The playing field is level and accented in aqua at LOA Fitness for Women, where health is a community endeavor. The gym houses special strength-training equipment with 5-pound pin-adjusted weights that, by virtue of being lighter, prevent injury and foster healthy muscle development. On-site babysitting services and an all-female crew of personal trainers similarly break down physical, practical, and emotional barriers to women's well-being. Eleven types of group movement classes, including Zumba and Pilates, re-enforce the feeling of sweat-bonded camaraderie that permeates the ranks of treadmills and bikes, and nutrition counselors equip women with the skills to make healthy choices at home.
LOA Fitness also offers team training, which incorporate equipment such as kettle bells, balls, and sandbags, and group fitness classes, which include kickboxing, yoga-lates, Zumba, and much more. During automated spa treatments, women step into tranquil chambers that rejuvenate muscles and skin.
At Sunstone Yoga, students radiate calm and self-awareness as they practice ancient poses designed to stretch, strengthen, and purify the body. Instructors complete 500 hours of training in yogic techniques, teaching, and physiology before leading classes, so they can hand out researched, tested tips on safety and alignment. Most classes come in 30-, 60-, and 90-minute varieties and focus on energy or restorative relaxation. A two-class introductory series welcomes beginners with basic standing poses, and the popular fire series explores up to 34 poses in a 99-degree room that loosens muscles to facilitate deeper stretches as it ousts toxins. Filled with soothing music and 90-degree temperatures, the water series cultivates more serenity than getting a massage from a singing whale.
ASI Gymnastics helps children of all ages develop a lifelong passion for athletic activity through the practice of gymnastics. In addition to improving strength, endurance, balance, and coordination for children 12 months to 18 years old, the instructors use gymnastics training to bolster confidence and encourage mental growth alongside physical development. Age-appropriate programs begin by introducing fundamental techniques before moving on to more demanding skills, such as handstands, standing back handsprings, and cartwheeling through laser security systems. ASI Gymnastics also caters to varying levels of interest by providing competitive team training as well as casual birthday parties complete with trampolines and games.
Led by Jessica and Jonathan Imburgia, Body Synergie's team of dedicated instructors fosters holistic wellness through supportive yoga and tai-chi classes. Busy students can ease tension throughout the week in concentrated stretch sessions from the studio's accommodating schedule. Within Body Synergie's inviting asana room, fledgling yogis bend in basic postures and warm lighting bounces off sleek hardwood floors during Beginners Yoga classes. Yoga Roots sessions boost alignment, Power Yoga sessions challenge adventurous yogis with arm balances and inversions, and Therapeutic Yoga assuages aches with gentle restorative movements that employ supportive props to accommodate students with limited mobility due to chronic injury or wearing a suit of armor that shrunk in the dryer. In more methodical tai-chi lessons, students shift through strengthening poses while breathing carefully to heighten bodily awareness and relinquish stress.
