Snap Fitness's around-the-clock gyms enable members to work on their physical well-being with a cornucopia of fitness equipment. With 24-hour access, members don't have to let The Man tell them when to help themselves to Snap's strength and cardio equipment, which features built-in TVs and other media diversions. For those who exercise during conventional hours, Snap's friendly, unintimidating atmosphere welcomes patrons of all ability levels, unlike schoolyard dodge-ball squads. Members also enjoy nationwide access to all Snap Fitness locations, ideal for working out while traveling.
For a dose of custom advice, patrons can seek out a personal-training session with a certified coach, who helps them assess and address their fitness goals. Clients reap the benefit of individual attention as a personal trainer helps them tackle weight loss, prepare for an arm-wrestling competition, or unveil the mysteries of arcane cable-weight machines.
What began in 1975 as one inner-city gym in Highland Park, Michigan, has since evolved into a global health-club organization with locations in 17 different countries. Powerhouse Gym equips weightlifters and cardio bunnies alike with all they’ll ever need to keep—or create—a tight and toned physique. The gym offers equipment outfitted with personal TVs as well as a cast of certified and knowledgeable personal trainers. Depending on location, members will also have access to group fitness classes, such as yoga, Zumba, and Les Mills BodyPump, as well as 24-7 turnkey access to the facility.
The gurus at The Yoga Suite - Center for Yoga Studies adhere to the Iyengar method of instruction, emphasizing precise alignment while helping students bolster stamina, flexibility, and balance. The studio's flexible schedule accommodates students of all skill levels, boasting a variety of classes throughout the week. Each 90 minute yoga class fosters a sense of physical harmony, warming up muscles, loosening tight joints, and endowing minds with the clarity they need to solve crosswords in Esperanto. To ensure each pupil reaches proper alignment without incurring injury, the studio equips classes of up to 20 students with lumbar-buoying yoga props at each class, and attendees fasten themselves into wall-mounted straps to perform an array of gravity-defying poses. Assorted evening classes cater to work schedules and eschew sun salutations in favor of campfire sing-alongs.
