The sledgehammer slams the earth with a resounding thud before being discarded for a game of toss-back with a medicine ball. Such training methods are but a small slice of the workout routine possibilities at Black Label CrossFit. CrossFit—an innovative strengthening and conditioning program that veers away from using traditional muscle-training apparatuses—has even gained popularity among the training programs of police academies, military special-operations units, and high-profile federal agents who yearn to get better at hopscotch.
On any given day, the training team provides students with new routines based on a combination of Olympic sports, gymnastics activities, and metabolic conditioning that may include moves such as sprinting with barbells, pull-ups, or inverted rowing. By changing things up all the time, trainers hope to inspire participants to remain engaged and feel challenged to always bring their best effort to improving their health and wellness. Each session is also timed and scored, encouraging students to keep aiming higher.
The certified and degreed trainers of Body Evolution don't judge themselves by their personal accomplishments, but by their clients' results. Body Evolution trainers know that every person is mentally and physically different, so no single fitness approach will work for everyone. Trainers Vince Hogue and Tristen Hines also adhere to this principle, and use their experience to draft workout regimes that inspire clients, nurture their health, and reduce daydreams of owning a house made of Twinkies. To ensure he continues to give clients an optimal workout, ACE nationally recognized and CPR/AED-certified trainer Walt Fleitz regularly attends seminars and studies new methods. His favorite quote from Maya Angelou sums up his beliefs the best: "People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
As one of the largest ballroom-dance studios in Kentucky, All That Dance is home to more than just ballroom—Latin, swing, Zumba, and belly dancing are all part of the schedule's multitudinous monthly classes. Each class takes place on the enormous dance floor and is led by a professional dance teacher with years of experience turning timid meerkat-steppers into bold fox-trotters. Dancers of all ages and skill levels are welcome, making the studio as all-inclusive as a convention for carbon-based life forms.
An active member of the local healthcare community, Jeffersontown Medical?s Doctor of Chiropractic Neil Langschied speaks and presents on topics such as fibromyalgia, industrial safety, and stress. He teaches people how to improve golf performance by adjusting their swing and informs them that continuing to teach the neighborhood kids how to slam dance will likely result in neck pain and stiffness.
He further educates patients at the clinic, showing them that a combination of chiropractic care and progressive rehab is best for targeting both the joints and the muscular system. This approach can relieve symptoms of a number of ailments, including carpal tunnel, migraines, and scoliosis.
