The fitness aficionados at Training Ground aren’t content to slog through dusty workout regimens. Instead, they introduce exercisers to TRABOKI, a fresh approach to fitness co-created by the facility’s owners that fuses elements of personal training, boot camp, and kickboxing into one intense total-body workout. Utilizing functional movements to build strength, TRABOKI shakes up uninspired routines with a new workout every day, keeping muscles more delightfully confusing than an episode of Yo Gabba Gabba! directed by David Lynch. A similarly novel approach to exercise, Tabata classes whisk groups through 30-minute power sessions of high-energy interval training. The results gained from both TRABOKI and Tabata carry over to Training Ground’s other exercise offerings, including personal-training programs.
Each of Hub City CrossFit's coaches were drawn to CrossFit after becoming disappointed with traditional globogyms, hoping to inspire in their students a newfound vigor and passion for fitness with energetic training regimens. CrossFit routines don't only keep the mind engaged with varying daily workouts, they focus on utility by using functional movements that serve a purpose, such as squatting, rowing, or teleporting. With regular tracking of Workouts of the Day, the gym fosters a friendly competition between members, all while building a strong, health-conscious community of like-minded members with its intense cardio and weight training.
Through personal training and group fitness classes, Movers & Shakers Fitness Club coaxes clients off the couch and into the gym. Small groups convene at morning and evening six days a week for heart-pumping classes, including boot camp, Cardio Dance Blast, and beginners' basics, which teaches the fundamentals of fitness, such as which workplace objects are appropriate to bench-press. The club’s personal trainers also tailor one-on-one sessions to personal weight-loss or strength-training goals, and they supplement workouts with custom meal plans. The club's clients can complement their newly fit physique with onsite facials and body wraps.
The Boxing Club, as its name suggests, is wired for boxers. Its owner, USA-Certified Boxing Coach Rosie Barker, has furnished the space with boxing studio essentials such as a ring, weights, and punching bags. Despite that, the studio doesn't strictly teach boxing. Rosie and her staff also teach kickboxing, sparring, and kenpo classes for kids, teens, and adults. Rosie has an affinity for kenpo, having more than 35 years of martial arts experience and black belts.
Capstone CrossFit's workout philosophy keeps coy, seen-it-all muscles guessing with a constantly shifting workout regimen. An introductory Elements class acclimates new members to the ethos of their new exercise overlords. From there, you'll be free to choose from a schedule of morning, evening, and women's-only classes. The program begins with a muscle-readying warm-up, followed by a five-minute clinic on the workout of the day. These ever-changing workouts last 5–30 minutes and focus on high-impact movements with functional applications, such as lifting a photocopier—or running up the wrong escalator with a stolen photocopier. All sessions conclude with guided stretching. An expert staff oversees the regimen, which incorporates body weight exercises as well as medicine balls, kettlebells, jump ropes, free weights, and time travel.
The Yoga Stand's friendly, experienced head instructor is dedicated to the Vinyasa yoga discipline and offers two distinct classes. Vinyasa strives to channel energy that flows without resistance, helping to strengthen and balance the masts of soul vessels until they gently glide toward the soothing jets of remote jacuzzi seas. The beginning Vinyasa class—particularly fitting for new practitioners—emphasizes the fundamentals of movement and the development of a relaxed sense of awareness. Alternately, the Baptiste Power Vinyasa class, or Power Yoga, builds on the basics while gently nudging muscles toward increased endurance, flexibility, and strength. Relaxed elasticity extends to the class schedule, which showcases morning and evening sessions.
The dedicated instructors at MaxOut Crossfit subscribe wholly to the CrossFit fitness method, which has built a following on its constantly varying high-intensity functional movements. Following this body-sculpting regimen, they lead clients of all abilities through intense rounds of movements—best exemplified in the center’s workout of the day—which may include disciplines such as weightlifting, rowing, sprinting, and climbing rope. They also incorporate barbells, gymnastics rings, and kettlebells to pump up strength and endurance between each class’s warm-up and group stretching sessions. Each day, trainers craft a new combination of these workouts to keep muscles from getting used to routines or falling asleep mid-deadlift. The center’s nutritional program further helps clients reach their fitness goals with a diet based on the consumption of organic foods and avoidance of starchy carbohydrates.
