Along with the wide variety of group classes, the newly renovated fitness center also has more than 40 state-of-the-art cardio machines. And after a great workout, members can treat themselves to a revitalizing facial or an infrared sauna treatment at the Shape-Up facial lounge and spa.
Fitness expert Christina Lucy founded Code Pink Boot Camp and has since expanded her fitness program into numerous locations throughout the western United States. Each of the trainers working for Code Pink claims extensive training and accredited certifications in the industry, and must undergo a strict audition to demonstrate their fitness prowess and knowledge of how many annual budgets each U.S. president could bench-press. With a schedule that includes several sessions throughout the weekday, the classes accommodate clients with varying schedules. During each session, instructors guide participants through high-intensity exercises that aim to incinerate fat, tone torsos, and improve overall well-being. The program caters to women of all ages and fitness levels and stresses safety, fun, and perseverance.

Core et' Barre pioneered the Formé technique, a combination of yoga, ballet, Pilates, barre, and core work aimed at bettering bodies. The workout draws from each of these disciplines over the course of 60 minutes, with practitioners gradually moving from broad flexibility exercises to specific motions focused on thighs, abs, and pantseat-filling posteriors. Follow the lead of Core et' Barre's instructors as you monitor the flow of your breathing and bring stability to your core during the Pilates-influenced elements, or unleash the black swan within during the ballet-inspired portions of Formé. Core et' Barre funnels the Formé formula through several different class types, including a calorie-burning cardio version. Check the schedule for options.
