Time Out Pilates & Fitness Studio helps clients build beautiful bodies and enhance mental focus through nutrition, private Pilates training and numerous muscle toning and body sculpting classes. Pilates reformer and mat courses help students build lean musculature, increase their range of motion, and achieve better control over each movement. Classes such as aerial stretch and small ball release help keep muscles and spines feeling lengthened and pliable. Between the sunny goldenrod walls of the studio, students learn to harness the power of their metabolism through exercise and proper nutrition in a spa-like setting.
More than 25 years ago, Marcy McHenry founded the Dancers Studio to put her 30 years of dance experience to good use. The studio’s three ballrooms spread out over 6,500 square feet of arm-flinging, leg-kicking room. Upon the shiny, lacquered hardwood, a staff of trained instructors guides students of all skill levels through ballroom, Latin, social, and special-event dance routines. During group lessons, the instructors cultivate a noncompetitive atmosphere where their pupils can thrive in styles such as the tango and west coast swing. In private lessons students can fine-tune techniques, learn extra-challenging new steps, or find out what Fred Astaire’s favorite ice-cream flavor was during their one-on-one time with an instructor. Those looking to show off their new moves can get down on Thursday evenings when the studio's DJ Chris spins a variety of tunes for pupils to kick their heels up to for an hour.
The studio also encourages dancers to maintain healthy physiques in Pilates, Zumba, and yoga classes. Clients can sculpt long, lean muscles and strong cores in a Pilates session, or get heart rates thumping in Zumba classes that play energetic Latin tunes.
Nestled inside Healthy Training’s 2,100-square-foot space, kettlebells, body bars, and medicine balls eagerly await action in the next sweat-filled boot camp. They answer to a team of nationally-certified trainers, who lead group fitness classes that build long, muscles through yoga and Zumba. In addition to group classes, these trainers craft personal fitness plans unique to each individual. They can also demystify the secrets of healthy eating through customized nutritional planning and fat-burning recipes that utilize unique spices, whole ingredients, and protein bar wrappers.
