Certified yoga instructor Kelly Elliott has been uncovering the depth of her strength, body awareness, and spirituality since she first discovered yoga in 1994, a time when the Internet wasn't around to point people to their new pastimes or virtual dog-food bazaars. This longtime practice has helped alleviate the pain caused by her scoliosis and lower-back problems, and she enthusiastically shares yoga’s healing benefits with her students through Vinyasa, gentle, and basic yoga classes. Fellow instructors Tina Garcia, who completed her teacher training in early 2012, and Sonya Bergeron, who has been practicing for over 15 years, join Kelly in her practice and help students of all ages and abilities forge strong connections between mind and body while marrying breath with movement through a continuous flow of postures. The studio also benefits from the instruction of Elena Hebert, who teaches yoga to help others find strength, awareness, and peace, and Xenia Kempf, whose classes promote flexibility and physical and mental balance.
Master-certified trainer Joe Ramirez’s ample experience and endless support for his fitness clientele caught the eye of the Gazette, which named him 2014’s Best Trainer as part of the paper’s annual Best of the Springs awards. By actuating fitness knowledge honed during 20 years in the business, Joe guides ladies through 60-minute, indoor boot-camp or kickboxing workouts that populate a robust weekly schedule. Kettlebells, resistance bands, and medicine balls sway and fly through the air during toning and firming exercises that chisel more muscles than Michelangelo after an inspirational viewing of Rambo.
During kickboxing, the curriculum takes a fight-centric turn. There ladies strike bags, dummies, and focus mitts, sharpening participants' self-defense skills. WBCF makes weight loss a priority in all of its classes, and Joe also heaps individual attention on each client during a consultation to set attainable goals.
Within MotionX’s lofty, airy studio, expert trainers retrain people to use their bodies through focused attention and classes that involve minimal machinery. Sport-performance training—carried out in Combine360 classes or athletic sport camps—runs young athletes through sport-specific drills. Sessions churn out champs with strength and agility training and teach the importance of nutrition and teamwork to ready students for the on-field demands of having to eat the losing team. Motion classes such as Core Rhythm and Pilates classes tone tummies and bolster the muscles that keep torsos from slouching, while yoga and tai-chi classes get practitioners limber and lean. Gyrotonic sessions help guests with spine or joint pain, rehabilitating bodies through breathing patterns and workout equipment that moves in circular patterns to build up resilience in joints.
The Gym at Soco knows restoration is just as essential to clients' physical wellness as cardio and weight training.

With these sessions offered seven days a week, athletes can complement their CrossFit, spinning, and other fitness classes with power, Vinyasa, heated, and athletic techniques.

Through classes for ages three through adult, Jester and his team instill a strong sense of discipline in their students, while also building strength and confidence.
