When the sun is shining and the air is warm, you can spot coaches Steven and Gaby, a 2013 CrossFit Games Winner, leading energetic CrossFit classes at local beaches and parks. On weekdays, classes take place in an intimate studio packed with weights and functional equipment. Using kettlebells, medicine balls, and body weight as their tools, the coaches guide students through creative workouts designed to build muscle, speed, and endurance. They frequently draw exercises from gymnastics, metabolic conditioning, and weightlifting to create their diverse workouts. The staff strives to build a supportive community in the gym, providing students with constant motivation and graciously accepting even the ugliest of hand-knit gym socks as gifts.
A self-described no-nonsense fitness studio, The Loft Gym's trainers focus on one thing and one thing only: getting their clients in great shape, quickly and safely. Inside the airy, lofted space, treadmills and weight machines await visitors along with handful of classes such as yoga, Zumba, and tai chi. The line-up also includes an intense boot-camp course, which encourages new students to work at their own pace until they can eventually complete the class from start to finish without stopping or quoting Stripes.
The owners of Cutting Edge Fitness claim "the fitness industry is constantly evolving." To stay abreast of the ever-changing trends, they stock their facility with up-to-date technology and incorporate the industry's most innovative workout regimens during many of their group classes. They track pulses during select sessions on polar heart-rate monitors that display data on a 7-foot projection screen at the front of the room, encouraging attendees to monitor their progress and put the equipment's lie-detector capabilities to the test. They also lead virtual spinning sessions and vibration-based Power Plate classes, putting their own contemporary twists on familiar workout regimens.
The instructors also draw from their conventional arsenal of kettlebells, resistance bands, TRX suspension systems, free weights, and Pilates equipment as they lead invigorating sessions intended to tone muscles or incinerate free-loading calories. They incorporate multiple techniques to create challenging whole-body workouts, and they welcome students of virtually any age or fitness level.
Dirt Fitness owner Kelli Musa designed the signature workout at Dirt, which has been mentioned by outlets such as the Palm Beach Post, the Boca Raton Observer, and NBC 6. Fusing elements of cardio and strength training, the 40-minute Dirty 40 sessions gather groups of students to burn up to 700 calories, which is equivalent to a hamburger's entire weekly income. Instructors also lead Vinyasa yoga classes, isometric barre fitness classes, and Hot Barre classes in a 90-degree room. Certified trainers even supervise open-gym sessions, allowing students to pursue extracurricular fitness on their own. Dirt Fitness recently expanded with the opening of it newest location in Boca Raton which features an 8000 sq. ft. fitness studio.
Devised by Pure Barre founder Carrie Rezabek, these fusion classes will work your body in ways it's never been worked before by balancing the grace of dance with the exertion of lifting and the soothing stretching of stretching. Each 55 to 60-minute session loosens, strengthens, and lengthens the body through the perfect blend of the ballet barre, weight training, and limber Pilates. In the process, you'll tone your tush, thighs, hips, arms, and abs while burning fat efficiently and blocking out the invasive anxieties of the real world, such as the lingering dread that squirrels are evolving faster than us and will soon overtake us on the food chain.
At Boca Fit Body boot camp, the enemy is predictability. Up to eight times a week, the instructors throw down a fresh guerrilla ambush’s worth of challenges for your muscles and your brain, fueling constant gains and keeping you engaged in supportive classes with an average of 10 to 12 participants. Over the course of a 45-minute session, you may run, jump, lift weights, slam out push-ups and chin-ups, chase chickens, punch slabs of beef, and end with a live crocodile wrestle.
