Regardless of skill level, Lynette Allen, RN, and her staff at Transformation Pilates Studio welcome any students looking to improve their strength or flexibility with private or small-group workouts. Her practice space includes a ballet barre, Pilates props, and reformers by Peak Pilates, ensuring that students have the tools they need to forge slender, toned muscles. Using these tools, instructors lead dynamic sessions, which can incorporate mindful stretches alongside strength-building exercises and cardio work to create a full-body workout regimen. During select classes, they help keep spirits high by playing up-tempo music and energetic readings of sunny-weather forecasts.
At Next Level Fitness Vero Beach, the staff—which includes two instructors certified in the Ginastica Natural body-weight training method—strives to make exercise less intimidating. That's why they schedule one-on-one personal-training sessions that allow exercisers to work out alone instead of in front of a million bodybuilders. Complementing the private workouts are boot-camp, martial-arts, and self-defense classes.
Anchored alongside County Road 510 just 2 miles from the beach, Liquid Addiction Dive & Surf helps water enthusiasts get their under-sea fix. The family-owned shop stocks equipment from some of the industry's top manufacturers, including Oceanic and Cressi, and repairs visitors' existing gear. It also supplies visitors with scuba instruction and essential diving accessories, such as air for tanks.
Longevity Lady Fitness and Spa's instructors create a judgement-free zone where women of all ages and fitness levels can pursue a healthier lifestyle. Of course, they don't expect gym members to make such a journey on their own; they offer 60 group fitness classes each week to help. They cover everything from classic step aerobics and weight training to yoga, Zumba, and even senior fitness classes. After sweating it out in a class or hitting the 1,200-square-foot weight floor, they invite their visitors to relax in the Longevity Oasis, which includes a whirlpool tub, a sauna, and eucalyptus steam room with proper koala defenses installed.
