The padded floor reaches from wall to wall, providing maximum space for Krav Fit?s students to learn optimal self-defense skills. The Krav Kids program teaches basic moves while instilling a sense of discipline and respect, and the adult program tosses in more difficult moves, like weight training and parallel parking. Instructors also teach individuals in law enforcement and the military.
The sense of harmony that pervades the atmosphere of Statement Salon, Spa and Fitness extends to the spa’s lengthy menu of treatments, all of which work in unison to imbue the body with beauty and health.

Miriam Lopez is a multitalented aesthetician who came to Statement after studying at a professional Paul Mitchell cosmetology school, hoping to extend her expertise towards a variety of services, including hairstyling, facials, and waxing.
Though a visitor to the tranquil spa’s treatment rooms might not realize it, the sounds of pulsating music and stretch-induced groans echo throughout the studio just next door, where trainers lead personal workouts and fitness classes.

Bodies by Bashay may lead group boot-camp workouts, but students will never want for one-on-one attention from their instructor. In fact, personalization and personal attention are what allow participants of all ages and ability levels to enroll in these high-intensity classes.

Owned and operated by fitness consultant Kathleen Rea, Regeneration offers yoga, Pilates, yogalates, and cardio sculpt classes for keeping the body as close to its factory settings as possible. The yogalates class is the result of cross-breeding yoga and Pilates, both of which are also offered as separate classes, and is designed to maximize the body's muscle tone, improve its flexibility, and pour a fresh batch of strength into its core. During the cardio sculpt class, light weights and resistance training help tone bodies while increasing the odds of out-swimming an angry hippo. Walk-ins are welcome, but calling ahead is preferred.
CrossFit Little Rock?s certified trainers have a 5,000-square-foot facility at their disposal, but they don't try to fill all that space with exercise machines that focus on one muscle at a time. Instead, they lead beginner and advanced classes that emphasize functional fitness, using all that space for exercises inspired by gymnastics, Olympic weightlifting, and rowing. The specific workouts change all the time, but they may include everything from swinging kettlebells to climbing ropes.
