Trainer and King Studio founder Kathleen King feels that any fitness program should begin with a proper education. Her studio's lessons cover not only proper form when exercising, but the nutrition and lifestyle habits that affect health on a daily basis. Under the gallery-style track lighting of her private studio, students receive an education in strengthening their cores in Reformer Pilates and TRX suspension classes or garner one-on-one support in personal-training sessions. Kathleen shares her commitment to nutritional edification and passion for puffy white hats with regular healthy-eating classes as well as by posting recipes on the studio’s website.
The trainers at CrossFit Aether have a unique understanding of their clients’ struggles to get in shape, because only a few years ago, they were in the same spot. Seeking to improve their lives through fitness, they rallied around owner Matt Van Dyke to mold a method of exercise that allows individuals’ inherent strength to bubble to the surface. Rooted in four fundamental elements—motivation, nutrition, action, and renewal—the CrossFit regime consists of varied daily workouts that incorporate functional movements such as burpees and sprints. This unique blend of weightlifting and gymnastic maneuvers readies athletes for more advanced classes, personal training, or running with the bulls while honing overall fitness.
