Vasa. The Latin word for "vessel," it's one way of describing something that contains the mind's hope, the body's ambitions, and the spirit's goals. It's also the name of Vasa Fitness, an inclusive gym that acts as the vessel for (and catalyst of) its members' fitness aspirations. At 17 locations throughout Utah, the gym's more than 140,000 members draw strength and inspiration from cardio and free-weight studios, personal training, and group fitness classes. In addition to achieving personal goals, they also target their in-game performance, training on turf that mimics conditions found everywhere from the football field to the soccer pitch. It's not all hard work, though. The gyms also come with amenities ranging from cardio cinema centers to on-site childcare programs.
At each of Crossroads Fitness' four locations throughout the Wastach Front, members of all ages build strong, healthy bodies through a regimen of group classes, personal training, and extensive wellness evaluations and health assessments. Registered dietitians and fitness experts help clients manage their fitness goals, while a schedule of BodyPump, Zumba, yoga, and resistance training burn away unwanted fat while building lean muscle. After leveling up their endurance and speed with sports-performance training or flexing their legs in a cycling class, members relax and rehabilitate muscles with on-site massage therapy.
Even if you switch between running forwards and backwards, treadmill workouts can get monotonous. Luckily, that isn't the case with CrossFit West Jordan’s workouts, which, in keeping with the CrossFit tradition, change daily. During one session, someone might swing a sledgehammer through the air; during another, they might flip a tire end over end, then take a rewarding nap inside of it. The end goal remains the same, though—to build rippling muscle and amp up cardio strength.

Today, Tom draws from his own fitness experiences and guides others at a his own training center—Trainer Zone Fitness. Within his professional studio, Tom conducts both small-group and personal-training sessions for fitness seekers of all abilities.
