They believe 24-hour access to premium cardio and strength-training equipment, innovative easyFIT monitors to track personal progress, and perpetual guidance from certified professionals can help transform physical fitness into an accessible activity that yields measurable and tangible results. In addition to providing online workout rubrics and meal plans, they work to keep sweat glands up and running by offering work out rewards programs, making regular check-in calls, and measuring bodies?sans padded muscle suits?every 30 days.

Backed by a master's degree in art education, 30 years of teaching experience, and an art-therapy certificate, instructor Connie Pruitt makes the painting process easy and fun for students regardless of their skill level.

The YMCA of Greater Des Moines has been promoting healthy living to families and individuals in the surrounding communities since 1868. One month of family membership (good for two adults and any dependants under the age of 23) entitles tribes to full usage of any of the area locations including the brand new YMCA Healthy Living Center. Membership amenities encompass access to fitness equipment, lap and therapeutic pools, more than 500 fitness classes like kickboxing, yoga, tai chi, and water aerobics, reduced program rates, access to the child care nursery, and many other programs and services, which vary according to location. Each family member will also get three sessions of personalized attention from one of the Y’s Healthy Living Coaches, who can help make the most of your month of muscling by helping the whole family become acclimated to the equipment, establish fitness goals, and transform into an entire tribe of variously sized Rocky Balboas.
