The coaches at Signal 5 CrossFit each come from a different fitness background—one was a gymnast, another was a basketball player. This diversity serves their CrossFit courses well, as participants can scale each exercise to their own personal fitness abilities and goals. In addition to CrossFit classes, Burner X courses eschew traditional lifting and free weights, instead utilizing objects such as ropes, sleds, and tires.

Before she discovered yoga, Rachel Wilson felt like she was sprinting toward a goal she couldn’t see. Instead of pushing through the fatigue that grew with each day she spent in law school, she stopped to consider her path forward. Among all the components of her day-to-day life, fitness stood out as a singular source of inspiration and fulfillment. She decided to build her world around what made her happiest, and before long she had transformed from a weary law student to an ACE-certified personal trainer and a spirited teacher of Pilates and Zumba. However, Rachel’s yoga mat would prove to be the location of her greatest breakthroughs. Here, she learned to look inside herself for guidance; as a certified yoga teacher and YogaFit master trainer, she now helps others do the same. At Om My Yoga, Rachel and her team of experienced instructors welcome students of all skill levels, helping them ease into poses that loosen muscle knots and car keys lodged between shoulders. Classes range from Vinyasa yoga—a dance-like fusion of ancient poses, breathing exercises, and meditation—to mat Pilates, a workout that engages the core with focused movements. In addition to melting stress during Om My Yoga’s classes, students can build home-based relaxation sanctuaries with the studio’s selection of yoga mats and DoTerra essential oils.
