Although Intersport Fitness Center houses a sprawling weight room, there's still space for exercisers who don't want to work out alone. The facility's staff schedules one-on-one personal-training sessions and weekly group-fitness classes, including cycling and aerobics. Topping things off are amenities such as saunas.
SOS Club is an unusually luxurious take on a gym—for one, there's an on-site bar and restaurant. For another, there's not one swimming pool, but three, including a heated one. The array of sports courts, meanwhile, ranges from tennis courts to basketball ones. For a group workout, members can also take to the group fitness studios, for sessions of mini-ball Zumba, Pilates, yoga, or pirate toga.
At IS Tribe CrossFit, a team of qualified trainers help students of all skill levels and body types exceed their personal fitness goals with team-oriented workouts that build functional strength, endurance, and lean, rippling muscle. Rather than sentencing their classes to boring bouts on a treadmill, instructors keep their pupils engaged and ready to face any challenge with ever-changing interactive Workouts of the Day (or WODs), which include tasks such as flipping tires, hoisting barbells, and throwing weight machines into the sun. During one-hour workouts, members build bonds with their fellow trainees, pushing each other to crush their self-doubt and boost their confidence as they build muscle and burn fat.
The first time Marqus Crawford ever stepped onto a basketball court was as a freshman in high school. With a whole lot of hard work, Marqus went on to set records at his school and earned a scholarship to play in college. Eventually, he began sharing his wisdom as a coach. Over the last three-plus decades, Marqus has had stints coaching at San José State University, San José City College, and now at MC-Elite Basketball Training. There, Marqus emphasizes the fundamentals of the game, including ball handling, shooting, and basketball IQ. He improves the skills of both male and female players, offering training sessions in private, group, and team settings.
Unfortunately, when it comes to getting fit, hard work is not enough. To reach their fitness goals, athletes need to know what kind of workouts will help them shed pounds or build up the bulky muscles needed to fill out a gorilla suit. Knowing this, Velocity Sports Performance’s crew of certified trainers leads clients through personalized workouts inside a sprawling 18,000 square-foot facility. There, they show guests how to master balance boards, power lift, and perform parachute sprints on Astroturf, depending on their agenda. Athletes with similar ambitions can be taught in group sessions including speed camp for kids aged 9–18, boot camp classes just for the ladies, and workouts designed for pros such as Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller.
An enormous arena made of stretchy trampolines is the centerpiece of Rockin' Jump, a 10,000-square-foot facility dedicated to the bouncing arts. In another elastic arena, jumpers spring into the air to slam-dunk balls into basketball hoops, or zig and zag during games of dodge ball. You can also vault off a trampoline launch pad into a huge pit of soft foam blocks.
Safety is key at Rockin' Jump. In addition to outfitting the place with ample padding and netting, the owners have employed trained Jump Patrol monitors to prevent overcrowding and unsafe jumping. With an onsite café and private party rooms, the springy playground is an ideal venue for kids' birthday celebrations and other special events.
