Mindful Motion Yoga's eight certified instructors cultivate an accepting atmosphere inside the studio, sure, but they also bring classes outdoors for yoga by the tree, which places students amid nature's oxygen factories. As they help their students to boost strength and flexibility, these dedicated instructors also help students to release tension during Basic, Gentle, Power, Restorative, Yin, and Kids Yoga classes.
The team opens most of its classes and workshops to students of all levels, as well as dogs, since they have a copyright on their downward pose. An instructor will modify each posture for beginners and advanced students alike. To further immerse their dedicated students in this enlightening practice, they hold a comprehensive teacher-training program registered through the Yoga Alliance. Mindful Motion Yoga also supports several charities, including the Wounded Warrior Project, Challenged Athletes Foundation, Girls, Inc., and Christina Phipps Foundation, which owner Terri Morrison co-founded.
Jump PT?s personal trainers and instructors fearlessly lead the way on a quest for fitness with students or adults of all different body types, be they athletically trim or overweight, 11 years old or 60. During group classes, the instructors focus on arming students to excel in the company's 10 domains of fitness, which include such pillars of health as strength, coordination, stamina, and balance. Alternatively, they can customize personal-training sessions to help clients meet their personal goals. They even travel to homes and offices to conduct sessions with students or adults in the privacy of a familiar environment. Once healthy habits are established in class, the instructors can recommend meal plans to accelerate results. For those who miss a class or can?t make it to the gym that often, the staff fills its blog with daily exercises, the occasional fun picture from the gym, and videos of cats with ripped abs.
The Sylvester family had bartending in its blood. Whether it was Uncle Mickey holding court with 40 years' worth of regulars or Tony Sr. mixing one of his signature Skip and Go Nakeds, they exemplified the easy grace and no-nonsense craftsmanship found in a true barman's barman. That dedication to well-poured drinks carried over to Tony Jr., who has spent the last 35 years training mixologists nationwide through the curriculum of his ABC Bartending Schools. Taught behind fully functional bars, his courses educate students in topics ranging from drink recipes and equipment setup to flair moves and alcohol awareness. His schools also emphasize employment; after graduation, students can take advantage of a nationwide job placement service to land gigs in Miami nightclubs, Las Vegas casinos, or the bar cars of Chicago's El trains.
Surrounding students with an equatorial climate powered by eco-friendly heating, Radiance Bikram Yoga’s mirror-lined studio hosts classes seven days a week. Hot yoga classes—offered in 60-, 75-, and 90-minute sessions—challenge students of all skill levels with 26 seated and standing postures and two measured breathing exercises. The sweat-breaking workout systematically engages muscle groups and organs across the body, helping to tone and detoxify stressed-out chakras. Repeated practice can improve stamina and flexibility while cascading waves of heat loosen joints and form mirages of Antarctic ice shelves. Antibacterial flooring keeps soles contaminant-free, and the studio's onsite showers and changing rooms allow guests to return home feeling refreshed.
World Gym maintains its 35-year legacy of body-sculpting know-how at its Jacksonville Beach Boulevard location, jump-starting workout routines with cardio equipment, free weights, and more than 50 weekly exercise classes, including yoga, spin, and Zumba, taught by certified trainers. After running, jumping, lifting, or stretching, exercisers can linger at the smoothie bar to slurp up chilled energy, before retiring to steam rooms that vaporize stress with misty heat. A colorful, carpeted childcare center entertains youngsters as parents submit backs to certified massage therapists who wrestle tension out of muscles.
David Robinson has studied the value of hard work and exercise throughout his life, from competing in the Junior Olympics to serving in the US Marine Corps. Now, he runs Fitness Together to share those same lessons with others through his personal-training programs. David and his fellow trainers coach clients one-on-one or in small groups, combining three different programs to maximize results. They use the cross-muscular resistance-training philosophy of the Aspire 8 program to build strength. Interval and tempo workouts from the Cardio Together program are also tossed into the mix alongside the Nutrition Together program's meal planning and nutritional education.
