My Gym’s nurturing fitness experts coach classes that help make fitness enjoyable and promote positive self-image for kids ranging from 6-week-old dumplings to 13-year-old sprouts. The Little Bundles course begins the adventures for the youngest age set, featuring introductory stimulation, baby-safe rides, and parental discussion on appropriate development and whose infant can do the best burrito impression. Parental involvement continues during the series of three age-appropriate classes for tykes up to 3.25 years, which involve interactive songs, choreographed dance, and puppet shows at the spacious facility. Older children attend sessions independently, sliding on scooters, tumbling on mats, and learning to swing on the parallel bars while eating bananas handed out by the monkeys that emerge from the wall mural when no adults are looking. Lifetime membership lasts until age 13, and unlimited free play lets youngsters burn off energy during unstructured frolicking.
At GoYoga, certified instructors welcome students of all skill levels by demonstrating modifications that make poses easier for beginners or trickier for veterans. During Flow Fundamentals classes, they gently adjust alignment as students build strength and release stress with basic poses. Deep breaths power full-fledged Flow routines, which revolve around graceful Vinyasa sequences that more closely resemble dance steps. In addition to hosting beat-driven Groove sessions, the studio holds many types of classes inside an 85-degree room, which ousts toxins and allows muscles to feel as limber as a freshly massaged puddle.
No matter what time it is, someone somewhere is working out at Anytime Fitness. More than 1,800 franchised clubs across the country fling open their doors 24 hours a day, revealing gaggles of equipment designed to make working out less of a chore. Rows of Lifestyle Fitness treadmills and Precor ellipticals mounted with cardio TV let guests work out and catch up on their favorite shows, and Expresso game cycles blend the excitement of playing video games with the exercise of riding your bike to a friend's house to play video games. In addition to copious supplies of free weights, the gym also stocks a Koko all-in-one training machine. The futuristic robot-butler-esque equipment stores individual workout plans and progress on a chip so exercisers can track their performance over time on the built-in monitor.
The Rite Bite’s staff of licensed dieticians, nurses, personal trainers, and massage therapists aim to help their clients achieve a healthy life balance. This can mean providing nutritional advice, leading cardio kickboxing classes, or speaking to businesses as part of their corporate wellness program. No matter what the service, the goal is always boost their clients’ overall sense of well-being.
The coaching staff at D1 Sports Training refuses to discriminate between professional athletes and everyday exercisers. They scale the strength and cardio workouts of their group boot-camp classes and one-on-one intensive courses to individual abilities, bringing out the best in each student regardless of their workout history. The typical D1 gym houses modern indoor turf fields with adjoining weight rooms, giving instructors the space to invent expansive obstacle courses that may require students to lift tires or tug 747s. In both the boot-camp and Total Fit programs, coaches meet with students one-on-one to discuss athletic progress and find ways to improve further. Each facility also houses a sports therapy clinic, where expert therapists ease muscle injuries through rehabilitation programs and strength-restoring exercises. Many professional athletes implicitly endorse D1’s program by staking their claim in some of the company’s indoor exercise complexes; Peyton Manning, MLB athlete Chipper Jones, and quarterback Philip Rivers count themselves among facility co-owners.
