During your two personal training sessions, one of ZX Fitness’ experienced personal trainers will work with you to assemble exercises that help you best accomplish your fitness goals, be they tightening your core, shedding extra pounds, improving muscular strength, or picking winning bingo cards. Then you’ll be let loose to use your newfound knowledge and six-week pass during all ZX Fitness group fitness classes and in its fully-loaded facility, which has cardio decks, basketball courts, free weights, large locker rooms, circuit training equipment, juice bars, a supervised children’s area, and more. Group fitness classes, of which there are more than 20, include cycling, dance, kickboxing, yoga, Pilates, and strength training. Unwind after a day of sweating and stretching by watching a sports game on one of the many HDTVs, or warm your socks while dehydrating fresh prunes in the sauna. Class schedules differ at each location.
At Curves, exercisers of all fitness levels move around a circuit of hydraulic-resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine-maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks, filling medicine balls with medicine, and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines account for different body weights and fitness levels to create resistance that matches one's abilities, which thereby decreases 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.
In Motion Fitness builds comprehensive programs to inject clients straight into the beating heart of their fitness goals. Its staggering roster of services surrounds pain, obesity, high cholesterol, and other blights on good health and attacks them from all angles with physical training, online nutrition programs, exercise-program prescriptions, and scientifically calibrated fitness assessments. Although the entire staff holds physical-education degrees and licenses, their wildly divergent backgrounds range from arena-football coaching to zoology, and they bring their unique perspectives into personal training, group fitness classes, physical therapy, and massage. The staff's exercise philosophy combines the principles of corrective exercise with traditional methods such as pushups or dodging meteors to create regimens that not only make the body stronger but do it safely and scientifically.
Heat Fitness and Yoga Instruction emphasizes the role that exercise plays in supporting individuals' well-being. The studio opens its doors to visitors of all ages and fitness levels, encouraging them to explore the schedule of diverse fitness regimens. In addition to teaching traditional Hatha and Vinyasa yoga, the instructors introduce students to yoga styles that incorporate intense heat or aerial silks into the practice. Zumba workouts elevate heart rates and barre lessons create long, lean, toned muscles. By offering so many options, Heat Fitness and Yoga Instruction hopes to inspire its members to embrace a more active, healthier lifestyle.
The personal trainers at Empower Fitness know the way to their clients' hearts: by assessing their heart rate monitors. As part of The Heartzone, each personal training client wears a heart monitor, which is used by the trainer to ensure every client is working out at a safe, results-oriented pace. This way, the heart rate guides when an exerciser should push harder, and when to hold back. Along with personal training, Empower Fitness also offers semi-private group training and Warrior Bootcamp, held every Friday morning.
Fit Avenue's founder and owner Molly pursues fitness from just about every angle, and encourages her students and staff to do the same. Of the 12 types of group fitness classes held at the gym, she regularly leads five of them, ranging from Zumba to Body Rock boot camp. Her skills are also put to use as a personal and small group trainer, where she cooks up original workout routines to help people meet their goals, and she also coaches running classes. She also conducts iFIT workshops, a 12-week program designed to help people make a permanent change in their lifestyle such as cutting out unhealthy foods like chips and the bag they came in.
