Fitzone For Women boasts all the amenities of any modern gym, including row upon row of sleek workout equipment, 24 different kinds of fitness classes, and nutritional seminars. The gym’s staff tailors each service specifically to women’s needs. One-on-one instructors teach the tips and tricks needed to build long, lean muscle, while nutritionists suggest regimens designed to keep the female form healthy. Large screen televisions line the cardiovascular room, providing mental escape into another world while bodies work on burning calories.
Zip Fitness's staff strives to keep intimidation from creeping in to each of the five gyms. To welcome all exercisers—even those who have never had gym memberships before—Gym Geniuses stroll through each location donning bright-red shirts that signal their availability to help guests operate the various machines and guide them in drafting fitness goals and coming up with routines for the day. They've stocked each location with strength equipment from brands such as Precor and Life Fitness, and a guided strength circuit's 30-minute full-body workout takes the guesswork out of toning physiques. Rows of cardio equipment include treadmills, ellipticals, and upright and recumbent bikes, along with rowing machines and StairMaster step mills. For stretching and ab work, bands, balls, and body bars abound, and free weights include dumbbells, barbells, and tamed school bells.
Gold memberships unlock additional perks, such as unlimited access to Hex II tanning booths and the ActivTrax online fitness and nutrition coach, which plots out workouts and offers nutrition tools tailored to each user's goals, from slimming down to having the flexibility to comb your hair with your feet.
The licensed educators at Kindermusik help enrich family relationships and bolster kiddies' mental development through interactive, music-focused play dates. Children from newborns to 7-year-olds can investigate the world of sound waves through age-specific sessions of sing-alongs, musical compositions, and sound barrier-breaking drum solos. ACE Music & Me sessions foster reading and language skills through dance and rhyme, and Village classes stimulate cognitive growth through musical activities. Guardians are encouraged to pick up a tambourine and belt out a note alongside their musical wards. After each pressure-free play date, Kindermusik instructors outfit each parent with a number of after-class activities suited to their child's developmental level and ability to impersonate Dick Clark.
The gym owners at Snap Fitness understand that the motivation to train might strike at any time: early morning, late at night, or immediately after having just barely escaped a bear. That’s why they keep their gyms open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for a convenient and affordable experience close to home. These four Facilities outside of Chicago feature woodway treadmills, strength training equipment, ellipticals, stairmasters, free weights, and power racks. Certain gyms have individual showering rooms and rowing machines. No matter which gym clients choose, certified personal trainers will conduct a one-on-one fitness consultation to get clients familiar with the equipment and started on a workout plan.
