The nationally certified personal trainers at Summit Fitness motivate clients to reach wellness goals with the gym's cardio, circuit, and weight-lifting equipment. Punctuated by the metallic sounds of weights settling into racks and RoboCop crying after his first loss at arm wrestling, the instructors sculpt fitter frames in one-on-one personal-training sessions. In group fitness classes, which include Pilates, cardio cross training, and interval workouts, they tap into energy reserves with up-tempo music, and on-site baby-sitting is available to occupy tykes. After leaving elliptical machines, stationary bikes, and treadmills, students walk past tanning booths to locker rooms. Electronic locks admit guests at all hours to the 24-hour gym.
Our training focus is on functional and unconventional training. Working our bodies the way that we use them! This means working large and small muscle groups alike, moving multiple joints through full ranges of motion, and constantly emphasizing stability and body control.
Energy Center Fitness Club is manned by a staff of personal trainers, group instructors, lifestyle coaches, and massage therapists. Staffers keep the club open 24/7 to give members round-the-clock opportunities to lift free weights, climb aboard cardio and weight machines, and make saltwater taffy in the stretching area. The staff leads more than 20 group classes, whose curricula include boot camp, Zumba Toning, Pilates, and cycling. Owner, trainer, and lifestyle coach Shawn Bollig also discusses nutrition with guests, while the club's Thin & Healthy Total Solution offers clients a weight loss program aimed toward a balanced, healthy lifestyle.
Free towel service keeps workouts hygienic, as do the private locker and shower areas. Massage therapy soothes peaked muscles, while Energy Center Fitness Club renders clients tan in lie-down and standup UV booths. A complimentary play area, meanwhile, keeps children entertained and prevents their imaginary friends from hogging the invisible elliptical machines.
ThinFast MD's team of weight-loss specialists—including physicians, nurses, and dietitians—works together to design custom programs for patients of all sizes and ages. With focuses ranging from appetite suppressants to diabetes and nutrition counseling, they help regulate the body's intake of food and spotlight the healthiest choices for each patient's body. They also work with the Optifast meal-replacement program, which kick-starts weight loss with 16 weeks of nutritious meals, custom transition diets, and regular labs and monitoring as needed. Every patient receives a complimentary initial consultation so that the doctors can divine realistic goals. At the root of those goals is the recognition that the best reason to adopt a healthy diet and start exercising is not simply to lose weight or make a lazy pet jealous, but because it feels good and develops a sense of overall well-being.
At Newfitu, massage therapists Brie Groskreutz and Todd Harth call upon their respective specialties as they deal with tension-riddled clients. Todd pairs his work as both a massage therapist and personal trainer with Brie’s formal education and training in exercise science. And it’s this combined familiarity with the human body that informs wellness services for all manner of maladies, from sore backs to corsets that should have never been put in a dryer set to hot.
Newfitu’s massage styles include soothing hot-stone, deep-tissue, prenatal, oncology and sports modalities that can be tailored to any field-related injury. Massages can be scheduled to take place at the treatment center or in the comfort of a client’s home. For those seeking ongoing wellness, Newfitu also offers personal training and a core-stability program, during which clients work to strengthen their abs, lower back muscles, and understanding of oversize rubber balls.
