The women inside the FEMforce boxing ring might throw hundreds of punches, but they aren't fighting each other. They're too busy sweating through kickboxing routines side by side, which is the same way they perform push-ups, box jumps, and kettlebell lifts. Their collective determination fuels the female-only boot-camp session, even though they might all be pursuing different goals. Some hope to lose weight, whereas others want to tone their arms, or develop flat, hard abs without having to ingest a hardcover dictionary.
The path to these achievements begins with a private physical assessment. During this time, one of coach Lucas's fitness consultants meets with each camper to determine what particular challenges she'll face and what results she desires. Students then tackle the fitness regimen at their own pace, modifying it as they go if need be.
Master Gym’s training facility houses circuit weight stations, elliptical machines, and other high-quality cardio equipment. Members can work up a sweat following their own routine, or they can join in on one of the regularly scheduled classes. Zumba classes burn calories with fun dance routines set to Latin-inspired music, and cardio-kickboxing sessions help tone muscles using a series of jabs, hooks, and other boxing moves. Master Gym also offers boot-camp sessions, which mix a variety of exercises to build strength and endurance.
Led by licensed aesthetician Debra Delaney, The Jungle Club’s permanent-makeup office imprints faces with a resilient look similar to that of temporary makeup. During the 60-minute process, Debra gently inserts colored pigment of the client’s choice into the skin, creating feature accentuations that will not rub off while showering, swimming, or fleeing Viking marauders at the mall. The digital precision of the permanent-makeup procedure leaves brows and eyeliner areas looking natural and ensures each patient’s safety. The calm water and lush greenery surrounding The Jungle Club evoke images of a remote woodland getaway or a tiger’s dining room.
A workout routine is vulnerable to falling into just that—a routine. But with her women’s-only outdoor boot camps, coach Allison Reynolds stomps out the flickering embers of boredom, leading groups of ladies through intense, total-body sessions that, like siblings, are never identical. Sometimes, Allison sets classes amid the breezy shores of a lake; other times, students scale the ramps of a parking garage. No matter the locale, Allison’s workouts typically feature heavy doses of sprints, calisthenics, stairs, and a medley of other conditioning exercises.
Hard Exercise Works helps clients improve their physical health with intense total-body workout regimens for all fitness levels and sage nutrition advice within a supportive fitness community. Dedicated coaches push attendees to reach their goals in classes that accommodate up to 50 students, ensuring pupils' safety by demonstrating proper technique. Each workout consists of an ever-changing sequence of intense exercises, intended to improve strength and stamina over a five-week period. In addition to a vigorous fitness regimen, the gym's nutrition philosophy promotes well-being outside of class sessions by either prescribing a five-week diet for students or teaching them how to photosynthesize their own food.
