Inside Centennial Crossfit's 5,000-square-foot training space, a muscle-bound cadre of certified Level 1 coaches stands ready to welcome any exerciser willing to huff, puff, and sweat their way toward better health. These trainers guide participants through each Workout of the Day, an ever-changing exercise routine designed to build a broad base of fitness that can be applied in other areas of life, such as being someone else's chair. On any given day, the workout might draw from exercises normally associated with any number of other sports or activities, including Olympic weightlifting, gymnastics, or martial arts. Since the exercises are scalable—meaning they can be adjusted to fit everyone from senior citizen beginners to elite athletes—all students who exert themselves can expect improvements in physique and general physical fitness.
Whether by food or fitness, 4Ever Be Fit offers multiple means of reaching new levels of health and self-confidence. One way is through indoor and outdoor boot-camp classes, which incorporate cardio work, stretching, and a variety of other exercises designed to challenge students of all fitness levels. More attention comes in the form of personal-training sessions, led by nationally certified trainers who assist with weight loss, bodybuilding, and encyclopedia throwing. 4Ever Be Fit also offers customized meal plans and moisture-wicking apparel by My Inspire Wear.
The trainers at Fitness Together know that while no two clients are the same, the path to health has some pretty clear road markers. They've created a fitness program that takes guests through eight phases over the course of year, evolving the workouts to adapt to each client's progress. The personal training starts with a fully customized routine, and small-group training matches up small groups of dedicated students for a similarly customized workout.
Students bunny-hop across the indoor turf, the balls of their feet bouncing within the rungs of an agility ladder. This exercise is used by the expert instructors of 2 Steps Ahead Performance Training during both their performance and functional fitness classes, which aim to help athletes improve skills for specific sports and increase overall fitness. They also offer indoor cycling and personal training.
At Hard Core Pilates and Yoga, each instructor guides small classes of no more than 15 students, mediating inner harmony and peace treaties between yoga mats and gym shoes through the serene practice of yoga. Instructors introduce the basics for building lean, flexible bodies in a balmy room in Not Too Hot Yoga or boost the effects of Vinyasa flow by adding hand weights in the Sculpt class.
Aside from the studio's yoga classes, instructors also offer Pilates sessions held in groups or one-on-one sessions imbue similar concepts with an extra component of quick movements and emphasis on rehabbing muscles after an injury incurred at home or at work at the loose-marbles-and-falling-scissors factory. Once athletes have sweat out toxins in class, they can enlist the studio's resident massage therapist to work out any lingering knots and evict lactic acid that builds up during workouts.
From New York City to Honolulu, National Fitness Solutions leads outdoor workouts that foster a sense of community and deliver a heaping helping of expert guidance. Undaunted by rain and wind, the instructors cancel their outdoor sessions only in cases of severe weather or pterodactyl attack. Regimens are designed for participants of all fitness levels, and all you need to sign up is 16 years between the current date and the issuing of your birth certificate.
