In EcoFusion Fitness's one-on-one personal-training sessions, certified personal trainers shepherd bodies through various exercises while highlighting equipment-specific benefits and discussing proper form. Training takes place in a private studio, making participants feel at ease while keeping out lonely zephyrs. The 10-class punch card unveils daily group-fitness classes. There’s both energetic fitness yoga and quiet, meditative yoga—with studio-provided mats—as well as men's muscle-conditioning circuits. An '80s aerobic session accelerates heartbeats with classic tunes, old-school dance moves, and threats of cone-bra pokes. After workouts, weary bodies luxuriate in hot showers stocked with organic toiletries and dry off with complimentary towels.
An uncoordinated child, Jess didn't really discover her athletic side until college. At that time, though, a group of friends introduced her to activities such as yoga, hiking, rock climbing, and biking. She realized that, with a little training, she could change the way her body worked, and begin to trust her own limbs. Now, as the owner and trainer behind JessBFit Personal Training & Yoga, she helps others transform into healthier versions of the themselves. She teaches outdoor fitness classes and yoga, as well as one-on-one training sessions customized to help clients achieve their personal fitness goals.
With 35 years of kid-entertaining experience, The Little Gym provides a safe and noncompetitive environment wherein wee ones and maturing moppets can exercise their brains and bodies. Visiting youngsters glean social, intellectual, and emotional skills from the facility's professionally developed parent-child program, which features diverse activities in gymnastics, dance, sports, and parent-child yodeling for mountain-echoing communication more effective than a squeal. With student to teacher ratios of 7:1, kids can also safely fly solo in programs that cater to differing ages, levels of muscle development, and hatred of vegetables. Each session's hands-on activities keep the indefatigable energy motors of little tikes revving, facilitate bonding, and boost listening skills, attention spans, and confidence. Check the complete class schedule for a list of all courses and to confirm times.
Each noncompetitive Curves facility invites female fitness-seekers to move through a 30-minute circuit of hydraulic resistance machines designed to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. Shunning cumbersome weight stacks, the hydraulic gadgets adapt to each exerciser's body weight and fitness level to complement her individual abilities, subsequently decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. And because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing unsuspecting grapefruit. Experienced trainers are always nearby to help clients manage their machine maneuvering, and a soundtrack of fun, upbeat music includes cues to let women know when it's time to move on to the next station or break for an air viola solo.
Jesse Ramos began his boxing career in Mexico when he was just 16 years old. Starting from such an early age, he learned to love the sweet science as a means to discipline his mind and connect with his body. With 30 years of experience now under his coaching belt, his passion for boxing burns all the brighter. Since opening up in 1999, Ramos, along with his team of dedicated instructors, has helped others stoke their own fighting fires. At Victory Gym, the coaches offer classes for students of any age or experience level. Students as young as 8 can work through basic techniques and footwork and build their conditioning, eventually graduating to live sparring inside the gym's regulation ring. For those looking to tone up while they float like a butterfly, but are too terrified to associate with bees, instructors also offer Zumba cardio dance classes.
The supportive yogis at Love Yoga Studio coach students in the spiritual, mental, and physical disciplines associated with their elongation expertise. Instructors lead their pupils through a variety of yoga styles to create a practice that is accessible to all skill levels, from bendable veterans to sentient mannequins seeking flexibility to fit in polite society. In addition to all-encompassing basic classes, specific lessons throughout the week focus on girls, teenagers, and men, and there are extra-gentle classes for members with chronic pain or old injuries. The studio currently schedules 18 classes each week but plans to add more options during the summer, when people need to be in healthy shape for complex ice-cream-truck heists.
