The YMCA is a cause-driven organization that is for youth development, for healthy living and for social responsibility. That?s because a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. All of our YMCA of Coastal Georgia locations embody these three values so that everyone regardless of age, gender or income is given the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive at the Y. With a variety of group fitness classes ranging from Zumba to family fit nights, spin classes to TRX and everything in between, you?re sure to find what you?re looking for at the YMCA! Our staff pumps up adult fitness regimens with aquatic fitness and boot-camp classes, basketball courts, personal-training sessions and so much more. We?ve also filled our fitness centers with free weights, cardio equipment, and weight machines. When they?re not helping adults trim down waistlines during Brazilian-jujitsu, cycling, and aerobics classes, staff members are getting back in touch with their inner children. They stimulate imagination, mental development, and growth as they lead children?s day camps, after-school programs, and numerous sports offerings.
FitnessWitness's experienced instructors invoke the power of group exercise through an eclectic schedule of cardio and strength-training classes in a supportive setting. Rev up the heart during 55-minute coed cardio stompers such as Step H.E.A.T., which combines Zumba-esque choreography with step aerobics, and Cardio Drums, in which students grab a pair of drumsticks and pound along to upbeat music, working out the upper body and hard-to-reach inner teenager. Exercisers brandish dumbbells and stretch resistance tubes tailored to their comfort level in the Strength & Balance circuit-training class. To lengthen and strengthen muscles, a FitWit Flow session fuses yoga, Pilates, and balancing exercises popularized by oak trees swaying gently in the autumn wind. FitnessWitness students sweat in a clean, spacious studio framed by lime-green walls and sleek wooden floors.
During their years spent working as fitness trainers, Drew and Shazi Edmonds have trained clients from all walks of life?from busy moms to brawny athletes to reality-TV star Ruby Gettinger. They bring their passion for fitness and years of experience to Train Me 24/7, where they guide clients toward slimmer and stronger selves through one-on-one and small-group training sessions. Drew and Shazi also conduct boot-camp classes, leading students through high-intensity workouts of strength, cardio, and core-training exercises.
In ever-varied group CrossFit sessions, high-intensity interval exercises, or highly motivating personal training, the team of coaches at Rx Elite Fitness lead clients through invigorating workouts. Interval-training courses function like boot-camp classes, helping clients spring back into shape through a menu of challenging workouts that are scaled to their abilities—which allows the difficulty to be adjusted as they become more fit and less likely to call the barbell "that thing that looks like a Q-Tip."
As they enter the training circle 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.
In 2014, Curves partnered with celebrity fitness expert Jillian Michaels to design a new take on its traditional circuit. These workouts incorporate functional bodyweight exercises?each with modifications?into the existing sequence, providing a slightly more intense gym experience intended to jump-start metabolisms while still forging lean, toned muscles.
Each one of Anytime Fitness?s more than 2,700 coed fitness clubs grant 24-hour secured access to state-of the-art weight and cardio equipment and sessions of group fitness. The locations in Savannah and Pooler showcase exercise machines from manufacturers such as Precor, with treadmills and ellipticals sporting monitors for watching TV. The fitness emporium's staff of certified trainers lead group fitness classes or personal training sessions customized to the results of body-composition analyses. The staff are always friendly, making anytime an inviting place to train.
