No men, no makeup, no mirrors. It's a philosophy that?s helped members of the Curves community since 1992. Part fitness center, part community center, Curves is a women?s only club that takes a streamlined approach to health, fitness, and weight loss. Curves has teamed up with health and fitness coach Jillian Michaels to develop full-body, 30-minute workouts that kick-start weight loss, combining strength training, cardio, and stretching into sessions that torch fat, build strength, boost intensity, and prevent plateaus. These workouts are enhanced further by the Curves Complete Program, available for an extra fee, which is rooted in Curves' method for effective weight loss in that it supplements efforts at the gym with personalized meal plans and weekly one-on-one meetings with a certified Curves coach.
TeamCurnow is run by a group of wellness-minded women, led by owner and fitness trainer Amy Curnow. Amy and the trainers at Teamcurnow help the women stay fit and healthy through group fitness classes, personal training, and nutritional guidance.
Strength and conditioning specialist Tony Maslan?who is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist as well as a 1998 Junior American Deadlift Record holder?knows the importance of safe and well-rounded fitness practices. The former Marine Corps Reserves sergeant and overseas infantry squad leader leads a team of more than 15 certified trainers in their mission to help individual fitness-seekers, children, and corporate clients break unhealthy habits. This goal-oriented staff emphasizes accountability and measurable results during one-on-one and group training sessions as they reshape clients? waistlines with kettlebells and deadlifts, as well as intense challenges such as sparring and pulling a truck using only their pinky finger. The on-staff nutrition counselor bolsters these results with comprehensive nutrition guidance, and posts diverse recipes online as well. Of this, Maslan stated that he "knew we needed to help clients go beyond the microwave." To help keep their clients from returning to their previous lifestyles, these trainers also host online, in-home, and sport-specific training.
Maslan trains his students at Bob's Gym, a destination for Evansville-area athletes since 1991. Custom Fit training forms a single facet of the local exercise empire, which stretches across four convenient locations across the city. Each gym is also home to strength and cardio equipment, as well as a weekly schedule of more than 150 total group exercise classes in the areas of boxing, Zumba, yoga, and more. However, each location also courts its own special athletes; swimmers head to the pools at Bob's North and Bob's Newburgh, and basketball seek pick-up games on the courts at Bob's North, Bob's Newburgh, and Bob's West. Bob's East even sports a day spa, where tired exercisers can rid themselves of soreness with a relaxing massage. This dedication to healthy living extends far beyond reps and workouts. The gyms are also home to the Simply Basics weight-management program, which pairs accountability and lifestyle changes with healthy, affordable recipes designed to replaces processed foods with fresh ingredients.
Nitro Fitness's juxtaposition of silvery fitness machinery and inviting atmosphere displays the center's dedication to maintaining an ultra-modern fitness facility while curating a chummy exercise community. A three-month pass unlocks 24-hour access to the facility, with 12 staffed hours to further ensure assistance and oversight by friendly trainers accommodating guests across the athleticism spectrum. Patrons can oust unwanted calories with cardio equipment such as treadmills and steppers, or chisel muscles by playing patty cake with a fleet of TuffStuff resistance machines and free weights. Along with solo workouts, exercisers can enlist in group classes, including yoga, BoxFit, Tri-Fit, and Zumba. After fitness classes, students can venture to the gym?s locker rooms, which house large, walk-in showers for freshening up post-workout or testing the efficacy of a recently purchased umbrella.
The trainers and technicians at Body Makeover eschew fitness fads for nutritional advice, aesthetic treatments, and workouts. Spray tans prepare newly chiseled bodies for games of hide-and-seek in bronze sculpture gardens, and skin-tightening body wraps employ a detoxifying slimming formula to flatten stomachs and add firmness to skin. Alternating sounds echo throughout the gym, where personal trainers plot individualized routines for their clients and oversee the safe execution of each weight lift or lunge. Depending on the customer’s personal fitness plan, the trainer may suggest the gym’s signature 30-minute super-circuit workout, which positions strength-training exercises against an aural backdrop of motivational music.
