Classically trained dancer, fitness enthusiast, and Cancer survivor barely scratch the surface when describing Serenite' Fitness’ owner Karen Boynton. For Karen, fitness and dance have been a lifelong pursuit, and she blends the two at Serenite' Fitness, where she and a team of certified instructors guide students through revolutionary BarreAmped classes. Using a ballet barre, students balance as they perform small, isolated muscle movements while holding challenging postures. They might also take to the ground to perform Pilates-inspired movements or stretches, all working to boost metabolism, burn fat, and increase flexibility.
Renee's Groove Room welcomes guests of all fitness levels to partake in upbeat Zumba dance classes, Vinyasa-flow-yoga sessions, and kickboxing and fitness classes. Without burdensome membership fees or long-term contracts, visitors are free to drop in for classes of their choosing.
Minty-green and cool-blue walls set off by polished hardwood floors create a serene setting for reformer- and mat-based workouts led by Pilates instructor Shana Wilson Doyle, who spent nearly a decade honing her Stott Pilates skills. Group mat classes vary in difficulty to help practitioners of all fitness levels protect their precious caramel centers by building tough abdominal shells. Specialty Pilates equipment, such as the reformer and the tower, enhance private and semi-private sessions, where Shana guides students through efficient resistance moves and can provide clients with more personalized attention.

CrossFit-affiliate gyms usually aren't referred to as gyms. Instead, they're known as boxes, which speaks to the average CrossFit gym's spartan, stripped-down look. They house the most basic equipment—such as barbells, boxes, medicine balls, kettlebells, jump ropes, and pull-up bars—for performing fundamental, yet challenging, exercises, such as such as kettleball swings, squats, and burpees.
The coaches of CrossFit Hendersonville welcome their members to a similar setting, where they uphold the CrossFit mission of offering a balanced health-and-fitness program. Each workout of the day, or WOD, is different from the day before to constantly vary the demands on participants bodies, which develops all aspects of their personal fitness rather than favoring one over another. In addition to the WODs, coaches lead specialty programs, such as foundation classes for those new to CrossFit, ladies-only boot-camp classes, and nutritional guidance for those prone to eating their jump ropes after class.
