LA Boxing offers fitness classes in boxing, kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, and mixed martial arts. The proprietary style of the LA Boxing workout is a mixture of genuine fight training, engaging fitness, and stronger-than-Earth gravity. Quasi-boxers and martial artists can burn from 800 to more than 1,000 calories during these total-body routines, which combine external inspiration and jukes, jabs, and kicks. Both men and women are welcome in the ring, where they'll learn new techniques and methods to blissfully break into a sweat in an energetic group setting. Gloves are provided during the month-long trial membership, as are a set of reusable pro-quality hand wraps and complimentary motivational mumbling from Mickey Goldmill (all three subject to availability).
The meaning behind the name of Niyama Yoga Studio is twofold. Founder Nicole Zornitzer wanted to pay homage to yama studios in Maryland, where she completed her training with renowned yoga guru Diane Finlayson. But the deeper significance of the Sanskrit word, which translates to "observance," involves the way individuals conduct themselves on a personal level, and how their behavior affects others. Nicole not only wishes to introduce people to the many benefits of yoga, which can include decreased blood pressure, improved range of motion, and the ability to nimbly slice a bundt cake without removing it from the back of the refrigerator, but also aims to enhance clients' mind-body connection and self-awareness. Nicole shares her knowledge as a certified children’s yoga instructor (CCYT) and certified prenatal yoga instructor (CPYT), and directs a teacher-training program in which the majority of her current staff completed their yoga education. She has also worked with professional athletes and is the official yoga instructor for Livingston Public Schools. In addition to a schedule of private and group yoga classes, the studio offers yoga-therapy sessions that include a body-type analysis and chakra work. The instructors customize each class to meet the needs of the students in attendance, using music that swells from soothingly calm to lively and energetic. The studio features a mural painted by local artist and class participant Ilene Skara.
UFC Gym is not a standard fitness center playing dress-up as a boxing studio—its pugilists hit away at 150-pound punching bags while wearing 16-ounce gloves and bobbing and weaving on high-impact floors, and don't have to share space with dance-aerobics classes—but neither is it the dank boxing gym of yesteryear.
Alongside the high-quality boxing equipment in the brightly lit gym are free weights and cardio and strength machines to mold a well-rounded fighter. In addition to boxing, trainers, most of whom have amateur or professional fighting experience, teach muay thai kickboxing, mixed martial arts, kids' self-defense classes, and personal training.
Certified trainers mix and match weight training, core strengthening, metabolic conditioning, interval training, and kettlebell exercises to maximize the benefits of each workout at Solution Fitness. Personal-training sessions focus on one person’s specific fitness goals, while adult and youth small-group sessions provide a supportive environment. The experts also offer nutritional coaching to aid in weight loss and healthier eating with sample meal plans.
A new mom, Lisa Druxman was determined to continue exercising despite the demands of motherhood. Her solution: make pushing her son's stroller part of the workout. More new moms soon joined her, following Lisa's routine of stroller pushing, cardio, and strength exercises that required only a resistance band. Her idea continued blossoming, and today, more than 300 Stroller Strides franchisees lead classes in 43 states.
