Nowadays, the term “martial arts” conjures up images of flashy Hollywood kicks, championship trophies, and prismatic collections of ranked belts. Many often forget, however, that the martial arts are tools for self-defense. The instructors at McKenzie Martial Arts eschew the glamour and instead focus on teaching students how to protect themselves, encouraging participation from the entire family. They lead kids, teens, and adults through a range of disciplines, including Bruce Lee’s street-level jeet kune do, Gracie jujitsu, and weapon-centric Filipino kali and escrima. During each lesson, they’ll equip students with gloves and padded weapons and let them put their newfound skills to use in a ring or mat-covered training room. Family members, meanwhile, can watch their kin square off by meditating to the point of omnipresence or simply nabbing a spot in the comfortable viewing area.
The corporal coaches at CrossFit from the Ashes lead individual or small-group sessions composed of heart-pumping cardio and strength-training routines. Designed around the 10 cornerstones of physical health, CrossFit training enhances the heart’s ability to tick and strengthens various muscle groups for improved flexibility, agility, and bear-wrestling skills. Weightlifting gracefully converges with nimble gymnastic movements and fast-paced cardio throughout each session, with instructors guiding clients through circuits of drills, such as back extensions followed by rowing or push-ups and sit-ups complemented by sprints. Athletes complete each session within the confines of CrossFit’s spacious warehouse gym that was initially zoned for painting to-scale models of Manhattan. Currently sessions are scheduled on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays during the afternoon and evening.
Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic-resistance machines that have been designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use gym-goers' own body weights, fitness levels, and aerodynamic water bottles to create resistance that matches 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.
