The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
CrossFit Gastonia?s strength and conditioning program values three things above all else: functional movements, easy scalability, and infinite variety. The gym's trainers create new workouts each day, combining Olympic weightlifting, gymnastics, and plyometrics to maximize results. Instead of treadmills and elliptical machines, they depend on more versatile equipment such as kettlebells, dangling ropes, and giant tires. And it isn?t just adults who benefit from the CrossFit workout; a CrossFit Kids program helps youngsters stay in good enough shape to make the boogieman think twice about interrupting their sleep.
When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. MetaBody created a real-life version of that ticket with the MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.
South Charlotte Crossfit is more than just a gym. Instead of leaving visitors to work out on their own, the team of instructors—including former athletes and two competitive-weightlifting coaches—fosters a supportive community spirit by embracing CrossFit’s group fitness regimen. The highly varied sessions provide full-body workouts by combining a variety of functional exercises, which can incorporate everything from medicine balls and chin-ups to free weights and sprints. To ensure that attendees safely push themselves while still getting suitably challenging workouts, the instructors allow each member of the class to either modify or intensify the exercises to complement their capabilities and fitness levels.
At CrossFit QC, dedicated instructors lead students through a highly varied strength and conditioning program based on functional movements.

When students are not toning their bodies at the gym, they can visit the Coach’s Corner on the website to find further information and inspiration to lead fit and healthy lives.
