It takes more than just a few extra pounds to gain acceptance into Get in Shape For Women’s weight-loss program. That’s because the staff wants to make sure each candidate is committed, coachable, and ready to chase a measurable goal. This falls under the pillar of accountability, just one of the four foundations of the Get in Shape For Women training regimen, which includes weigh-ins and body-fat-percentage measurements every two weeks. The other three program pillars––weight training, cardio, and nutrition––help participants slim down and satisfy these checkpoints with help from relied-upon exercises including lunges, squats, core training, pushes, and pulls. With only one to four women per group, trainers are able to customize these moves to each participant’s fitness level, increasing difficulty as endurance improves and scaling it back when tired sneakers cry uncle.
The sparkling facilities and team of personal trainers at Fitness 19 encourage new and experienced gym-goers to realize their fitness goals. Well-maintained Life Fitness elliptical trainers and stair climbers stimulate cardiovascular systems, and treadmills build stamina when jogging and perfecting the moonwalk. Lifters orchestrate imaginary operas with heavy barbells and hand weights, and strength machines, such as crossover cables and squat machines, keep muscles moving. Develop a resistance to gravity by battling the arm-grounding heft of kettlebells and medicine balls or solidify amorphous muscles with the vertical strivings of a linear Smith machine. During two half-hour personal-training sessions, members can develop a one-on-one relationship with an experienced trainer as they craft a nutrition and workout plan that works toward specific personal goals, such as running a relay race with a litter of kangaroos.
Jim's education wing boasts an impressive stable of professional, gifted instructors, including three-time Grammy nominee, Todd Buffa, who can prep your pipes for pitch-perfect performance as a personal voice instructor. Learn the ins and outs of tonality and pitch from Todd, who can talk about opening for Miles Davis or the night he and Michael Bolton found a Siberian tiger in their hotel room. Aspiring guitar-shredders and piano-pounders can also become proficient in scales, chords, and the melodic basics of their instruments. Jim's recommends bringing your own vocal chords, but it will provide guitars or pianos to instrument-less students during lessons. Lessons are scheduled based upon availability and demand, so prospective pupils should call ahead to reserve a spot.

Bay Area Yoga Center's team of dedicated yoga instructors lead a robust schedule boasting 39 weekly classes for all ages, taught in the Ashtanga and Vinyasa traditions. Designed for students with little or no yoga experience, Bay Area's Basics class acquaints fledgling flexers with sun-salutation postures and deep-breathing techniques that provide the foundation for more challenging Vinyasa flows. Once downward dogs master sit, down, and sun salutation, advanced classes encourage mat mavens to explore challenging extensions of the primary postures to increase strength, balance, and physical and mental endurance while maintaining focus on proper alignment. The Yin-yoga practice concentrates on opening up the body's hard-to-reach connective tissues with longer-held poses to increase range of motion and help get to those hard-to-reach itches in the middle of the back.
