With hundreds of locations throughout the world, Fitness Together contours the global musclescape one individual at a time with customized workouts. Beginning with a body consultation and assessment, clients are classified into different training zones leading to goal-specific programs that help them reach their true fitness potential. During the 45-minute sweat sessions, a trained muscle tutor supervises squats to ensure muscles are properly stretched and showered in both praise and post-perspiring soap. The one-on-one attention allows the trainer to fine-tune movements, tone trouble zones, and push students to keep going when they'd otherwise quit or become distracted by the fragile beauty of a passing hummingbird.
At Pilates Plus Restoration Studio, instructors Laurie, Michele, Archana, Dee, Linda, and Sue lead workouts that put every client in the pilot seat of his or her own fitness journey. The instructors and space work in unison to cultivate a supportive, non-competitive atmosphere. During six different types of classes, machines like the Cadillac, the Reformer, and the Ladder Barrel challenge the body in dynamic ways. Group fitness is the focus here, but the team also offers Reiki therapy, private lessons, and small group workouts. Small group Reformer classes include Reformer, Spine Corrector, and Rings & Rollers.
Medford Fitness dedicates its 36,000 square feet to all things fitness. Two workout floors claim 10,000 square feet, filled with more than 50 cardio machines, 30 pieces of free-weight equipment, and two open studio spaces for functional training. The group exercise room spans 1,600 square feet of hardwood floors, where exercisers launch into sessions of Cardio Pump, Pilates, and kickboxing. Nearby, 20 bikes spin in place inside the indoor cycling room, four lanes stretch across a heated swimming pool, and service lines divvy up two racquetball courts, where patrons test their reflexes, courage, or hypotheses about being able to head-butt a racquetball.
Thom Callen sat behind his first drum kit at age 4. By 15, he was drumming at a professional level. These days, his skills with the skins have landed him gigs with award-winning songwriters and touring funk groups. But when he's not showcasing his talents, Thom trains fellow beat keepers of all ages and skill levels at Callan Music and Drum Studio.
After seating students behind a professional set, Thom teaches basic methods, such as keeping a simple beat. He then builds upon those tricks to more advanced techniques, like executing perfect drum fills while napping. Each lesson caters to students' individual paces, as well as their favorite styles, including jazz, rock, or world rhythm. If pupils provide an SD card, Thom can even record the lessons so students can listen back afterward.
