In ever-varied group CrossFit sessions, high-intensity interval exercises, or highly motivating personal training, the team of coaches at Rx Elite Fitness lead clients through invigorating workouts. Interval-training courses function like boot-camp classes, helping clients spring back into shape through a menu of challenging workouts that are scaled to their abilities—which allows the difficulty to be adjusted as they become more fit and less likely to call the barbell "that thing that looks like a Q-Tip."
The YMCA of Coastal Georgia promotes healthy living, youth development, and social responsibility through a variety of fitness and wellness classes. Membership includes access to gymnasiums, pools, strength and cardio equipment, and group exercise classes such as Contoured Bodies at the Effingham branch, in which simple deep-muscle movements tone the body to improve posture, balance, flexibility, and the likelihood of causing nearby coworkers to sit up straighter in their chairs. Various locations host traditional yoga and flexibility-technique classes, and Zumba classes fuse energetic music with calorie-burning dance moves for a lively workout experience. Groupon buyers also receive $25 to use toward classes, programs, and benefits not included in the monthly membership, such as a 30-minute massage from a licensed massage therapist ($25 for members), or a fall youth soccer session ($50+ for members) that teaches good sportsmanship, the value of exercise, and the importance of being able to manipulate a large object with one's forehead.
FitnessWitness's experienced instructors invoke the power of group exercise through an eclectic schedule of cardio and strength-training classes in a supportive setting. Rev up the heart during 55-minute coed cardio stompers such as Step H.E.A.T., which combines Zumba-esque choreography with step aerobics, and Cardio Drums, in which students grab a pair of drumsticks and pound along to upbeat music, working out the upper body and hard-to-reach inner teenager. Exercisers brandish dumbbells and stretch resistance tubes tailored to their comfort level in the Strength & Balance circuit-training class. To lengthen and strengthen muscles, a FitWit Flow session fuses yoga, Pilates, and balancing exercises popularized by oak trees swaying gently in the autumn wind. FitnessWitness students sweat in a clean, spacious studio framed by lime-green walls and sleek wooden floors.
