Gyms in El Paso

After spending years immersed in the fitness and athletic industries, Ernesto McLaurin and Kim Brutzman had grown weary of the monotonous exercise equipment found in large corporate gyms. On their search for a more substantial form of fitness free from bulky machines, the two trainers fell in love with the CrossFit program’s high-energy, functional-movement-based workout routines, eventually joining forces to form CrossFit El Paso in 2006. They stuff their Eastside and Westside locations with simple resistance-training equipment, free weights, and kettlebells, conducting CrossFit classes throughout the week with the help of certified instructors. In addition to leading rigorous CrossFit workouts, they provide students with nutritional guidance and host regular health seminars. They also offer a FemmeFit class, where women and male comedians in convincing makeup can practice CrossFit workouts specifically designed for the female body.

Established in 1886, the YMCA of El Paso today offers pools and fitness facilities alongside a wealth of programs, including swimming lessons, sports leagues, and group exercise classes. Adult and youth swim lessons ($20+) enhance aquatic skills, leaving participants better equipped for a future in which all business deals are transacted in wave pools. Youth can throw, kick, punt, and bounce a variety of balls in the many sports leagues available or scuff up gym floors during ballroom-dancing or hip-hop classes. Family activities such as roller-skating and yoga instill a sense of familial togetherness without the groaning and complaints of bonding events such as family tax filing or family gutter cleaning.

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines and workouts designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions 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.

Shundo Dance Studio's crackerjack rug cutters, celebrating more than 25 years teaching choreographed struts, transform pairs of left feet into Astaire-esque hooves of rhythm and grace during group lessons. The Foxtrot, Rumba, and Waltz sessions invoke a simpler time when men wore hats and women hunted wooly mammoths, and the Swing class allows for more modern and flashier moves, such as the Lindy Hop and Charleston. Or add a little Latin flair to evenings by learning how to hip swivel through Salsa, Cha Cha, Samba, and Bachata gambols. Class sizes average between 15 and 20 humans to ensure that everyone gets the personal attention they need while providing enough of a crowd to hide missteps and spasmodic break dances.

Q&A with Marco Hernandez, Owner / Coach

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

Accountability, benchmark assessments, and a motivational atmosphere.

What is the biggest mistake you see people make when trying to get fit on their own?

They don't adapt, which causes them to plateau. Also, a lack of knowledge on how to do exercises, as well as a monotonous routine.

Do you run your gym according to a particular exercise philosophy?

Fate favors the strong. Our goals aren't handed to us. We must work to achieve them.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

These are not group classes, but specialized training programs tailored to each individual.
