Natural light flows through prismatic stained-glass windows inside The Yoga Place, a studio located a short walk from Bathhouse Row. In this scenic setting, knowledgeable instructors guide groups through classical and creative sun salutations and Vinyasa postures that combine flowing movement with measured breathing. The sessions aim to dissolve stress and tension while toning the physique and encouraging a healthy weight.
At Legit Fit Boot Camp, there are no machines. There are no televisions. There aren't even mirrors. The center's certified instructors take a no-nonsense approach to building strength and endurance by using simple weights, balls, and bars atop a stark rubber floor in each of their diverse fitness routines. Though the staff strives to stave off needless distractions, they detest boredom as well. That's why they keep muscles guessing by combining numerous exercises from different workouts and varying those exercises each day. The curriculum of jumping jacks, squats, and hopscotch games on hot coals ensure students never know what to expect, and the staff's enthusiastic demeanor keeps them focused on their calorie-burning mission.
In conjunction with the yoga studio, The Floating Lotus Day Spa aims to beautify and relax clients using all-natural therapies, including body wraps, organic facials, waxing services, and massages. Wielding Éminence Organics skincare products, aestheticians deep cleanse faces using biodynamic ingredients designed to naturally hydrate and rejuvenate faces. Within the day spa's private rooms, therapists use methods such as Thai massage and foot-focused reflexology, as well as warmed lava stones, to melt away any knots or stale marshmallows hiding beneath the skin.
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.
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.
