Jazzercise's instructors pack dance-based cardio, resistance, and flexibility training into 60-minute group boogie sessions. Each class begins with a gentle warm-up followed by 30 minutes of aerobics and strength training using weights, resistance tubes, and baseballs that have been purposely waterlogged. During sessions, exercisers cook a fitness stew with ingredients from jazz dance, Pilates, yoga, and kickboxing to stimulate the cardiovascular system. A soundtrack of top 40, jazz, country, hip-hop, funk, rock, and Latin-inspired music blasts in the background as certified instructors lead participants through dance routines that, like glow sticks in a cave, are easy to follow. Classes conclude with stretching to loosen up joints and limbs for the next visit.
Whether bouncing, swinging, shooting, or running, visitors to Adrenaline City partake in a heart-pounding, exhilarating experience. Four massive attractions let kids and families take their pick of amusements—choose the trampoline park, and you'll jump and flip over 11,000 square feet of wall-to-wall trampolines. Choose the ropes course, and you'll balance over rickety bridges, swing above the ground, and wind your way through rope forests while safely tethered to the ceiling. Laser tag grants players with a virtually infinite variety of game modes that only make the 6,200 square foot arena awash with black lights, fog, and obstacles that much more thrilling. For a real-life video game experience, try Time Freak—the colorful game challenges players to see who can press a bounty of lit-up buttons the fastest, leading to a frantic match that requires speed, concentration, and a promise not to play the game on public elevators.
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.
The Yoga Stand's friendly, experienced head instructor is dedicated to the Vinyasa yoga discipline and offers two distinct classes. Vinyasa strives to channel the "energy that flows without resistance," helping to strengthen and balance the masts of your soul vessel until it gently glides toward soothing jets of remote Jacuzzi seas. The Beginning Vinyasa classes — particularly fitting for new practitioners — emphasize 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. The relaxed elasticity extends to the class schedule which showcases morning and evening sessions.
Elite Fitness Studio trainers Gilbert and Lauren Navejar transform people of all shapes, sizes, and fitness levels into cardio crusaders using an integrated approach that works the whole body. A regimen designed around bodyweight exercises such as crunches and pushups builds muscle, burns calories, and increases strength and endurance. Unlike many machine weight-based workouts, the program's creative calisthenics target both large and small muscle groups. Mirrors line Elite Fitness’s spacious studio so that exercisers can evaluate their form and easily identify fitness-obsessed vampires. The four-week program consists of two classes a week, offered Monday nights at 6:30 p.m. and Saturday mornings at 10 a.m.
