At Modesto Self Defense & Fitness, it's a family affair. Hardworking and energetic, the trainers from the Bucheli-Choate clan motivate their trainees with daily-changing CrossFit workouts that may include overhead squats, pull-ups, and lifting your grandmother over your head. They also help students tone and strengthen their bodies in boot camp, or dispense hard-hitting self-defense martial-arts skills in krav maga.
Fitness Evolution's gyms span the country, from California to Maryland, hosting hassle-free workouts on their high-quality equipment or in a wide range of group classes led by upbeat instructors. The staff strives to maintain an open, inviting atmosphere at all times, whether helping clients operate free weights or offering encouragement to Aqua Fit and indoor cycling classes. Fitness Evolution conveniently offers some nutritional guidance and exercise training online with goal-oriented workouts, meal plans, and recommendations on the best strategies for going outside.
The personal part of "personal training" at Core Fitness doesn't just refer to the studio's individual and small-group class sizes; it's also a statement about the studio's quality of instruction. Without resorting to cookie-cutter gym methods, its trainers take students through a blend of exercises drawn from Pilates, TRX suspension training, boot camps, and other approaches to fitness. Because Core Fitness keeps class sizes limited, students get the benefit of personalized lessons, and instructors don't have to rely on signal fires to explain each new exercise.
Located on the grounds of The House Modesto church, The House Fitness gives members a place where they can focus on their physical and spiritual health. The recently revamped 10,000 square-foot gym features ample free weights, cardio equipment, two racquetball courts, and space for group fitness classes, as well as an up-to-date cardio theater system that projects sermons from the church's pastor in addition to popular programming. Other amenities include spacious new lockers rooms, and a childcare center where exercisers can drop off their kids or favorite iguana.
It’s easy to see the imprint of Body & Soul Fitness founder Jade Reyes on his studio’s class curriculum. His specialty in dance aerobics is displayed in exotic-dance and Latin-dance-inspired Zumba classes. And his training in kickboxing informs not only classes in the same discipline, but also body-combat classes, which feature high- and low-impact moves to challenge exercisers of all fitness levels. He also specializes in spinning and knows much about massage therapy and relaxation, which explains why yoga is on the schedule and drinking Mountain Dew and screaming Van Halen lyrics is not.
A busy schedule can make it tough to find time to exercise. Aspen Fitness offers a solution: 24-hour gym access that allows members to work out at whatever time works with their schedules. Members can burn calories on the center's ellipticals, spinner bikes, and other training apparatus, or build sculpted muscles with the free weights. If desired, the center's friendly, supportive personal trainers help to ensure results with weight-training and weight-loss programs. A few other membership perks include 24-hour security, private restrooms, and onsite tanning beds.
