At Sussex Crossfit, workouts change every day and include a mix of weightlifting, gymnastics, and aerobic exercises. The 1,600-square-foot gym houses a variety of equipment such as plyometric boxes, climbing ropes, tires, monkey bars, and rowing machines. Classes are open to individuals of all athletic abilities, as trainers can easily tailor exercises to equally challenge everyone. Ladies can attend any of the Workout of the Day classes, or break a sweat during Hot Momma?s Fit Camp. Trainers with a special certification lead children through activities during the CrossFit Kids class. And if clients want an even more personalized experience, they can sign up for personal-training sessions that tackle individual goals, such as losing weight or preparing to crabwalk a 5K.
Fitness Revolution dedicates all the center's resources to helping individuals work toward their own fitness aspirations. Group classes meet throughout the week in the 2,000-square-foot facility, where attendees of all fitness levels hone their technique and send calories scattering under her watchful eye. In keeping with their passion for interval training, Fitness Revolution's programs cycle through intense cardio blasts interspersed with metabolic resistance training that build muscle and boost metabolism. Meal plans written by a registered dietitian and occasional fitness assessments help attendees stick to their fitness goals outside of class, where they have to face the reality of readily available snacks and the constant hectoring of the Kool-Aid man.
When painting a work of art, you only need a few necessities: brushes, water, and a canvas. Uptown Art provides all of those in addition to step-by-step instructions and a comfortable studio. Its staff requests that students bring nothing at all?except for snacks they'd like to munch on. Couples, children, and entire families are all welcome to work on a 16"x20" canvas, where they might paint anything from an autumn landscape to a perching songbird, depending on the class calendar. Uptown Art also schedules private classes for special events, such as birthdays and bachelorette parties.
