Lead coaches Chris and Jenny Swisher tried working out with P90X?and ended up losing 30 and 25 pounds, respectively. Those dropped pounds changed their lives, inspiring them to open RevolutionX?a small class-based gym that adheres to a supportive and encouraging environment. Chris and Jenny guide groups through Insanity classes, a max interval-training workout that flows from aerobic to anaerobic exercises for maximum benefits. Also included in their class arsenal are P90X workouts, which uses muscle confusion and introduces new moves to prevent a body plateau. They also offer a training program?RunRevolution?for clients prepping for everything from a 5K to a marathon. The unique combination of P90X, Insanity, and 5K training is designed to help clients uncover their inner athletes, drop pounds, and train for races. No matter the client's goal, RevolutionX personalizes clients' workout plans to help those goals be met.
Unlike a typical 5K or even a marathon, no one person completes an entire Athena Relay Race. Instead, the race is broken up into legs, which can range from 2.5-9 miles or more. Teams determine their own pace, and can start earlier or later in the day according to how fast they can move. It's up to the team to motivate each other throughout the course, which makes the relay race a perfect way to bond with friends and family, or show up childhood enemies.
When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. MetaBody created a real-life version of that ticket with the MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.
Runners embarking on the Honky Tonk Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5K won't need headphones to hear twangy country tunes. That’s because the hilly Wisconsin Dells course features live bands and DJs along the route to keep participants energized as they race toward the finish line. The party-like atmosphere doesn’t end with the race, as a full-blown celebration complete with food, beer, and line dancing awaits runners and their family and friends. Aside from age-group awards for the top three males and females in each race, finish-line gifts include a Honky Tonk cowboy hat and goodie bag for all participants, a finisher-medal buckle for marathoners and half marathoners, and an ice bath for those who decided to pogo stick the entire 26.2 miles. The Honky Tonk marathon and half-marathon course is USA Track & Field certified and is also a Boston Marathon qualifier.
This winter, the streets will fill with red, white, and beard. That's because Santa Hustle 5K makes its way to cities across the country, inviting runners and walkers alike to dress as Old St. Nick. Each participant receives a Santa hat, Santa beard, and Dri-FIT hoodie as they tread the pavement to raise money for a different charity in each city. Post-race, participants can kick-start their holiday cheer at an after-party filled with treats, music, and festive decorations.
The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
