Foster City Athletic Club’s 15,000-square-foot fitness emporium houses a stable of health-enhancing amenities to facilitate regular workouts and hasten patrons’ progress toward holistic health. Dedicated personal trainers help patrons turn dormant sweat glands into perspiration and molten Frito geysers with two individually tailored, 45-minute workout regimens. Additionally, a customized health assessment nudges customers toward fitness excellence, enabling them to identify shortcomings and then vanquish them with prescribed exercises and a custom nutrition program. During membership intervals, fitness fiends can sculpt muscles inside the cycling studio or don a pair of goggles for an afternoon of racquetball. Afterward, a steam room or jacuzzi soothes muscles and ornery backhands. For more populous sweat-pouring sessions, a bevy of group fitness programs streamlines paths to presidential physical fitness awards, and the studio’s full-size basketball court provides an apropos arena to hone jump shots or net-cutting skills.
When Forrest Folen says he believes in a mind-and-body approach to fitness, he isn’t referring to pseudo-spiritual workouts. Rather, he is drawing from the simple advice given to him by his grandmother: “Take care of your body, and your body will take care of your mind. Take care of your mind, and your mind will take care of your life.” His partner Roy Schuhmacher, on the other hand, comes at fitness from a strictly physical angle. Fueled by a personal goal to become a bodybuilder when he was younger, he turned to scientific methods and empirical data to craft his regimens. This research eventually led him to the slow and steady approach to bulking up that he uses today. In 2008, both Folen and Schuhmacher joined forces, bringing their unique mix of perspectives and exercise approaches to the public at Fit for Life Solutions.
Through their studio, the two trainers slim bodies with large group boot-camp sessions, tame waistlines with Next Level personal training, and accelerate heart rates during intensive small group exercises that incorporate kettlebells and industrial-grade defibrillators.
Fitness industry veteran Dulcinea Lee Hellings's goal is to bring a high-quality, effective exercise regimen to people who don't love big gyms or can't afford personal trainers. In 2004, she realized that mornings could be used for more than hitting the snooze button over and over for two hours, and founded Boot Camp "Morning Crunch!" to help fledgling exercisers whip into shape.
She designs her all-levels programs to be scream-free morning motivators⎯the first stop in her patrons' journey of daily accomplishments. The fast-paced, ever-changing circuit of strength and cardio exercises keeps bodies guessing and minds from becoming bored. Each of the boot camp's 12 outdoor locations has a different dedicated trainer who gets to know each student personally, remembering their names and memorizing any interesting freckle patterns. They complement their morning routines with a smattering of evening options for those who prefer to work out after the day's activities.
Butterfly Yoga's staff channels its experience and love of movement through the practice of yoga. Butterfly's courses encourage students of all experience levels to get fit, build self-awareness, and increase their ability to out-maneuver bendy straws. With an emphasis on a supportive environment and compassionate guidance, instructors seek to inspire self-exploration through movement and meditation. Additionally, Butterfly Yoga holds donations-based classes periodically each month to share yoga with more people in the community.
