At Snap Fitness’ 24-hour gym, guests come and go armed with their access keys and are able to work out at their convenience. Around the gym, rows of cardio machines and stacks of free weights stand by as personal trainers show guests the most efficient ways to pump iron and bench-press their old refrigerators.
The experienced personal trainers at XLR8 are half drill sergeant, half high-school football coach, and half mathematician, but all expert. They want you to go tactical on flab, but not without realistic encouragement and support. In this boot camp, the enemy is predictability. Each day, your instructors will throw down a fresh guerrilla-ambush worth of challenges for your muscles and your brain, fueling constant gains and keeping you engaged. Over the course of the one-hour sessions, you'll run, jump, lift weights, slam through obstacle courses, chase chickens, punch slabs of beef, and end with a live-crocodile wrestle. Early morning and evening classes are offered outdoors at West End Park and the adjacent Coconut Beach, and additional morning classes are conducted at the Hopkins School of Dance in Kenner. Check the schedule to find a class that works for you.
Exercisers can make ample use of Next Level Sports Performance & Fitness Center's 8,600 square feet of workout space seven days a week. The gym has dedicated areas for boxing, free weights, and crab walking. Personal trainers work one-on-one with clients to help them reach fitness goals, such as dropping pounds or building endurance.
Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing with the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 500 calories with each go-round.
