Embodied Energy's spacious, sunlit studio brims with professional fitness equipment?free weights, kettlebells, and aerobic steps share floor space with adjustable cable systems and Olympic squat racks?but their most valuable asset is their training team. That's because Embodied Energy is not a gym, but a personal-training studio designed to grant clients with holistic fitness routines that are personalized to them, from the individual workouts right down to the music they play during sessions. They extend this individualized approach to their group-training classes, which limit their size to no more than ten students in order to ensure personalized attention from the instructor. From classes in mixed martial arts and boot camp to Tabata intervals and strength-and-conditioning routines, this extra attention ensures that participants get the most from their workouts by using good technique, exerting enough energy, and keeping anti-gravity shoes in the "off" position. Once workouts are complete, clients retire to upscale locker rooms replete with hair dryers, organic soaps, and towel service.
Although each spacious, warm-coloured room of Studio Energi serves a different purpose, each one welcomes guests of all fitness levels. The studio offers various services, including personal- and group-training sessions, which use custom workouts to help clients reach their fitness goals, and group fitness classes, which range from high-intensity boot-camp classes to indoor-cycling sessions set to upbeat music. In addition, the studio's experienced instructors lead Vinyasa and Yin yoga classes and Pilates-yoga fusion classes. And for those who like to swim, bike, and run but don't know how to operate their treadmill-powered underwater velocipede, the studio offers triathlon training.
Embodied Energy's super-efficient boutique space is packed with functional equipment available for use by all members. There, personal trainers work one-on-one with clients to help them set realistic goals, design an effective workout program, and even assist with nutritional planning for optimal health. Off-site at Renegade Conditioning and Training, Embodied trainers lead group classes seven days a week, ranging in concentration from MMA and cross training to warrior yoga.
Woodstock Fitness & Racquet Club serves as the area's only squash club, featuring two international squash courts. However, the 15,000-square-foot space offers much more than just racket sports. In addition to myriad weight-training and cardio equipment?the center offers group-exercise classes, including Body Blast,?Psycho Cycle, kettlebell, yoga, and Zumba. Those who prefer individual attention can work with a staff member during person-training sessions. After workouts, members can stop by the onsite pro shop for squash gear or sports supplements.
The certified instructors at CrossFit Cambria work to enhance their patrons' functional fitness, meaning forging the muscles and endurance to perform every-day tasks such as climbing stairs or lifting heavy grocery bags. To that end, they cull exercises from fitness modalities including rowing, gymnastics, and Olympic-style weightlifting and combine them to form a different high-intensity workout each day. They can tailor moves to equally challenge each member, whether they are a CrossFit newbie or the Hulk?s stunt double. And to better help their patrons reach overall wellness, they also offer nutritional counseling and lead CrossFit-inspired yoga classes.
