Woven into the fabric of Radiant Yoga is a dedication to healing. In the quiet studio heated to 100 degrees or more, instructors guide students through a hot Hatha yoga series that aims to rid bodies of toxins, improve flexibility, tone muscle, and burn a fistful of calories to prevent injuries and maladies. Now in a new location, the studio has begun offering Baptiste-inspired Power Vinyasa classes that are designed to energize everyone from beginners to the most experienced practitioners.
To bolster mental wellbeing, yogis help center pupils at candlelight hot-yoga sessions, which strengthen cores with gentle exercise and slow-breathing techniques set to music. Outside the studio, the staff reduces aches and pains with a combo of Eastern and Western therapies such as raindrop therapy and massages. Keeping guests out of the clutches of Big Pharma, the mythical falcon that sneaks aspirin into people?s mouths as they sleep, the studio hosts holistic clinics where they divulge homespun and organic remedies for allergies and other ailments.
Although Main Street Strength & Conditioning recently moved to more spacious digs—its new location boasts 7,500 square feet, an upgrade from its previous 1,200-square-foot facility—it hasn't left behind its tried-and-true exercise methods. Kettlebells, battling ropes, tires, and sandbags help exercisers plow through calories in group training classes, personal training sessions, or on-location boot camps. The classes mix strength and cardio work for intense sessions designed to rapidly replace fat with muscle and weak abs with Lego abs.
Niki Gauthier has always loved fitness. Some of her earliest memories include watching her mom exercise at home and wishing she could escape from the gym's childcare center to join the grown-ups who were working out. And as a mother of two who lost 50lbs after each child, she knows what it takes to lose weight and tone up. Today, she tailors her boot-camp classes to be more than just a fitness class. One that helps women achieve their fitness goals, whether they'd like to lose weight, tone up, or look more like their favorite marble statue. Trainers work to provide a complete personal fitness programs and keep their students accountable for showing up to class and putting in a good workout, and they offer exercise modifications that help customize the workouts to every ability level. Classes develop camaraderie among participants as they encourage each other through varied exercises, whether they're swinging kettlebells, practicing kickboxing motions, running a mile, or cooling down with yoga poses. Regular body assessments help students see their results, and the trainers bolster the workouts with continual nutrition education.
At the age of three, an age when most kids are honing their recipe for Play-Doh spaghetti, Danika Miles was perfecting her dance moves. She competed with the River Cities Dance Company, minored in dance at Marshall University, and went on to earn an MBA so that she could share her passion with others. Finally, she founded BareFeet Studios, a facility with two dance spaces and sprung-wood floors. Within BareFeet, Danika and fellow instructors lead student?as young as three to adults?in dance forms such as ballet, hip-hop, and tap. They also offer open-level yoga, Zumba, Pilates, and fitness boot camps.
Students with years of experience can audition for BareFeet Studios' senior company, which performs at benefits, charity events, and conventions with other professional dance companies. The studio additionally hosts an annual spring concert, birthday parties, and private lessons.
Created by fitness trainer and life coach Dr. John Spencer Ellis, and conducted by ISSA certified trainer Josh Allen, the Nashville Adventure Boot Camp program shepherds women to physical fitness with motivational workout regimens and nutritional counseling. Before the camp starts, trainers take your measurements and body-fat percentage before hopping into a curious pod, leaping into the future, and comparing them to those of the trimmer post-camp you. In the interim, the four-week workout regimen cycles through circuit training, jogging, kickboxing, and yoga to surprise and challenge muscles. During inclement weather and unforeseen renaissance festivals, sessions move into a 10,000-square-foot heated and air-conditioned facility, complete with showers and bathrooms.
