Shellie Wingate and Meghan Crosman are both certified personal trainers with a knack for whipping bodies into shape.Their boot-camp programs include nutritional advice, email checkups, group workout sessions three times a week, and monthly fitness assessments.
In a friendly, casual environment for sinews of all ages and fitness levels, Shelby Fit For Life starts every member off with one 60-minute personal-training session. An experienced trainer works with guests to assess fitness, note any special needs, and develop an exercise plan for quick and efficient results. Inside the fully equipped facility, treadmills and ellipticals toast calories, and a weight stack circuit and TRX suspension trainer expand muscles like puffer fish. Those favoring a more exotic approach can take advantage of Gyrotonics equipment to trigger memories of jungle-gym exploits or spice up workout routines with one of the included group classes. Students dance the night away in Zumba, find inner gurus with tai chi, or pack in strength, cardio, and core circuits in interval challenge. With keyless entry, Shelby Fit For Life stays open from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily.
You won't find the typical rows of treadmills and weight machines inside CrossFit 222. Instead, the gym's space is filled with the likes of medicine balls, pull-up bars, and a team of expert trainers dedicated to a common goal: helping people make dramatic changes in their lives. Their ever-changing workouts of the day (or WOD) draw on several different fitness disciplines?such as gymnastics, Olympic weight-lifting, rowing, and keeping jumpropes from getting tangled on the floor. The team dedicates the entire schedule to CrossFit?starting with the introductory Foundations class?and each session fosters a sense of community support, with everyone sweating together towards their individual and collective goals.
