Dedicated instructors teach classes rooted in the vinyasa style?introductory-level sessions help beginners build a foundation for practice, while more advanced lessons challenge experienced students with faster-paced asana sequences that can feature inversions, deep back bends, and other physically demanding postures.
At Gold Medal Fitness, positive energy does as much work as anyone's muscles to propel group classes. These courses cover the grounded poses of Power Yoga, the barbell lifts of BodyPump, and the festive spins of Zumba with more than 50 sessions per week. Cyclists can even choose between 45-minute spin classes and the more vigorous rides of super spin, which increase the challenge by adding an extra 15 minutes and asking your parents to stop putting a stabilizing hand on your back. Regardless of the discipline, however, instructors motivate their students by carefully balancing the room's camaraderie with a honed focus on every individual.
This personal approach typifies the gym as a whole, where the staff strive to memorize each member's name as they arrange workouts for all fitness levels.

Other amenities include a childcare station, athletic speed school, HydroMassage, and a juice bar.
Sometimes, conquering a physical challenge requires more than just strength, it demands complete mental focus?especially when that challenge is learning how to throw MMA punches or muay thai strikes like a pro. The trainers at BrawlHouse know this well, which is why they've worked hard to create a supportive, distraction-free community where clients of all genders and ages can work to achieve their goals. The gym's fighting and fitness programs are designed to challenge minds and bodies at the same time, like a game of chess played in quicksand. Examples include Brazilian jiu-jitsu, which teaches the basics of submission grappling, SSF Elite, which fuses Pilates and yoga into one core-strengthening workout, and plyo-boot camp, which invokes high-intensity jump-training exercises.

Beyond the workouts, Iconic Fitness's staff makes the gym-going experience as enjoyable as possible, fostering a non-intimidating atmosphere to make visits more fun and decorating the outside of their facilities with greenery and waterfalls in case members have to imagine that they're Tarzan in order to build muscle.
