With locales dappled throughout the Southeast and Midwest, the brains behind Workout Anytime funnel more than three decades of fitness-industry expertise into filling their gyms with positive vibes and state-of-the-art equipment. The fitness gurus spread Magnum-brand strength-training machines and cutting-edge treadmills—whose frames can support up to 500 pounds—throughout their hygienic antimicrobial floors. They also provide certified personal trainers, nutritional guidance, and weight-loss plans.
Workout Anytime's doors are open to members 24 hours a day every day of the year, permitting access to public exercise zones and areas that offer tanning and massage sessions. Each gym also strives to cultivate a familial atmosphere with staffers who memorize each guest's name and carve each one's Thanksgiving turkey.
The staff at CityFIT's spacious personal and group training gym offer customized attention to help clients reach their fitness goals. Here, certified personal trainers help gym-goers lose weight, tone up, or simply get stronger using a combination of cardio and strength-training moves, while group-fitness instructors lead high-energy boot camp, mat Pilates, and cardio kickboxing sessions. Students dance away calories during upbeat Zumba classes, or relax while gaining flexibility during flowing Vinyasa yoga sessions. With classes every day of the week and a friendly, knowledgeable staff, CityFIT is a welcoming place for clients to challenge themselves to get fit or their evil doppelgangers to arm-wrestle.
To date, 463 is the number of pounds that Pure Energy Fitness founder Cynthia Florence has helped her clients lose, and it's still growing. Weight loss has been a passion of Cynthia's ever since she spent years struggling with her own health and weight issues. As a certified personal trainer, nutritional specialist, and holistic health coach, she shares her knowledge with anyone hoping to improve their overall quality of life.
Cynthia's fellow instructors at Pure Energy Fitness also lend their expertise via one-on-one personal training and group fitness classes. The latter includes core-strengthening workouts, Piloxing's blend of muscle-toning Pilates and boxing techniques, and cardio-intensive Zumba sessions, which use simple dance choreography and energetic Latin music to get hearts pumping.
Step It Up Fitness’s immersive signature boot-camp program engages patrons in nutrition counseling and motivating group training that SmyrnaVinings.com lauded as the area's best boot camp in 2010. Four days a week, campers gather before dawn for 70 minutes of rotating agility drills, strength exercises, and calisthenics fueled by a trainer's ardent cheers.
After trainers test each participant's athletic mettle, they assign them to a team of similarly able bodies or similarly bodied androids. Group accountability and sweaty camaraderie knit these crews together to help their members build confidence as well as lithe, powerful physiques. An accompanying nutrition program extends camp support through mealtime, doling out personalized plans rooted in the food pyramid. Athletes log meals and resultant adventures in Slumberland in a journal to share with their instructors, who use the data to make recommendations for increasing energy and meeting fitness goals. In addition to its boot-camp classes, Step It Up Fitness hosts weeklong speed and agility classes for youths that are led by a staff of experienced certified instructors.
