Express Fitness 24/7 helps lads and ladies of all fitness levels reach new heights of health with a smorgasbord of machines and free weights that members can access 24 hours a day. Clients can engage every muscle group on Cybex weight and cardio equipment or enlist the help of a personal trainer, who can devise a custom-tailored fitness and nutrition program for each individual. In addition to exercise, Express invites guests to get their exteriors glowing with onsite tanning equipment or replenish their stores of protein and vitamins at the smoothie bar.
With more than 60 group fitness classes every week, a fleet of high-tech cardio and weight machines, and a litany of gym amenities and perks, MetroFitness takes the drudgery out of lifting weights and getting fit, infusing workouts with fun and teamwork. Members track their progress and blow past personal goals with Fitlinxx monitoring devices, or sweat alongside fellow athletes in Pilates, stretch yoga, and Zumba dance courses. Seasoned personal trainers help clients maximize their workout efficiency during calorie-crunching exercise sessions, or introduce members to new workout techniques, such as high-intensity Power 45/15 or calming qigong.
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. Thirty seconds are 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.
The recently renovated W.A. Gayle Planetarium harnesses the sublime splendor of the night sky within its hemispheric white dome. Two hundred theater-style seats carry astrophiles through interstellar space minus the bothersome side effects of an oxygen-free vacuum. The planetarium’s latticed-framework star projector, in use since 1968, bedazzles armchair astronomers and celestial connoisseurs alike with one-hour seasonal star shows on astral phenomena. Gain extra-powerful cosmic vision with Through the Eyes of Hubble while spying on stellar births and deaths, grandiose galactic collisions, and chaotic storms on Saturn. A Trip Into Space explores black holes and planetary conditions, and Bear Tales and Other Grizzly Stories offers spirited yarns about springtime constellations while incorporating ancient Greek mythology, pirate legends, and interviews with sentient starfish long disgruntled by human appropriation of their heavenly twins.
