Certified personal trainer Mark Waggoner has been bodybuilding since age 11, but he lacked core strength until he discovered TRX equipment. Using the force of gravity as a resistance-training tool, these sturdy straps fortify the abs and back with customizable body-weight exercises. The movements mesh well with many types of workouts, including yoga routines, circuit-training sessions, and escapes from angry swarms of hornets. The studio's TRX Max boot camp incorporates tools such as kettlebells and jump ropes to cultivate functional brawn and flexibility. To complement TRX's stretches and strength builders, the studio hosts calorie-torching Zumba sessions, which incorporate vibrant international music and up to 15 Latin-inspired dances. Mark also propels exercisers toward their goals during one-on-one training sessions brimming with personalized workouts and goal-setting assistance. :m]]
At CrossFit Divergence, it's not about competition. Instead, the studio provides a fun atmosphere where people of all shapes and sizes participate in classes filled various functional-movement exercises that burn calories and increase endurance. The community of students and teachers run, lift weights, practice pull-ups, and row on machines during strength-building lessons wherein they work toward individual fitness goals.
Elevated Fitness teaches visitors how to harness their inner energy and channel it into something better. The high-altitude, eco-friendly training facility—which is also the country's first carbon-neutral gym—features inverter-equipped spin bikes, which generate electricity with every use and help deliver power to everything from the gym's lights and computers to its fans. As a further sign of its dedication to minimizing its carbon footprint, the gym also features flooring made from recycled tires, walls coated with low-VOC paints, and energy-efficient lighting throughout.
Although Elevated Fitness embraces a modern approach with its eco-friendly practices, its workout regimens are steeped in proven techniques as opposed to trendy innovations. The supportive group classes help patrons build strength or stamina, while also bolstering metabolisms with high-intensity training and full-body exercises. Additionally, a dedicated trainer can provide personalized support in the form of private training or custom-designed nutrition plans.
