit Fitness have an intimate relationship with fitness, having arrived at being health experts through bodybuilding or their own weight-loss journeys. Today, they lead students of all experience levels through classes that include boot camps and TRX Suspension.
Brandon Monin makes the most of the space at One Up Sports Performance and Wellness. As head trainer and instructor, Brandon leads personal-training sessions and group workouts that use the equipment at his disposal to push clients toward their fitness goals and develop skills in a variety of sports. The experienced strength and conditioning coach has experience studying and analyzing sport movement that he uses to design plans for athletes in a variety of sports, including soccer, hockey, and lacrosse. He specializes in evaluating and assisting in golf fitness, holding a certification from Titleist Performance Institute. He shares his knowledge in a 4,000-square-foot studio that features a spread of weight-training equipment and a special area that resembles grass so athletes can feel like they're training on a field or inside an alien zoo exhibit meant to resemble their habitat.
The trainers at TREO Sports & Fitness work with seasoned athletes as well as clients of all fitness levels to help them achieve their fitness goals, from improving their game to staying in shape. Athletes looking to improve their performance in specific sports get a customizable fitness plan that takes into account fitness level as determined through regular testing and assessment, as well as physiological strengths and weaknesses. In addition to forming training around athletes’ goals, the trainers also consider their schedules, accommodating competitions and mental and physical fatigue from events. Sports performance training is available for athletes aged 10 and older, as are movement-efficiency assessments to make sure they aren’t overexerting themselves while running through late-for-class anxiety dreams.
In addition to sport-specific programs, the trainers also lead classes for general fitness, such as boot camps and fitness training, using the facility’s sweeping outdoor fields and weight room.
Southtowns's mix of cardio equipment, weight machines, and 15 fitness classes add spice to dragging workouts to maximize overall health while minimizing waistlines. A full roster of classes such as Zumba, Tai Chi, yoga, Spinning, and boot camp promotes toned physiques in fun, encouraging sessions, and activates all muscle systems, like a slap fight with a squid. The gym's Body Sculpting class, for example, attacks lethargy by challenging participants with free weights, resistant bands, and core-buttressing Pilates. After a heart-pumping session on the gym's cardio machines, exercisers can refuel with a beverage at the juice bar. Nutritional guidance and an accountability club help arm guests against fitness slumps, encouraging patrons to stick with health regimens when schedules get busy. The gym also accommodates parents with free daycare by reservation during peak hours, and towel service in the facility's locker rooms prevents clients from having to work out in a linen closet. Check the fitness center's schedule for full class details.
When Rick Rugg and Bob Schiffhauer founded the first of their gyms 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 location's employees strive to keep their cardio and resistance equipment spic and span as they care for facilities. In addition to personal training, instructors lead a schedule of more than 400 group fitness classes?including cycling, Kardio Kick, and Zumba?offered each week across their eight locations. At the clubs, trainers also help guests master CrossFit functional equipment and use TRX suspension training systems to help them connect with their vine-savvy pet orangutans.
