You don't have to be an Ultimate Fighting Championship fighter to train like one at UFC Gym. That's because instructors at the fitness haven teach the training techniques and mixed martial arts of the UFC during a wealth of classes and personal training sessions. Members can learn kicks, punches, and jabs during cardio box and combat challenge classes, and build formidable abs in Killer Core. In doing so, they'll develop the strength, muscle tone, and endurance to finally outrun the neighborhood bull.
In small classes limited to 10-15 students, the instructors of Body Rituals support their exercisers as they crush challenges and recuperate from injuries in a variety of engaging class styles. Due to the small class sizes, students are given personalized attention, ensuring that beginners gain a solid foundation in proper form as they progress into body-bending machines. Advanced students are catered to as well in classes such as body sculpting, barre, Zumba, and Pilates, with a schedule of morning and evening classes.
In a spinning class, the goal is simple: pedal as much as you can. This an easy goal to achieve at PEDAL Spin, thanks to classes that combine energizing music and visuals to make riding a stationary bike even more fun than the real thing. Different instructors inject their own personalities into their classes, ensuring that no two workouts are quite the same. But regardless of who's leading them, spinning classes always boost the heart rate, build strength in the core and legs, and provide an excuse to break out the ol' riding hat.
Inspired by their own successes with weight loss, the passionate, certified instructors of Exhilarate Fitness Studio work with clients to establish personal fitness regimens and goals. They offer classes such as Zumba, TRX suspension training, and circuit training that welcome men and women of all fitness levels and abilities.
Founded with the goal of bringing the community together through social events that promote physical fitness, Spearman Clubs keeps its members active via a host of well-maintained athletic amenities and all-ages activities.

The sleek, palm-tree-laden clubs also boast tennis courts?all equipped with hitting walls and ball machines?upon which players of all experience levels can practice their backhand during lessons and programs helmed by seasoned pros.
The Laguna Niguel Racquet Club bustles with activity as members shape up in Pilates classes or stave off hunger pangs at the Top Spin Bar & Grill. Personal trainers help visitors at the Tennis Club at Monarch Beach cloak their muscles in iron, and an onsite spa sends weary bodies into fits of unfettered relaxation.

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
First by offering them a non-intimidating atmosphere. We also offer a free orientation to every new member and over 50% off our personal training starter packs to help increase a person's chances of success. I have personally seen a much higher rate of success when a new member starts out using a good personal trainer. A good certified trainer will help you avoid injuring yourself, keep you accountable and motivated, help you select good food choices by designing a healthy meal plan, and keep you on a path to success through their expertise and experience while having fun.
What's the most radical physical transformation you've seen a client make?
I have seen quite a few people lose between 100 to 200 pounds and make some amazing transformations. I have also seen clients gain significant amounts of muscle while losing body fat, but if I had to pick one I would pick a trainer who works at World Gym. He recently decided to enter a men's physique competition and weighed around 240 pounds and needed to drop at least 40. He trained very hard and became very serious about his diet. After four months he had dropped over 50 pounds and looked fantastic with 5% body fat. Through the process he had great energy and never got moody because he was still able to eat a good amount of food while shedding the pounds.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We are also a smaller neighborhood type gym that has people from all walks of life. We are never overcrowded and you never have to sign up for treadmills like some of the bigger box clubs.
