Upbeat music blares at New Haven Strength & Fitness LLC, where the instructors schedule fast-paced fitness classes such as Les Mills BodyPump, Les Mills BodyAttack, and Turbo Kick. The studio is also home to Bokwa classes, which challenge exercisers to draw letters, numbers, and M.C. Escher sketches in the air with their feet. Clients who want a slightly less intense workout can sign up for one of the Pilates-based Slim Sculpt sessions.
Breathing Room offers yoga practitioners of all skill levels the chance to increase flexibility, reduce stress, and maintain natural joint mobility, while developing mind-body balance through various styles of yoga. With today's deal, guests can bend bodies in five different yoga classes offered at various times each week. Classes take place every day and usually last between 60 and 90 minutes, or roughly the time it takes to microwave a Twinkie. Break the exercise ice with the gentle-flow yoga class, a good place for beginners to learn the fundamentals of yoga while slowly flowing through postures and focusing closely on alignment and body structure. For more seasoned stretchers, Breathing Room offers power-flow yoga, a demanding, faster-flowing class, concentrating on strength and heat within the body.
New Haven Fitness packs state-of-the-art cardio and resistance-training equipment, certified personal trainers, and a jellybean jar of heart-pumping classes within its window-lined walls. Love handles melt away on the Life Fitness treadmills, elliptical machines, and stationary bikes, while muscles mushroom under the direction of Hammer Strength free weights. Personal trainers sculpt unmotivated contractile tissues into apt pupils with exercises customized for body types, fitness levels, and favorite Smurfs. Morph ungainly thighs into shapely stems with the gym's kaleidoscope of fitness classes, including calorie-zapping Zumba, stress-relieving yoga, muscle-lengthening Pilates, and aggression-channeling kickboxing.
Bikram Yoga New Haven's 90-minute classes keep tendons lean and taut by taking participants through 26 poses of muscle-melting concentration and two breathing exercises, all performed in room set at 105 degrees Fahrenheit. With the thermostat cranked to a warm, humid, and detoxifying temperature, students narrow their focus to sweat out their toxins and forge new, flexible frontiers while maintaining rhythmic, deep relaxation breathing. Aside from empowering the mind, muscles, and soul, Bikram classes provide proven benefits, such as assisting in injury recovery, speeding tissue regeneration, and granting the power of wingless flight. First timers will benefit from coming with an empty stomach, plenty of water, and two towels, but yoga-mat rentals at every session mean clients don’t have to worry about forgetting theirs at home or weaving one out of packing peanuts (free for first class; additional fee for mat rental applies for following classes). Over 25 classes on the weekly schedule allow for flexibility that goes beyond bendy thigh muscles.
