Snap Fitness 24-7, bustling with cardio and strength-training gear, throws open the doors to its state-of-the-art facilities 24/7. Before exercisers put sneaker to treadmill or lift their first weight, personal coaches meet with them to talk about their fitness goals before suggesting a personalized fitness plan based on each client's strength, and cardio condition. The gym keeps members motivated with regular check-in calls and demystifies healthy eating with custom online meal plans designed by nutritionists.
FullForce Fitness bolsters bodily cores during its seven weekly sessions of TRX, a method of suspension training developed by U.S. Navy SEALS. During each 55-minute class, groups of up to 16 muscle muses maneuver a portable apparatus that builds power, strength, balance, and mobility, all without assuming an animal alter ego. Start with an Introduction to TRX class on Tuesdays to learn poses, foot and body positioning, and basic exercises to elevate fitness even higher above ground. Body-sculpt sessions engage muscles more actively than a biological pub quiz, and the cardio clocking of interval training properly burns the beers you would have drank anyway. TRX suspension training culminates with boot-camp circuit classes on Saturdays, an outdoor melee of tire flipping and sandbag dragging that can burn close to 1,000 calories per meet.
Fairtex was founded as a Thailand-based clothing company in 1958, but owner Philip Wong was not satisfied with just peddling fashion trends. On the side, he started a muay thai and boxing camp in Bangkok to indulge his passion for the sport. The camp flourished and became one of the first Thai camps to train European, American, and Japanese students. When Mr. Wong noticed the poor muay thai training Americans were receiving in their home country, he set out to bring his brand of training to the United States. Fairtex Muay Thai Fitness now boasts ten training locations spread across Thailand, the United States, Japan, and China.
The Mountain View gym is designed for cultural and knowledge sharing, housed in high ceilings lit by skylights. Full-size, 24-foot boxing rings stand permanently ready for training alongside 7-foot heavy bags, which are designed to weather the repeated impacts of sharp knees, elbows, and tongue-lashings from the coaches for always losing fights. Varied mat spaces are designed to host specific benefits to both striking and grappling arts, empowering students to stitch together a complete MMA education as they train in muay thai, Brazilian jujitsu, boxing, TRX, and strength and conditioning. The trainers offer coed adult classes and kid-focused programs, which help charges develop self-discipline, scholastic achievement, and self-confidence.
Voted Best Fitness Program in the Mountain View Voice for two years running, Overtime is a state-of-the-art edifice of exercise. Although modest in size, Overtime flexes an assortment of programs and equipment comparable to that of a large gym. During your complimentary one-hour assessment, the personable staff will learn your name and tailor a regimen that snugly fits your abilities and goals and number of arms. Each trainer is a bona fide foreman of fitness and will motivate you through painful patches, provide custom-made montage music, and regularly instruct you on proper use of the many machines. Strengthen sinew with iron-sculpting weight benches, bolster your biceps on the freestanding rock wall, or digitally calibrate your heartbeat on one of the virtual reality cardio-contraptions. Though not included in this Groupon, Overtime also keeps a massage therapist on-site to take the edge off of tuckered-out tendons.
