With hundreds of locations throughout the world, Fitness Together contours the global musclescape one individual at a time with customized workouts. Beginning with a body consultation and assessment, clients are classified into different training zones leading to goal-specific programs that help them reach their true fitness potential. During the 45-minute sweat sessions, a trained muscle tutor supervises squats to ensure muscles are properly stretched and showered in both praise and post-perspiring soap. The one-on-one attention allows the trainer to fine-tune movements, tone trouble zones, and push students to keep going when they'd otherwise quit or become distracted by the fragile beauty of a passing hummingbird.
Subversion Fitness helps those with fitness goals build stronger, firmer bodies through a roster of nine varied, boutique-style fitness classes. Spandex-clad soldiers join blistering boot-camp classes, scheduled as 40-minute midday sessions or early-bird meetings for out-of-shape ospreys. Instructors impart kinesthetic wisdom and lead clients in developing long, lean muscles through ballet-influenced barre body sessions, or empower students to push and pull their own body weight through TRX suspension training. Class participants also sweat during the confidence-bestowing moves of a cardio-kickboxing session or the fun, Latin-inspired Zumba dance class. Subversion's fitness fiends embrace a host of green techniques and practices, instituting a paperless paradigm, recycling water bottles, and adopting a filtration system for the coolers full of water that they dump on instructors after each successful class.
You can't get fit just by running or curling weights. A broad range of exercises always proves more effective, and that's why it is appropriate that Elena Ciccotelli, founder of TrainerDiva, Inc., draws on everything from ballet to yoga. Ballet-inspired strength-training classes, for example, tone muscles. Those muscles then become flexible in yoga sessions. During group classes, the studio might fill with the bouncing music that drives Zumba or the contented sighs of patrons finishing a core training session.
Transformation Fitness doesn't just see to the fitness needs of its own members. Its roster of health professionals, including yoga instructors, personal trainers, and massage therapists, works to design and implement fitness plans for area clients. The team maximizes sweat at its own storefront as well, leading classes such as kickboxing and Zumba six days a week.
At La Belle Fit, fitness classes, spa services, personal training, and nutritional counseling team up to lead patrons toward total-body wellness inside and out. Visitors can choose from more than 50 fitness classes at the gym's four locations each week, tackling sessions dedicated to dance, spin, barre, and active conditioning. Students bestride Star Trac Spinner stationary bikes in spin classes and line up at the ballet barre in Studio Barre, which combines elements of Pilates, yoga, and orthopedic stretching to form a low-impact, high-intensity program. To singe calories and tone physiques sans dance moves, trainers lead sessions of step, kickboxing, and TRX suspension.
La Belle Fit complements their group fitness programs with one-on-one personal-training sessions and body-rejuvenating massage services helmed by a certified massage therapist. An on-site nutritionist helps patrons maximize the results of their workouts by recommending healthy grocery shopping lists free of bacon-stuffed twinkies deep fried in bacon-stuffed twinkie fat.
Since 2000, Daddis Fight Camps has equipped thousands of students with the tools to be more confident and more effective in self-defense scenarios. Helmed by founder Brad Daddis, the Philadelphia- and New Jersey-based operation works with individuals all ages, genders, and athletic abilities. An assorted selection of programs speaks to that diversity, and includes Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai Boxing, and even a Tactical Urban Defense course. In that, students learn practical self-defense techniques, specifically those in close quarters combat they can use against a mugger or particularly tight blood-pressure cuff.
