Snap Fitness's around-the-clock gyms enable visitors to fortify their physical well-being with a cornucopia of advanced fitness equipment and certified personal trainers. With 24-hour access, members don't have to let The Man or one of his many secretaries tell them when to help themselves to Snap's strength-training gear or top-of-the-line cardio machines, which feature televisions and other media diversions. A friendly, unintimidating atmosphere provides a refreshing change of pace from aloof gym employees and ear-splitting pump-up jams. Members also enjoy nationwide access to all Snap Fitness locations, ideal for working out while traveling.
At the Funky Buddha Yoga Hothouse, yogis of all levels practice within a space maintained at a balmy 95 degrees, a temperature ideal for releasing toxins, warming leftover lasagna, and boosting flexibility. Seventy-five-minute cardio-heavy classes tone muscles and keep hearts steadily pumping blood through the body. Senior instructors lead Absolute Beginners classes, teaching the fundamental poses and terminology of Vinyasa sequences so pupils can eventually move on to more advanced Power Vinyasa courses.
As the name suggests, Anytime Fitness is open all day and all night, seven days a week, 487 days a year. But just because it's open at all hours doesn't mean it surrenders its locker rooms to the dark forces of the night: security is active there around the clock. Besides creating a safe gym atmosphere that fits your life's schedule rather than vice versa, Anytime's hours cuts down on crowds and long lines to use each club's array of cardio equipment, circuit equipment, and free weights.
Group fitness classes and personal trainers are only a small sliver of the amenities at Elite Fitness. The gym also offers childcare services and a children?s dance studio so parents can work out worry-free.

And, of course, the facility boasts immaculately maintained locker rooms where guests can shower (towels provided) and change back into their everyday clothes or hot dog suits before heading home.

The instructors at Fabiano's Karate specialize in Matsumura Seito Shorin-ryu, a style of karate that focuses on targeting pressure points rather than using sheer strength. During classes, children and adults learn to disable opponents with blows to these key pressure points using striking, kicking, and punching techniques. In addition to these standing techniques, pupils take to the ground to learn grappling and floor skills as well as show off a perfect Curly Howard–style spin.
