The Mayberry Athletic Center offers more than workouts. The gym also fosters a sense of community where members can feel welcome and even encouraged to challenge themselves while pursuing individual fitness goals. With 5,000 square feet of space as well as access to the nearby trails along the Truckee River, the Mayberry Athletic Center provides visitors with all of the equipment and amenities needed to transform their bodies. Treadmills and other cardio equipment allow members to watch the flat-screen televisions while they get their pulses racing. Strength-training machines and free weights help sculpt toned muscles. The space even features a swath of astroturf for anyone seeking agility training or experience tending a faux garden.
The Mayberry Athletic Center's coaches also offer professional guidance in many forms. Personal-training sessions provide visitors with the knowledge and support that they need to design an individually tailored workout regimen. Additionally, the center's group classes help build strength and endurance in a supportive, communal setting. These training programs can combine functional exercises with cardio to create full-body workouts for all fitness levels.
As a new mother, Tanya Rose Bordner found herself suffering from the severe headaches, hormonal imbalances, and emotional lows that often accompany motherhood. She knew she needed to take better care of herself and decided to try Bikram yoga. Though skeptical at first, she found herself hooked after one class when she discovered that she felt better physically, emotionally, and spiritually, and she eventually decided to become a Bikram-yoga instructor.
Now, Tanya and her team of certified instructors—all of whom have trained for several hundred hours—strive to share the benefits that Tanya felt in that first class with others. Using two breathing exercises designed to circulate oxygenated blood, these instructors lead students through 26 postures that carve out toned muscles and pump up flexibility. The classes take place in a 105-degree room with a recently renovated rubber floor, and after each session, staff members encourage students to press an ice-cream cone or the provided frozen lavender towels against their heated brows.
The founder of Baby Boot Camp Sparks, Kristen Horler, is a nationally certified fitness instructor whose experience honing pre- and postpartum physiques earned her a spot on ePregnancy magazine's expert panel.

Resistance tubes, strollers, and bundles of joy act as strength-training accouterments, helping mothers develop swift reflexes for dodging spit-up and premature lines of questioning from babies about the origins of peanut butter. Mothers shed calories while shaping up and mingling with their children, as well as meeting other moms. For maternal ovens still baking buns, the class helps strengthen muscles in preparation for labor. Fitness regimens follow guidelines set by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and are safe for life givers of all fitness levels.
