Innovative Fitness hosts a broad curriculum of fitness classes and personal-training options that allow individuals to tailor their experience to personal preference, whether its to lose weight, build muscle, or just have fun. Functional fitness lies at the core of the trainers' approach. Functional exercises performed at shortened intensities build greater muscle fitness and performance levels, and the staff design specialized regimens that accommodate each client's competency. Guests looking for a balanced approach to fitness may opt for boot camps that stress a mix a cardiovascular work and resistance training, whereas fun-seekers can inject some liveliness into workouts with Zumba dance classes. Through a personal-training regimen, individuals can consult an experienced trainer during weekly training sessions that provide much quicker feedback than writing to a fitness pen pal.

For more than 40 years, Gonzales School of Languages has unraveled an array of tongues with group and private language lessons for all ages, taught by native speakers.

Small-group classes allow for a variety of basic communications among students and their instructors, and the one-on-one nature of private courses provides a tailored experience for advanced students who are tired of practicing by shouting into caves.
