Our Mission Studio One to One provides personal training and nutrition coaching services in a private setting that eliminates the intimidation factor of traditional gyms. Our environment is designed to be supportive and nurturing to ensure the success of every client.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
The 3,200-square-foot fitness emporium boasts diverse equipment, certified, motivated trainers, and an inimitable approach to workouts not found at traditional gyms. Steeped in the CrossFit style, the energetic establishment tweaks routines to imitate everyday movements and cranks them up to high intensity for the ultimate experience in muscle building and caloric arson.
Started 14 years ago, Knuckle Up Fitness has grown into one of the largest fitness and mixed martial arts clubs in the Southeast. And there’s a reason for this gym’s popularity—KnuckleUp welcomes everybody, from professional fighters to absolute beginners, and employs top-notch instructors who’ve competed in hundreds of bouts. They also have a mission to inspire members who may be bored by tradition fitness regimes to commit to exercising and achieve their fitness goals by offering alternative fitness options.
Each of KnuckleUp’s three locations have more than 1,000 square feet of grappling mats, a regulation-size boxing ring, and plenty of heavy, speed, and uppercut bags for pummeling. There are also free weight areas, equipped with Life Fitness and Hammer Strength Nautilus machines, where clients can strength-train at their own pace. Skilled instructors lead classes in group cycling, wrestling, boxing and kickboxing, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Kali, and MMA, to help members get into and stay into fighting form, as well as learn to compete for titles and gain self-confidence. They also offer personal training and programs for kids, to start youth on a path toward self-discipline, physical fitness, and a role in The Karate Kid, Part III.
In addition to hosting cardio and dance classes in her studio Amoora Dance & Fitness, owner Suhad Nassar imparts the graceful undulations of Egyptian belly dance, striving to motivate women and children to lead healthy lifestyles while connecting with their sense of rhythm. Her belly dance cardio sessions blend aerobics with the eye-dazzling movements traditionally performed at Egyptian celebrations and weddings. Meant to be performed as an improvisational dance, the Raqs sharqi movements enable dancers to sway naturally to the sizzling music and the spontaneous rhythms of traffic horns. Because Egyptian children traditionally learn these dances in the home, Ms. Nassar fosters an equivalent level of comfort by encouraging group members to motivate and offer kind words to one another.
