At CrossFit Augusta, located inside Quantum Academy, seeing people give it their all is the standard, not the exception. It?s not uncommon to see someone hop onto a pull-up bar, rapidly perform a number of kipping pull-ups, drop down, walk over to a barbell, rapidly perform a number of front squats, return to the pull-up bar, and repeat the cycle. The exhausting series of exercises is typical among CrossFit?s workout of the day, because it uses functional movements, such as squatting, pushing, pulling, and waving hello to strangers. Yet a friendly, inviting atmosphere is maintained throughout, which helps those getting back into fitness find their groove. A seasoned staff of CrossFit coaches is always on hand to assist members in maintaining proper form and staying motivated.
Gloria Hamilton earned her nicknames—"The Hammer" and "Drill Sergeant"—the hard way: by serving 20 years in the US Military. Throughout much of her distinguished career, she trained new recruits for the rigors of military life. She also operated a pregnancy and post-partum training program for female soldiers.
Gloria brings her enthusiasm for total-body health to Divine Fitness for Life, where she coaches clients to meet their weight-loss goals through personal-training and boot-camp sessions. She uses measurements and simple fitness tests to track each clients' progress while motivating them to maintain a positive attitude in the face of a challenge.
Quantum Fitness may span 40,000 square feet, but there's barely an inch to spare. That's because 100 cardio machines—each equipped with a TV—occupy a good portion of it. And then there are the areas dedicated to group fitness classes such as yoga and spinning. Plus, set-apart rooms hold the nursery and childcare spaces, steam room and sauna, and executive locker rooms with massage chairs and pool tables.
The Omni Club and Omni Health and Fitness have been Augusta's premier health, fitness and wellness choice for over 10 years. We continue to provide the largest clubs with the most variety of amenities, classes, luxury and service in the CSRA region.
The Ultimate Ride whips its clients into muscle-rippling and heart-fortifying shape with an eclectic schedule of exhilarating group fitness classes. Cyclo-philes can tone their calves in traditional spin classes as well as virtual rides classes, which feature cinematic projections of open roads winding through exotic locations such as Hawaii, Italy, and the Rockies, where wild bicycles still roam free. The Spin Flex class comprises a hybrid of cycling and full-body workout activities, and the Zumba dance-fitness class energizes and conditions clients for upcoming macarena marathons. Aspiring crew paddlers and rowboat chauffeurs can beef up with Indo-Row classes, which provide an extensive workout using indoor rowing machines. The Ultimate Ride clients need only bring a towel, a bottle of water, and—if necessary for motivation—a book filled with inspirational limericks.
