The team at Kids Fitness World works to make exercise a fun activity rather than a chore, offering invigorating programs that help children to appreciate the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle. Colorful gymnastics equipment can be found throughout the gym, along with hydraulic circuit equipment to increase lean muscle and an interactive video arcade that turns aerobic workouts into exciting games.
Kids Fitness World also hosts a rock-climbing wall that challenges climbers' muscle control while improving their balance and helping them prep for the rock-climbing portion of college entrance exams. Parents may also inquire about adult classes in kickboxing, Zumba, Bodysculpt, capoeira, and yoga.

Nearly every kind of person has found success at 2XR Boot Camp Cross Fitness—from college students looking for some structure as they strike out on their own to adults who've lost upward of 100 pounds. During these indoor boot-camp sessions, clients avoid the boredom that often causes people to abandon exercise programs, because each session incorporates an ever-changing routine of cardio and resistance training. People of all fitness levels benefit from the boot-camp program, since the exercises are easily tailored to both beginners and more advanced athletes. During a boot-camp session, participants maximize fat-burning results with quick spurts of sprinting intermixed with walking and jogging on the treadmill—known as high-intensity interval training—along with suspension work designed to engage the core, and a variety of weight-training exercises. Campers might try out everything from whipping heavy battle ropes up and down to getting on the floor for pushups, burpees, and rounds of playing dead.
Garfield YMCA has promoted healthy lifestyles, youth development, and social responsibility for more than eight decades. While the organization has built new facilities, this core mission remains the same. Instructors teach fitness and swim classes for both kids and adults, and they coach competitive swimming teams at two locations in Garfield. The staff also keeps kids active and safe during before- and after-school care programs.
Even when she was swamped with a private psychotherapy practice and raising three kids, Bernadette Silva always found time for exercise. For the past 10 years, the certified personal trainer has studied boxing, yoga, and Pilates, ultimately developing her own workout style that fuses the aforementioned techniques with sports drills. In 2008, Silva and a group of local women spearheaded Neighborhood Workouts—the fitness program that would become Real Body Bootcamp.
Today, Silva and her team of certified personal trainers captain a gaggle of fitness classes throughout the week. Their signature boot camp fuses sports drills with high-intensity routines of cardio, strength training, yoga, and Pilates to offload calories, bolster cores, and build more endurance. The class list also includes Zumba and Piloxing fitness classes as well as kids' fitness classes, during which youngsters build self-confidence and the strength to finally confront the lunch ladies who take their money every day.
Having studied ballet, tap dance, and Greek folk dance in her youth, Maria Kyriakakis has cultivated a lifelong fervor for world music, movement, and fitness. Her husband Pedro Goncalves—a dancer trained at London Contemporary Dance School—studied Eagle Claw kung fu, becoming one of only six people in the world to receive certification from Grandmaster Leung Shum. Today, the espoused duo leads dance and martial-arts training sessions in a studio that looks for all the world like the setting for Neo and Morpheus' first fight in The Matrix. Inside, under a vaulted ceiling, a team of instructors—including Zumba instructors Ariella and Cookie—holds dance-fitness classes, tribal-fusion belly-dance classes, and Northern Shaolin–style Eagle Claw kung fu classes.
