Sleek hardwood and smooth brick floors are the stomping grounds of dozens of colorful yoga mats inside Lehigh Valley Yoga’s studios. Experienced teachers take the helm in each room as they guide students through poses during Ashtanga, Vinyasa, hot, prenatal, and kids' yoga classes. Students and firemen also congregate inside one of the studios for muscle-forming pole-fitness classes.
Though calories flee despairingly from the long lines of weight racks and cardio equipment that stretch across FitQuest Fitness’s expansive gym, a friendly staff escorts first-time guests on tours of the 10,000-square-foot facility and expansive hardwood fitness rooms. Independent-minded patrons can huff and puff their way through solo workouts on Magnum Fitness circuit-training machines or show off their biceps to dashing mirrored counterparts during free-weight curls. Hearts pump in communal harmony during more than 10 group fitness classes that blend muscle confusion to prevent plateauing, interval training, and quick intensity changes into a fat-busting cocktail. Students sweat out their inner children in 45-minute Fitness Toy Box classes that obliterate torpidity by way of sandbags, medicine balls, and resistance jack-in-the-boxes, and 60-minute Zumba classes melt away calories with fiery Latin dance moves. After the high-intensity presses, curls, and squats of the Get Pumped class, a relaxing hour of yoga can foster a frame of mind conducive to composing mature breakup letters to lovehandles.
Leading Edge's no-contract fitness classes allow burgeoning buff bods to attack workout goals at their own speeds. Stir up cardio and intimidate local punching bags in the kickboxing classes, which teach various basic punching and kicking techniques in an intense aerobic workout, or galvanize a gladiatorial career thanks to the power pump kickboxing course, which adds a weighted bar to tone muscles and build strength.
Roey Ebert’s artwork has been splayed across school and store walls in the form of children’s murals as well as plastered on children’s books she’s both authored and illustrated. But where’s Roey? She can be found hosting paintbox parties, where friends explore the creative process in a supportive environment. Birthday parties, wedding showers, or hordes of creative-minded kids hunker down at Roey’s long tables to hone brushstrokes and play with color. Roey encourages students to follow their own instincts, even if means straying away from the image the group may be working on. Roey’s Paintbox Parties can also include personalized trinkets and party favors, such as mini-canvases, mini-easels, and mini-Screaming Norwegians.
