It's a fairly common image from the Middle Ages and from fairy tales: an armoured knight on horseback, riding triumphantly into battle wielding a sword. Today, of course, such a sight would have shocked witnesses almost immediately—unless they're at Academie Duello. A centre for European swordplay and Western martial arts, Academie Duello has revived centuries-old scenes similar to the one above. It teaches students ancient battle techniques, but does not re-enact epic duels or the well-documented silly-string wars that ensued when swords broke.
The 5,000-square-foot facility extracts skills and weapon information from authentic combat manuals and primary-source texts. Its instructors turn that knowledge into an in-depth curriculum, which today provides both adult and children's programs. Most of those programs also help students stay fit, as they replace weights and treadmills with longswords, shields, and rapiers. To immerse themselves further into knighthood, students can check out Academie Duello's museum, which preserves an ever-growing collection of weapons of war, armour, and fight books.
T-Squared Personalized Training's specialized trainers help clients set their own fitness goals, workout schedule, and balanced regimen featuring an array of exercises. Coaches can also work with physicians and physical therapists to build training programs around health concerns such as injuries or being filled with helium. Before each service, trainers evaluate their clients’ needs and goals during free consultations. Staff also helps clients tone bodies and mental attitudes with an array of services such as life coaching, training and evaluation for specific sports, and nutritional counselling to build healthy diets that don’t require clients to hunt their own carrots. Additionally, seminars and workshops, hosted by a team of resident specialists, provide intensives on fitness-focused lifestyle techniques.
The fitness trainers at Element Athletic push their clients to work toward their fitness goals throughout seven fitness classes and one-on-one personal training sessions. Each supervised 55-minute class allows students the freedom to pursue their own fitness agenda and train at their own level, yet also gives them the guidance of a professional instructor. Metabolic Mayhem incorporates kettle bells and suspension ropes to activate fat burning and, in Rawfit, students use plyometrics to strengthen their cores. Students can go empty-handed into Bodyweight 101, which relies on the weight of the body and the dark secrets buried deep within for resistance.
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.
