Waves tumbling across sand is one of the most relaxing sounds. It is appropriate, then, given the name of her studio, that instructor Sue Wattenbarger has a soothing voice that doesn’t disturb the sense of calm in a room full of yogis. She calls on that calm demeanor, along with more than 200 hours of training, to guide students through restorative yoga classes. Sue specializes in lymphatic classes that help circulate fluids in the body and strengthen the immune system. The staff there is also experience with guided relaxation massage and yin yoga, which uses longer poses to increase mobility in the joints or make hiding in the National Mannequin Museum all day easier.
At Fitness WorX Training Studio, clients can squeeze an effective group training workout into as little as 30 minutes. By pushing themselves through intervals of cardio and strength training with TRX suspension equipment, jump ropes, medicine balls, and free weights, participants prime their bodies to burn up to 650 calories per workout as well as 250-300 calories even after the session ends with the after-burn effect.
Master Gym’s training facility houses circuit weight stations, elliptical machines, and other high-quality cardio equipment. Members can work up a sweat following their own routine, or they can join in on one of the regularly scheduled classes. Zumba classes burn calories with fun dance routines set to Latin-inspired music, and cardio-kickboxing sessions help tone muscles using a series of jabs, hooks, and other boxing moves. Master Gym also offers boot-camp sessions, which mix a variety of exercises to build strength and endurance.
The women inside the FEMforce boxing ring might throw hundreds of punches, but they aren't fighting each other. They're too busy sweating through kickboxing routines side by side, which is the same way they perform push-ups, box jumps, and kettlebell lifts. Their collective determination fuels the female-only boot-camp session, even though they might all be pursuing different goals. Some hope to lose weight, whereas others want to tone their arms, or develop flat, hard abs without having to ingest a hardcover dictionary.
The path to these achievements begins with a private physical assessment. During this time, one of coach Lucas's fitness consultants meets with each camper to determine what particular challenges she'll face and what results she desires. Students then tackle the fitness regimen at their own pace, modifying it as they go if need be.
At TITLE Boxing Club, heavy 100-pound bags punctuate the open gym space. Led by a professional boxer, kickboxer, or MMA trainer, the classes lead students through full-body fitness using boxing or kickboxing techniques. In addition the small-group classes, the trainers conduct personal-training sessions.
Dr. Charles Goldsmith was a successful OB/GYN. His practice was thriving, but his patients weren't. Each of them was worried about weight loss and attempting their own home-brewed ideas of how to drop those last few pounds. Rather than see his patients rely on misinformation, Dr. Goldsmith, soon to become widely known as Dr. G, concocted his four-pronged approach to weight loss.
Targeting appetite, metabolism, diet, and habits, Dr. G's physician-supervised plan works to not only change people's consumption, but change their lifestyles. From five-day cleanses that evict toxins from the body to dietary supplements, Dr. G keeps his clients' systems humming like tuneful supersonic jets. His additional cosmetic services, such as teeth whitening and Revitalash, help to ensure clients' exteriors are as pampered as their interiors.
