CorePower Yoga founder Trevor Tice knows yoga is much more than a tool for increasing physical strength. "We've seen first hand emotional breakthroughs, physical improvements, and most of all, a new found confidence and balance our students carry from the studio into their daily lives," says Trevor. To further their holistic efforts, CorePower provides additional services and programs across various locations. Some outposts house spas where visitors can quiet their minds with a massage or facial, while others host Karma Yoga events wherein teachers lead free classes for cancer survivors, and students share home-cooked food with homeless youths.
But yoga resides at the heart of CorePower's mission to inspire as many people as possible, so each studio boasts a range of classes that accommodates all experience levels. Truly serious students can conjure pensive expressions as they enroll in a yoga-teacher-training program, and all patrons can take comfort in knowing their studio was built from recycled materials and equipped with energy-efficient fixtures.
Within The Fixx Workout Studio's lime-green walls and atop their bright wood floors, trainers act as guides on continuous journeys toward healthy lifestyles. They do it through classes such as boot camp, yoga, Pilates, and kettlebell. Through motivation and encouragement, the trainers foster a sense of community within the gym, as well as a sense of responsibility to one's self. To keep everyone engaged, classes and routines are constantly changing. One day they may have students strapping on boxing gloves to pummel heavy bags or keep them from scratching bug bites. The next could include stretches and pushups. Heaving dumbbells and throwing medicine balls might also be thrown into the mix. Classes also include upbeat hip-hop cardio sessions as well as expressive modern dance. Whatever the case, the passionate trainers make classes fun and light while keeping total body fitness the top priority.
