Fitness 19 welcomes exercisers into its pristine workout facilities lined with Life Fitness cardio machines, free weights, and fully staffed childcare rooms. A personal trainer works with fitness seekers to create motivating custom workouts, helping members set goals and chase them down with the precision of a saint bernard leading a search-and-rescue mission in an inflatable-ball pit. Heart rates rise and calories evaporate during jogs on treadmills and pedaling sessions on stationary bikes. Dumbbells and barbells encourage lifting and curling, and Smith machines help bodies perform squats safely and effectively. Make muscles ripple with plate-loaded strength-training equipment, an eight-station crossover cable, or high-intensity deadlifts with a complimentary water bottle.
The Exercise Coach Game Plan is the world's most powerful and practical workout. It's the perfect fit for people frustrated by conventional fitness wisdom. With two, 20-minute workouts per week our clients enjoy greater strength, enhanced metabolism, stronger bones, and more energy and confidence.
Featuring an abundance of indoor inflatable slides, jumps, and obstacle courses, Monkey Joe's caters to energetic kids 12 years and younger regardless of the day's forecast. Today's Groupon lets an adult and their youngster swing by for a bout of supervised bouncing during any of the gym's open hours, which take place every day of the week. Adults always get in for free, but are asked not to jump on the play equipment unless they are watching a child four years or younger or just won bingo. Instead, accompanying elders can relax while monitoring little ones in Monkey Joe's amenity-laden parent nook, which features comfortable seating, free wireless Internet, and flat-screen televisions that never need you to wipe their noses. Kids three years and younger can scoot confidently about the super-soft surfaces of the separate Mini Monkey Zone. After battling through inflatable obstacle courses and contending with bouncy minotaurs, kids can scuttle over to the arcade to use their six tokens for games of skee-ball, basketball, or jump rope; most games require one token.
Exercisers seek out stronger muscles and leaner forms in National Fitness & Tan's state-of-the-art health-club facility with encouragement from a staff of weigh- loss and workout professionals. Rows of advanced fitness equipment fill the 8,000-square-foot health club instead of bulky, human-sized hamster balls or stationary penny-farthings. Pump up with strength-training machines, cable machines, and free weights, or get your heart racing on a treadmill, treadclimber, or elliptical machine, all of which are equipped with televisions to keep brains entertained while bodies get fit. During four sessions with a personal trainer, novices develop a balanced fitness program through conditioning routines and overcome fitness plateaus. They can continue calorie mastery at home after a one-on-one appointment with author and weight-loss expert Trista Rodéo. Trista will analyze clients' eating habits, create meal plans based on their nutritional needs, and explain which foods are best for the body and which are waxen centerpieces. After the consultation, four weekly weight-loss coaching sessions ensure clients stay on the right track.

Following the teachings of Swami Rama, Himalayan Yoga's limber yogis assist all levels of stretchers in adopting a balanced, mindful lifestyle through a variety of soothing classes. Vinyasa-flow and beginning Hatha courses follow a systematic progression of breathing and asanas—or postures—designed to strengthen muscles and align spines, giving bodies the brawny flexibility of a steel-coated rubber band. Himalayan courses impart the wisdom of Swami Rama through breathing techniques and meditation, and gentle beginning courses afford less-strenuous stretching avenues for students suffering from illness, injury, or long-held fears of Mr. Fantastic. In addition to offering individual and family sessions, instructors can adjust asanas for clients with certain physical limitations.
Open 24 hours a day, XSport Fitness gilds pallid patrons with sunless Mystic Tan and VersaSpa systems as well as regularly relamped UV beds. With Mystic Tan and VersaSpa spray-tan sessions, unstained patrons stand in private booths while a moisturizing mist sweeps over the skin, bestowing the body with the healthy golden glow of a Spanish doubloon polished up for a night on the town. In about two minutes, airbrushes apply a natural tone that can be customized according to body size, skin type, and desired color. The formula imbues dermises with a bronze, line-free tan without the hassle of spending all summer loitering around sandcastle hard-hat zones.
