The multifaceted fitness facility Bodies in Motion keeps every family member active with its fitness programs, martial arts classes, and children?s activities. During open play sessions, kids run and jump on a massive play structure complete with four giant slides. Preschoolers build cognitive abilities and develop confidence during programs such as Strong Totz, which teaches kids how various sports work.
While kids play, parents burn calories with aerobic kickboxing or extreme conditioning classes, or they cement their trust on high-ropes courses for couples. Parents and kids refuel at the onsite Sandella's Flatbread Caf?, which serves healthy food such as quesadillas, paninis, and wraps.
Coos, gurgles, and tiny handclaps form a soundtrack for Stroller Strides classes, one-hour sessions that are part play group and part workout, helping moms and tots forge friendships as they build strength, coordination, and flexibility. Certified instructors lead intervals of power walking and toning exercises that sculpt the entire body more effectively than bench-pressing babies. Workouts incorporate easy-to-use tools such as resistance bands and the strollers themselves, as well as environmental elements such as hills and trees during warm weather. Classes welcome moms of all fitness levels and babies who are 6 weeks old or who can grow a full beard. Stroller Strides also develops online resources to help moms connect with one another and work out in their homes.
Combat Fitness’s coaching staff boasts a number of professional pugilists, most notably UFC bantamweight fighter Scott Jorgensen. They each bring their own particular specialty to the table, filling up the roster of classes with seven types of combat training, including boxing, Brazilian jujitsu, and judo. They round out the selection with conditioning courses designed to get participants into fighting shape, using TRX suspension harnesses to provide full-body, low-impact workouts.
At Essential Hot Yoga, formerly Sumits Yoga, students stand squarely on the hardwood floors of the heated studio as they celebrate four years in business. Instructors lead them through 75-minute classes, fusing inspiration from Hatha and Ashtanga power-flow styles of yoga to create a dynamic and fluid practice. Essential's two styles of hot yoga cover a sequence of balancing and energizing physical postures, called asanas, set to motivating music. The practice room's hot and humid atmosphere warms and relaxes muscles more effectively than a bear hug from an actual bear, helping yogis to reach deeper stretches.
International Fitness' 48,000-square-foot facility boasts a bevy of fitness opportunities for clients of all ages, including group classes, athletic courts, and cardio and strength equipment. Guests can engineer their own health-boosting regimen from the gym's selection, opting to build lean muscle on TechnoGym equipment or sweat off stress during daily group classes, including Zumba, yoga, and boxing. As parents squeeze in a workout on cardio equipment or catch a pick-up game on the full-length basketball court, their kids can burn off excess energy in karate lessons or play under the watchful eyes of pro sitters in childcare. Serious athletes can sculpt physiques during personal-training sessions, and health-conscious exercisers can log their daily intake, count calories, and gush over their secret food crushes on the health club's virtual dietary journal.
