Master trainer and former Cincinnati Red Jerymaine Beasley has been recognized by MTV as one of the top 16 trainers in the nation. At Antidote Fitness & Nutrition, he and his staff of master trainers strive to make workouts fun, even hosting monthly events to create a sense of community and support. Jerymaine's team designs personal training programs to address each client's goals and physical abilities, often combining some form of cardio-conditioning, muscle-conditioning, flexibility, and nutrition. At Saturday morning boot camp, fitness seekers engage in group workouts that incorporate a variety of exercises. Camps for kids help little ones realize the importance of exercise and allowing mommy or daddy enough time to fill their three-nap quota for the day.
Snap Fitness's around-the-clock gyms enable members to work on their physical well-being with a cornucopia of fitness equipment. With 24-hour access, members don't have to let The Man tell them when to help themselves to Snap's strength and cardio equipment, which features built-in TVs and other media diversions. For those who exercise during conventional hours, Snap's friendly, unintimidating atmosphere welcomes patrons of all ability levels, unlike schoolyard dodge-ball squads. Members also enjoy nationwide access to all Snap Fitness locations, ideal for working out while traveling. For a dose of custom advice, patrons can seek out a personal-training session with a certified coach, who helps them assess and address their fitness goals. Clients reap the benefit of individual attention as a personal trainer helps them tackle weight loss, prepare for an arm-wrestling competition, or unveil the mysteries of arcane cable-weight machines.
No treadmills, no ellipticals, and definitely no ancient vibrating belts. In fact, at Twist Sport Conditioning, you won't find any machines. Because the trainers work primarily with athletes, they eschew boring, repetitive machine work for functional movements that translate into real results on the court, field, or Mario Kart track. Trainees gain strength, flexibility, and agility with classes like Adult Functional Fitness, and Twist even offers a convenient 60-minute session that makes the most out of your lunch hour. The center also hosts programs specifically for kids and young adults, plus sports camps that offer a longer, more intense experience.
Massage caught the eye of Josh LaFevre as a young athlete, when therapy sessions would alleviate muscle strain and speed healing. Now ten years into his career as a massage therapist, Josh has racked up a repertoire of techniques, including Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal modalities. He can also incorporate Eastern bodywork therapies like Thai massage, which incorporates passive stretching, or Reiki, which is a healing energy therapy. Josh also demystifies this holistic art during Reiki classes.
