LimeTime Fitness boasts rows of great equipment—including Cybex treadmills, spin bikes, and TRX Suspension Training—and a friendly staff on hand to teach patrons how to use the equipment properly. Like the Hulk’s interior-design scheme, all the gyms have a purple-and-green color motif, adding pops of vibrant color to the free-weight-lined facilities. Students in each LimeTime class receive a heart rate monitor so that they can keep track of calorie-burn count and learn how to stay in their targeted fat-burning zone to maximize fitness results.
Inside LimeTime's gym, purple and lime-green walls—and exercise equipment to match—fill the space with vibrancy. That vibrancy is equaled by the trainers' dedication to one-hour interval-training classes designed to burn calories and sculpt bodies. Those classes include time on treadmills as well as resistance training using TRX bands and clients' own body weight. Ab Dollys, kettlebells, spin bikes, bosu balls, and dumbells round out an assortment of tools used in the program.
Yoga Source’s instructors run more than 90 classes each week geared toward students of all levels. Kundalini yoga classes work to relieve tension and increase energy, regardless of degree of flexibility or experience, using a symphonic gong to clear the mind while healing the body and elevating the spirit. Hatha yoga classes use stretches combined with breath work to develop flexibility and increase relaxation. To give back to the community, the teachers offer a free class that helps war veterans sleep better, lower their stress levels, and reduces their reaction to loud noises.
