At Fitness Together, getting fit involves getting focused and fired up to achieve. Here, certified personal trainers guide clients of all skill levels through motivating boot-camps and exercise programs designed to meet goals loftier than a giraffe’s basketball hoop. To help their charges torch calories and tone muscles as efficiently as possible, the trainers incorporate evidence-based training methods, such as intervals, tempos, and fartlek, into each fitness regimen. Filled with cardio challenges and resistance training, workouts are tailored to individual needs and paired with nutrition tips that help the body build lean muscle. In-studio sessions take place in a private, spa-like studio, flush with energizing red walls and functional training tools such as medicine balls, kettlebells, and gymnastics rings.
It's tough to make Zumba—a dance-inspired cardio workout set to upbeat music—feel any more festive. Still, the certified instructors at Vital Spark Fitness & Wellness Studio have found a way. They host Night Style Zumba classes, turning on the studio's black lights and donning neon bracelets that outline arms as they wave in time with twirls and steps. Along with Zumba's resonating beats, the experience lends the studio a pumping, nightclub vibe.
Even without black lights and glow sticks, though, the staff strives to make every type of workout an engaging one. The schedule includes more than one take on popular yoga and Pilates techniques, including PiYo and Yogalates. They also lead cardio-kickboxing drills, boot-camp routines, and the interval-training exercises of Tabata.
Although the top priority at Evolutionary Sports is to help others get into shape, the facility aims far beyond that by creating an environment that makes every guest, member, and first-time exerciser feel part of something bigger. To accomplish its mission, the business offers group workouts, personal training, and a full slate of classes at two different facilities. Those classes range from boot camp and yoga to karate and cross training, which fuses kickboxing techniques, cardio drills, and weight training into one intense session.
A positive attitude pervades curriculum at True Reflections Dance & Fitness. Inspirational quotes and bright colors dominate the walls of the lobby, and as they pirouette across the sprung floor, kids develop motor skills, cognition, and self-confidence. Classes for grownups are available, too, and these programs feature the same supportive atmosphere and positivity that makes kids' classes here so special.
B.I.A. Fitness's goal is simple: to help clients take charge of their health and their lives. To aid them, the gym's staff leads personal-training sessions and fitness classes in such disciplines as dance-inspired Zumba and spinning. Their facility also houses treadmills, elliptical trainers, free weights, and circuit machines for solo workouts.
The trainers of Be Fit Performance, Inc. never fit in at big, corporate gyms, where, they felt, clients' needs often got lost in the hustle. So they decided to create an environment that values personal relationships and depth of training over the quantity of training. During one-on-one personal training sessions, they help students of all levels build strength and burn fat, with regular health assessments to measure their progress. They also challenge groups with high-intensity Be Fit eXtreme fitness classes.
