Tia Falcone wasn't always the muscular fitness afficionado she is today. In fact, there was a time when she was extremely overweight. It was only after she developed a fitness plan and healthy eating habits that Tia won her slim physique and sculpted abs, and eventually went on to earn her certification as a personal trainer with the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Today, Tia pulls from her unique experiences and years of training to help clients reach their fitness goals at her own studio—Tia Falcone Fitness. Within the bright space, Tia conducts personal-training sessions and group fitness classes such as kickboxing and body sculpting. She leads her students through high-intensity cardio and strength-training exercises using functional equipment, including exercise balls, resistance bands, and kettlebells.
Yogis stretch and strengthen muscles in Lotus Life Yoga Center's 2,000-square-foot studio during 16 meditative classes each week. Patrons lay mats ($2 for a rental) upon the hardwood floor before instructors guide bodies through a series of poses that strengthen cores without the discomfort of ingesting a bulletproof vest. The orange- and purple-walled studio heats up to temperatures of 90 degrees for hot yoga sessions. The steamy warmth helps students to move smoothly into tough poses and boosts calorie expenditure. Other courses introduce mat jockeys to prenatal poses and the breezy dance of Vinyasa yoga. Classes throughout the day help patrons of all levels of skill work around busy schedules to achieve calm without embezzling from sleepy mystics.
My Gym, which currently has more than 200 international locations, began more than 30 years ago as a structured place for children to safely play, acquire new skills, and romp off a sugar buzz. All classes are organized according to age level—starting as young as 6 months—and designed to incorporate the latest physiological and psychological research. Tiny Tykes gets babies moving with help from their parents, Mighty Mites teaches toddlers self-reliance and beginning sports skills, and Champions, a class for kids aged 6 to 9, emphasizes the importance of using teamwork to master more complex sports skills and achieve group goals such as building a human pyramid to reach the cookie jar. My Gym's energetic instructors are experts at using music, dance, and gymnastics to build youngsters' strength and self-esteem while stimulating their giggle-plexes. The noncompetitive environment fosters creativity, and hands-on activities boost children's learning retention and fun quotient.
