The certified personal trainers at SuperSlow Zone provide one-on-one coaching to get bodies toned up with slow, targeted workouts. This deal gets you a full-body consultation to assess your fitness needs, as well as four 20-minute personal training sessions that can be easily dovetailed into any hardwood schedule ledger. During each workout, you'll perform a series of weightlifting exercises, working your legs, shoulders, and arms through slow and steady repetition that will really tick off the harried, quick-to-judge hares so common in the general population. Holding each rep for long lengths fatigues muscles and improves your metabolic rate, thereby burning fat. Moving quickly from machine to machine provides an invigorating workout and keeps routines from falling down the vertical slip 'n' slide of stagnancy. Resting for days in between each session may help bodies rebound for improved joint motion and reduced lower back pain. Inside the state-of-the-art SuperSlow facility, air swirls around burning biceps while cooling fans dissipate heat for a climatically comfortable fitness environment. This slow-mo muscle-building method has been recommended by celebrities like Brad Pitt and Barbara Walters, who prefer to workout facing each other, synchronizing their breathing and encouraging each other with sustained eye contact.

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were accidentally installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circle of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies, promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use each lady’s body weight and unique fitness level to create resistance that matches her abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions can create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

Little Feather Ranch is owner and manager Teri Hallman’s equine oasis amid the verdant expanse of Eagle, Idaho. There, horses trot outdoors in cool summer breezes and prance around the insulated indoor arena all through the year. A nearby 5-mile trail allows visitors to explore Eagle Island State Park on guided horseback rides.
Accredited by the Certified Horsemanship Association, Teri imparts riding skills in both Western and English styles. English riding entails a lighter saddle and more direct control over the horse’s reins, whereas the Western style requires a larger saddle, lax one-handed rein control, and an encyclopedic knowledge of John Wayne quotes. Little Feather’s boarding service treats horses to attentive care and a supply of grass and alfalfa hay grown onsite. While at the ranch, riders can peruse a line of exclusive handmade leather bags, Western shirts, and hat bands.
