True fitness should be paid in sweat, not dollars—at least, that's the belief at this reasonably priced fitness studio. Six days a week, instructors make students pay up with cardio and strength-training activities that are tailored for all skill levels. Held in the mornings and evenings, the small-group classes accommodate busy schedules by lasting 35 minutes at most.
The inspiring trainers at MetaBody lead troops of women workouteers in results-getting one-hour workouts several times weekly. The fun classes utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment ideal for both beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. MetaBody's motivational instructors will use your instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. They’ll keep your muscles guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so you’ll never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth-brushing. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early morning boot camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late evening class. In addition to the fitness classes, you will receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound-loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching.
A joint venture between a professional boxer and a team of successful kickboxing-equipment tycoons, Title Boxing Club maintains a network of dozens of studios spread across 19 different states, winning over a devoted clientele with its invigorating and engaging boxing- and kickboxing-themed classes. Each workout uses the heart-healthy exercise of cardio training to satisfy people’s innate desire to punch and kick something other than a broken jukebox. Participants build lithe, strong muscle tissue by delivering powerful blows to punching bags, and build flexibility and agility by practicing roundhouse kicks and hooks. Students can build their core strength and endurance with medicine balls and burpees, enlist a qualified personal trainer to practice their newfound skills in the ring, or just torch calories during intense full-body Power Hour workouts.
Since 1993, the Ultimate Fighting Championship has been one of America's favorite sources of sports entertainment and methods of resolving tied gubernatorial elections. UFC has now set its sights on granting regular people with the fitness of its TV fighters by opening a series of professional gyms. There, group classes taught by professional fighters and coaches help members hone both their bodies and their minds with the practice of kickboxing, MMA, and muay thai. Guests may burn between 800 to 1,000 calories per class for some disciplines. Other programs include children's classes for boys and girls, and personal training that can focus skills and get students comfortable in the ring.
Attend classes at Randori Jiu-Jitsu and you'll be learning from instructors with impressive resumes. Half of the studio’s staff holds a black belt in either Brazilian jiu jitsu or judo, and one member, Leandro Valdes, actually holds both. The team also includes professional MMA fighter Bobby “The Wolfman” Moffett and ISSA-certified Master Trainer Michael Milani. Together, these seasoned instructors share their knowledge of Brazilian jiu jitsu, mixed martial arts, judo, baking a bundt cake that won't get stuck in the pan, and kickboxing during classes at their studio, which is accredited by the North American Grappling Association.
Per its name, Family Martial Arts designs its classes to accommodate fighters of all ages—the youngest students, in the "Tiny Tigers" program, are just four years old, and the adult classes impose no age limit. When it comes to fitness, every student benefits from the classes, which tone physiques and impart key self-defense strategies better than telling everyone that The Rock is your dad. For developing kids, however, there are more holistic advantages, too. The non-violent drills build motor skills and coordination, but perhaps more importantly, they build focus, which can lead to improved school performance and decreased hyperactivity.
