At Hot Yoga Bikram Tysons, instructors foster a noncompetitive environment where students can pursue their own yogic goals in either a 2,000- or a 600-square-foot practice space heated up to 105 degrees with 40% humidity. A sanitizing system continuously refreshes the air while students follow their instructors through two breathing exercises and 26 standing, seated, and reclining poses, which methodically stretch and strengthen muscle groups across the entire body. As the students sink into each pose, the instructors walk about the room, gently correcting postures by offering hands-on adjustments, verbal guidance, or Pictionary interpretations of each pose. Although the studio's Flotex antibacterial flooring helps to keep attendees microbe-free during class, onsite shower facilities allow guests to rinse off any sweaty chakras afterward.
The Pilates Room keeps bodies and minds engaged and elastic with a plethora of Pilates classes and massage services, among other body-benefiters. Stabilize your core and strengthen your muscles with a Pilates group apparatus class (up to a $40 value), using equipment such as the Reformer and the Tower, or experience the energy harnessing known only to spilled milk and bearskin rugs with a floor class ($20), available in cardio ball, Hatha yoga, and stretch-centric variations. The Pilates Room puts clients on the road to wellness with spinning classes ($22 for one class, $80 for four), and sore joints and knotty nexuses will benefit under a foot-focused, 60-minute Reflexology massage ($75) or a 45-minute sinus/headache-relief massage ($60). Gyrotonic classes are available, as are airbrush tanning services—ideal for those seeking to add some bronzy brashness after a winter spent working tollbooths in Antarctica.
Bounce Fitness is all about each client's personal fitness goals. The certified, experienced personal trainers not only travel to meet exercisers at the time and location of their choice, a specialty served throughout the D.C. metro area, but also take a comprehensive approach to fitness. That means a fitness program is more than just a one-on-one training session: it also incorporates establishing healthy habits and building a rapport between trainer and client. Whether meetings take place at offices, homes, or even outside, the trainers create fitness regimens that can help people lose pounds, gain muscle tone, or get back in shape.
Since 1973, each of Sport&Health's clubs has aimed for full fitness coverage with programs for every taste and family member. Guests can spark positive lifestyle changes with workouts and wellness services, or engage in a variety of sports. Each facility houses different athletic amenities for games and laps, from pristine swimming pools to squash and racquetball courts. The camaraderie of group classes such as Zumba and Les Mills BodyPump barbell routines complement scores of club equipment meant for exercising solo—or with the guidance of a certified personal trainer. The clubs also emphasize kid-friendly activities with arts and crafts, Kidz Klub childcare, and youth certification courses that teach teens the ins and outs of training. Depending on the location, spa treatments can knead tension from muscles and paint one's favorite kettlebell with a layer of Shellac.
