If variety is the spice of life, then Yoga & Fitness Passport is a veritable East Indian Trading Company. The outfit curates some of the highest reviewed fitness studios throughout both Canada and the U.S. From there, they issue passports that give exercisers a chance to jump from yoga to Zumba to pole dancing classes, all at different studios. Rather than having to navigate each gym's scheduling site, guests can find and sign up for sessions through the Yoga & Fitness Passport site. From there, folks just need to show their confirmation on a smart phone or wood etching, and it's off to the races.
The trainers at CrossFit Center Grove operate on a straight-forward philosophy: the body that trains for everything will be ready for everything. In their fully equipped facility, they combine dozens of intense exercises into ever-changing workouts of the day. They challenge students with classic muscle-builders such as pushups and pull-ups. They also delve into more unusual realms of fitness, turning to rowing machines, rope climbing, and gymnastics to spice up workouts. They incorporate plenty of weightlifting as well, using traditional Olympic-style lifts to build power and strength.
The instructors at Joe’s Functional Fitness Studio lead workouts designed to tone and strengthen people of all ages and fitness levels through functional training—customized exercises that burn calories and build muscle through fast-paced 30- to 60-minute workouts. Instead of sitting in static equipment, the functional exercises keep bodies moving to constantly engage muscles throughout the body instead of just one group at a time. The workouts combine body-weight training, running, and jumping with free weights and power lifting to prep bodies for real-life activities, like running to catch a bus and then casually lifting it up by the bumper. Participants can also opt for personal training or small group sessions limited to five people or less for more individual guidance.
In a comfortable judgment-free atmosphere, The Body Sanctuary stretches the fitness thresholds of its strength-thirsty students, offering intimate classical Pilates classes taught by certified instructors.

Your fitness assessment and personal training session will give you a jump-start at the gym and enhance subsequent workouts by providing you with information on the best exercises for your body, as well as individualized advice for achieving fitness goals.
?Witness the fitness,? said Vernon Garard?s 11-year-old son helpfully. The duo were trying to put a tag line on Vernon?s results-oriented, no-nonsense style of personal training as they described his boot camps. Vernon owns IXF CrossFit, an indoor facility where people come to engage in exercise as only a trainer can conduct it?a different regimen every day, benefiting the body in 10 unique categories of fitness. His son?s clever phrase has become an invitation he extends to all his clients. It challenges them to come see what kind of results they can get with his motivational CrossFit program.
As a former U.S. Marine and personal trainer with multiple certifications, Vernon brings the full brunt of his extensive training to every session. On any given day, he may heft weights in the Olympic fashion with his students or challenge them to flip a giant tire end over end. He mixes up the routines to prevent his clients? bodies from adapting to a regularly performed exercise, which may lessen their workouts? effectiveness and increase their chances of sprouting butterfly wings.
