The high-intensity trainers at Work It Off Fitness lead a regimen of no-nonsense fitness classes designed to help clients efficiently hit and maintain their health goals. They believe that a tight-knit community of focused and passionate exercisers is an important motivator, so they aim to keep their classes engaging and ever changing to ensure regular participation. Classes focus on aerobic exercise and muscle sculpting, and though they are challenging, each move can be modified to suit students of any fitness levels. In addition to group classes, instructors meet one on one with clients for personal-training sessions or to talk about their muscles? awkward growth spurts.
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. Tanning beds, meanwhile, allow guests to highlight contours and show off the hard work they've been doing on machines by Precor, Cybex, and Powertech, while a smoothie bar, salon, and massage studio await to refuel and refresh bodies post-workout. 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.

Certified personal trainers customize workouts, and instructors lead groups through kickboxing and zumba classes. The center’s sauna and steam room lull muscles into a state of relaxation, while an on-site daycare takes away the stress of finding a babysitter.
At Franks Knockout Fitness, former professional boxer Frank Perez trains his students like prize fighters. That means plenty of punching-bag work, jump-rope work, interval-training circuits, and Rocky quotes. The result is a full-body workout that improves cardio fitness, tones muscle, and teaches self-defense techniques. You don't have to be a pro fighter to sign up for a class, though. Perez welcomes all experience and fitness levels.
