Nature's Wellness provides health-minded clients with holistic opportunities to cleanse, relax, and improve their overall well-being. While traditional steam-powered saunas warm the skin, High Tech Health's infrared sauna treatment penetrates the body to a depth of 1.5 to 2 inches, inciting the body's cellular detoxification process to a riot of cootie purging. Heavy metal toxins, chemical residues, and foodborne pesticides get the boot, resulting in a clearer mind and blissfully relaxed muscles. The hot-handed sessions are thought to improve cardiovascular health, ease chronic pain, help control weight, and boost immune resistance to colds, infection, and dangerous DNA poachers.
Foxy's Fitness Center encompasses a trio of workout facilities?including a women's-only club on Old Hammond Highway?where trainees sweat through group, semiprivate, and private sessions. With cardio and strength machines for self-guided reps, as well as DotFit nutrition guidance for all ages, the centers cater to guests of every fitness background. Exercise classes entail engaging actions, from cycling in studios to calisthenics to otter-cuddling contests in the indoor pools.
More akin to a small, self-contained town than a fitness center, each of Spectrum Fitness?s seven locations kowtows to packed schedules and multitasking parents. A slew of classes arranges social body blasting?customers can tone their torsos with squats, presses, and curls in a BodyPump barbell class or sweat in spinning classes atop a stationary bike equipped with pursuit-style handlebars, adjustable resistance, and a front-mounted E.T. Members of Spectrum Fitness can swing by its Central location and trot on the treadmill until dawn. They can drop off their tykes at the childcare center and take a yoga or kickboxing class. And they can follow a swim by basking in the bronzing light of the tanning bed before sauntering up to the Pro Shop for smoothies.
The staff takes great pains to accommodate newcomers of all ages, levels, and car-stacking abilities. Personal trainers concoct customized fitness regimens during solo and group training sessions, and Silver Sneakers and water aerobics classes bring seniors into the fitness fold.
Snap Fitness enables muscle farmers to exercise efficiently with top-of-the-line cardio and strength training equipment, providing exercisers with a refreshing change of pace from meat-market gyms and tough elementary schoolyards. Members can also take advantage of tanning beds to bronze biceps and the Cardio TV theater, which distracts stationary runners and cyclers with moving pictures. Though 24-hour access keys are not included in today's Groupon, members can purchase them for an extra $30 to arrive at Snap super late and pretend to workout in an Edward Hopper painting, or pound the treadmill at four in the morning and get pumped to host a morning shock-jock radio show.
Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a 30-minute circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making, and a soundtrack of fun, upbeat music includes cues that tell participants it's time to move on to the next station. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use your own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottle to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can. Between each weight machine, ladies pause at recovery stations to keep hearts pumping as exercisers walk, run, or jog in place. With each workout warrior exercising at a different station, the only competition that exists is with one's own burgeoning muscles.
