Inside Body Synergy’s lofted, sun-lit space, a collection of wood-paneled Pilates machines stand over a carpeted area—each with a unique purpose in strengthening students’ core. Instructors provide small groups with individualized instruction here, or lead larger classes that focus on mat and release work. Elsewhere in the wellness studio, slate-colored rooms create a tranquil environment for undergoing customized, organic facials.
At Curves, exercisers of all fitness levels move around a circuit of hydraulic-resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine-maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks, filling medicine balls with medicine, and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines account for different body weights and fitness levels to create resistance that matches one's abilities, which thereby decreases the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
Curves is a facility for women featuring a 30 minute work out with the latest technology Curves Smart that gives you moment to moment feed back on your work out. You will experience the thrill of working out at your pace and as your strength level increases Curves Smart will increase your levels to keep you motivated !!!!!
Shannon "The Cannon" Hudson is an International Kickboxing Federation world champion, a fifth-degree black belt in Japanese shotokan karate, and a survivor of more than 70 bouts in the ring?yet, one of his most influential titles is "father." With two kids clinging around his waist like a squirmy fanny pack, Shannon started brainstorming a way to channel his boxing and kickboxing training into a quick, effective workout that even those who are busy or out of shape could tackle. The result was 9Round, a 30-minute routine of aerobic, anaerobic, and resistance moves divided into a circuit of nine stations. The ever-changing series of workouts maximizes morale and results while minimizing boredom.
His trainers launch the workouts every three minutes, motivating exercisers through each station?which might include jumping rope or pummeling speed bags. Online nutritional counseling supplements the workouts, teaching patrons how to construct and eat healthy meals instead of falling back on old habits, such as snacking on cheese sculptures.
The staff at Omni Health and Fitness Center works to make the gym a one-stop shop for its members' fitness needs. The club's impressive inventory aids in this pursuit, with more than 75 cardio machines, tens of thousands of pounds of free weights, and strength-training equipment from Life Fitness. Parents can drop their youngsters off at the kids' zone or children's nursery before pumping iron or grabbing a spot in the cardio cinema room, which, like Jack LaLanne’s living room, allows people to work out while enjoying a movie in surround sound. The gym's trainers, meanwhile, lead one-on-one workouts as well as group fitness classes such as Pilates and Body Pump. After exercising, members can refuel at the juice bar.
At NC Yoga, students step outside of their stressful daily routines to find peace and harmony through stretches and careful breathing techniques. The studio presents one-hour classes for children, teens, moms-to-be, and seniors of all levels of fitness, whether they've never touched a yoga mat or spent the last 30 years in a headstand. During Vinyasa sessions, certified teachers show groups how to weave deep breaths and traditional poses together in a flowing, dance-like sequence. In contrast, Iyengar classes focus on lengthy poses that foster strength, balance, and proper alignment. Or you can sweat it out in Power Fusion sessions, which takes place in an 80-degree room to loosen muscles and unfreeze joints covered in ice. Beginners can pose at their own pace in Yoga 101 classes or enroll in private sessions, in which an instructor gives more personalized tips. In addition to leading yoga and dance classes, the studio operates a boutique that sells T-shirts, sticky mats, and instructional DVDs.
