Madame et Monsieur's non-invasive, FDA-approved ElectroSlim technology helps clients get buff. Electrodes attached to the target area deliver electronic pulses that stimulate more than 1,000 muscle contractions in a single one-hour session. The soothing procedure feels like a deep-tissue massage, but delivers the muscle-building results of a serious sweat session. ElectroSlim can tone specific areas that normal exercise doesn't reach as well as burning away excess amounts of fat, redefining the client's overall body shape.
Sue Harragan and Tawnya Christian didn't take their first ballet barre workout class together, but they had the same immediate affinity for the workout's precise movements and body-sculpting potential. Nowadays, they work together to spread the good word of the addictive workout at their Las Vegas studio, thebodybar(re). While their eclectic course catalogue includes TRX and bootcamp sessions, their core classes are all ballet-barre based. They mix muscle-building and core-toning with cardio and stretching for a complete workout that centers around the ballet bar. Some classes incorporate weights and adrenalin-boosting beats, and one even eschews the barre altogether in favor of a Pilates-style workout.
Though Sue Harragan and Tawnya Christian discovered barre workouts on opposite coasts, a mutual love of fitness and their desire to help others achieve their "best self" brought them together in Las Vegas. The business partners now helm Barre Las Vegas, a studio that strengthens hearts, cores, and limbs with ballet-inspired barre workouts. Upbeat music fuels each session, during which students line up at the barre and perform a routine of precise dance-training moves that blend yoga poses, Pilates exercises, and orthopedic stretching. While patrons burn calories during bouts of fat-burning interval training, they also increase their flexibility and tone their muscles, making their bodies as lithe and lively as a break-dancing slinky. In addition to leading barre classes, the motivating instructors push students toward their fitness goals with workout-enhancing tools such as TRX suspension-training straps.
Koko FitClub’s innovative technology imparts the benefits of a personal trainer without any of the drawbacks, such as scheduling conflicts, steep prices, and handshake obligations. Digital keys help patrons to unlock their custom training plans, which are displayed on a fleet of cardio and strength-training machinery. First, clients elect one of Koko’s exercise tracks—including weight loss, pain relief, and muscle building—so computers can design personalized routines based on individual goals, measurements, and starting fitness levels.
Plans transfer from the computer to a Koko Key, which, like a USB drive or a desktop wallpaper of a guard dog, safeguards digital documents. The key fits into each of Koko FitClub’s cardio and strength-training machines, which display the number of reps or intensity of intervals needed and how to tweak any off-kilter techniques. Each 30-minute workout presents a fresh routine to keep minds engaged while clients blast through traditional exercise plateaus. It's innovations such as these that recently lead to Koko FitClub being named "Best of 2013" by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
