Bulldog Interactive Fitness began as a facility exclusively for kids, combining fitness with summer camps, birthday parties, and other fun activities. From there, the trainers expanded to include the whole family. Kids play dodge ball, practice hip-hop cheer, or compete in bouts of indoor floor hockey, while adults kickbox or stretch into yoga poses. Should parents' workouts last longer than their offsprings', the kids can head to the supervised games area for electronic or tabletop amusements.
At Balanced Body Pilates & Yoga Studio, certified instructors strive to help yogis of all levels build strength, flexibility, balance, and focus through private, semiprivate, and group lessons held in its homey, intimate studio. Programs range from beginner yoga, which covers basic poses, breathing techniques, and methods of alignment and relaxation, to flow yoga, in which practitioners synchronize their breath and movements in a seamless dance resembling the Bohemian schottische. A gentle yoga course, comprised of leisurely Hatha–style poses, contrasts with power yoga, a vigorous Vinyasa–style workout. Patrons can choose from one-on-one lessons, semiprivate classes for two, or group class. Balanced Body Pilates & Yoga Studio will provide the equipment you need from its stockpile of mats, balls, and porkpie hats.
GoodLife Fitness augments a squadron of strength training and cardiovascular equipment with a packed schedule of energizing and encouraging group fitness classes led by skilled instructors. Delve into a Body pump barbell class, challenging muscle groups to a series of squats, presses, lifts, and increasingly complicated origami designs, or fortify weary musculature by wielding light weights during a Newbody class. Workout warriors can also test their mettle in intense Body Combat classes, merging martial arts disciplines to fill students with the strength and endurance to dodge roving packs of ice cream trucks.
Elite Fitness sprawls across 7,500 square feet, buffing bods and increasing lung capacity with 65 weight and cardio machines and more than 7,000 pounds of free weights. Group classes, including aerobics, yoga, and jiu-jitsu, ensure repeated workouts through communal encouragement, and complimentary personal trainers motivate muscles that refuse to flex or do their homework. Locker rooms provide lockable storage cubicles for finery and showers for rinsing off nonremovable attire. Members can celebrate successful workouts with a fruit smoothie blended at the Elite Fitness smoothie stand or can give melanin a workout in a stand-up tanning bed. Free parking is provided; however, those who prefer a motorless treadmill can walk or propel a giant hamster ball to the gym along Tay Shore Trail.
