Voted best physical therapy clinic in Valley Advocate's 2011 Best of The Valley Readers' Poll, Attain Therapy + Fitness trains and conditions members to help burn fat, build muscle, and improve athletic performance. A team of skilled trainers with extensive experience in sports and personal conditioning motivate customers in a well-maintained workout facility, which includes Olympic lifting platforms, squat racks, balance-boosting slide boards, Keiser performance equipment, and life-size Rube Goldberg machines. During the one-hour adult strength and conditioning classes held every weekday morning and evening, plus Saturday mornings, a skilled coach guides pupils through a foam roll massage, static stretches, and dynamic warm-ups to facilitate blood flow and decrease the risk of injury. Participants can turbocharge metabolism with boot-camp-style circuit training, which, like a boulder-toting ballet, mixes energetic aerobic movement with power-based exertion.

Certified personal trainer Amy Goodwin's mission is to help people enjoy getting fit. As a mom of three energetic daughters, she knows it's not always easy to make time for a workout, and she admits that it takes dedication and discipline to reach fitness goals. She strives to make fitness accessible with a variety of group classes, ranging from stress-relieving yoga sessions to total-body RIPPED workouts, which engage the entire body more effectively than dragging a 200-pound ball and chain everywhere you go. During personal-training sessions, she merges functional movements with training tools such as free weights, kettlebells, and TRX suspension bands. Her training style also includes mixed martial-arts moves, plyometric training, and stability exercises.
Velocity Bootcamp's clients torch calories, whittle waists, and tone muscles during 30-minute boot-camp workouts. Consisting of bodyweight exercises such as suspension training and plyometrics, the small group workouts take place in a supportive, non-intimidating atmosphere. For convenience, the staff schedules up to 20 classes per week, including 6 a.m. classes for early birds who want to get the worm and then sling it several hundred yards. The personal trainers also help clients outside the gym by offering them easy-to-follow nutrition guidelines.
