The experienced, certified trainers at Ultimate Fitness conduct intense boot-camp sessions for small groups and one-on-one personal training sessions with exercise regimens tailored to the individual. A military-trained fitness instructor leads exercisers through a month of unlimited one-hour boot-camp sessions from 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. Monday–Friday, and from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday–Thursday, helping participants to shed pounds and coordinate camouflage gym shoes with complimentary sweatbands. No equipment is required; workout warriors meet at the gym before heading outside (weather permitting) for an intense workout designed for all ages.
The dedicated coaches at Hot Mamas Fitness motivate women of all fitness levels through heart-pumping classes, customized meal plans, and single-sex workouts. Members and punch-card holders can commit caloric arson during sweaty Old School aerobics sessions or build strength by lifting barbells and stacks of old Spice Girls CDs during Girl Power classes. PiYo combines Pilates and yoga to develop powerful midsections, and Zumba churns up Latin music and rhythmic dance moves for a session of high-energy shimmying.
Until brain transplant surgery becomes a reality, humans are stuck in the bodies they're born in. The trainers at The Body Shop—led by owner Elizabeth Carnley—aim to help clients make the most of that situation. Their women-only classes are designed to build muscle, increase endurance, and burn fat. They set hearts racing in high-energy Zumba dance classes, or build muscular power with boot camps that incorporate heavy dumbbell lifting, one of Elizabeth's favorite exercises. To keep their students motivated, they provide gentle verbal encouragement and festoon the walls with posters with phrases such as "Sweat is Fat Crying" or "Your Brain is Not a Negative Integer." To make their classes as convenient as possible, the studio hosts a first-come, first-served childcare service, capable of looking after up to ten tykes at a time.
Payden Morgan can look at anyone and see their inner athlete, and he wants to help his clients unlock that athleticism within. Through workouts that change every day, Payden helps guests reach their fitness goals with intense interval training, weightlifting, and cardio drills.
When Ed Norice left the United States Navy in search of a new career, he found fresh enemies to battle domestically: obesity and heart disease. He started Impressive Fitness The Jungle to combat these illnesses and give his fellow citizens a path towards healthy lifestyles.
Norice and his two instructors, Aubree and Rodney, draw from a vast repertoire of exercise styles to wage their war. TRX resistance bands force the muscles of the body to work in concert and strengthen the body from head to toe. Martial-arts skills lend a practical edge to every workout, increasing endurance and arming students with basic self-defense techniques. Outside of group classes, the trio offers personal training and nutritional consultation to help prevent clients from making unhealthy choices in their diet, such as eating a whole birthday cake and then eating the cake’s candles.
The athletic alchemists at Brown Fitness’s Camp Kettlebell stir flexibility, strength, and cardio into 45-minute class concoctions designed to whip bodies into shape. Employing the kettlebell, a grip-granting handled weight, certified BMI-abolishing instructors lead sessions tailored to activity amateurs or the workout-weathered, who attend three times a week. A one-month membership to the online nutrition program grants students custom recipes, following an initial body assessment. Participants should come prepared with a towel, workout mat, bottled water, and comfortable clothing on their person, and "Eye of the Tiger" playing in their ears. Morning, midday, and evening sessions fit even the surliest schedules. Prospective iron pumpers should call Brown Fitness to schedule their first class.
