Mold muscles and shed calories inside Fitness Now's newly renovated gym with free-weights, machines, and a vast array of fitness classes. Personal trainers administer a fitness evaluation to help jumpstart each member's relationship with the gym. In addition to unrestricted use of resistance machines, treadmills, stationary bikes, and stationary soccer balls, members can take advantage of a wide variety of aerobics classes on the schedule, which change periodically and are subject to availability. Body shapers can participate in yoga classes, which focus on breathing, balance, and flexibility, or try cardio classes such as Spinning, Move and Groove, and Pain, Sweat, and Tears, which blends energetic cardio exercise with light weight intervals, body bars, and BOSU balls. The clean, newly renovated gym offers ample space to manicure muscles and has a full-service juice bar with healthy refreshments available for purchase. Childcare services are available for an additional fee. New members are also given a free 15-minute massage from the in-house massage therapist/chiropractor, who will expertly remove knots from your muscles like a master sailor with surprisingly kempt hands.
Focusing on intense, personalized exercise regimens, 'W'arehouse's team of certified health professionals tailors programs to suit a wide range of fitness ambitions. Upon joining, members are given an evaluation, gauging muscular endurance, body fat, flexibility, and the ability to whistle "Chariots of Fire." A customized regimen of weight training, cardio training, and fitness classes is then bestowed upon the fitness neophyte and carried through in a variety of small-group sessions–usually involving five people or fewer–held throughout the week.
Frills equal distractions when it comes to working out. That's according to the certified trainers who own CrossFit Hardcore North, a member of the gym family named the sixth-best in America by The Active Times. That's why none of their classes involve fancy treadmills, designer rubber bands, or high heels. Instead, classes feature trainers such as Dr. Adam Locker leads students through group classes and personal-training sessions, and seasoned coaches who oversee each participant, monitoring progress as they deliver safety tips and words of encouragement.
Gymnastics-inspired bodyweight exercises such as handstands and muscle-ups build lean muscle mass, and plyometrics foster agility and stamina. Many sessions also incorporate running or rowing to raise heart rates and melt calories. In addition to sculpting lean muscle, kettlebell training cultivates flexibility with focused squats and swinging motions. Instructors also instill in their clients the CrossFit style with functional movements that aim to boost strength, power, and coordination.
Workouts take place in warehouses and other spartan spaces that embody a cultivated lack of the bells and whistles that often masquerade as fitness essentials. Here, basic tools such as kettlebells, jump ropes, and weighted sleds get the job done for a wide range of exercisers, from absolute beginners to advanced athletes.
At The Gym of Boca Raton, Life Fitness, Cybex, and Precor cardio and weight-training equipment line up in rows across the 15,000-square-foot space, helping patrons in their journeys to lead healthier lifestyles. But unlike many cookie-cutter workout facilities, exercise equipment isn't all The Gym has to offer. Here, certified personal trainers and group fitness instructors guide members to their goals during one-on-one training sessions and a full schedule of motivating fitness classes, including Zumba, yoga, and spin. The team doles out nutritional information and counseling for optimal weight-loss results, and strives to keep their clients on track with attainable, yet challenging, weekly goals. One week they might push them to increase their push-up regimen from sets of 10 to sets of 15, and the next they might urge them to achieve putting their pants on two legs at a time.
During Billy’s United States Fitness Corps Boot Camp program, members take to the beach to complete high-intensity workout regimens. Patrons work up a sweat pumping out lunges, sprints, and various other bodyweight exercises to shed inches and tone muscles.
The Gym also offers workout-enhancing perks, such as childcare, allowing parents and guardians to burn calories without strapping their youngsters to a stationary bike's handlebars.
Servicing the local community for 30 years, the Adolph & Rose Levis Jewish Community Center provides an outlet for fitness, cultural education, and childcare. Exercisers can get their fill of endorphins inside the gym or by participating in a group fitness class or sports league. Meanwhile, kids hang out with their peers and engage in fun, educational activities during summer camps and after-school programs. With an emphasis on Jewish heritage, the JCC also offers adult-oriented classes in the arts, as well as frequent musical and cultural events.
Dirt Fitness owner Kelli Musa designed the signature workout at Dirt, which has been mentioned by outlets such as the Palm Beach Post, the Boca Raton Observer, and NBC 6. Fusing elements of cardio and strength training, the 40-minute Dirty 40 sessions gather groups of students to burn up to 700 calories, which is equivalent to a hamburger's entire weekly income.

Certified trainers even supervise open-gym sessions, allowing students to pursue extracurricular fitness on their own. Dirt Fitness recently expanded with the opening of it newest location in Boca Raton which features an 8000 sq. ft. fitness studio.
