Instructors help kids of all ages develop their mental and physical skills with progressive gymnastic curricula at Pinnacle Gymnastics. There, vaults, bars, beams, and other equipment await students, along with experienced instructors. Classes, camps, and parties encourage young feet to bound across mats and spring off trampolines at a pair of gym locations. Kids can start taking classes at the age of nine months with parents by their side, and can continue through the program to join competitive teams or portray tumbleweeds in school productions of Oklahoma.

Children naturally believe that life is all about having fun. This requires the instructors at My Gym Children's Fitness Center to perform two seemingly incompatible tasks: helping kids lay a strong physical, emotional, and cognitive foundation and letting them laugh and play to their hearts' content. The staff welcomes the challenge. Grouping kids by age into nearly a dozen different classes, the instructors teach students aged 6 weeks through 13 years the importance and fun of socializing, exercising, and eating broccoli without using their taste buds.

While he was earning his degree in architecture, Caleb D. Howard hoped to build stunning structures that had a positive impact on passersby. As a certified personal trainer, his goal remains the same—he's simply sculpting bodies, not buildings. And, like any good architect, he isn't just concerned with outer appearances. He and his team take a holistic approach to exercise, focusing on strengthening their clients' muscles as well as their mental and spiritual resolve.
To that end, trainers might meet with clients for one-on-one Focus sessions, which are geared toward different levels of exercise experience from "novice" to "seasoned." These customizable routines can be adjusted to target a range of goals, such as mastering the sit-up to applauding at the top of each push-up. Split-Focus sessions divide the trainer's attention between two people, and friendly competition helps fuel these workouts. They also provide group power circuit classes that combine muscle-toning and cardio drills. Those who can't make it to the gym can sign up for online E-training, and follow weekly workouts and nutrition plans that present opportunities to make wholesome lifestyle changes.
