Vegas Valley Gymnastics Center hopes to inspire confidence in children as well as adults, helping them hone their gymnastics prowess and mental focus with a variety of classes. Students of all levels?both recreational gymnasts and aspiring competitors?practice their skills at a fully equipped facility with uneven bars, a sprung floor, balance beams, and other apparatus. Students learn basic gymnastic skills that include skills like beam, floor, bars and vault, pommel horse, parallel bars, high bar, floor, and rings. Boys, girls, and tots classes are available.
Beyond gymnastics, the facility's varied schedule features dance lessons, cheer classes, and tumbling classes, which cover the fundamental techniques used in everything from cheerleading to court-jester internships. The center also offers adult fitness sessions, and for the more adventurous, aerial silks classes where students work on graceful, muscle-toning routines while suspended in the air.
Led by executive chef and seasoned culinary coach Beverly Lee, Senses! helps kitchen novices and skilled cooks alike increase their cooking savvy with an array of fun, engaging classes. Chef Bev engages students in an interactive environment, performing demonstration-based classes for hands-free learning, while hands-on classes make good use of limbs recently replaced with meat thermometers. Cuisine apprentices can soak up stewing, searing, and saucing skills from seminars on international cuisine, healthy cooking, gourmet cooking made easy, and more, before feasting upon the final product. All sessions include tutelage on concocting a savory two- to three-course meal, a pair of spiffy signature Senses! chef's aprons (yours to take home), and a professional menu with step-by-step instructions. While all necessary cooking equipment and ingredients will be provided, students should plan to bring a pen and paper for jotting down helpful recipe notes and tips for destroying meals that become self-aware.
Constant repetition isn't the best way to enhance fitness results. Camp Rhino's fitness courses emphasize variation above all else, whether that means tackling the CrossFit WOD (workout of the day), participating in boot camps scaled to individual ability levels, or preparing for different tasks on the obstacle course. Rhino's 10,700-square-foot facility houses myriad strength training equipment and a full multilevel obstacle course designed to prepare clients for mud runs, obstacle races, and awkward job interviews. Boot camps include outdoor portions as well, where gym-goers throw logs and pull tires to build muscle.

Longtime fitness fanatic Mike Todd takes a realistic approach to physical training and nutrition. With 10 years of personal-training experience and advanced degrees in sports nutrition under his belt, Mike designs exercise programs that constantly push his clients, but in a manner that is safe and sensible. One of those programs, the Raw Body Boot Camp, tests strength, agility, and speed. A notable contrast to standard boot camps, Mike's boot camps rely almost solely on body weight movements, which enable exercisers to gauge more accurately when they've reached their limit.
Because they believe movement is a precise science, the teaching team at Pilates + Yoga only recruits experts. Each certified instructor must have a background of 10 years or more in their movement-based art, whether they practice Pilates, yoga, dance, or interpretive sitting. They wield their knowledge during the studio's classes, adapting mat-based and apparatus moves to suit beginners and Pilates pros alike. Their wealth of experience also allows them to structure specialized lessons for pre- and post-natal women. From moves aboard the reformer machine to Vinyasa sequences to boot-camp circuits, they compose workouts that hone both strength and mental focus. The Pilates + Yoga studio reflects the same level of commitment toward the environment that the teachers display for their practice. Students stretch on bamboo flooring, their silhouettes dimly illuminated by low-lighting sconces, and solar blankets deter the sun. Reusable cups and cloth towels cut down on waste, and the Return Your Mat policy ensures that no mat purchased at the studio is thrown out or forced to work under wrestling Barbie dolls.
