The gym can be an intimidating place for unexperienced exercisers, which is why Better Bodies introduced its Healthy Start training program. During the initial session, the staff uses a computer program called the Virtual Fitness Planner to reveal basic biometrics and calculate the likelihood of health risks such as type-2 diabetes. Once you're informed, you can take action by signing up for a personal-training session, attending a group-fitness class, or lifting on the fitness floor's Hammer Strength machines. For busy parents or particularly ripped nannies, Better Bodies also provides complimentary childcare services for members.
Every day at ELMNTL Fitness is different. Workouts that change daily keep participants engaged while also challenging different areas of the body, so as to safely build muscle and shed pounds without over-exerting specific physical zones. The program's functional exercises are based on everyday movements, to help condition the body to prevent injury and burn calories.
CrossFit the Tracks adheres to the belief that functional movements best support physical fitness. The facility is outfitted with all the necessary tools for workouts: barbells, hanging rings and ropes, rowing machines, kettlebells, giant tires, and 1-ounce dumbbells. CrossFit instructors guide clients through custom workouts that run throughout the week.
CrossFit doesn't just work out a one muscle per day, but every muscle. The program's foundation is Workout of the Day, which comprises a different blend of strength and cardio drills in each class. These sessions target new muscle groups and prevent workout-routine boredom. After an exercise review and a warm-up, students adapt the functional movements?which may include Olympic weightlifting, sprints, and medicine-ball tossing?appropriately to their fitness level. The routines pick up in intensity as the workout progresses, and a limited class size guarantees personal attention from a certified CrossFit level-one trainer. Click here for a workout schedule.

Students learn to set their own goals as they work toward higher ranks, and each session ends with a life-coaching talk that ties classwork to positive development and foundational values.
The inside of Blue Ash Strength & Conditioning looks like a jungle gym for adults.

Their exercises are designed to create well-rounded athletes, and everything that's done can be scaled to accommodate guests of all fitness levels.
