Center Gyrotonic's spin-savvy teachers whirl students through a sequence of workouts designed on creating circular and spherical movements with the body that loosen limbs and increase strength. Muscles, bones, and joints rotate and stretch during the supervised one-hour Gyrotonic sessions, which employ specially made equipment in order to increase the body's range of motion and tolerance for being shaken by giant children. Instructors tailor these private, machine-oriented sessions to each student's needs, whether to help with injuries or increase physical wellness. The pair of one-hour Gyrokinesis classes ditches the Gyrotonic equipment, perching students instead atop a stool and sending them through 100 stretches and bends designed to use the shape of the skeleton to give tissues a massage.
The Pole Palace?s intimate classes feature an average of six students climbing and spinning their way through pole-dancing workouts. The instructors?one a certified personal trainer and the other a chiropractor by day?help students safely master saucy movements that strengthen muscles and enhance flexibility during both coed and ladies-only workouts. They also teach guests sassy dance routines during private bachelorette, birthday, and traffic-school graduation parties, and owner Melissa uses the space for personal-training sessions, as well.

After honing his own brawn on Portland fields during college and arena football, certified personal trainer DeShawn Fontleroy began Proforce Athletics to craft training programs centered on helping patrons whip into shape for their activity of choice.
