Infinity Fitness & Medi Spa combines its fully equipped health club with a 3,000-square-foot day spa that revivifies bodies with a slew of pampering services. Coddle weary digits with an Infinity spa manicure, which carefully sculpts nails and cuticles. A hot-towel wrap and hand and forearm massage loosen limbs, while a professional polish refines the phalanges for elegant head scratching and sophisticated wet willies. A pedicure de-stresses steppers with an aromatherapy soak and light massage. Callus removal and exfoliation break through the foot's toughened exterior, softening the skin and warming the sole before a coat of polish seals in any lingering beauty vapors.
At Ocala Fighting Fit Boot Camp, fists and feet deliver knockout blows to calories during 12 boot-camp classes that draw on MMA and kickboxing combat techniques to whip thighs and abs into shape in a nonintimidating environment. During the four-week martial-arts boot camp, students of all fitness levels and skill sets entrust their bodies to certified instructors who orchestrate exercises that most efficaciously achieve results, and periodically motivate stragglers with photos of a skinny, timid, teenage Hulk. Grueling kettlebell lifts alternate with kickboxing drills and other interval and cardio exercises as students will their ways through three weekly sessions.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were accidentally installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circle of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use body weight and fitness levels to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
Novice calorie burners and ripped Michelangelo models alike can take advantage of Anytime Fitness’s three-month membership, which equips bodies with enough treadmills, cycles, elliptical machines, and weights to make them fit enough to run a marathon inside of a swimming pool filled with mud.

A trio of personal-training sessions under the watchful eye of a certified trainer familiarizes sheepish biceps with their new confidence-boosting dumbbell pals. After a workout, retreat to the sanctuary of private showers and restrooms to freshify your newly sculpted anatomy before leaving with a stronger spring in your step.
Femme Addiction teaches an empowering brand of brass-bound gymnastics that builds core strength and confidence through sensual routines as well as traditional workouts that build muscles in a positive group setting. During lessons, students safely improve slinkiness by twirling seductively around a pole as an accredited instructor offers tips and tricks. Participants soon generate lither limbs, toned torsos, and the ability to tantalize shy museum curators by deftly scaling Ionic columns. For those interested in more traditional exercise, five 60-minute body transformation sessions offer an old-school workout regime complemented by accountability, nutrition planning, and motivational halftime speeches. Consult the schedule to finalize your bar-beguiling itinerary.
When Becky Bell injured her knee during marathon training, her doctor gave a fateful prescription: strength and stability exercises. The recommendation sparked Becky's fascination with the art of yoga, and she began to experiment with its mind and body disciplines, earning her 200-hour teaching certification in the process. The steady, focused workouts were different from the volleyball games and hiking trips she was used to. Once she added her own flair to Vinyasa-style poses, however, her drive to share the technique with others kept growing.
At Saffron&Crimson, Becky takes beginners and intermediate yogis alike through fitness classes that infuse fluid stretches with Bible philosophies. She also takes her teachings on the road during custom parties, in-home family classes, and highway-relaxation sessions for drivers who have just been pulled over
