Laughter is nearly as important as exercise at Good Friends Fitness, where strong personal relationships serve as the backbone to fitness regimens that depend on motivation, accountability, and positivity. During each group workout, certified instructors cultivate camaraderie through shared fun and emotional support, unlike a high-school social clique or a pie fight to the death. Low-impact movements power multi-level Vinyasa yoga routines, while BodyVive sessions capitalize on functional cross training to provide more energy and strength in daily life.
In addition to teaching classes, the staff helms fitness challenges and group training programs to help patrons tackle their fitness goals. To promote safety during workouts, teachers lead form-focused intro sessions for new members and, for an additional charge, a clubhouse corrals kids where they can play in a kids-focused environment.
The certified trainers at Women's World lead females through more than 45 muscle-sculpting classes a week, conditioning bodies in a supportive, ladies-only gym environment. Biceps crunch to the beat during Les Mills, such as Bodypump, which works major muscle groups with an assist from barbells, and Bodystep, which spurs feet to stomp up, over, and around a step, providing a glute-lifting workout to render uncomfortable bum brassieres obsolete. Instructors invoke hot and Ashtanga yoga traditions, guiding limbs and torsos during sessions that improve balance and flexibility, and PiYo extends appendages using Pilates and yoga and then adds a drop of dynamic movement that, like mistaking a large cat for a panther, adds a burst of cardio to the routine. Workouts transform into parties during cardio dance classes, such as the hip-hop-and-kickboxing fusion Turbo Kick or the Latin-influenced Zumba. In addition to a venue for collective perspiration, Women's World also has a selection of cardio and weightlifting equipment for femmes to use when operating on a solo schedule.
Gold's Gym Tallahassee has provided a body-sculpting destination for fitness seekers for more than 20 years. Members take advantage of unlimited access to three locations, each sporting rows of free weights and cardio equipment--including True Fitness treadmills--as well as tanning services. For exercise in a group environment, instructors lead small class training such as Les Mills, while the cardio cinema immerses guests in a projected movie and surround sound as they sweat away calories on treadmills, bikes, and ellipticals.
The multitalented therapists at Enjoy Life Rehabilitation Center steer visitors on the path to good health with technology-based assessments, interventions, and physical-training programs. They have an array of services that helps guests cope with and possibly overcome many conditions. At Enjoy Life, they provide physical therapy, occupational therapy, massage therapy, personal training, and group fitness.
At each of its 14 locations across Georgia and Florida, Kinetix Health Club helps members build powerful muscles and burn fat with a wide range of classes and workouts. Guests maximize their sessions at the gym by working out under the guidance of a professional personal trainer or condition and strengthen their bodies in classes such as RPM indoor cycling, high-intensity Body Pump aerobics, or martial-arts-inspired Body Combat.
