If you're the pilot of your own body, then the personal trainers at Excellence In Fitness Studio are the air-traffic controllers, guiding each client toward their own fitness destination. Owner Jeff Monday—along with co-owner Stephanie Strout and their staff—provide one-on-one assistance for guests of all ages, giving the guidance needed to achieve goals such as losing weight and building muscle.
Planet Fitness embodies a judgment-free zone where guests of all ages and fitness levels can sculpt their physiques with myriad aerobic and strength-training options within a friendly, down-to-earth atmosphere. Patrons may chisel, strengthen, and balloon muscles by pushing and pulling the extensive selection of brand-name equipment and free weights. With the help of a trained instructor, guests can design a custom workout program based on exercise history, medical background, and goals of completing an underwater bicycle race. Thirty-minute small-group classes concentrate on strengthening and toning specific body parts, and others promote salubrious bodies with full-body circuit workouts designed to give each and every lackadaisical muscle a Popeye-like infusion of metaphorical spinach.
Anytime Fitness, which boasts 1689 clubs in North America, makes it easier for average folks to etch out time for exercise by doing one simple thing: staying open 24 hours a day for 365 days a year. As fit seekers challenge themselves on cardio and strength machines and hoist free weights in clean, well-stocked facilities, security monitoring ensures they’re safe and producing enough sweat to meet official government standards. Members can also ramp up their exercise regimens with the help of Anytime Fitness’s staff of personal trainers, who demonstrate moves and sling motivating tips. After workouts, guests can shower in the private restrooms or bop into one of the tanning booths available 24 hours a day.
For more than 17 years, Natasha Walker has practiced yoga—honing her craft everywhere from local studios and public parks to the comfort of her own living room. The seasoned yogi was eager to share her passion with others, so she learned the ropes of power yoga instruction at Colorado's CorePower Yoga. Today, Natasha runs Transcend, where she gears her moderately paced Vinyasa power yoga sequences to beginners. She sets sessions to music and guides students through moves intended to stimulate the entire body by building strength and increasing flexibility. Natasha runs through the sequence during morning classes six days a week alongside evening wind-down classes twice a week.
