Gold's Gym began more than 45 years ago, and today features an impressive array of next-generation fitness gadgets, a results-oriented focus, and squeaky-clean facilities. With today's deal, one of Gold's Gym's staff of certified personal trainers will test each client's strength and flexibility, among other metrics, to help determine and design a personalized fitness regimen. Thus inspired, neophyte iron workers can complement their one-on-one sessions with regular attendance at the gym, where they can hop on a cardio machine, pump up in a controlled manner on strength-training machines, tighten up in the abdominal- and functional-stretching area, or stick with lifting huge, heavy pieces of metal and commercial chest freezers.
Within each noncompetitive Curves facility, female fitness seekers are invited to move through a 30-minute circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that are designed to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. Shunning cumbersome weight stacks, the hydraulic gadgets adapt to each exerciser's body weight and fitness level to complement her individual abilities, subsequently decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. And because traditional lift-and-lower motions tend to create bulky muscles, the machines promote push-and-pull movements to sculpt toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing unsuspecting grapefruit. Experienced trainers are always nearby to help clients manage their machine maneuvering, and a soundtrack of fun, upbeat music includes cues to let women know when it's time to move on to the next station or break for an air viola solo.
Classes at Dahn Yoga integrate the ancient Korean practice of Sun Do along with the latest findings in neuroscience and behavioral studies to help students boost their overall health and well-being. In each yoga class, a passionate and experienced guru first limbers up yogis with 10–15 minutes of warm-up exercises. Pupils are then chaperoned through 30–45 minutes of stretches, strengthening postures, and meditation exercises, all while clearing cluttered minds and learning to master breath control like a black-belt sousaphonist. After 10 minutes of cooldown exercises, students and teachers mingle to quaff an aromatic cup of tea. Instructors regularly assess students’ strengths and weaknesses, recommending home exercises to complement in-class practices. Dahn Yoga also offers tai chi, meditation, vibration, intestinal exercise, and other special classes based on location.
Tell the members of HKPK Las Vegas that it?s impossible to fly and they?ll prove you wrong. With 20,000 square feet of obstacles, a 16-foot ledge overlooking trampolines, and aerial silks that span the height of the immense facility, HKPK Las Vegas facilitates human flight. Its specialty is parkour, a style of movement that lets students traverse obstacles by running, flipping, and scaling barriers to find the most efficient route from point A to point B. To put extra spring in their steps, students can strap on velocity jumping stilts, or perform stunts on the professional spring floors.
