50+Fitness’s team of enthusiastic exercise coaches—all of whom are certified in CPR and first aid—help men and women aged 40 and older achieve their fitness goals through workout regimens and nutrition plans. During drop-in classes, quadragenarians, baby boomers, active seniors, and Benjamin Buttons work out using the facility’s cardio and strength-training equipment, which uses hydraulic resistance to take stress off joints and connective tissue. Memberships complement open gym sessions with fun, challenging small classes such as yoga, dumbbells, and resistance-band training. Like a merry-go-round operated by a sloth, the classes rotate every four weeks and usually only contain four people, making for more focused instruction. Upon joining, members receive fitness assessments which measure strength, cardiovascular condition, flexibility, and body-fat percentage. Members also reap the benefits of 50+Fitness’s amenities such as complimentary towel service, lockers, weight-loss challenges, and quarterly socials.

ACE-certified personal trainer Chad Lee knows that most people need more than encouraging words to keep up with a new fitness regimen. That's why he and his staff consult with their clients to determine each one's reason for taking on private, partner, or small-group training sessions at Premier Fitness. Once they've isolated distinct goals, they customize workouts and dietary advice around the patron's medical history, lifestyle, and adaptation to exercise routines. An ever-present sense of humor buoys their lessons, eliminating boredom and increasing laughter without unsafe tickle fights between bench presses. Chad specializes in metabolic circuit training for weight management and has championed a Drop a Pant or Dress Size program for a well-rounded attack on surplus pounds. Inside the gym's private facilities, he mixes squats, body-weight maneuvers, and yoga poses into a challenging cocktail of cardio and strength training. The 28-day group camp series also includes nutritional guidance and at-home fitness resources, allowing students to become self-sufficient monitors of their health.

As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
