Next Step Fitness' two-trainer team understands that staying healthy does more than just help you look good. Wendy Soto, Next Step founder and lifelong athlete, knows that keeping strong through nutrition and exercise keeps her in shape for her favorite activities. CrossFit Level 1 trainer and police officer Veronica Sandoval works to build her strength, flexibility, and endurance to ensure she can tackle any situation her job throws her way. With that in mind, the duo lead exercise programs that help members slim down and stay active. Members are given 24-hour access to the gym, allowing them to drop in whenever, rather than interrupting the block of time they usually spend winding all the clocks in their houses.
During your month-long trial membership at Anytime Fitness ($100), you can re-bloom your wilted health with the state-of-the-art facility's diverse range of cardio and strength equipment. Exploit muscles for non-financial gain with free weights, tone legs on the treadmills, undergo a demanding tour de fitness-center via exercise bikes, or just catch up on reruns of Homeboys from Outer Space on the flat-screen TVs located near the treadmills, ellipticals, and Lifecycle machines. If the flawed workout plan you concocted yourself results only in frighteningly muscular ring fingers, one of Anytime's motivating trainers can prescribe a regimen designed to help you meet your fitness goals during your three personal-training sessions included in your trial membership ($150). Complete the sculpting of your flesh-statue with an Apollo finish with one month of unlimited tanning ($40), and then purify yourself of sweat and fried-cheese memories in Anytime's private showers.
At Pinnacle Performance Institute, trainers have created a fitness and performance program for athlete of almost any age. Training begins with the Youth Speed & Strength program, which helps students as young as 7 develop foundational athletic movement for long-term development. High school and college athletes foster sport-specific skills in the P.A.S.S., working towards personal goals while developing universal skills and strength for continued fitness success. The institute's AthleteFIT adult group fitness program helps exercisers maintain wellness long after graduation. Built from workouts modified for safety and effectiveness, the program helps adults of all ages and fitness levels burn fat and tone muscles without resorting to another whirl on the stationary bike.
BakersFIT?s trainers have been whipping bodies into shape for nearly a decade. They work with clients one-on-one or guide groups through workouts during indoor boot-camp classes. The regimen is simple, but effective. Each workout begins with a 10-minute warm-up that includes stretching and calisthenics before moving into 30 minutes of full-body circuit training. And because the trainers recognize how much of a role diet plays with your health, they offer online nutritional counseling with seminars and meal plans high in protein and cinnamon. Even kids can break a sweat during special youth boot-camp sessions that focus on conditioning, agility, speed, and strength. On weekdays, VIP members can work out while their kids play at the on-site daycare.
