In early 2012, three heavyweight names in the professional fighting worlds––The Factory, Team Nogueira Tulsa, and Ghost Dog Boxing––merged into a single muscle-building conglomerate, which USCombatSports.com heralded as a "match made in heaven [that] puts the best of three gyms into one." Now operating under The Factory moniker, the supergroup of combat trainers and health gurus staked its claim in an 8,000-square-foot facility, where members receive 24-hour access to weight-lifting equipment, Olympic lift platforms, and locker rooms with shower facilities.
The Factory's absorption of fellow fighting gyms has allowed founder and UFC fighter Josh Bryant to incorporate new techniques to his training programs, blending his MMA background of takedowns and strikes with the jujitsu tactics of Team Nogueira Tulsa and the sparring combinations of Ghost Dog Boxing. Together this triumvirate teaches students the skills needed to build lean muscle mass for battles inside the ring or scuffles inside toy stores during the Christmas season.
A joint venture between a professional boxer and a team of successful kickboxing-equipment tycoons, Title Boxing Club Tulsa maintains a network of dozens of studios spread across 19 different states, winning over a devoted clientele with its invigorating and engaging boxing- and kickboxing-themed classes. Each workout uses the heart-healthy exercise of cardio training to satisfy people?s innate desire to punch and kick something other than a broken jukebox. Participants build lithe, strong muscle tissue by delivering powerful blows to punching bags, and build flexibility and agility by practicing roundhouse kicks and hooks. Students can build their core strength and endurance with medicine balls and burpees, enlist a qualified personal trainer to practice their newfound skills in the ring, or just torch calories during intense full-body Power Hour workouts.
For about 30 years, The Weight Room has helped the residents of Oklahoma City lose weight and get in shape with its arsenal of free weights, aerobic equipment, and encouraging trainers. The gym also hosts group training, Boot Camps, and CrossFit Ailith.
Oklahoma Fit's experienced personal trainers lead students through rigorous classes focused on burning calories, melting fat, and building community. Operating out of multiple locations, 90-minute boot-camp sessions host up to 25 fit-seekers indoors or 40 during outdoor sessions. Maintaining a sense of variety during both classes and personal training sessions, trainers employ a variety of strength-building equipment, such as car tires, punching bags, water jugs, free weights, and medicine balls, to help students achieve the body-changing results they desire. Outdoor workouts take place adjacent to the gym when weather permits for a workout fueled by fresh air, the rising or setting sun's warmth, and grass's supportive follicles. The instructors treat their students like family, giving each member attention and motivating students with boundless energy and inspirational messages hanging on the gym’s walls.
Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing with the Stars' multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 600 calories with each go-round.
