The trainers at Limitless Athletics have one goal: improvement. That means always aiming to be better than yesterday. They achieve this lofty goal with fitness classes such as High Intensity Training, which blends elements of TRX, CrossFit, weightlifting, speedwork, and athletic regimens to create one serious megaworkout. Theirs is an eclectic schedule that also includes MMA classes, lacrosse clinics, and yoga. Many of the same programs are available for kids, too, ensuring children develop discipline and healthy habits early.
"The meaning of yoga is simply union," shares Lila Yoga Shala's founder, Raquel Vamos. Thus it's apt that Vamos's goal is to help each of Lila Yoga Shala's members unite his or her body, mind, and spirit. Members can achieve this unity during classes in which they match their breaths with asanas, or poses. The deliberate pairing of breathing with the movements helps to instill calm and relaxation, while strengthening core muscles and limbs. At the studio, which is located inside Vamos Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, they can also combine this trio of elements during meditation classes, yoga workshops, and charity events.
Brick Fit House is a place to focus. There's no loud music, and owner Keith describes the gym as "no-frills." What exercisers do find there, however, are experienced personal trainers and lots of equipment—rarely with any wait, says Keith—that beckon gym members to work independently.
Instructors at CrossFit Suffolk work to strengthen their students with kettlebell swings, dead lifts, and cardio exercises. They scale the workout load and intensity to each student’s fitness level, from elderly students to cage fighters.
