At Steele Fitness, the steady hum of workout machines can hardly be heard under the shouts of instructors leading individuals and small groups of students through custom workouts. Adjacent to a fitness-fashion boutique with high-end apparel from Hard Tail, Bliss, and Lululemon Athletica, the 10,000-square-foot studio comes alive with energy during workouts that draw on a seemingly endless supply of strength-training and cardio equipment. Functional tools such as kettlebells share the workout floor with machines such as the Technogym, whose rotating pulley system facilitates more than 200 sculpting moves. Muscles also test their might and endurance against stair steppers, spinner bikes, and Life Fitness treadmills that bolster aerobic endurance and maximize calorie burn. When they aren’t designing fitness regimens or demonstrating exercises, trainers lead grocery-store tours to help clients craft healthy meals and distinguish eggs packed with protein from empty-calorie bocce balls
At over 100 locations throughout the country, CorePower Yoga (CPY) invites students to creative classes that meld movement, breath, heat, and music into entrancing routines to energize the body and mind. Signature CPY classes are taught by approachable certified yoga instructors who lead students through dynamic, Vinyasa-style flows with demonstration and verbal cues, helping pupils of all experience levels tone core muscles and cultivate balance. CPY also offers teacher training and lifestyle programs to empower students to become yoga instructors or to just advance their individual practice. During construction of all its new studios, CPY strives to use recycled content, install eco-friendly and efficient mechanical systems, and ensure that any waste created doesn't end up in landfills or just piled in Mr. Henderson's garage.
According to owner Zack Rourk, Endgame Fitness follows "an evidence-based approach to sport performance training." Some trainers, he says, stick with the same workouts and techniques for years simply because that's how they've always worked. But here? "Here, we question everything." Zack is currently adding a PhD in exercise physiology to his sizable collection of degrees, and this academic, scientifically minded philosophy informs every aspect of his training programs.
Because, as Zack puts it, "We're super-sciency nerds that train smarter than our competition," no clients ever start training until they've had a thorough consultation and half-hour diagnostic workout. Next, trainer Daryl Jelle or another coach meticulously customizes the program to the individual's goals and sport.
Endgame's facilities are chic and industrial-looking, with stacked wooden crates flanking pizza-sized weight discs and stationary-bike-sized stationary bikes. A collection of trophies lines one wall, glinting with light as Daryl puts athletes on medal-winning paths of their own.
Desert Moon Dance Studio is designed to be a dancing haven where people can explore their art in an inviting and welcoming environment. The primary focus of the Studio is belly dance, but we do offer yoga and Journeydance as well. I encourage you to read about our fabulous Instructors and what they have to offer you.
Anytime Fitness, which boasts 1,689 clubs in North America, makes it easier for average folks to etch out time for exercise by doing one simple thing: staying open 24 hours a day for 365 days a year. As fitness seekers challenge themselves on cardio and Hammer Strength machines and hoist Iron Grip free weights in clean, well-stocked facilities, security monitoring ensures they’re safe and producing enough sweat to meet official government standards. Members can also ramp up their exercise regimens with the help of Anytime Fitness’s staff of personal trainers, who demonstrate moves and sling motivating tips. After workouts, guests can shower in the private restrooms or hop into one of the tanning booths available 24 hours a day.
