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.
Owned and operated by a family for families, Belle and Beau Fitness has something for everyone in the brood. Their private facility hosts more than 10 small-group classes for grown-ups, which range from yoga to African dance. Meanwhile, youngsters can cultivate healthy habits in fun fitness and dance classes designed just for them, such as Zumbatomics or kiddie boot camp.
In Village Fitness's 14,000-square-foot space, trainers whip clients into shape with group classes and personal-training sessions. The classes focus on fitness modalities ranging from BarreAmped to spinning to Tai Chi. The team's personal-training sessions, meanwhile, help clients achieve their fitness goals, whether they're focused on improving their sports performance or slimming down. The gym's saltwater pool, meanwhile, plays host to swimmers' practice laps, and the onsite café sates appetites with smoothies, protein bars, and other healthy staples.
The minds behind Doms Fitness want to get one thing straight: this is not a gym. Rather, the expansive indoor facility is home to a group-fitness and personal-training studio. Here, instructors lead pupils through non-intimidating sessions, where a small class size allows them to focus on form and technique. Weight benches, plyo machines and boxes, jump ropes, tires, kettlebells, and stability balls fuel the workouts, designed to cater to each client's individual needs and goals. On occasion, weight-loss and health challenges take clients outdoors where they take in the fresh air and push their bodies to new limits. And once the workout is over, the talented trainers turn their sights toward nutrition, counseling on dietary choices and introducing students to the principles of intuitive eating.
The Harbison Community Association provides a venue for community members to work out and form bonds with their neighbors. The center maintains an indoor heated pool, a jacuzzi, and a baby pool. Members can build strength in the weight room and challenge their friends to a game on the racquetball court.
The 2,000-square-foot space at Z Factor Dance & Fitness Studio harbors rhythmic movements during classes and occasional events. Instructors walk students through the dance steps of ballet, hip-hop, or jazz traditions until their feet are as finely tuned as Elvis's vocal cords. Zumba, kickboxing, and yoga sessions blast physiques with full-body workouts, including Zumbatomic for kids and Zumba Gold for adults over the age of 55. The studio's sound system floods the dance floor with requisite tunes and the mirrors provide dancers with rough sketches of potential doppelgängers.
