The certified trainers at Core Body FX have helped change their clients' lives through fitness and exercise for more than 20 years. At their new facility in Apopka, state-of-the-art LifeFitness and HammerStrength machines shine amidst other treadmills and cardio equipment. Trainers individually guide clients toward their fitness goals during personal training sessions, or lead group classes such as bootcamp, Zumba, and yoga that build muscle, burn fat, and boost stamina. Nutritional counseling sessions reinforce fitness goals by encouraging a healthy diet.
Diamond Fitness doors are open 24 hours, housing a plethora of free weights and high-tech cardio equipment from brands such as Cybex and Life Fitness. Certified trainers teach members how to properly use this equipment as they work with them individually to achieve their weight loss goals. To help guests further tone and tighten, the facility populates its accommodating class schedule with a variety of short and long group sessions that focus on cardiovascular health, core strength, and flexibility. The licensed therapists administer a medley of massage remedies, such as deep tissue, reflexology, and trigger point, to shoo away body knots spawned from exercising or receiving an unlicensed massage from a sailor. In addition to offering complimentary childcare for members, the epicenter boasts a smoothie bar and tanning area with beds and stand-up booths.
The gym looks like equal parts Olympic training facility and old warehouse—here, exercisers hoist themselves up rows of pull-up bars, grunt around a collection of kettlebells, and hop through jump-rope routines. On a power-lifting platform, a lifter explodes from a squat, hoisting a plate-loaded bar up to his shoulders and then dropping under it to catch the weight over his head. Elsewhere, athletes do dips on gymnast rings and build a sweat on rowing machines.
This low-tech setting is typical of all true CrossFit gyms. Though the equipment may be basic, the results are not: CrossFit workouts develop all measures of physical fitness—from power to cardiovascular endurance—through workouts that are broad, general, and inclusive. This approach is often described as specializing in not specializing: it develops physical fitness in ways equally beneficial to everyone, from professional mixed martial artists and police officers to weekend softball players.
CrossFit gyms typically start clients in a foundational program where trainers teach the basic movements, such as the squat, dead lift, and pull-up. Every exercise is scalable to a version that clients can complete—a pull-up, for example, can be scaled back to a negative pull-up, a static hang, or body-weight row with gymnast rings. It can also be scaled to a more challenging version, such as the kipped pull-up. After students learn CrossFit's basic movements, they move on to open group classes, which follow the ever-changing WOD, or Workout of the Day. These workouts are short and intense, and they foster camaraderie through frequent team circuits. In addition to supervising WOD class, trainers coach members on nutrition, advocating a caveman-style diet of low-glycemic carbohydrates, monounsaturated fats, and lean proteins such as raptor meat.

My Gym, which currently has more than 200 international locations, began more than 20 years ago as a structured place for children to play safely, acquire new skills, and romp off a sugar buzz. All classes are organized according to age level—starting as young as 6 months—and are designed to incorporate the latest physiological and psychological research. Tiny Tykes gets babies moving with help from their parents, Mighty Mites teaches toddlers self-reliance and beginning sports skills, and Champions, a class for kids aged 6 to 9, emphasizes the importance of using teamwork to master more complex sports skills and achieve group goals such as building a human pyramid to reach the cookie jar. My Gym's energetic instructors are experts at using music, dance, and gymnastics to build youngsters' strength and self-esteem while stimulating their giggle-plexes. The noncompetitive environment fosters creativity, and hands-on activities boost children's learning retention and fun quotient.
