Bliss Massage & Wellness Center offers fitness classes, including Pilates and kettlebell sessions, as well as several levels of yoga. The center's yoga program is headed up by Sarah Rakip, a certified instructor who specializes in power vinyasa yoga. She leads students with her philosophy that yoga practice may help practitioners develop not only physically, but also mentally and spiritually.
Studio owner Amanda Freel's passion for Pilates began in 2005, when she herself was still a student. It only took a few years for her to make the switch from Pilates student to Pilates instructor, falling so in love with the practice that she earned Pilates mat, apparatus, and Reformer certifications. To round out her fitness curriculum, Amanda incorporates Zumba's dance-infused workout into her routine, as well as the TRX Suspension Training program, which she is now certified to teach. With help from her team of yoga, Pilates, Zumba, kickboxing, and TRX instructors, Amanda hosts small group classes designed to help patrons of all fitness levels develop the ability to climb a mountain while touching their toes the whole way up.
With its focus solely on functional training, CrossFit EXP doesn't believe in treadmills and butt blasters, or TVs, for that matter. The gym is bare bones and to the point. It employs the functional movements of CrossFit using rowing machines, pull-up bars, kettlebells, medicine balls, and other basics. That equipment is used with everyday motions, such as pushing, pulling, and lifting, which readies participants for all physical activity. It also enhances stamina, power, speed, and agility. This system is scalable to all fitness levels, so CrossFit EXP welcomes everyone, easing them into CrossFit with a beginner's Elements course.
No men, no makeup, no mirrors. It's a philosophy that?s helped members of the Curves community since 1992. Part fitness center, part community center, Curves is a women?s only club that takes a streamlined approach to health, fitness, and weight loss. Curves has teamed up with health and fitness coach Jillian Michaels to develop full-body, 30-minute workouts that kick-start weight loss, combining strength training, cardio, and stretching into sessions that torch fat, build strength, boost intensity, and prevent plateaus. These workouts are enhanced further by the Curves Complete Program, available for an extra fee, which is rooted in Curves' method for effective weight loss in that it supplements efforts at the gym with personalized meal plans and weekly one-on-one meetings with a certified Curves coach.
