Since 1995, the staff at Classic Bodyworks 24 Hour Gym & Fitness has kept the family-owned fitness studio in pristine condition?and now, it's accessible to members at any hour, day or night. Long lines of ellipticals and treadmills await inside, in addition to a variety of free-weights, machines, and little notes hidden here and there that simply read, "Flex." A number of group aerobics classes are also available to members in the airy studio. Personal trainers are frequently on-hand to work with visitors and help reach fitness or weight-loss goals.
BodyMax Fitness' 25,000-square-foot facility features a cardio theater, racquetball courts, and a slew of weights and workout machines, including Power Plates. To make sure exercisers don't feel overwhelmed by the facility's size, the staff of personal trainers and group fitness instructors lead one-on-one workouts and classes, such as yoga, Zumba, and TRX suspension training. Before or after exercising, members can take advantage of convenient amenities, such as childcare services and a smoothie bar, where they can cool off by pouring a frosty smoothie over their sweaty faces.
The only full-service women-only gym in Highland, Womens Core Fitness Center is a supportive, laid-back environment that welcomes all women to come and work up a sweat. There are multiple cardio and strength-training machines, and clients can work out individually or in small-group fitness classes. Certified instructors lead more than 25 classes per week, ranging from Zumba to INSANITY and Turbo Kick. Personal training and childcare are available as well.
Whether clients intend to step into the ring or not, the teachers at Active Edge Lifestyle & Fitness Center have the tools to get them ready to fight. The gym contains a regulation boxing ring and martial arts mats to simulate competitive contests. Elsewhere students can simply pound away on heavy bags or punching dummies, letting off stress while shedding fat. Apart from martial arts training classes, the instructors also host noncombative fitness classes, such as Zumba.
