The nationally certified personal trainers at Summit Fitness motivate clients to reach wellness goals with the gym's cardio, circuit, and weight-lifting equipment. Punctuated by the metallic sounds of weights settling into racks and RoboCop crying after his first loss at arm wrestling, the instructors sculpt fitter frames in one-on-one personal-training sessions. In group fitness classes, which include Pilates, cardio cross training, and interval workouts, they tap into energy reserves with up-tempo music, and on-site baby-sitting is available to occupy tykes. After leaving elliptical machines, stationary bikes, and treadmills, students walk past tanning booths to locker rooms. Electronic locks admit guests at all hours to the 24-hour gym.
Fitness Lifestyles boasts such a bounty of amenities that virtually anybody should be able to find a way to get fit. In addition to the usual weightlifting and cardio equipment, there are four indoor tennis courts, a pool, and even two massage therapists on call. A full schedule of classes includes aquatic aerobics in the pool as well as dry-land calorie-burners such as boot camp, spinning, yoga, and Pilates. After a strenuous workout, head to the spa to unwind with a hot stone massage or customized facial.
Anytime Fitness, which boasts more than 1,800 clubs in North America, makes it easier for average folks to etch out time for exercise by doing one simple thing: staying open 24 hours a day for 365 days a year. As fitness seekers challenge themselves on cardio and Hammer Strength machines and hoist Iron Grip free weights in clean, well-stocked facilities, security monitoring ensures they’re safe and producing enough sweat to meet official government standards. Members can also ramp up their exercise regimens with the help of Anytime Fitness’s staff of personal trainers, who demonstrate moves and sling motivating tips. After workouts, guests can shower in the private restrooms or hop into one of the tanning booths available 24 hours a day.
Nestled in Green Gables Farm, Whole Body Studio and Spa nurtures holistic wellness with relaxing yoga classes and supportive personal-training sessions in a tranquil spa setting. Within the serene yoga studio, pupils fluidly glide into seated, reclined, and standing postures during stress-melting Hatha yoga as soft lighting radiates from sloped ceilings and wooden pillars maintain stoic tree poses. Students may also contact Whole Body Studio and Spa to enroll in specialized classes, such as therapeutic prenatal yoga or the Mom and Baby Yoga class, which whimsically whisks new mothers and infants through rejuvenating asanas.
