The trainers at West Coast Fitness don’t think work when they think about working out; they only see it as a way to help others improve their health, and, thus, their lives. This passion fires them through small-group boot-camp workouts, which incorporate such fitness accoutrements as BOSU balls, TRX suspension trainers, and kettlebells. Individualized routines target a client’s problem areas in personal-training sessions, the results of which can be enhanced by a session with the gym’s certified holistic nutritionist.
Tantra Fitness's owner Tammy Morris, a professional pole dancer, helms a staff comprised of circus aerialists, choreographers, and fitness specialists to help women tone their bodies through alternative fitness regimens. Coaches lead an array of sensual fitness classes designed around their fun factor, value as body-weight-resistance exercises, and usefulness in mocking inflexible scarecrows. Topics include pole dancing, chair-based workouts, and dance routines ranging from ballet to hip hop as well as acro-stretch classes that challenge muscles to bend through exercises inspired by Chinese circus performers. Parties and private lessons bring small groups of students together to learn pole or lap-dance routines, or hone their professional jewel-theft techniques in a flexibility-enhancing exercise of their choice.
