A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas?its more than 250 locations blanket 36 states and eight countries?Planet Beach Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. The range of services include total skincare, wellness, weight management, relaxation and renewal treatments. Other machines whiten teeth, spray-tan skin, and massage muscles. Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
This Groupon expires on November 31, 2011 and is valid at all five Modesto locations: 1234 McHenry Avenue (open 24 hours), 2700 McHenry Avenue, Floyd Avenue, Pelandale Avenue, and Prescott Road.
EveryBody Personal Training bolsters burgeoning muscle groups and augments overall well-being by pairing each client with a dedicated, knowledgeable fitness jockey. After scheduling a first appointment, workout gurus meet with their charges in a personalized facility to go over goals, expectations, and previous weight-wrangling experience. One-hour sessions may touch on stretching, cardio work, and ways to achieve the proper form required to master benches, squats, and other limitation-busting exercises. Additionally, a nutrition guide offers a measured path to healthful eating and exposes the problems with hardcore workout diets of raw eggs, raw steaks, and the raw emotion provided by scarfing down Mother’s Day cards.
Tina Kelly and Diane Flores, sisters and founders of Venus Pole Fitness, have always preferred doing things together. Throughout their adult years, they attended dance classes and boot camps, constantly in search of an exercise regime that was not only fun but effective. When they discovered pole-dance fitness, they instantly loved it and quickly purchased a pole, stage, and DJ booth packed with pop-music CDs. Their purchases led to the eventual creation of Venus Pole Fitness, where the certified duo teach ladies of all fitness levels and friction coefficients how to spice up their exercise regime and build their confidence through hip swivels and spins.
Since 1978, Brenda Athletic Clubs has stood out from other gyms for its staff?s focus on offering all the amenities of a modern fitness facility while still fostering an inviting atmosphere. Its founder, Al Brenda, believed in fitness programs for all age groups, a mantra that the club continues today with youth fitness programs, including basketball clinics and yoga lessons, as well as a SilverSneakers fitness program for seniors. In addition to tennis, swimming, and standard strength and cardio equipment, the fitness centers supply its members with an ample amount of group classes including cycling, Zumba, and kickboxing.
Simsfit transforms exercise-craving bods into fitness-friendly physiques in an intimate setting, using resistance techniques, kettlebells, and freestyle suspension training to burn potentially more than 500 calories in a single session. Small classes allow NASM-certified personal trainer Karen Sims to personalize exercise and nutritional programs based on individual goals, abilities, and which Dolph Lundgren character they’d most like to resemble. Before beginning training, Karen assesses her clients’ overall body composition to better focus efforts on reducing physique-concealing fat and to address any corporeal limitations or superhuman powers. Over the course of the 45-minute session, participants jump, twist, pull, push, and slam dance their way toward increased strength and improved muscle tone.
Get Fit Guaranteed’s Vickie Montgomery leads yoga flow classes perfectly suited to students of all experience levels. The slow-moving, intense sequence of asanas strengthens muscles, improves flexibility, and helps relieve mental tension with each pose transition. Each 50-minute session provides each limb with ample time for flexion, and the peaceful, spacious studio permits freedom of movement and eliminates embarrassing accidental high fives. Yoga classes are held Mondays at 7:30 p.m., Fridays at 5:30 a.m., and Saturdays at 8 a.m. Students are encouraged to bring their own mats.
The Yoga Loft's instructors specialize in three types of yoga classes: Vinyasa, Yin, and hatha. Vinyasa courses synchronize breath and movement, with the studio kept between 82 and 85 degrees. Things cool down during Yin sessions, which lengthen connective tissues, and hatha classes, which focus on individual poses.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
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.
Jenni Maiwald Wendell conquered depression and anxiety when she discovered yoga, which gave her both peace of mind and physical health. She drew on more than 20 years of dance training as she practiced Yin, slow-flow, Bikram, and Kundalini yoga. After much exploration, she completed a 200-hour power-Vinyasa training course through Zuda Yoga in Sacramento. Today she is the owner of Just Be Yoga & Meditation, where she helps students reconnect their minds, bodies, and spirits through classes held amid warm orange walls, wooden floors, and floating shelves stocked with blankets and candles. Her meditation classes cultivate awareness and peace while strengthening connections to the universal energy source, which is powered by windmills. Vinyasa flow classes seamlessly blend each yoga pose with breathing techniques and sun salutations to foster strength, flexibility, and balance. Jenni also offers Vinyasa and Vino classes, which include one hour of Vinyasa flow and meditation followed by a social gathering with wine and cheese from Fiscalini Farms.
Xavier and Heidi Gomez of You Can Dance Company bolster the skills of aspiring twinkle toes with group classes, private lessons, and open-level dance parties held virtually every week. Xavier has been teaching the hip-shaking arts since his teenage years, earning professional certification in the meantime through the Fred Astaire Dance Studios. Heidi supplements his ballroom expertise with a knack for ballet and aerobics, as well as an affinity for the showier flamenco, jazz, and belly-dance styles. Students can take advantage of both skill sets to hone their waltz, cha-cha, and rumba steps before emerging onto the dance floor at Shooters Pub & Grill or Crocodiles Nightclub to show off moves, sip drinks, and outperform imaginary backup dancers.
Basketball on Monday, racquetball on Tuesday, Zumba on Wednesday, swimming on Thursday, weight lifting on Friday, and a weekend of relaxing in the Jacuzzi. There's even an indoor-outdoor swimming pool open during winter and summer months, thanks to a convertible roof that facilitates year-round frolics. This could be an entry in a PE teacher's dream journal or a routine visit to Modesto Court Room Fitness. Its 35,000-square-foot gym has been shaking up workout regimens for 35 years.
Members climb aboard weight machines and cardio equipment under the watchful eye of a personal-training staff or jettison calories alongside peers in group classes. Two aerobics studios host classes such as body pump, yoga, boot camp, cycling, and Zumba or special sessions where guests tone on Pilates reformers. Patrons cross rackets on one of eight racquetball courts or drench a sweatband during pick-up games of full-court basketball.
Safavi Institute's elite and enthusiastic student body sculpts accentuating styles within a 20,000-square-foot cosmetology school partnered with salon rock star Paul Mitchell. Hair makeovers begin with applications of Paul Mitchell's own Awapuhi Keratriplex product, which deeply nourishes strands to leave tresses as smooth and strong as a body builder on a blind date. Then an adept stylist snips and combs locks into a desired 'do, cropping split ends and personalizing a style to account for tastes and tendencies to star in shampoo commercials. Safavi Institute's faculty and staff engineer also give back to charity with fundraising and grassroots outreach.
Of the 12 music teachers at Barker's Music, most have taught there for more than 18 years. So all of the instructors have plenty of experience teaching their chosen instrument. Music lessons cover piano, guitar and bass, violin, drums, harmonica, and voice. But the staff members also demonstrate their musical expertise in other ways, including tuning pianos and repairing guitars. And party hosts can call upon the Kyle Barker Band, which plays events ranging from birthdays to going-away parties for your noise-sensitive neighbors.
