In addition to being a trainer, Steven Hartman considers himself a professional motivator. His knack for instilling confidence and determination in others led him to create Dedicated Motivated, where he and his fellow instructors help guests pursue a fitter lifestyle. The facility offers an open gym, weight room, group classes, and personal training, allowing guests to pursue almost any fitness goal. If you'd rather not pummel a punching bag on your own, you might take a boxing class. Or if you're more of a dancer, drop by one of the Zumba sessions. The schedule also includes Dedicated Motivated's signature class, which draws its circuit workouts from both military-style boot camp and mixed martial arts.
Snap Fitness's easyFIT monitor is a small, clip-on accelerometer that helps keep track of daily exercise. Unlike pedometers that merely measure steps and spy on daydreams, the easyFIT monitor senses the intensity and duration of physical activity, transmogrifying those stats into simple, numerical points that help assess activity levels from sedentary to peak performance. In addition to tracking exercise in real time, easyFIT monitors can connect to the wearer's personal web portal to upload data and create fitness graphs that help show progress, snag exercise suggestions, and stave off the temptation of living next to a hamburger farm. Watch a video about the easyFit here.
Anytime Fitness, which boasts 1,689 clubs in North America, makes it easier for average folks to etch out time for exercise by doing one simple thing: staying open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. As fitness-seekers challenge themselves on cardio and strength machines and hoist free weights in clean, well-stocked facilities, security monitoring ensures they’re safe and producing enough sweat to meet official government standards. Members can also ramp up their exercise regimens with the help of Anytime Fitness’s staff of personal trainers, while tracking their fitness progress and meals in the innovative Anytime Health system. After workouts, guests can shower in the private restrooms or bop into one of the tanning booths.
Inside Prodigy Training Center's state-of-the-art facility, rows of weight-training equipment and a turf training area form the venue for all manners of pulse-pounding workouts. Here, seasoned fitness coaches push their students to the limit as they help them shed pounds and build overall strength and endurance. In addition, the studio conditions minds and muscles during several self-defense classes, including krav maga, jujitsu, mixed martial arts, and wrestling.
During your month-long trial membership at Anytime Fitness ($44 for fitness, $35 charge for key), you can re-bloom your wilted health with the state-of-the-art facility's diverse range of cardio and strength equipment. Exploit muscles for non-financial gain with free weights, tone legs on the treadmills, undergo a demanding tour de fitness-center via exercise bikes. Although not included with this Groupon, if the flawed workout plan you concocted yourself results only in frighteningly muscular ring fingers, one of Anytime's motivating trainers can prescribe a regimen designed to help you meet your fitness goals. Complete the sculpting of your flesh-statue with an Apollo finish in Anytime's tanning beds ($25 tanning fee), and then purify yourself of sweat and fried-cheese memories in Anytime's private showers.
Many are familiar with the saying "Love what you do and do what you love," but few actually live it. When Missy Steed discovered massage therapy, she finally found the thing that made her truly happy: making others happy. A graduate of the Dayton School of Medical Massage, Missy is well versed in most of the classic treatments, including relaxation, deep-tissue, and cold-stone massage. Additionally, she is also a certified infant massage instructor who leads classes that teach parents how to pamper their little ones at home. These classes, and the subsequent treatments lavished upon the lucky kids, can have numerous benefits. They promote bonding between parents and children and also relax infants after a long day of refusing to eat or arguing with the cat about whose tiny sweater is cuter.
