Though the instructors and music selections rotate at My Hot Yoga, guests can bank on a steady temperature of 105 degrees Fahrenheit. This warmth is less cloying than it is liberating, loosening muscles so that students can ease into more pronounced poses during class. It also encourages a cleansing sweat, clears the mind, and boosts heart rates, providing a more focused substitute for traditional cardio workouts such as running or blinking very fast. Sessions range from the Vinyasa flow sequences of Hot 60 to the long holds of Deep Stretch, and they?re suited for all ages and fitness levels. This flexibility is what fuels the staff's overarching mission: to turn a hobby into a personalized lifestyle choice. Instructors further promote a comfortable, custom atmosphere by modifying poses and even allowing guests to submit song requests.
Zip Line USA’s steel cables carve more than three miles of winding trails through Ozark Mountain treetops, all ripe for exploration by guests. Designed by the respected brains at Universal Zipline Technology, the ziplines soar higher than 350 feet in the air at some points—just high enough to make eye contact with low-flying spaceships—and are dissected into chunks as long as 3,250 feet. Between each section stands a sky bridge or platform, where guides securely hitch tourgoers to cables, which they inspect each morning. Patrons zoom through the open skies for up to two hours during the day or 90 minutes at night, when only the soft glow of lanterns beckons them to the next platform like a lightning-bug mother welcoming its family home at night.
Couples Justin and Whitney Jones and Dave and Stephanie Beebe banded together to create CrossFit Branson after each being inspired by the CrossFit system’s encouraging environment. In their expansive gym, certified trainers lead intense workouts that are based on functional movements and designed for participants of all experience levels to see dramatic increases in their fitness levels. During each session, they foster the same camaraderie and friendly competition that pulled the business’s founders toward the sport in the first place.
At FitPossibilities, Kimberly Mills, an NASM-certified personal trainer, and her team prefer full-body exercises to isolated ones. This becomes clear during classes such as boot camp, Pilates, and Power-Plyo Blast, an intense cardio workout that incorporates elements of both core and plyometric training. In an effort to appeal to as many exercisers as possible, Mills and company round out their fitness services with hip-hop dance lessons and sessions for kids, seniors, and Benjamin Button.
