Full-time moms and certified trainers host each Mommy And Me Time session in the spirit of camaraderie, building a supportive environment that encourages patrons to share their fitness goals with one another. The classes obviate the need for moms to find a sitter when they work out, as children are a part of each session and absorb the importance of physical wellbeing by participating or serving as cuddly free-weights in a regimen of cardio and strength routines. Core-refining ab training complements tension-unwinding stretch sessions to work out limbs, and the staff excuses any tots that don't develop six-packs or the ability to bench press their own bassinet. They also accommodate wee ones with a play area for exploring once they decide they are finished with the regular workout.
During Lakeshore Tennis Academy's clinics, tennis-loving tykes aged 4–10 clamber around courts and batter balls customized to their diminutive limbs. The QuickStart program introduces gripping and swinging techniques with the aid of engaging visual props and emphasizes a positive attitude, the vital trait that makes tennis players the smiliest athletes on Earth. The Future Stars clinic, for beginning and intermediate wallopers bound for tournament play, focuses on mechanics, court positioning, and game-based drills. Call to consult with Lakeshore Tennis Academy about which clinic is right for your tiny racketeer's skill level and age, and then schedule his or her swing sessions.
Led by certified fitness trainer Rachel Hunt, boot-camp sessions combine core-conditioning exercises with cardio and weight training to mold muscles and burn calories. Each day, your instructors will throw down a fresh guerilla ambush's worth of challenges for your muscles and your brain, fueling constant gains and keeping you engaged. Because the group setting promotes a team mentality, students motivate each other to take on new challenges and strive for their physical best. Class sizes are small (no more than 15 attendees), ensuring each student receives individualized attention and that there's enough oxygen available to prevent gasping.

The age-old disciplines of boxing and kickboxing get the state-of-the-art treatment at Gauntlet Fitness, where professional trainers teach high-intensity classes in a custom-built gym. David Sheram and Aaron Crocker lend their disparate disciplines of martial arts and personal training to the machinery. Their non-contact workouts build strength, stamina, flexibility, and confidence.
The coaching staff at D1 Sports Training refuses to discriminate between professional athletes and everyday exercisers. They scale the strength and cardio workouts of their group boot-camp classes and one-on-one intensive courses to individual abilities, bringing out the best in each student regardless of their workout history. The typical D1 gym houses modern indoor turf fields with adjoining weight rooms, giving instructors the space to invent expansive obstacle courses that may require students to lift tires or tug 747s. In both the boot-camp and Total Fit programs, coaches meet with students one-on-one to discuss athletic progress and find ways to improve further. Each facility also houses a sports therapy clinic, where expert therapists ease muscle injuries through rehabilitation programs and strength-restoring exercises. Many professional athletes implicitly endorse D1’s program by staking their claim in some of the company’s indoor exercise complexes; Peyton Manning, MLB athlete Chipper Jones, and quarterback Philip Rivers count themselves among facility co-owners.
Under the watchful eye of board-certified Doctor of Internal Medicine Greg Flippo, Prescription 2 Fitness’s personal trainers and medical aestheticians improve appearances with cosmetic procedures and weight-loss programs. Botox and Juvéderm injections can rewrite the oft-drawn-out stories that aging faces tell, and lasers show off their many talents by stunting hair growth, fading tattoos, or improving the appearance of damaged and wrinkled skin. Dynamic personal-training sessions and nutrition counseling fill noggins with healthy meal ideas and debunk the myth that steaks are vegetables. Clients can feast upon prepared meal plans brimming with local ingredients, which can be tweaked to feed all manner of nutrimental needs, from bulking up bodybuilders to streamlining silhouettes with the help of HCG.
