Pulse Studio Group Fitness makes a sedentary lifestyle nearly impossible to keep up, since clients can find encouragement in a range of group fitness classes. Whether learning new yoga poses, a calorie-blasting Zumba dance routine, or how to kickbox your way out of a locked bathroom, Pulse Studio's classes cultivate a fun, social atmosphere that makes workouts a bright spot in your day.
More than 100 pieces of workout equipment fill Butler Health & Fitness, but that doesn't mean you have to exercise alone. Group instructors lead yoga, Zumba, and senior-oriented SilverSneakers classes, and personal trainers lead one-on-one personal-training sessions. Other membership perks include access to saunas, tanning beds, complimentary childcare, and racquetball courts, which are just basketball courts for tennis players.
Focused Fitness' licensed and certified instructors help their clients stay in shape with personal-training sessions and a variety of group classes. Students can tone their muscles during Ab Blast, dance to Latin rhythms during Zumba classes, or exercise their entire body during boot-camp classes.
The team at Evolve Wellness Center is as multifaceted and well rounded as the integrated holistic and wellness services it provides. In addition to preventive healthcare treatments, the center offers clients fitness classes that aim to promote good health. Certified yoga and belly-dance instructor of more than 13 years Melanie Wood leads classes and sells her own handmade items and yoga accessories at the onsite boutique. Other classes include hula-hoop-based Hooperobix meditation, which facilitates self-discovery, and Capo-X-Fit sessions combine the African and Brazilian art of capoeira with functional movements such as running, crawling, and climbing a wall to escape bear hugs.
Staff members include a chiropractor, licensed acupuncturist, and practitioner of Chinese medicine. The center's ambiance mirrors its diverse approach to wellness: a glass case within the bamboo-inspired front desk displays folk instruments and Eastern-inspired art, and the spacious yoga studio's exposed-brick accents give a rustic feel to the warm, red walls.
IM=X Pilates' signature workout, IM=X, which is short for Integrated Movement Xercize, combines strength-training and cardio exercises for a high-energy session profiled in Fitness Magazine, Mademoiselle, and the New York Times. The IM=X schedule of classes includes Pilates floor sessions, which walk students through traditional, body-weight-based Pilates exercises that rely on balance and precise muscle control to build strength and improve three-legged-race times. True to the IM=X formula, instructors amp up the effectiveness of Pilates moves by integrating special equipment such as the IM=X ring and Body Bar. During yoga classes, students follow along with instructors, stabilizing their core and limbs through a series of challenging poses and balance-fortifying transitions to hone focus and muscle tone. Indoor-cycling students swing a leg over spoked steeds for a structured, instructor-led workout where cyclists can forge rock-solid cardiovascular health while tailoring intensity to accommodate their own fitness and cycling experience levels.
