Foxy's Fitness Center encompasses a trio of workout facilities—including a women's-only club on Old Hammond Highway—where trainees sweat through group, semiprivate, and private sessions. With cardio and strength machines for self-guided reps, as well as DotFit nutrition guidance for all ages, the centers cater to guests of every fitness background. Exercise classes entail engaging actions, from cycling in studios to calisthenics to otter-cuddling contests in the indoor pools.
Wild Tiger's band of experienced yoga and fitness teachers leads a diverse collection of classes all week. The studio’s schedule of classes offers sessions suitable for most ability levels, including yin yoga, which utilizes longer-held stationary poses to target the body's connective tissues around the hips, the pelvis, and the lower spine, helping Elvis impersonators to increase range of gyration. The studio temperature dials up to a balmy 95–105 degrees during one-hour hot-yoga sweat sessions that help muscles to melt into deep, healing postures while ridding the body of harmful toxins. BodyTrim classes sculpt lean physiques with circuit-style training, focusing on a continuous rotation of exercises that build strong cores and improve cardiovascular and mental endurance, and dance-infused Zumba classes feature easy-to-follow steps set to energizing tunes to burn calories and tone lower bodies, providing a more effective and authentic Latin-flavored workout than reenacting scenes from Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights.
Nature's Wellness provides health-minded clients with holistic opportunities to cleanse, relax, and improve their overall well-being. While traditional steam-powered saunas warm the skin, High Tech Health's infrared sauna treatment penetrates the body to a depth of 1.5 to 2 inches, inciting the body's cellular detoxification process to a riot of cootie purging. Heavy metal toxins, chemical residues, and foodborne pesticides get the boot, resulting in a clearer mind and blissfully relaxed muscles. The hot-handed sessions are thought to improve cardiovascular health, ease chronic pain, help control weight, and boost immune resistance to colds, infection, and dangerous DNA poachers.
Between its well-provisioned weight rooms, fitness classes, and pool, the recently renovated Southern Oaks Athletic Club is a dependable resource for corporeal wellness. The free-weight wonderland hosts both novice and veteran body sculptors, and the resistance and treadmill room harbors toning and heartening equipment in the form of elliptical machines, leg presses, and heartstring tuggers. Fitness pass guests can also participate in one-hour classes such as yoga and Latin-infused Zumba. Aquatic exercisers jettison calories as they log laps or play intense games of water basketball. Lifeguards are always on duty during pool hours, and a baby pool provides the perfect conditions for tots to evolve into adult frogs.
The body-sculpting sessions and up-to-date facilities at Fitness Concepts of Baton Rouge reward women of all ages and ambitions with the means to stay active and run circles around their fitness goals. Muscle mavens nudge convivial trainees closer to their peak physiques with intense boot camp workouts available three days a week. Each camper's sweat regimen is prescribed based on individual fitness and the ability to lift and shake the change out of minivans. Trainees also receive a comprehensive fitness assessment and personalized nutrition plan to supplement the routines of boot camp and the bootless beyond.
Snap Fitness enables muscle farmers to exercise efficiently with top-of-the-line cardio and strength training equipment, providing exercisers with a refreshing change of pace from meat-market gyms and tough elementary schoolyards. Members can also take advantage of tanning beds to bronze biceps and the Cardio TV theater, which distracts stationary runners and cyclers with moving pictures. Though 24-hour access keys are not included in today's Groupon, members can purchase them for an extra $30 to arrive at Snap super late and pretend to workout in an Edward Hopper painting, or pound the treadmill at four in the morning and get pumped to host a morning shock-jock radio show.
