Bally enshrines exercise classes, calorie-burning equipment, and a fitness-focused staff within its sanctuaries of health. A 30-day membership includes access to a spread of group exercise classes, including Pilates, Reaction Cycling, and Step Fitness (class offerings vary by location). For self-guided worker-outers, cardio equipment such as treadmills, elliptical machines, cross-trainers, and stair climbers torch calories while entertaining the brain with video entertainment and integrated music systems that occasionally whisper quotes from Charles Atlas. Bally also boasts an array of strength machines, free weights, and small-apparatus equipment, and grants gym-goers access to on-site locker rooms, showers, and, at some locations, a pool and steam room. Visit each location's webpage for a list of specific amenities and the lineup of classes.
At DP Martial Arts Academy, master Doug Paik blends modern mixed martial arts fighting with the ancient study of traditional forms, or kata's. Students sample tae kwon do and haidong gumdo sword fighting skills with the fearsome striking skills of muay thai and krav maga. The academy's Brazilian jiu-jitsu program is helmed by Panamerican medalist Luigi Mondelli while MMA students sharpen their skills with instructors certified by the nationally recognized American Top Team.
Twin brothers and tae kwon do grandmasters Simon and James Kim have more than a birthday in common: both are seventh-dan black belts, have performed in movies and on ABC’s Wide World of Sports, and trained with the legendary ninth-dan black belt Tiger Kim starting at the age of 3. Today, at Tiger Twins Tae Kwon Do Academy, they lead tae kwon do programs for children and adults, and also offer classes in yoga and Zumba. Though their classes impart expert technical knowledge, they also foster intangible character traits, such as honesty, integrity, respect, and self-discipline.
