The year 1986 was a health- and fitness-focused one. Mike Tyson became the youngest heavyweight boxing champion in history, smoking was banned on all forms of public transportation, and Being-Fit opened its doors. The gym sought to supply its members with everything they needed to reach their personal fitness goals. Though its equipment has been overhauled, Being-Fit’s mission hasn't changed in the intervening two decades.
Today, the gym's trainers host more than 30 varieties of group fitness classes, including yoga, Pilates, kickboxing, and Zumba. When not in class, students can take advantage of the cardio theater, where favorite shows and video clips of kittens wiping out on treadmills play constantly as people jog in place. Additionally, the gym’s personal trainers construct individualized workouts during one-on-one sessions, equipping members with repeatable exercises crafted to address personal fitness goals.
Party Fitness Studio owner Ninfa Skezas's dance experience has led her all over the world and landed her appearances on TV networks such as Telemundo, Univision, NBC, and Fox. With a background in styles such as merengue, salsa, flamenco, and hip-hop, she fuses these moves into fun Zumba fitness classes set to the tune of Latin beats. Like doctors and street magicians, Zumba instructors must be certified, which is why Ninfa has achieved multiple beginner to advanced Zumba certifications.
The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
ZFitness Classes & Apparel helms a range of fitness programs for women. Leading the charge are a team of upbeat instructors who draw from specialties and certifications in Zumba, Flirty Girl Fitness, and R.I.P.P.E.D., among other fitness styles. Every Monday through Saturday, the studio's sprawling open floor plan welcomes large classes where participants sweat through workouts designed to help them have fun while getting in shape. Zumba and Zumba Sentao lessons lead participants in calorie-burning dance routines set to energetic Latin music, while the Bokwa workout challenges them to draw letters and numbers with their feet until they've transcribed Shakespeare's entire oeuvre. Alternatively, instructors conduct high-intensity interval training during R.I.P.P.E.D. classes.
The trainers at Family Gym eschew the one-size-fits-all approach to fitness, understanding that people at different ages require different resources.They cater to a range of developmental phases, making them the perfect family gym. While parents take advantage of babysitting services, they can attend group fitness classes that the trainers scale to each individual's fitness level. These sessions are based on yoga, salsa dancing, and martial arts, and are held in both English and Spanish.
Zumba in all its forms—Zumba Toning, Zumba Plus Core, Zumba Plus Glutes, and Zumba for Kids—ranks at the top of the class list at Studio K Dance and Fitness. But it's not the only style of dance fitness offered in the studio. Hip-hop cardio, Bolly-Belly fitness, and Bollywood dancing also strengthen and shape bodies like a wetsuit made of steel. No matter which class they take, students learn to use the studio's wall of mirrors to perfect their hip swivels while beats reverberate off the hardwood floor and brick accent wall.
