PowerHouse Gym's expansive 15,000-square-foot facility stands on its founders' years of combined experience and previous health club ownerships. In designing the gym, they have called upon combinations of weight machines, aerobic equipment, and nutritional know-how to strengthen and tone bodies of virtually every fitness level. In addition to flooding their gym with up-to-date equipment such as step mills by Matrix and treadmills by Life Fitness, the team also carves out a cadre of boot camp, spinning, chisel, and personal-training classes.
Body Shop Total Fitness helps guests reach their health and fitness goals with a variety of amenities, from group fitness classes such as yoga and spin to one-on-one sessions with certified personal trainers. With early-morning and late-evening hours, the gym makes working out accessible for everyone. In addition to the fitness side of personal health, Body Shop also offers eight-week nutrition-counseling sessions and chiropractic care.
At Fit 'N Firm, women can workout in a supportive, non-intimidating environment. The gym features fitness equipment such as strength-training machines, free weights, resistance bands, and stability balls. They also conduct regular classes such as Zumba, yoga, and their signature PACE circuit program, which uses circuits of intense and light exercise to help shape the body without creating bulky muscles.
At most yoga studios, you can take a class that will help you relax or center your mind and body. But at EZential Wellness & Gurukul Yoga, you can take a class to improve your digestive system. That's because the instructors at Gurukul Yoga believe that the ancient practice not only helps people dealing with stress or bodily aches but also can be useful in treating medical issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity. So in addition to traditional Vinyasa flow and therapeutic yoga classes, the studio offers more specifically tailored sessions, such as Yoga for Spinal Health and Yoga for Digestive Health & Core Stability.
Aside from targeting a range of wellness goals, the studio's classes are inclusive of all ages. From Family Yoga to Yoga for Teens to Gentle & Chair Friendly Yoga, everyone from toddlers to seniors to toddlers posing as seniors can find a class to fit their needs.
Sphericality’s team of female trainers cultivates a motivating and nonintimidating workout environment where everyone is on a first-name basis rather than an AOL-username basis. During the diverse range of classes, the friendly instructors aim to work the entire body through yoga poses. In addition to classes, they host regular workshops to supplement workouts with advice on nutrition.
Today, it's undeniable: Jazzercise is a worldwide empire, spanning more than 1,800 locations and 32,000 weekly classes across the globe. It's also hip; gone are the leotards and legwarmers of the 1980s, replaced with a high-intensity blend of cardio, strength training, kickboxing and power yoga performed to hits by chart-toppers from Shakira to Justin Timberlake. The class formats, which vary according to different toning goals, are just as diverse as the program's move set, with recent additions such as Fusion, Core, and Strike broadening the workouts' variety and application. Instructors cultivate a noncompetitive atmosphere where all exercisers are welcome regardless of age, build, or fitness background. This sense of community keeps Jazzercise devotees coming back, but so too do the results; benefits ranging from weight loss and boosted core strength to increased flexibility and stress relief.
Jazzercise's continued success can be traced to the innovation of its founder, Judi Sheppard Missett. While teaching jazz dance in the 1960s, she decided to step away from tradition by offering an experimental class that allowed her students to simply dance without the judgment of mirrors or the constraints of rigid technique. Little did she know that this ?just for fun? class was the prototype for what would become the Jazzercise sensation.
