Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
There is nothing more motivational than results. Every six weeks, we offer clients a fitness assessment so we can objectively see the results they are getting. Scheduling appointments also helps with accountability and ensures that they will stick with a routine.
Do you believe in the maxim, "No pain, no gain?? Why or why not?
Define "pain." Everyone perceives pain differently?to some, the muscle burn often felt during exercise counts as pain, while others don't view it as painful. Basically, mild discomfort and burning sensations in the muscles are OK, while sharp stabbing pains or anything felt within a joint is not.
Sweating to the oldies is acceptable, but sweating to the blues less so. Do you find that certain styles and genres of music generate more intense workouts?
Generally yes, but different people get motivated by different kinds of music. That's why we offer SiriusXM, which enables us to change the station to fit the moods and personalities of the clients we are training at any given time.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We have two primary distinguishers. First of all, we are the area's only fully-private personal training facility. And second, we are the only ones who utilize proprietary fitness programming systems?Aspire8, Cardio Together, and Nutrition Together?to help clients get results.
Paul Carson and Jack Banks started teaching fitness classes 30 years ago in a small abandoned dairy. Since those humble beginnings, they built Malibu Fitness—a modern gym where they help people build rippling muscles. Their trained group fitness instructors lead classes in yoga and Pilates, as well as more high-energy Zumba classes that set Latin dance moves to international tunes. Meanwhile, you’ll hop on a stationary bike for the spinning classes, which rely on intense climbs and sprints to elevate heart rates and burn calories. There’s also the option of one-on-one workouts with personal trainers, who can tailor workouts that shed girth, strengthen muscles, and improve athletic performance.
There are a number of nice bonus amenities at Malibu Fitness—it has flat-screen TVs, locker rooms, and a SunDome stand-up tanning booth. And if you’re hungry after a workout, there’s a shake bar that doles out Island Oasis protein shakes. The well-staffed team here even provides child care. And each year around Thanksgiving, the owners sponsor a road race that donates thousands of dollars to charities to offset America's turkey footprint.
We are a results proven company from top to bottom. All of us at one point decided to make a change and the CrossFit community helped us. We provide a judgment free environment with no mirrors or crazy machines that take a manual to figure out how to operate.
For many, maintaining a healthy fitness regimen is an off-putting chore on par with cleaning the garage or assembling that backyard roller coaster for the kids. The folks behind Snap Fitness, who now boast locations all over the world, are of the opinion that this doesn't have to be the case. They believe seven-day access to premium cardio and strength-training equipment, innovative easyFIT monitors to track personal progress, and perpetual guidance from certified professionals can help transform physical fitness into an accessible activity that yields measurable and tangible results. In addition to providing online workout rubrics and meal plans, they work to keep sweat glands up and running by offering workout rewards programs, making regular check-in calls, and measuring bodies—sans padded muscle suits—every 30 days.
Rowing is one of the few exercises that burns calories, works the entire body, and isn't rough on the joints?so it makes sense that it's the only workout that's offered at Power 10 Indoor Rowing Center. Inside this state-of-the-art facility, seasoned coaches teach adults and youths how to row during a range of programs. For obsessional rowers, the facility is also equipped with Concept 2 ergometer machines and a Swingulator, a virtual-race rowing simulator that cannot be won with a little cheat code like Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start.
The attentive trainers of Core Studio sculpt bodies and impart fitness-focused wisdom within an intimate, boutique-style facility.
