The fitness instructors, personal trainers, and nutritionists at ClubSport wield the foundations of total-body wellness: detailed knowledge and cutting-edge equipment. Group classes such as cardio kickboxing, cycling, and circuit training showcase routines for all fitness levels, seven days a week. Personal-training sessions, meanwhile, bring help exercisers develop their own fitness plans and face down the imaginary knight that guards every piece of weight-training equipment.
ClubSport also transforms bodies outside the fitness studio and weight room. A self-described resort-style aquatic center features several lap and exercise pools where swimmers can fine-tune their breaststrokes and favorite shark calls. At an on-site spa, massage therapists ease muscle tension with modalities ranging from hot stone and prenatal to trigger point and reflexology.
As they enter the training at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby, trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
CrossFit is so named because of its mix-and-match fitness philosophy, forging a veritable Venn diagram of techniques. The fitness lines are blurred inside the 5,000-square-foot facility as routines glom together to challenge every bodily facet from the biceps to the bifurcated hooves. The workouts shift and change with the regularity of an animorph and are composed of functional movements such as pushing, pulling, squatting, lifting, rowing, and more. Everyone is welcome, from octogenarian cage fighters to 20-year-old Internet potatoes. Regardless of gender and fitness level, CrossFit's routines and supportive trainers help exercise-pilgrims progress toward stupendous health. The knowledgeable staff keeps things running smoothly and safely, for the benefit of all involved. Check out the schedule for the CrossFit conditioning and “daily workout of the day” (w.o.d.) classes available with the unlimited month-long membership.
The Quad Fit Mall takes its name from that portion of college campuses known to draw students to play frisbee, engage in philosophical debate, or pretend to do things on the off-chance there's a student-magazine photographer around. The Quad's students, though, find their sense of community in the mutual pursuit of fitness. The gym houses plenty of strength-training and cardio equipment, but most of the action tends to happen in its specialty classes. In addition to Absolute Barre classes, the club has group workouts that include boxing in Concrete classes, a combination of lifting and gymnastics in CrossFit classes, and cross training at altitude in AirFit. To help these intense workouts fit easily into members' schedules, The Quad offers full-day childcare services seven days a week so students won't be embarrassed if a kindergartener can dead lift more than them.
