  • Performance Science Training Institute
    C.J. Easter understands the value of physical fitness. As a former defensive back who faced some of college football's most fearsome offenses during a four-year stint with the Stanford Cardinal, he could only be as effective as he was lean. With visions of sleek physiques in mind, Easter earned his personal-training certification from the American Council on Exercise, founded Performance Science Training Institute, and set to work devising a fitness system of his own. The gym's exclusive Metabolic Movement Training (MMT) System is the result of all that hard work. The system is designed to jump-start the metabolism, so it continues working long after the session is complete by helping the body burn fat all day long. After a dynamic warmup to boost flexibility and coordination, trainers lead students through progressive resistance training to strengthen bones and muscles. Next, exciting, short-burst cardio intervals work to condition the heart and lungs and boost endurance, and a final core-training session chisels the midsection. Every exercise includes modifications and progressions to ensure students at every fitness level will glean benefits, and every session ends with a cool-down and stretch to leave bodies feeling better than when they came in. The institute's team of instructors also augment MMT exercises with counseling on how to make responsible nutritional decisions and set goals that are both challenging and achievable. This all-over approach doesn't simply help people get fitter; it helps them remake their entire lives in a healthier, happier image.

  • Vivre Fitness and Wellness
    Vivre accommodates each guest's exercise preferences and cardio curiosities with a range of fitness classes and high-quality cardio and strength-training equipment. Membership benefits give runners, Pilates buffs, and karate children full access to the gym’s class schedule of quadriceps-building kickboxing classes, aorta-pumping spin classes, and chi-harnessing yoga classes. Patrons looking to fly solo can commit flagrant arson on innocent fat cells with treadmills, stationary bikes, and elliptical machines—many of which are equipped with personal TV screens. Vivre’s intimate studio spaces make it easy for sweat donors to chat and socialize with one another, and its certified fitness trainers are more than happy to explain the difference between a dumbbell and a Liberty Bell to bewildered eighteenth-century time-warp victims. Chill out after a hard day’s muscle blasting with complimentary coffee and water before wicking off with a provided towel in Vivre’s clean and fully equipped locker room. Childcare services are also available to members for $7 per hour.

  • Core Studio
    Though Core Studio's workouts blend elements of Pilates, resistance-training, and strength-training, the company's entire program has three core methods: SPX fitness, Core Barre, and RealRyder indoor cycling. Each of the studio's instructors are masters of both. The Core SPX workout has a specific science designed to work muscles toward their limits and the heart toward victory. Armed with this knowledge, the instructors motivate clients to sweat through flexibility and core-strength-enhancing workouts in four classes: Core SPX, Core Barre, Core Cycle, and Core 30/30, a blend of SPX and Cycle. SPX workouts use the Megaformer, a state-of-the-art Pilates reformer that relies on spring resistance, whereas Cycle classes use the RealRyder indoor cycle?a stationary bike that isn't actually stationary. As it turns and tilts with riders, mimicking the motions of a real bike ride, the machine encourages functional movements, such as pedaling faster to escape a pack of invisible wolves.
