Grayson and Chris, the co-owners and cohead coaches at Crossfit 601 South, have five CrossFit certifications between them. Along with a team of other certified coaches, they design a new workout each day incorporating varied, functional exercises from CrossFit’s arsenal of moves. During each class the athletes go hard—repping out Olympic lifts and pushups or running, rowing, and performing plyometrics during Workouts of the Day (WODs), which change each day.
Helmed by fitness guru and studio proprietor Tim Brown, The Fitness Factory Studio of Jackson's intense indoor rowing classes induce calorie-torching, full-body workouts. Designed by a National Rowing Championship winner, the studio's Indo-Row machines simulate a realistic rowing experience with a water resistance system, undulating splashing sounds, and trash-talking waterfowl flanking each machine. Customers can also opt for moving RealRyder indoor cycles or TRX suspension training. Throughout the hour-long session, aspiring athletes row to the melodic roars of Tim's encouragement, tracking their burgeoning fitness levels on the built-in progress monitor.
The mission of Pilates V Studio is to enrich lives through movement. The staff utilizes a large catalog of equipment in pursuit of this goal, from stability balls and kettle bells to gondola poles and magic circles, so named for their ability to make sharp table corners disappear. Their principal apparatus, however, is the reformer. As they position guests aboard the resistance-training machine, the certified instructors customize their instructions, depending on each client's history and fitness aims. Their one-hour classes and private sessions accommodate students of all ages and skill levels, working to bolster core muscles, enhance posture, and improve flexibility with traditional Pilates exercises. The studio is highly professional; utilizes state of the art equipment; and employees highly qualified instructors who work and responsive to the needs and ability levels of clients.
Some people prefer to pursue personal transformation in the privacy of their own home; others need to leave their home behind to seek change. Sassy Fitness's instructors cater to both sorts of students, with pole-dancing classes held either in their studio or brought to living rooms and offices. For mobile classes, they bring along a variety of poles and are able to accommodate most schedules. They teach small group classes or work with students one-on-one, beginning with light exercises to build upper body strength and simple moves to boost confidence.
Led by Leslie Jetton Tullos, 1994's Miss Mississippi USA, Beautiful Image of Jackson's skilled technicians help clients to maintain a youthful look with fusions of microcurrent technology and elastin therapy, free of the pain associated with surgery or injections. Treatments infuse the skin with gentle microcurrents—set to a level similar to the body's natural electrical current to keep from tripping cellular fuse-boxes—that work to improve circulation, hydrate skin, and draw an elastin-boosting serum to the deepest layers of the epidermis.
Each session helps to lift and tone muscles and aid in the reduction of fat, cellulite, and stretch marks. Unencumbered by any downtime, patients bound back home or to the office without any redness, ready to flaunt amplified loveliness in their next snapshots or family daguerreotypes.
Doctor of Chiropractic Billie King Shaw and the staff at Armstrong Chiropractic pride themselves on providing advanced pain-relief treatments. One such technique, rapid-release therapy, uses planar waves to break up scar tissue into scar confetti. Once that happens, soft-tissue aches such as muscle spasms, tendinosis, and carpal tunnel syndrome have a good chance of feeling better. Before any treatment is scheduled, Dr. Shaw performs a chiropractic exam and takes x-rays to pinpoint the problem.
