The certified instructors at RPM Dance Studio turn up Latin-infused dance beats to inspire movement during Zumba, Zumbatomic for Kids, and samba classes. Repeat customers and referrals flock to the dance emporium for Zumba’s one-hour lessons in repetitive, easy-to-follow steps that burn calories faster than trying to lift weights with the eyebrows. Young ones work off extra energy and learn healthy habits in Zumbatomic for Kids, and samba lessons teach the art of the Brazilian dance form. Once a month, the studio doubles as a boutique that sells fitness clothing, and occasional Zumba-themed special events let revelers practice in a loose, celebratory setting.
At each of Crossroads Fitness' four locations throughout the Wastach Front, members of all ages build strong, healthy bodies through a regimen of group classes, personal training, and extensive wellness evaluations and health assessments. Registered dietitians and fitness experts help clients manage their fitness goals, while a schedule of BodyPump, Zumba, yoga, and resistance training burn away unwanted fat while building lean muscle. After leveling up their endurance and speed with sports-performance training or flexing their legs in a cycling class, members relax and rehabilitate muscles with on-site massage therapy.
Even if you switch between running forwards and backwards, treadmill workouts can get monotonous. Luckily, that isn't the case with CrossFit West Jordan?s workouts, which, in keeping with the CrossFit tradition, change daily. During one session, someone might swing a sledgehammer through the air; during another, they might flip a tire end over end, then take a rewarding nap inside of it. The end goal remains the same, though?to build rippling muscle and amp up cardio strength.
CrossFit Sandy introduces exercisers to its blend of athletic, military, and other strength-and-conditioning disciplines with a tiered system of classes. CrossFit espouses a highly scalable set of skills to accommodate all fitness levels irrespective of prior experience or dumbbell certifications. Passionate trainers begin by guiding new pupils through Foundations sessions scheduled Monday–Friday mornings, which acclimate fresh bodies to the movements integral to CrossFit, as well as offering initial nutritional guidance. After three of the 45-minute intro sessions, exercisers will have pushed through progressively intense workouts and receive a degree to pursue graduate-level vitality in the general CrossFit classes.
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 500 calories with each go-round.
Navy Special Operators are recognized as some of the world's most feared warriors. Run using the same aquatic training program that tests the mettle of real-life divers and explosives techs, Hellbender's Amphibious Bootcamp sends exercisers plunging in and out of the water as they blast through a blend of calisthenics and aquatic exercises. A diverse collection of former sailors, soldiers, and firefighters lead the classes, shouting encouragement as as students switch from pushups and pull-ups to freestyle, breaststroke, and sprint swims. Movable obstacles including sandbags, weights, and decommissioned bathyspheres also wait beneath the depths, challenging endurance as they bulk up screaming muscles. Classes welcome all fitness levels, but exercisers should be able to tread water, swim at least 25 yards without stopping, and arrive with their own goggles and swimsuit.
