LifeQuest Fitness fosters an inclusive atmosphere with specialized workout programs designed for families, seniors, and athletes. Though their club services run the gamut from sports-specific conditioning to onsite childcare, LifeQuest's first priority is to build a support network that welcomes new members, lifting them toward wellness goals with a combination of encouragement and helium-filled balance balls. At each of its locations, members pile on complete routines on the cardio and resistance machines, working up a calorie-torching burn before retiring to soothing saunas. Group classes open up nonintimidating arenas for yoga poses, Zumba twirls, and barbell weight lifts. For focused motivation, personal trainers shepherd exercisers through the fitness labyrinth and help them decode healthy eating with nutrition advice printed out on easy-to-carry Rosetta stones.
In addition to a full range of cardio machines and free weights, WellStar Health Place's expansive fitness center hosts a welcoming staff of degreed exercise specialists, health-care professionals, and licensed dietitians. As well as custom-tailoring personal-training sessions, the exercise specialists lead group classes for all ages, including yoga, cardio, and Zumba classes. A mere hop, skip, and Olympic-record lunge away from the indoor, heated swimming pool, licensed massage therapists indulge tired tendons with a combination of Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point techniques. A nursery staff tends to children aged 6 weeks to 11 years while adults work out, and afterward, the friendly fruitsmiths at Planet Smoothie's in-house location dish out refreshing, high-protein beverages to replenish waning moisture levels.
At Dahn Yoga - Body & Brain Marietta, seasoned instructors impart ancient yoga poses and relaxation exercises designed to balance the body’s energy flow.
