9Round fitness centers eschew complicated machines or trendy aerobics for old-fashioned boxing and kickboxing circuits, which gym-goers complete in 30 minutes. With a focus on building strength, stamina, and core power, each circuit incorporates dumbbells, kettle bells, medicine balls, heavy bags, and jump ropes and is overseen by a trainer to keep clients motivated. The gym is open six days per week, and new rounds start every three minutes to accommodate a variety of schedules.
Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use your own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottle to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing 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.
