Members won't find a sea of machines inside Adaptive Fitness Warehouse. Instead, trainers whip bodies into shape with such fitness items as kettlebells, free weights, ropes, and heavy sleds weighed down with leftover Christmas presents. Adaptive Fitness's trainers can also customize workouts during personal and small-group training sessions, and adapt exercises to each individual?s physical ability during rigorous boot-camp classes.
Fitness studio owner and licensed Zumba instructor Monica James wants to share her passion for Zumba with everyone she meets. Having lost 60 pounds with Zumba and gained renewed energy and a zest to help others along the way, she opened JIGY Monica's Fitness Studio, where energetic Latin beats fuse with simple-to-learn cardio dance moves to make each Zumba class feel more like a dance party than a workout. During each session, clients dance off calories and unwanted inches in a vibrant, party-like environment of nightclub. Students can take classic Zumba, or parents can bring kids ages 4–12 to ZumbAtomic sessions for introductory fitness sessions. Little ones may also sit on the sidelines and explore the Kid Cave area while parents bring on the burn. Within viewing distance of the class space, the Kid Cave brims with toys, games, and puzzles to keep them occupied throughout parental workouts. All students are reminded to wear comfortable workout clothes and bring plenty of water to class.
While Christine smiles every time a client announces another drop in pant size, she is more proud of helping people lower their blood pressure levels and stabilize their blood sugar levels. Motivating people to transform their health on the inside versus how they look on the outside is why Christine opened her own fitness studio, Christine?s Cardio Fitness. She and a crew of certified Zumba instructors help students dance their way into better health with easy-to-follow routines set to high-energy tunes and yodelers in classes like Zumba Fitness, Zumba Toning, Zumba Sentao, Zumba Step, and Zumba Gold. Not wanting anyone to miss out on the fun of Zumba, Christine also offers a free class on Saturdays for kids during the summer months.
Ladies Workout Asheville's supportive, attentive staff help women navigate the facility's full exercise circuit, packed schedule of workout classes, and other body-bettering amenities such as tanning beds and nutrition counseling. Members and pass holders can tone tired muscles while shaking their hips in a Zumba class, tackle cardio and strength machines sized specifically for women's bodies, or channel their disdain for punching bags during group kickboxing lessons. After each workout, a thermal massage on a Migun bed relaxes weary muscles, and the sweat-sapping far-infrared sauna evicts toxins from the skin and lifts voodoo stress curses. Ladies Workout Asheville also offers fitness programs for kids at Cardio Kids.
