Thirty-year dancing veteran and founder Dolly Kelepecz presents the D.K. method of Pilates, a method based on a series of smooth, controlled movements. Open-gym classes feature an hour of nonprivate instruction overseen by a member of the training squad, and grants unlimited access to all available equipment. D.K. body balancing melds floor and machine training with motions enhanced by spring and body resistance to bilaterally improve strength and flexibility. Fitness apparatuses include reformers, trapeze tables, combination chairs, and ladder barrels.
Within each noncompetitive Curves facility, female fitness seekers are invited to move through a 30-minute circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that are designed to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. Shunning cumbersome weight stacks, the hydraulic gadgets adapt to each exerciser's body weight and fitness level to complement her individual abilities, subsequently decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. And because traditional lift-and-lower motions tend to create bulky muscles, the machines promote push-and-pull movements to sculpt toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing unsuspecting grapefruit. Experienced trainers are always nearby to help clients manage their machine maneuvering, and a soundtrack of fun, upbeat music includes cues to let women know when it's time to move on to the next station or break for an air viola solo.
It might come as no surprise that a professional bodybuilder-turned-personal-trainer would name his fitness venture More Pain Please, but Michael Harris doesn't just mean physical pain.

Michael Harris is also certified in First Aid and CPR, ensuring he can get clients safely through their workouts.
