A consultation precedes each treatment, allowing skin techs to evaluate specific trouble areas and make informed recommendations.
GroundWorks Gym's name is no accident?the foundational title is a metaphor for the studio's entire fitness philosophy. The center's trainers believe that a solid foundation of not only strength, but also respect for one's body, is the key to success. That's why they buttress their fitness classes with unique sessions centered on healthy movement. For example, Functional Movement Screens can identify athletes' disordered movement patterns and provide corrections to help them avoid injuries and awkward dance-offs, and Primal Move classes help boost mobility and strengthen the body's stabilizing muscles to give bodies a stronger foundation.
This foundation comes in handy during the gym's range of intense group classes. CrossFit sessions help athletes of all ages and body types achieve total-body functional fitness with high-intensity routines, which might include performing lunges, squats, and burpees, heaving kettlebells, or lifting weights, depending on the workout of the day (WOD). Experienced martial artists train adults and kids of all levels in the art of muay thai and jiu jitsu, along with leading?of course?foundational classes designed to forge the kind of strength and mobility essential to these disciplines.
It might come as no surprise that a professional bodybuilder-turned-personal-trainer would name his fitness venture More Pain Please, but Michael Harris doesn't just mean physical pain. He believes that a truly effective fitness regimen addresses the mind as well as the body. To achieve this, he custom molds fitness regimens to an array of body types and lifestyles, always keeping the client's fitness goals in mind. He implements these plans inside the Las Vegas Athletic Club's modern facilities—but if clients prefer a more natural environment, he can also schedule sessions amid the greenery of local parks. Michael Harris is also certified in First Aid and CPR, ensuring he can get clients safely through their workouts.
Within each noncompetitive Curves facility, female fitness seekers are invited to move through a 30-minute circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that are designed to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. Shunning cumbersome weight stacks, the hydraulic gadgets adapt to each exerciser's body weight and fitness level to complement her individual abilities, subsequently decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. And because traditional lift-and-lower motions tend to create bulky muscles, the machines promote push-and-pull movements to sculpt toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing unsuspecting grapefruit. Experienced trainers are always nearby to help clients manage their machine maneuvering, and a soundtrack of fun, upbeat music includes cues to let women know when it's time to move on to the next station or break for an air viola solo.
