Koko FitClub’s automated personal-training system rockets both men and women toward fitness goals with 30-minute custom workouts that incorporate cardio and strength training. An initial consultation determines fitness level and baseline measurements, which Koko’s computerized equipment uses to design a tailored workout plan that precisely measures the weight, pace, and rest time appropriate for each exerciser.
The patented Smartraining machines guide exercisers through each workout and adapt as the user’s fitness needs change, to constantly challenge the body. Exercisers can track their results and body composition measurements online and even compare individual fitness levels to others in the Koko FitClub community.
Members of Bella Women’s Fitness gain access to the women-only gym 24 hours a day, allowing them to meet with their personal trainer or soak up heat in the sauna at all hours. The gym, designed to be as convenient, comfortable, and bee-free as possible, stocks its earth-colored walls with cardio machines paired with plasma TVs, free weights, and stability balls. Guests work out on those machines alongside a personal trainer or on their own, or they can feed off the enthusiasm of a small group during yoga, Zumba, and Pilates classes. After working out, guests revel in the comforts in the locker room, which includes personal showers, a sauna, tanning booths, and an aesthetician.
Trans4mations Gym encompasses more than the traditional rows of treadmills and stationary bikes. It’s a space where small groups gather throughout the day to partake in training sessions. The sessions usually last 45–60 minutes, and cover strength, conditioning, core fitness, and flexibility. The ever-changing routines are designed to replace fat with hard, lean muscle, no matter where exercisers initially fall on the fitness spectrum.
As the name suggests, Anytime Fitness is open all day and all night, seven days a week, 487 days a year. But just because it's open at all hours doesn't mean it surrenders its locker rooms to the dark forces of the night: security is active there around the clock. Besides creating a safe gym atmosphere that fits your life's schedule rather than vice versa, Anytime's hours cuts down on crowds and long lines to use each club's array of cardio equipment, circuit equipment, and free weights.
The System is more than just a name for this fitness studio—it's an actual system used to combat excess weight and tone bodies. It combines everything from resistance training and plyometrics to weight lifting and mixed martial arts with nutritional guidance. It also relies on functional-fitness exercises, which mimic everyday activities to help you with such common tasks as carrying heavy grocery bags filled with dumbbells.
The studio's fitness classes include calorie-torching Power Fit classes and kickboxing camp, plus flexibility-enhancing stretching. The studio also offers boot camps and martial arts classes for kids and adults.
