On Rochester Municipal Park’s wide expanse of grass, figures crab-walk, perform squat-jumps on picnic tables, carry sandbags, and bunny-hop. It may sound like the most playful available version of a zombie apocalypse, but it's actually part of Urban Outdoor Workouts and its ever-changing boot camp. The workouts—designed to be fun and unintimidating—cycle through 10 major fitness factors, including agility, strength, and stamina. Boot campers zero in on those goals by performing everything from towing tractor tires behind them by a rope tied around their waists to sprinting in terror from Bigfoot through wooded trails. Instructors customize each session to individuals with beginner, intermediate, and advanced fitness routines, allowing people to find exercises suited to their proclivities.
After earning his bachelor's degree at Cairo University in Egypt, Emad Elmarakby headed to Boston University's College of Health & Rehabilitation to attain his doctorate in physical therapy. After his graduation, the newly appointed Dr. Elmarakby opened Michigan Universal Physical Therapy, a private practice where he could apply his knowledge of anatomy and interest in functional biomechanics to help his patients recover from chronic ailments. Today, the center’s friendly staff continues to tend to sore joints and muscles with rehabilitative services that range from massages to postoperation orthopedics. Aside from these and other healing services, Dr. Elmarakby’s specialty treatment programs assist patients suffering from ailments such as aching joints, osteoporosis, and bodies that stubbornly refuse to travel except via crabwalk.
Dynamic Chiropractic Centers' chiropractic doctors aim to treat aches and pains while also focusing on preventative care. The team takes a "whole body approach," which means proactively treating imbalances that could one day develop into more serious issues. The doctors also complement treatments with postural screenings, which can discover spinal ailments such as a cracked vertebrae. Massage therapists address other non-chiropractic needs.
At Yoga Shelter, you won't hear esoteric chants echoing through the halls or meditation music reverberating from rock-shaped speakers. That's because founder Eric Paskel wants to make yoga accessible for all students, whether they're searching for inner peace or a more toned bod. Hip hop, dance, soul, chill, contemporary, and classic music accompanies all classes, ranging from Yoga Rocks, which focuses on sequenced postures, to Fusion, a blend of faster- and slower-moving classes. There is no hierarchy of classes; each 60- to 75-minute session is open to all skill levels. As Paskel himself puts it on his about page, ?What's different about us is that we admit we have issues, we know we have work to do?if you can relate to that, you'll love this place.?
Led by studio owner and yoga enthusiast Brian Granader, Red Lotus Yoga's certified instructors move with students of all experience levels through classes in 13 yoga styles. The bright, sunny studio's robust seven-day schedule presents ample opportunities to become acquainted with foundational yoga poses and breathing techniques in slower-paced basic- and gentle-yoga classes. Beginner sessions are set to a comfortable 75 degrees, and during vigorous hot Vinyasa classes, studio temperatures are set as high as the average opossum body temperature—or 95 degrees—as students execute a sequence of poses linked from one to the next with breathing exercises to hone focus and balance. Special events deepen students’ relationships to various aspects of yoga; preregister for an in-depth study of Tibetan Buddhism or sign up for a workshop in reiki or teaching yin yoga.
