B Yoga's team of certified instructors teaches a variety of yoga classes to hone the skills of students of all abilities. Beginners, students recovering from injuries, and wayward downward dogs can re-train their bodies and minds and help to restore health during the 75-minute gentle class, which harnesses the healing power of accessible yoga postures to open joints, ease aching muscles, and stretch tight ligaments. Fitness-conscious mat mavens flock to heated Vinyasa classes, practiced at a balmy 80-plus degrees, which tie studied movements to controlled breathing in a series of poses capable of building core strength, flexibility, and sturdy Amish barns. A one-hour prenatal class helps mothers-to-be to prepare their bodies for labor, and the Yoga - All Levels class uses breathing exercises and asanas to boost the stamina of Sting impersonators.
At the Lynn YMCA, members can workout in the gym and then record a song about it. Thanks to recent upgrades made possible by the Boston Celtics Foundation, professional-grade music equipment aids aspiring artists in their musical endeavors. Elsewhere at the Lynn Y, the usual amenities abound, including a six-lane, 25-yard lap swimming pool, an indoor track, a basketball gym, and two racquetball courts. The expansive gym has men-only and women-only workout areas, as well as a coed Nautilus Center stocked with free weights and cardio equipment. Lynn Y also boasts an air-conditioned aerobics studio that holds more than 30 classes each week.
Gravity has no control within Sky Zone Everett's confines. Inside, a sea of trampolines sends visitors leaping, spinning, and somersaulting toward springy floors and pits of foam. The bouncy surfaces stretch to the walls, where trampolines set at 45-degree angles let kids and adults repeatedly soar through the air like a superhero trying to wrack up frequent flier miles. Occasionally, Sky Zone transforms into high-paced competitions such as 3-D dodge ball and Sky Zone the Sport, during which players toss balls through continuously rotating goals. The trampoline-lined arena also hosts SkyRobics classes that utilize low-impact calisthenics and strength-building exercises.
To help women achieve their fitness goals, the certified personal trainers at Get In Shape For Women focus on four areas: weight training, cardio training, nutrition, and accountability. In small group sessions, trainers modify exercises to suit up to four ladies' fitness levels, beginning by calibrating strength-training sessions—such as free weights, lunges, and squats—to each client's abilities while still ensuring they are challenging themselves. Then comes high-intensity cardio interval-training sessions in which trainers encourage exercisers to achieve optimal results on the treadmill or elliptical.
The trainers supplement the group workouts with nutritional planning centered around the concept of eating six small, balanced meals six days a week. They set aside the seventh day as a "free day" for a bit of indulgence, be it eating a favorite sweet or lusting openly after bacon. To hold their women accountable, trainers talk nutrition on the floor during scheduled appointments, and the ladies' progress toward reaching their goals is measured by trainers each week.
