Certified and experienced trainers help clients attain their fitness goals through individualized programs based on innovative fitness techniques optimized for efficiency, safety, and effectiveness. The staff dispenses cardio and strength moves during one-on-one and semiprivate training sessions and group boot-camp classes. The training studio boasts stationary bikes, free weights, medicine balls, and enough floor space for sprints and distance somersaulting. Personal training and bootcamp focus on overall fitness by combining functional movements, circuit training, body weight exercises, and conditioning drills.
The staff at Omni Health and Fitness Center works to make the gym a one-stop shop for its members' fitness needs. The club's impressive inventory aids in this pursuit, with more than 75 cardio machines, tens of thousands of pounds of free weights, and strength-training equipment from Life Fitness. Parents can drop their youngsters off at the kids' zone or children's nursery before pumping iron or grabbing a spot in the cardio cinema room, which, like Jack LaLanne’s living room, allows people to work out while enjoying a movie in surround sound. The gym's trainers, meanwhile, lead one-on-one workouts as well as group fitness classes such as Pilates and Body Pump. After exercising, members can refuel at the juice bar.
Body in Balance Studio’s neutral tones engender peace and clarity, and it is in that atmosphere that owner Pamela Smith and a staff of licensed therapists work to extricate stress from muscles. After consulting with clients, therapists personalize massage sessions with techniques such as Swedish, deep tissue, and hot stone. They can add aromatherapy to promote relaxation the way the smell of hot coffee makes it easier to wake up and the scent of gasoline makes it easier to know something's wrong with the wedding. The team also renders spa treatments—such as facials and waxing—to groom exteriors, and they host occasional yoga classes in a sage-green room.
Club Fitness’s 50,000-square-foot facility fills with the low rumble of more than 75 cardio machines and the clanging of tens of thousands of pounds of free weights and strength-training equipment from Hammer Strength and Life Fitness. Youngsters scamper through the KidZone or children's nursery while their parents pump iron or grab a spot in the cardio-cinema room, an area that allows people to work out while enjoying a movie in surround sound. The gym’s trainers lead one-on-one sessions as well as group fitness classes. The soft squeak of feet against floors drifts from yoga sessions, and popular Les Mills classes include BodyPump, which combines high-energy music and repetitive moves like somebody repeatedly pushing the wrong way on a dance-club door. The purr of blenders drifts from the smoothie bar, where patrons refuel and chat after workouts.
In the 15 years since its founding, Fitness For Her has amassed a well-rounded collection of gym equipment and group classes in an encouraging studio where women jump into routines specifically designed for them. Ladies can work up calorie-burning sweats on cardio equipment, such as treadmills and bikes, as they take in favorite shows beamed in over the TVs or watch for cameo appearances by their favorite numbers on the heart-rate monitors. A weight-training area eases limbs into reps with Cybex machines, free weights, an abdominizer, and a multistation jungle gym to ensure no muscle group starts to feel left out. For a communal foray into fitness, personal trainers spur on groups to shake off calories in Zumba and Cardio Pilates classes, kindling a full-body burn in the aerobics studio. Postexercise, up to 10 weary frames can sweat out excess toxins or barbells lodged in pores in the dry-heat sauna. With senior classes, membership discounts for mother-daughter pairs, and free childcare services, the gym welcomes women at every stage of their sojourns into healthy living.
