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.
Experienced and certified yoga and Zumba instructors lead classes at Cycle Fit Studios, where they strive to create an environment that is both challenging and fun for beginners and advanced exercisers. They offer classes in yoga, Zumba, and indoor cycling, the latter of which uses Star Trac NXT bikes.
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.
Jill Dailey McIntosh has always been intrigued by the human body and how it moves?so much so that she graduated in 1991 with a kinesiology degree and soon thereafter decided to open her own Pilates teaching studio. But it wasn't until years later that this curiosity would manifest itself in a single question: "How can one aggressively transform the shape of their body while still maintaining proper alignment of the spine?" Eventually Jill began to examine her diverse fitness background, pulling low-impact movements from ballet, Pilates, and even orthopedic-exercise routines to create the basis for her fitness style, The Dailey Method.
Now, 13 years after it was founded in San Francisco, Dailey's fitness routine has ballooned into studios sprawled across more than 10 states and gained praise from Self, Allure, FitPregnancy, and InStyle magazines. Regardless of the location, instructors remain true to Jill's mission of offering unique fitness classes that combine ballet barre work, core conditioning, stretching, and orthopedic exercises. The classes work to effectively strengthen and tone the entire body, with movements that are controlled, focused, and safe. Each set of exercises is focuses on students' entire body and mind, and is followed by a series of active stretches to help develop more sculpted and supple muscles.
