At Real Results Fitness, the end goal is health and strength. To work towards that, though, trainers keep in mind every patron's abilities. Students work in groups with others of the same skill and fitness level and keep instructors appraised of any limitations or previous injuries. Those instructors include a skilled trainer and a 20-year veteran of the industry.
They'll put to use the gym's equipment, which ranges from tires and heavy bags to stationary bikes and weight machines. Almost as important as all that gear is a range of meal plans and supplements, which can help with health goals even away from the gym and let patrons recover from classes. Those classes might include circuit training, which keeps all muscles working with ever-changing routines, or stretching sessions, which can help build flexibility and prevent strains.
Located on Fremont Street, right at the gateway to the Fremont East Entertainment District, Don’t Tell Mama is well situated to attract downtowners looking for live entertainment. A black and white checkerboard floor sets the tone, with ample tables and half-booths lining the walls, plus red velour drapes that hang around the large space. But the bar’s real draw is the grand piano, elevated on a small stage, from which singing bartenders and accompanists perform nightly. Patrons can make song requests and sing along with the waitstaff if they so choose. Or, better yet, get onstage themselves to perform renditions of Broadway show tunes, pop, rock, country, cabaret or any other song that comes to mind (and can be cued up from Don’t Tell Mama’s voluminous music files). There’s no cover but an enforced one drink minimum, so be prepared to spend some cash.
After spending the better part of the last two decades practicing yoga, managing studios, and teaching at various hotels, spas, and health clubs, Angelica Govaert decided to open Sin City Yoga. When she began to design her courses and write lesson plans for her teacher-training program, a vinyasa-based regimen that emphasized the connection between movements and breathing started to take shape. Today, her studio offers classes every day of the week. Open to all levels of students, the instructors adjust their routines depending on the experience level of attendees, each individuals' goals and limitations, and the number of quadruple-jointed students in the class.
