Abby M.—also known as Aerial Abby—spends a lot of time with her feet off the ground. The professional aerial acrobat has studied under Cirque du Soleil performers, not to mention working with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Abby's skills go well beyond the big top, however. She has studied yoga and other fitness disciplines, with a focus on areas such as balance, strength, and creating muscle mass leaner than a fitness magazine printed on deli meat. All of this expertise comes into play during Aerial Abby's workout sessions, which include an aerial fitness class, a hand balancing class, and personal training.
Whether bouncing, swinging, shooting, or running, visitors to Adrenaline City partake in a heart-pounding, exhilarating experience. Four massive attractions let kids and families take their pick of amusements—choose the trampoline park, and you'll jump and flip over 11,000 square feet of wall-to-wall trampolines. Choose the ropes course, and you'll balance over rickety bridges, swing above the ground, and wind your way through rope forests while safely tethered to the ceiling. Laser tag grants players with a virtually infinite variety of game modes that only make the 6,200 square foot arena awash with black lights, fog, and obstacles that much more thrilling. For a real-life video game experience, try Time Freak—the colorful game challenges players to see who can press a bounty of lit-up buttons the fastest, leading to a frantic match that requires speed, concentration, and a promise not to play the game on public elevators.
The fitness aficionados at Training Ground aren’t content to slog through dusty workout regimens. Instead, they introduce exercisers to TRABOKI, a fresh approach to fitness co-created by the facility’s owners that fuses elements of personal training, boot camp, and kickboxing into one intense total-body workout. Utilizing functional movements to build strength, TRABOKI shakes up uninspired routines with a new workout every day, keeping muscles more delightfully confusing than an episode of Yo Gabba Gabba! directed by David Lynch. A similarly novel approach to exercise, Tabata classes whisk groups through 30-minute power sessions of high-energy interval training. The results gained from both TRABOKI and Tabata carry over to Training Ground’s other exercise offerings, including personal-training programs.
Each of Hub City CrossFit's coaches were drawn to CrossFit after becoming disappointed with traditional globogyms, hoping to inspire in their students a newfound vigor and passion for fitness with energetic training regimens.

With regular tracking of Workouts of the Day, the gym fosters a friendly competition between members, all while building a strong, health-conscious community of like-minded members with its intense cardio and weight training.
The dedicated instructors at MaxOut Crossfit subscribe wholly to the CrossFit fitness method, which has built a following on its constantly varying high-intensity functional movements. Following this body-sculpting regimen, they lead clients of all abilities through intense rounds of movements—best exemplified in the center’s workout of the day—which may include disciplines such as weightlifting, rowing, sprinting, and climbing rope. They also incorporate barbells, gymnastics rings, and kettlebells to pump up strength and endurance between each class’s warm-up and group stretching sessions. Each day, trainers craft a new combination of these workouts to keep muscles from getting used to routines or falling asleep mid-deadlift. The center’s nutritional program further helps clients reach their fitness goals with a diet based on the consumption of organic foods and avoidance of starchy carbohydrates.
Through personal training and group fitness classes, Movers & Shakers Fitness Club coaxes clients off the couch and into the gym.

The club’s personal trainers also tailor one-on-one sessions to personal weight-loss or strength-training goals, and they supplement workouts with custom meal plans. The club's clients can complement their newly fit physique with onsite facials and body wraps.
