At Bodysport Fitness Center, highly trained instructors motivate pupils of all athletic abilities during high-intensity group boot-camp classes designed by experienced personal trainers. During each coed session, a barrage of full-body workouts replaces lazy fitness routines and helps build lean yet strong physiques. Each trainer adapts his or her program to fit the personalities and abilities of the students, and changes the regimen routinely to confuse muscles, enraging them until they get strong enough to do something about it.
Exercisers feed off each other?s energy during the fun 45-to-60-minute sessions, cultivating a group bond and camaraderie based on mutual success and encouragement. The recently revamped program may incorporate elements of kettlebells, free weights, kickboxing, and even yoga alongside classic boot-camp musts, including calesthenics, plyometrics, core workouts, and primal screaming. During comfortable weather, students work away excess calories in scenic outdoor parks and move into the gym?s 8,400-square-foot facility in cases of extreme heat.
Nevada Ballet Theatre will launch its 39th season on October 15 with its Fall Series tribute to the late Robert Joffrey. This unprecedented performance will feature the combined dance powers of four of the nation's leading companies: Ballet West, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, and the Nevada Ballet Theatre. NBT dancers will kick off the evening with fluid, impressionistic movements that passionately recall the beauty of Degas paintings without subjecting the audience to overly talkative art historians with turpentine breath. Hubbard Street Dance Chicago will take the stage to perform the pas de deux from Gnawa, followed by Aspen Santa Fe Ballet's rendition of Jorma Elo's Red Sweet, a hyperkinetic blend of robotics and pirouettes. Danceophiles can also wiggle their feet fingers in anticipation of a special preview performance of Jiri Kylian's joyous Sinfonietta, danced by Ballet West.
Guests entering a David Barton Gym for the first time might think they've accidentally wandered into a nightclub, and be tempted to trade their athletic shoes for a pair of high heels. The celebrity-studded gyms have cropped up in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, and aim to transport exercisers from their everyday lives into a wildly imaginative fitness playland whose statues, artwork, velvet sofas, and dramatic lighting are reminiscent of a movie set or fashion runway.
The Las Vegas location was designed by antiestablishment fitness legend DavidBartonGym, as told to the Las Vegas Review Journal, "This gym will give the local Las Vegas audience an environment that's the alternative to the mainstream health club that they've become accustomed to." The 30,000-square-foot gym offers miles of cardio stations, each with their own LCD TV, as well as experienced personal trainers and yoga for all skill levels. The unconventional space resounds with music and features an over-the-top locker room rumored to be the favorite alias-donning spot of numerous superheroes.
