When Lance and Lauren Caron decided to start their own fitness classes, they didn't have a client list, equipment, or even a facility. They just had a few friends over in their living room and a regimen of effective body-weight resistance exercises in their minds. Demand quickly grew, forcing them to move the classes into their roomier basement, and then to a proper studio in Warrenton, Missouri. By May of 2012, the duo had built a community big enough to justify them taking over a large facility on the shores of Lake St. Louis, the current home of Resurrection Fitness.
Inside the 36,000-square-foot facility, exercisers take in scenic views of the lake during Les Mills–certified training sessions such as BodyPump and BodyFlow. The team of seven trainers also works with clients one-on-one during private workout sessions and nutritional counseling, which can help people make informed purchasing decision at the grocery story or shops that only sell sugar cubes and spinach.
The Pilates and Yoga Center's experienced instructors whip clients of all ages and ability levels into shape during yoga lessons, Pilates sessions, and BeyondBarre classes, which blend cardio workouts with ballet moves. To ensure their teaching methods stay sharp and up-to-date, all of these teachers attend workshops each year.
To advance results and help clients reshape their fitness goals, instructors helm metabolic tests, which determine how efficiently each body burns calories when at rest and when working up a sweat exercising or chasing down its spirit animal who accidentally caught a glimpse of a squirrel.
With the guidance of dedicated instructors, mat-bearing athletes pursue mind-and-body balance through Pilates and yoga instruction inside Pilates for Life's bright studio. Practitioners hone their abdominal, back, and buttocks muscles through any number of the more than 500 Pilates moves that build the mat-class routine. Daily classes unite stretchers of matching skill levels for up to 55 minutes; instructors guide each student toward crafting a routine that they can recreate at home or while testifying in small-claims court. Benders may climb coursework ranks to more difficult classes to keep up with their personal goals and physical conditioning.
The Fitness Fuzion treats guests to 9,300 square feet of sleek wooden floor space. Thirty-five classes, spread over seven days, range from yoga to pole dancing to Piloxing, a mix of Pilates and boxing. The main studio—with its cheery orange and yellow walls—features a small stage for instructors to lead classes on, and expansive mirrors for students to challenge their reflections to a staring contest. A second studio is smaller in size and holds Zumba classes.
While CrossFit’s mix of strength, cardio, and gymnastics training leads to full-body workouts, CrossFit 70’s certified trainers love the system for the camaraderie it fosters. All classes feature everyday movements to prep participants for daily activities, but they also feature motivational instructors and peers that push each other to reach their goals. Workouts change daily, side-stepping the boredom of broken-record routines. CrossFit 70 appreciates the scalability of CrossFit as well, which means they can tailor each workout to suit all fitness and experience levels.
