US 1 Fitness has sculpted local physiques for nearly 20 years in a 24-hour workout facility equipped with helpful staff and parent-friendly childcare. Designed for students of all skill sets, 25 weekly classes sling supportive group workouts that make muscles burn with satisfaction, like an insult uttered from the lips of a sarcastic fire swallower. Spinning students pedal toward fitness goals atop Johnny G bikes, as Zumba workouts incite a metabolic brushfire with fiery dance moves inspired by salsa, samba, and tango. Like a three-legged race with Sigmund Freud, yoga classes unite both mind and body with sinew-stretching poses, strength work, and focusing exercises, and Absolute Abs chisels cement-like stomachs with 15 minutes of intense core-centric conditioning. Consult the class schedule for specific dates and times.
Though no strangers to balmy temperatures, studio director Kristina Vecsesi and her fellow certified instructors credit Bikram's heated practice for fostering their personal journeys to health and wellness. Each 90-minute sweat session follows a 26-posture routine designed to warm and stretch muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the proper order. As the balancing and twisting postures increase strength and flexibility, the warm atmosphere helps limbs safely sink deeper into cobra impressions and expel harmful toxins through sweat. With dedicated practice, the Bikram yoga method has been known to help students regulate their body weight, relieve stress, improve circulation and digestion, and restore 20/20 vision to the third eye.
