To help women achieve their fitness goals, the certified personal trainers at Get In Shape For Women focus on four areas: weight training, cardio training, nutrition, and accountability. In small group sessions, trainers modify exercises to suit up to four ladies' fitness levels, beginning by calibrating strength-training sessions—such as free weights, lunges, and squats—to each client's abilities while still ensuring they are challenging themselves. Then comes high-intensity cardio interval-training sessions in which trainers encourage exercisers to achieve optimal results on the treadmill or elliptical.
The trainers supplement the group workouts with nutritional planning centered around the concept of eating six small, balanced meals six days a week. They set aside the seventh day as a "free day" for a bit of indulgence, be it eating a favorite sweet or lusting openly after bacon. To hold their women accountable, trainers talk nutrition on the floor during scheduled appointments, and the ladies' progress toward reaching their goals is measured by trainers each week.
Integrity Health Coaching For Women never closes. The workout machines, free weights, and various other equipment at the women-only fitness center remain accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week. More importantly, Integrity Fitness is committed to helping women achieve their fitness goals at a reasonable cost without forcing them to choose between a good value and high-quality amenities. That's why Integrity includes a personalized meal plan, small group classes, and custom workouts in their memberships. They even provide progress reports so their members can see their health improving and track their weight loss without having to hand out "Lost" flyers all over town.
To help women achieve their fitness goals, the certified personal trainers at Get In Shape For Women focus on four areas: weight training, cardio training, nutrition, and accountability. In small group sessions, trainers modify exercises to suit up to four ladies' fitness levels, beginning by calibrating 30 minutes of strength-training drills—such as free weights, lunges, and squats—to each student's abilities. Then comes 25 minutes of cardio: the trainers might start novice exercisers with a walk on the treadmill or light elliptical training, and challenge more advanced exercisers to high-intensity interval-training sessions for enhanced results.

Revolution Bodywork opened with the goal of bringing affordable natural healthcare solutions to the whole community. Because treatments and services can be too expensive for many to use as often as they need it, Revolution offers all of its treatments on a sliding scale, allowing clients to choose what they can afford to pay.
These treatments include a separate community acupuncture clinic, nutritional consultations, and massage and bodywork. During community-acupuncture sessions, which take place in a group setting, the practitioner targets various acupoints with tiny needles that stimulate the body's ability to heal itself. Traditional sports and orthopedic massages work alongside craniosacral therapy to relieve pain and enhance emotional well-being. With all these healthcare solutions, Revolution’s wellness experts have seen success in treating a variety of different problems, such as back pain and migraines.
Koko FitClub’s automated personal-training system rockets both men and women toward fitness goals with 30-minute custom workouts that incorporate cardio and strength training. An initial consultation determines fitness levels and baseline measurements, which Koko’s computerized equipment uses to design a tailored workout plan that precisely measures the weight, pace, and rest time appropriate for each exerciser.
The Koko machines guide exercisers through each workout and adapt as the user’s fitness needs change in order to constantly challenge the body. Designed by professional trainers, workouts maximize the body’s lean-muscle mass, which can boost metabolism and help fight off disease by challenging viruses to kickboxing matches. Exercisers can track their shrinking waistlines and swelling muscles online by analyzing workout scores and comparing individual fitness levels to the Koko FitClub community.
