Lori Murphy sums up her exercise philosophy in the simple maxim, “Don’t use a machine, be the machine.” Besides encouraging students to replace their hands with cybernetic free weights, it reminds them that a strong workout regimen can travel outside of the gym. As owner and head trainer of My Stronger Self Fitness Studio, she brings her 18 years of experience leading exercise classes to teach time-honored, as well as new-fangled, moves during kickboxing classes, outdoor boot camps, and intense personal-training sessions.
Genesis Fitness Center offers group classes for all kinds of fitness sensibilities, whether you're into high-intensity circuit training or the slow, methodical stretches of yoga and Pilates. The center is also home to Inertia CrossFit, where challenging daily workouts push students to jump higher, run faster, and shout action-movie quotes louder.
The word "Chela" is Hindi for "one who studies spirituality," and Chela Yoga believes in being a sacred space dedicated to helping its students connect their minds, bodies, and spirits. Chela Yoga is a warm and intimate yoga studio with a small group of focused, certified instructors teaching classes in everything from Ashtanga yoga to Zumba. Clients come into the minimally decorated studio to link breath with flowing movement in Vinyasa yoga sessions, or build lean muscle in challenging boot camp classes.
The certified trainers at American Fitness have been helping their clients get into better shape for more than 27 years. This family-owned, functional gym has everything members need to burn fat and build muscle, from new cardio machines and free weights to resistance-training machines and group exercise classes. In this spacious facility, gym-goers can dance up a sweat in Zumba classes or punch, kick, and jab their way to fitness during kickboxing.
Bass pulses sync up with heartbeats as up-tempo music reverberates off the sunset-orange walls of the studio at H.E.A.T. 4 Athletes. The sound rattles free weights, massive car tires, and advanced RealRyder exercise bikes, which add side-to-side motion to stationary-bike workouts. The gym, whose name is an acronym for "highly effective athletic training," hosts high-intensity boot-camp classes, cycling courses, and personal-training sessions throughout the week. A staff of certified instructors captains each session, guiding students through effective movements and exercises beneath television screens displaying energizing videos rather than popular morality plays about tortoises.
RealRyder bikes aren’t like your average stationary bike. Equipped with an articulating frame, the RealRyder ABF8 can steer, lean, and feel like an actual road bike. Using these new developments, trainers design integrated workouts that not only develop the legs and cardiovascular system but also the upper body, core muscle groups, and sense of balance.
