Since 1976, Stone's Gym & Fitness Center has sculpted Bay Area bodies into leaner, tougher human shapes. While the gym has been around for a generation, its equipment hasn’t—updated exercise machines from Precor and other tested brands populate the workout room’s bright hardwood floors. Stationary cycles keep blood rushing through veins, and strength-training machines match reps with row upon row of traditional free weights. The gym hosts a suite of group fitness classes that boost well-being as well as camaraderie, and introduces kids to the onsite pool during swim lessons that teach water safety and the internationally standardized rules of Marco Polo.
At Sound Fitness, one can almost hear the calories sizzle. Ample rows of bikes, ellipticals, and other cardio equipment let guests build strong, healthy hearts without feeling pressured to give up their machines to other guests or movie cops needing to commandeer treadmills. To propel exercisers toward their goals, certified personal trainers plot custom workout plans and demonstrate how to build specific muscle groups with the free weights and strength-training machines. Babysitters corral pintsize visitors while their parents jog and pedal, and shower-lined locker rooms keep watch over clothes and gym bags to make sure they don't wander home.
Within a 20,000-square-foot gymnastics studio, certified group fitness and boot-camp instructor Ami Almquist helps her charges trim fat, tone muscle, and build endurance. Before the course, Ami gauges each client's spot on the fitness spectrum with a personal assessment, modifying exercises accordingly to ensure a challenging, safe workout. Up to 30 students rally for high-impact interval routines that blend cardio, strength, core, and circuit training. During sessions that—like the entries in a reckless time traveler's encyclopedia—change daily, biceps ripple under weights and cores tighten atop balance balls.
Bedecked in paintings and traditional Indian artwork, the walls of Devanand Yoga Center provide shelter the distractions of the outside world while promoting a meditative yoga practice. Beyond the familiar breath-focused Hatha yoga, the center also offers a core-centric yoga-Pilates hybrid class, as well a gentle healing-yoga class and a mantra-chanting session. Instructors typically start all classes with meditative elements, working to balance the mind so the body can better balance itself during challenging poses or impromptu pogo-stick throw-downs.
