Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
[With] fun and new styles. Barre is new to this area and because it is a ballet-based workout taught by dancers (to new pop music), the choreography of the class changes all the time. [Clients can] also try sassy burlesque classes or barre [classes] without the barre. Balance your hardcore classes with Dancers Stretch or yoga.
Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?
Unity is where it all comes together—fitness, diet, and mindfulness. We have a licensed massage therapist on hand who uses organic products only [and] two nutrition-health counselors, one of whom offers applied kinesiology. [We have] a noninvasive test to find body imbalances, such as a vitamin deficiency or even food allergies. We will offer our clients' kids classes to [teach them] coping skills via breathing exercises [and] games, and [to teach them] ways to regulate themselves, resulting in a more whole healthy family. [We also have] monthly seminars on health-related topics, such as essential oils, MELT, cancer prevention, and more.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Unity is owned by a professional dancer, who teaches the importance of proper placement for injury prevention. Most barre studios are franchised and not run by a dancer who has trained for many years. We will offer ballet placement classes to break down where your body should be before you add weights and bands and get hurt.
Elevate Dance and Fitness’s instructors teach their students the techniques and moves necessary to become better dancers. But they also stress the importance of lifelong self-confidence, independence, and determination. Passing on their expertise, which covers tap, hip-hop, lyrical, ballet, jazz, musical theater, and salsa dance, they help students grow into their dance shoes and transfer that confidence to everyday life. They also lead fitness classes, some of which—cardio tap, for one—integrate a dance twist; all of which help tone physiques and boost health.
Before they can lead classes at Bikram Yoga Rancho Cucamonga, the teachers have to undergo very specific, strict training from top Bikram teachers. The yoga style follows 26 poses and two breathing exercises during 90-minute classes in a room heated to 105 degrees. Each class takes place inside a 3,000-square-foot facility has studios outfitted with antibacterial and antimicrobial yoga flooring, a custom heating system, and a beverage cooler to keep stretchers hydrated.
From tossing medicine balls to jumping onto oversize tires, all's fair game during The Train Station's boot camps. Sessions cover a wide range of fitness areas including muscular endurance, weight loss, agility, balance, and flexibility. The camp's trainers ensure that participants of all fitness levels have fun and move toward their goals in a supportive group environment.
Inland Empire Boot Camp’s squad of experienced instructors eschews the ear-scarring screams of traditional boot camps in favor of rigorous motivation, individually tailoring every exercise to achieve sustainable results for students. Like the temperaments of salsa dancers, the boot camp’s intensity levels split into mild, medium, and hot categories to ensure every participant gets a vigorous but doable workout. The outdoor program mixes up activities for constantly shifting sessions, which divide time between exercises such as toning core muscles with planks and lunges and raising heart rates with jogging and calisthenics. Campers rotate through interval-based resistance and cardio training, aiming to stoke metabolic fires into searing calories. Inland Empire Boot Camp's schedule of both coed and women-only classes lets participants control their comfort levels, and the flexible schedule accommodates those who need extra time to get their werewolf or nongroggy daytime-werewolf symptoms under control. Inland Empire Boot Camp also offers grocery shopping classes, which escort students through the aisles, teaching them what to look for on food labels and how to decide between frozen or fresh, butter or margarine, and ketchup or catsup.
