Practice Yoga’s friendly, enthusiastic instructors are fully certified and know how to help students sweat and stretch until they're calmer, more energized, and more revitalized than the 217 rechargeable AA batteries that power Greater America. If you're new to yoga, this is a great chance to learn the downward dog, the upward dog, and the omniscient narrator. Practice Yoga offers several classes, including Vinyasa and its intense linking of movements as well as the more atmospheric candlelight yoga. With more than 28 weekly offerings, Practice Yoga’s convenient schedule offers plenty of opportunities for drop-ins to partake in a stretchy workout. Courtesy policies ensure that each yoga session is a tranquil experience free of feral animals and flying shuriken.
Pointe Fitness cobbles bodies into sturdy, muscle machines with 21,000 square feet teeming with free weights, cardio equipment, and one half of a basketball court. Skilled instructors guide students through cardio workouts, yoga sessions, and Zumba dance-offs, while specialized women's fitness programs promote healthy lifestyles with one-on-one teaching and inspiring group support. During breaks from chiseling physiques in the circuit training space, or building up enough core strength on the rowing machines to start a transatlantic canoe club, Moe⎯the business's canine mascot⎯frolics with guests to keep spirits high.
At its parent-child workshops, Arts & Scraps instructors demonstrate to parents how materials that might otherwise be thrown away can instead be used to pique children's creativity and imagination. Parents and children work side-by-side, creating fun projects with provided materials. Instructors also give parents handouts with ideas for more projects that families can create together at home. Additionally, parent-child duos can visit the ScrapMobile bus to find more materials to take home for creating projects for fun, learning experiences for both.
Charter Fitness encourages exercise sleuths of all ages and fitness levels to uncover toned silhouettes in a television-lined strength training and cardio center. Before embarking on a journey to a world of muscle, Charter Fitness' experienced staff members can demonstrate the safest way to use the equipment. After that, guests roam the facility in search of stretching and core-training zones stocked with mats, medicine balls, and stability balls, which prepare the body to balance on tight ropes or wobbly garden hoses. Charter's clean, modern facilities are equipped with personal showers, locker rooms, and tanning booths (where available, prices vary) for pampering fatigued physiques. Personal training is available for an extra fee.
