As a 24-hour gym, Anytime Fitness's moniker has a literal meaning. Members can pump iron or sweat out stress at the nearly 2,000 North American locations anytime they feel like it. And health conscious night owls who show between dusk and dawn aren’t confined to exercise machines or bench-pressing their sleeping children; fitness classes run all day and night via video kiosks that can be accessed at any hour.
The certified trainers at Maximum Results ATX take a whole-body approach to fitness. Each personal-training session begins with a fitness assessment, which takes into account measurements—including body weight and fat percentage—as well as the client’s medical history and fitness objectives. The trainers then use this information to proffer nutritional guidance and customize a workout plan with means to track your progress and set goals.
Led by Ryan Hardy, a certified krav maga instructor for 14 years, instructors guide clients through workouts where they slam 6-foot bags with fists and legs for 45 minutes. Alternatively, Combat Cardio classes incorporate more cardio and drills alongside fight techniques.
Certified personal trainers Peter Kanicki and Jacob Cole are dedicated to helping their clients build muscle and burn fat in a fun, laid-back atmosphere. Introducing people to new exercises not found in typical group fitness classes, the duo base their small group classes in applied functional science, ensuring smarter, not harder, workouts. Each group session is held indoors in their spacious wood-floored studio, and incorporates floor work, dumbbells, and timed exercises.
BodyFlex Gym keeps its doors open 24/7 so members can break a sweat whenever the urge hits. The 7,000-square-foot facility fills its innards with free weights, machines, cardio areas, space for group classes, and locker rooms with showers. Nationally certified trainers create custom workouts during personal-training sessions, and they're also on hand to help create a diet plan or change your Second Life avatar to match your new physique.
There's energy everywhere within Life Is LIfe Training, and their staffers want to teach people how to harness it. During Quantum Coaching sessions, they explore meditation techniques and explain the secrets to using natural energy as a means to a specific end, such as breaking a bad habit. The staff can also clear energy blockages with chakra massage sessions, or simply remove muscular tension with soothing table massages.

At CATZ, you'll find a positive, supportive environment helmed by jocular certified trainers who once coached elite athletes. Their aim is an environment that hearkens back to the age of childhood when exercise was a function of youthful exuberance—when you ran, jumped, and boot camped through the fields and forests with nary a thought about cellulite and belly pudge. Workouts vary from class to class in order to push your limits and keep your body growing stronger.
