Sporting a wide expanse of wood floors and a swinging sound system, Synergy Fun + Fitness Center packs its 1,400-square-foot space with exercisers enjoying invigorating fitness classes. Experienced instructors lead shape-shifters through body-limbering basic yoga, and plumb the depths of relaxation with prop-assisted gentle yoga. Editions of calorie-singeing Zumba classes range from basic steps to kid-specific, allowing hip-swivelers of all ages and skill levels to get caught in a cyclonic fusion of Latin dance and global beats. Hotwire inner engines with cardio cross-training and step-cardio-mix classes, which keep tickers guessing by combining step aerobics, high- and low-impact kickboxing, and Zumba moves; or, students can remove Hong Kong wire-fu cables for the turbo kick class, which choreographs kickboxing routines inspired by tae kwon do, tai chi, and dance. Synergy Fun + Fitness Center holds classes seven days a week; check the schedule for a complete list of days and times.
The certified trainers at 300 Functional Fitness believe that exercises performed with the intent of unifying the muscles through a single movement lead not only to a chiseled physique, but also to a body conditioned for the rigors of daily life. Their quick and intense workouts begin with core movements that extend through the muscles and into the limbs. The intent is to build strength, endurance, flexibility, and balance without wasting energy through superfluous motions or excessive blinks. Class sizes are capped at a maximum of 20 students to ensure that instructors can check each pupil's form and adjust the routine based on individual ability levels. Their program is built from the nine foundational movements of lifting and include the air squat, front squat, overhead squat, shoulder press, push press, push jerk, dead lift, sumo dead-lift high pull, and medicine-ball cleans.
Several years ago, fitness fanatics Kalene Smith and Shannon Dykman came to the realization that traditional methods of personal training were lacking. So, in 2011, they took it upon themselves to transform the training approach. The result was GoTimeTraining, an 3,000-square foot studio where Kalene, Shannon, and their team of personal trainers reshape lives with personalized one-on-one lifestyle transformation programs, small group training, and bootcamp classes. But instead of relying on industry gimmicks, such as fad diets or pills that release helium into muscles, the GoTime team emphasizes a healthy, sustainable approach to improving overall lifestyle. It follows through with that mantra by packaging nutritional guidance and lifestyle coaching with every one of its fitness programs.
For the staff at AMP CrossFit BOX, fitness is a way of life. Four of the five professionals come from extensive military backgrounds, and the fifth played football for KSU before earning his master's in exercise science. Within the energetic atmosphere, the trainers push their students through drills such as lunges, ring dips, and deadlifts during the workout of the day, a constantly changing set of drills designed to target every major muscle cluster. They welcome students of various athletic backgrounds and tailor classes to different groups, from children learning coordination to expectant mothers learning to beat Rumpelstiltskin in an arm-wrestling match when the time comes.
No two people have the exact same fitness goals, so Omega Training’s staff of personal trainers—including former athletes and competitive bodybuilders—helps clients devise a workout regimen that suits their needs. Whether the workouts help build muscle tone, bolster endurance, increase flexibility, or facilitate weight loss, they can be accompanied by a personally tailored nutrition plan. In addition to the personal-training sessions, instructors also lead small group classes as well as boot-camp-style workouts.
