The Mayberry Athletic Center offers more than workouts. The gym also fosters a sense of community where members can feel welcome and even encouraged to challenge themselves while pursuing individual fitness goals. With 5,000 square feet of space as well as access to the nearby trails along the Truckee River, the Mayberry Athletic Center provides visitors with all of the equipment and amenities needed to transform their bodies. Treadmills and other cardio equipment allow members to watch the flat-screen televisions while they get their pulses racing. Strength-training machines and free weights help sculpt toned muscles. The space even features a swath of astroturf for anyone seeking agility training or experience tending a faux garden.
The Mayberry Athletic Center's coaches also offer professional guidance in many forms. Personal-training sessions provide visitors with the knowledge and support that they need to design an individually tailored workout regimen. Additionally, the center's group classes help build strength and endurance in a supportive, communal setting. These training programs can combine functional exercises with cardio to create full-body workouts for all fitness levels.
Workouts at Bootcamp Fitness & Nutrition Program move faster than ones at the gym. That's because there are no seats to adjust or new machines to learn?classes take place outdoors in the fresh air, and highlight functional fitness exercises that often require no equipment at all. Guided by experienced instructors, participants swiftly build muscle and melt fat, trimming and toning their bodies as they also boost flexibility and endurance. In addition to workouts, clients can also opt to receive a nutrition plan that includes tips to help them make better choices at the local grocery store or when raiding the office fridge.
Trainers and co-owners Terri Bakaric and Tom Celone have amassed more than two decades of combined experience getting both themselves and others into shape. At Core 4 Personal Training, they work one-on-one with visitors to help create a personalized program that is both challenging and realistic for clients, setting goals that can be met while working to shed fat and get buff. The two also oversee a team of instructors who lead the gym's group classes in spinning, yoga, and boot camp.
For exercisers, BodyFuel Fitness has everything they need, no matter when they need it. The 24-hour facility's floor is stocked with a full compliment of Cybex, Precor, FreeMotion, and Nautilus machines to torch calories and sculpt muscles. And, when clients need encouragement or motivation, they'll be able to easily find a group fitness class in which to enlist, including spin, Pilates, and boot-camp sessions.
Freedom Fitness Unlimited owner Jared Page and his team of professionally trained and certified instructors restore rusty bodies with their expertise in weight loss and management, sports performance, nutrition, and flexibility. Outdoor Freedom boot camps at the Sparks Marina bypass the confines of the gym's four walls and disorienting entrance labyrinth so that sweat donors can soak up the vitamin-D-fortified rays of sun, build muscle in sight of mirrorlike water, and boost cardiovascular endurance with aerobic butterfly catching. A surprise array of fun games and obstacle courses keep mental triggers firing and lungs a-billow with fresh air.
CrossFit Captivate’s head coach and owner, Corey Bibolet, serves as a living example of how CrossFit’s commitment to functional movement can contribute to bettering bodies for all types of activities—not just squats and lunges. He began practicing CrossFit in 2008 as a means to build strength and spice up his break-dancing routines and has been dedicated to the fitness medium ever since. A coach for more than three years, Corey holds several CrossFit competition titles, and he travels the country to attend training seminars and find new ways to get his pupils motivated. Today, he and his staff of co-trainers teach more than 30 classes per week in their blue-walled gym equipped with weights, hanging rings, and kettlebells.
