Though group classes are ideal for keeping up the high-five quota, your private lesson focuses attention like a laser through a magnifying glass as seen through a telescope. Each closed-door class will not only make you sweat, it will help the instructor determine your individual fitness needs and therefore supply you with the knowledge necessary to succeed. Subsequent lessons will help iron out your wrinkling weaknesses and bulk up already present strengths. All of Pacific's impassioned instructors are certified in Pilates and attentive to the individual needs of muscles and their masters. Pilates classes help anyone improve his or her whole health, from muscle to mind, and no previous fitness experience is necessary.
When you take a Zumba class with Cynthia Healey, she wants you to forget that you're working out. Luckily, that feat is made easy with Cynthia's high-energy, simple-to-follow choreography, which helps clients of all walks of life pump up heart rates and tone their bodies. When the certified Zumba instructor isn't leading classes through workouts, she takes the stage as the lead singer for Concrete Loveseat.
At DEFY Aerial Fitness Studio, exercisers dangle from cascading strips of silk and pull off airborne feats of acrobatic prowess on low trapeze bars during exhilarating workouts. Small groups hover above the ground, stretching limbs into graceful motions that strengthen cores. Instructors also lead workshops that impart martial arts and Parkour techniques, such as vaulting, balancing, and quadrupedal movements that dramatically increase the chances of escaping an orangutan pursuit, unless that orangutan also studied Parkour. In addition to their regular class schedule, instructors host an open gym session that gives students time to practice their skills and further stick it to gravity.
Be Best Wellness's staffers supply exercisers with an array of services for getting in shape. To name a few, they stage initial training sessions at International Fitness, where gym staffers lead group classes, such as Zumba and yoga, at their facility. Be Best Wellness then creates personalized nutrition plans, recipes, and weekly shopping lists.
Studying under Kumu Hula Rich Pedrina has inspired Kimberly Clark to build on her passion for everything hula. She started Hui O Hoaloha Hula to share that passion and educate students about Hawaiian culture. In keeping the steps relatively simple and easy to learn, she ensured that the classes could be taught to anybody who's curious. She has also incorporated Hot Hula Fitness classes, using the dance's natural style of isolations to build specific muscle groups in 60-minute, full-body workouts. She keeps the workouts upbeat and energized with a selection of Polynesian drum beats and Reggae music. The combination of tunes and dance celebrates Polynesian cultures from around the world.
At Brynn's Barre None Callanetics, owner and instructor Brynn draws on her dance background to create rehabilitative workouts. She splits her focus between strength and safety: callanetics classes condition pelvic floor muscles with exercises that can relieve back and joint pain, for example, and boomer cardio classes mix fun dance choreography with low-impact movements. These sessions strengthen and bend the body with exercises that are designed with safety in mind, and are ideal for rebuilding strength after childbirth.
