At South Beach Fitness’s two Columbus-area locations, experienced trainers lead exercisers through calorie-torching classes such as kickboxing, Pilates, and Zumba. In addition to the more than 20 classes offered each week in the cardio cinema and aerobics studio, the spacious club houses high-tech cardio equipment and free weights. A 40-yard dash area facilitates intensive speed training or very short walks. After all the hard work, a nutritional-counseling area helps clients keep fitness goals in line with their dietary habits.
Shape Fitness believes that since exercise is such an important part of a healthy lifestyle, people should be able to fit a workout into their own schedules. This spacious gym is staffed and open 24 hours per day, seven days per week, and clients here have access with their own key. Cardio and strength training equipment helps members stick to their fitness regimens, and group class are available for people who like to work out in a motivating, social environment. Certified personal trainers are also on hand to help train those looking to amp up their fitness routine.
The trainers at Fitness Edge simplify physical wellness by assembling all the building blocks for healthy living in one place. In addition to meal planning and personal training, their iSweat program – formerly known as Adventure Boot Camp – devotes a solid 20 days to completely reinventing bodies. With sessions held five days a week, the regimen builds strength and endurance through a series of circuit training workout. The dynamic group classes wrap up with a final weigh-in, test of athletic ability, and pat on the back for anyone with enough breath left to whistle the national anthem. Trainers also help out existing athletes with sports training designed to improve play at game-time while simultaneously warding off injuries.
At Shape 4 Life, experienced fitness instructors who achieved their own weight loss transformations now help clients shape up in similarly dramatic fashion. 50-minute Spin & Tone sessions use exercise bikes to incinerate fat, and BodyBlast boot camps provide customized training that can be geared toward exercisers of any age or fitness level.
Andy and Michael, the co-owners of Infinity Fitness, lead a team of devoted trainers who help clients work toward their fitness goals. They lead personal-training sessions in a one-on-one and group setting and circuit training and boot-camp classes at varying intensities. The staff specializes in a variety of fitness realms, including weight loss, lifestyle management, sport-specific training, and fitness for kids and seniors.
