They further help to overhaul unhealthful habits by posting in-home workouts, recipes, and healthful eating tips on their website.
The supportive teachers at Yoga Palm Beach pursue the studio’s mission to improve each student’s overall well-being with a schedule of yoga classes that accommodates all skill levels. Cofounders Karen Burnett and Julia Zielinski lead the way as visitors stretch out their bodies during Vinyasa sessions that synchronize breath and movement; Vinyasa Power Hour sessions that improve strength, flexibility, and stamina; and free Connected Warriors sessions for active, inactive, and retired members of the military. Through the Karma Yoga program, visitors can participate in Yoga Palm Beach’s classes in exchange for volunteering at the studio.
The instructors at Body & Core Pilates Studio take their craft so seriously that they are constantly enlisting in training and seminars to advance their Pilates knowledge. This training informs the Pilates lessons they lead, whether they're devising a personal-training plan to tackle a client's unique fitness goals or overseeing a quartet of students as they work atop reformer machines. The studio has also added suspension training—which, like Pilates, strengthens and tones the core—to its class curriculum.
Nestled in a chiropractic and holistic-wellness office, The Good Life Center, FitVibes, and its staff help clients sculpt leaner, more toned bodies. FitVibes offers two services: an infrared sauna and the FitVibes machine itself. The staff can direct visitors to the sauna, where far-infrared heat waves penetrate the skin to promote blood circulation, detoxification, and to stimulate the metabolism. Alternatively, staff members may help clients use the FitVibes machine, which is a vibrating platform that stimulates muscles, assist in weight loss by shaking bricks out of pockets, and create a leaner look.
At Busy Body Fitness Center, members take advantage of a full slate of modern and old-school training techniques. Certified instructors lead sessions in modern fitness trends such as TRX suspension training, P90X, and Zumba, as well as the centuries-old practices of Hatha and Vinyasa yoga. Students can sculpt stronger arms during Extreme Boxing classes, build a rock-hard core with Pilates, or dance their way to tighter thighs during Zumba and Dance Jam sessions.
Founder and lead instructor Jamar has spent more than 25 years empowering students to take control of their lives by sharing his own inner journey through yoga. A certified Kripalu yoga instructor and meditation teacher, Jamar infuses each session of focused breathing and movement with his dedication for seeking the Higher Self. The yoga studio's dark wood flooring, green earth tones, and tranquil lighting cultivate a relaxing environment where students peacefully work their way through the Hatha-style poses paired with meditation and inner reflection, striving to calm the mind's constant nagging about remembering to breathe. The studio hosts more than 30 classes and workshops each month— including Zumba, belly dance, hoop, and tai chi, in addition to yoga—as well as regular presentations from guest speakers. Just beyond the meditation floor lies a metaphysical gallery of books, jewelry, healing stones, and crystals to supplement students' practice.
When owners Tom and Kristie Kiper decided to open a gym, they were determined to make it accessible to everyone of all fitness levels. Today, they and their team of trainers teach the CrossFit system to fulfill that goal, as the system can be scaled and customized to suit all levels, from elite athlete to someone brand new to the world of fitness. They also offer continuous encouragement during intense sessions of ever-changing daily workouts that utilize functional-movement exercises, such as tossing medicine balls, jumping on and off plyometric boxes, and lifting weights. It’s a system, too, that rewards participants with enhanced agility, strength, and speed while prepping them for all work, sports, and daily activities.
