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.
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.
Anytime Fitness, which boasts 1689 clubs in North America, makes it easier for average folks to etch out time for exercise by doing one simple thing: staying open 24 hours a day for 365 days a year. As fit seekers challenge themselves on cardio and strength machines and hoist free weights in clean, well-stocked facilities, security monitoring ensures they're safe and producing enough sweat to meet official government standards. Members can also ramp up their exercise regimens with the help of Anytime Fitness' staff of personal trainers, who demonstrate moves and sling motivating tips. After workouts, guests can shower in the private restrooms or bop into one of the tanning booths available 24 hours a day.
Dahn Yoga on Windmill Lane offers a holistic approach to health and wellness. The studio features a comforting classroom, where wooden floors and a large mirrored wall help to create a traditional take on Korean décor. Large wooden doors and windows let in loads of natural light, bathing attendees in a warm glow. Both relaxing and tranquil, Dahn Yoga focuses on energy and helping others to enjoy a more balanced, healthy and energetic life. Even the suggested outfits are built for comfort, with most guests sporting simple t-shirts and loose-fitting pants as a way to maximize their poses, work on their flexibility and never feel constrained. Classes taught at the studio include basic yoga, Tai Chi, core strengthening and energy movement.
Through a challenging yet rewarding regimen of weightlifting, cardio, and calisthenics, Sin City Boot Camp helps people of all fitness levels build strength and self-confidence. An evaluation gets the ball rolling for each new student. After that, participants might find themselves deadlifting barbells in the indoor gym, or heading down the road to Sunset Park for a few rounds of pushups, burpees, box hops, and teleportations. Sin City's trainers make sure everyone stays motivated while pursuing their goals. They teach diet classes, too, explaining how to stay properly fueled for the workouts and boot camps.
