At Fitness Together, getting fit involves getting focused and fired up to achieve. Here, certified personal trainers guide clients of all skill levels through motivating boot-camps and exercise programs designed to meet goals loftier than a giraffe’s basketball hoop. To help their charges torch calories and tone muscles as efficiently as possible, the trainers incorporate evidence-based training methods, such as intervals, tempos, and fartlek, into each fitness regimen. Filled with cardio challenges and resistance training, workouts are tailored to individual needs and paired with nutrition tips that help the body build lean muscle. In-studio sessions take place in a private, spa-like studio, flush with energizing red walls and functional training tools such as medicine balls, kettlebells, and gymnastics rings.
Within Athletes Equation’s newly expanded 5,000 square feet of training space, the gym’s certified fitness team guides members through the exercises and cardio training needed to boost both muscle tone and overall health. Members can go at their own pace on any of the hand-picked weight equipment or partake in one of the gym’s boot camps and training sessions to get in shape for an upcoming marathon or the eventual day a tractor tire gets stuck in your yard.
Guests exercise their bodies and minds at ForeCourt Complete Racquet and Fitness Club, where tennis, volleyball, weight-lifting, and other recreational pursuits fight both boredom and inactivity. The blue carpeting of eight indoor courts lies under the tennis arena's vaulted ceiling that echoes the wallops and whacks of each serve, volley, and backhand. During clinics and lessons, beginners learn basic mechanics, court placement, and racket grips, and more advanced players compete in leagues that demand the skill and strategy of playing Risk on trampolines. Forecourt’s 10,000-square foot fitness center invigorates mind and matter ready for a break from prowling the baseline. Each week, 50 group fitness classes whip bodies into shape with Zumba's dance cardio programs, yoga's relaxing postures and poses, and spinning's hardy treks across digital terrains. An onsite daycare frees parents to pursue these activities without having to hire a teenager or a guard baboon to babysit their children.
Heather Hill Country Club lets players decide their own 18-hole path using a trio of nine-hole layouts that populate this 27-hole country club. Whatever two tracks they choose, golfers bend their shots around dense foliage and over the streams that occasionally babble into the line of play. After the last golf ball emerges from the 18th cup as pure gold trophy, groups can retire to the bar and grille to satisfy hunger with burgers, salads, and wraps on the back patio.
