Each noncompetitive Curves facility invites female fitness-seekers to move through a 30-minute circuit of hydraulic resistance machines 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 create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create 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.
An uncoordinated child, Jess didn't really discover her athletic side until college. At that time, though, a group of friends introduced her to activities such as yoga, hiking, rock climbing, and biking. She realized that, with a little training, she could change the way her body worked, and begin to trust her own limbs. Now, as the owner and trainer behind JessBFit Personal Training & Yoga, she helps others transform into healthier versions of the themselves. She teaches outdoor fitness classes and yoga, as well as one-on-one training sessions customized to help clients achieve their personal fitness goals.
For more than 35 years, guests of Courthouse Fitness have conquered every hindrance to personal health, taking advantage of a multilayered approach that addresses fitness, diet, and broader facets of well being. Beyond basic features such as weight training, cardiovascular equipment, and immobile floors that force walking, membership grants access to more than 320 group fitness classes that populate each week's schedule, integrating practices such as Pilates and yoga along with aqua Zumba and Jazzercise. Courthouse Fitness's personal trainers follow the philosophy that being fit means being empowered to embark on any kind of adventure you want. A core tenet within that philosophy is the belief in fun. The staff does not emphasize a rating system or hierarchy, instead evaluating progress in terms of whether clients become more able to experience an enjoyably active life. Onsite childcare providers take care of young ones while parents work out, and many youth activities also keep kids busy, including swimming and special-needs dance classes. Courthouse Fitness is also part of a network of 70 clubs in the Pacific Northwest; members can work out at those facilities as guests when on the road.
The muscle tutors at Fitness Together will work with you to determine your goals (drop pounds, run a marathon, get strong enough to finally confront Douglas) and develop a customized workout plan designed to help you reach your true fitness potential. They’ll supervise your squats, offer nutritional advice, and push you until you see results. Individualized attention means it’s all about you—your trainer can point out when you’re doing a stretch incorrectly, help you tone the trouble zones, and push you to keep going when you’d otherwise quit or become distracted by the fragile beauty of a passing hummingbird.

Physiq Fitness is a shining new workout center—almost as shiny as the silver medal it won for Best Fitness Center and the bronze medal it won for Best New Business in the Statesman Journal's Best of Salem 2012 awards. Inside the modern facility, strength machines, cardio machines, and free weights stay at their posts 24 hours a day, waiting for members looking to boost muscle mass or crack stubborn walnuts. Certified personal trainers hang out, too, calling upon their years of schooling in science and human biology and their expertise in strength and cardio training to lead clients through tailored workouts and nutrition programs. Strength-training and sports-training sessions tackle sport-specific workouts that help increase power, stamina, and agility. Additionally, Physiq's boot-camp sessions challenge groups with a slew of conditioning exercises, calisthenics, obstacle courses, and drills designed to help boost performance levels during sports and full-contact spelling bees. Clients can replenish incinerated calories with healthy shakes from the in-house juice bar.
