Koru Fitness, which specializes in Les Mills's suite of classes, calls its approach to fitness "exertainment." They cultivate an energetic, nightclub?style atmosphere with disco, laser, and candle lighting, depending on the mood of the class. Instructors keep the mood light with friendly encouragement and the occasional bit of bawdy humor. And they even hold prize giveaways at the quarterly launch events, in which Les Mills unveils its new releases.
On any given day?whether the gym is being used for BodyCOMBAT's martial arts?inspired cardio, BodyATTACK's agility and body weight strength training, Sh'Bam's dance cardio, or BodyFLOW's calmer blend of yoga, tai chi, and Pilates?you're likely to find a diverse group of people at Koru. Every movement can be adapted to suit newcomers, and the instructors demonstrate all the difficulty levels. (To level up, you can also attend their occasional technique classes.) And a living-room area where kids ages 4 and older can watch movies, read, color, or play means that the studio is especially welcoming to parents.
The indoor range features 10 lanes with mechanical target-retrieval systems. HEPA air filtration helps keep the space cool and comfortable.
The selection of rental firearms includes options by popular manufacturers, such as Smith & Wesson, Glock, and Springfield.
With 18,400 square feet of space, the Total Defense facility is packed with services and amenities. Licensed instructors lead classes and oversee live-fire practice within the indoor range. In the 7,000-square-foot retail area, the staff stocks new, used, and consignment firearms from various name-brand manufacturers and fills the rest of the space with apparel and accessories. The facility even employs a gunsmith who can assist with basic maintenance and repairs.
CrossFit Ursa is owned by a military veteran who aims to foster a sense of community and support with clients. To that end, small group workouts are capped at 10 people, and a personal trainer provides one-on-one attention to help people achieve their individual fitness goals. Workouts combine high-intensity intervals with functional movements that you perform in everyday life, such as holding groceries or trying to pick up a quarter that is glued to the ground.
