At Glam Tans Omaha, an even and rich tan comes by way of a 15-minute spray-tanning session. Clients have the option to first prep their skin with a body polish, which scrubs and exfoliates the skin with walnut shell and pumice. Glam Tans Omaha features products such as tan extender with almond oil, body wash with aloe and chamomile, and body shimmer with macadamia oil, all of which are free of preservatives, oils, and parabens.
Omaha Power Yoga's highly trained instructors help students empower their bodies and minds inside an intimate studio space made cozy by cork floors and glowing chandeliers. Teachers design sessions for students of all skill levels, including Basic Power, which focuses on imparting yogic building blocks including poses and breathing exercises, and Zyre Yoga classes, where students work through an athletic, muscle-toning series of poses. During all yoga classes, instructors ensure that students achieve correct spinal alignment during poses, which teach the mind and body to coordinate efforts for an increased sense of body awareness and fewer squabbles over who really holds the spleen's affections.
The YMCA of Greater Omaha brings people together at 10 locations with character-building programs that strengthen participants' involvement in their community. Adults can get a head start on their New Year's fitness resolutions with body sculpting, Pilates, and other tummy-toning group fitness classes, while kids can expend some energy at a drop-in child-care center that is free while parents work out. YMCA members also enjoy reduced rates on swim lessons and youth sports, as well as free senior programs. All locations except the LaFern Williams Y offer indoor pools for aquatic antics that cannot be properly enjoyed in a bathtub's limited splashing-real estate.
Taekwondo literally translates to "foot, fist, way." On the dojang's padded floor, it translates to precision, discipline, and self-confidence when in action. That's what Integrity ATA Martial Arts instills in their students aged 4 to adult. While training them in the Korean form of self defense, they focus on fostering real-world life skills that students can use inside and outside of their studio to better themselves.
With a focus on martial arts, the staff at Omaha Blue Waves Martial Arts and Fitness aids its clients in losing weight, and increasing endurance or challenge themselves during full-body boot camps. Onsite massage services soothe sore muscles after or before workouts.
Nationally recognized credentials are only the baseline of each trainer's resumé at Optimum Fitness. To top off their NSCA certifications, they all hold degrees in exercise science or a similar field, excluding easy disciplines such as medicine ball anatomy. In practice, they prioritize one-on-one interactions and customized workouts that eschew monotony in favor of motivation. Their high-intensity boot-camp classes keep guests engaged with ever-varying routines that combine calisthenics and weight training. One day, students might heave sand bags over hurdles, flip tires end over end, and complete reps of sit-ups, and the next they might swing sledgehammers, do squats across a parking lot, and push themselves on rowing machines.
In addition to group classes, they trainers lead private sessions at home or in the studio with a joint focus on exercise and dietary health. Working alongside nutritionists, wellness experts, and physical therapists—as well as the Titleist-certified golf fitness professionals who help students up their game—they inspire clients of all ages to achieve their fitness goals with positive motivation and at-home accountability via online advice.
