The Fit Factory aims to combine the act of getting in shape with a bit a personal entertainment, teaching dance steps during Zumba, self-defense in boxfit, and self-expression through pole fitness. Instructors hold classes up to seven days a week. Outside of regularly scheduled sessions, they hold private pole parties and antigravity hammock parties for groups of ladies looking to enjoy a healthy night out or celebrate a holiday or special occasion.
Under the tutelage of Shihan Allie Alberigo, students of all ages learn the arts of ninjutsu and classical jujitsu, revamped for contemporary warriors. With four decades of martial-arts training under his belt, Allie Alberigo teaches his students about hand-to-hand combat and the use of weapons; he has also expanded classes to include disciplines such as judo, yoga, and kickboxing. The Little Warrior program builds punching ability in children as young as 3, and the Third Eye Insight program includes martial arts, yoga, and meditation classes for students who are blind or visually impaired. During these classes, sighted students can also spar and learn while wearing blindfolds. The facility includes two training floors and an archery range, which gives students ample room to flex without destroying nearby equipment.
The slogan “Non-Stop Body Rocking” is emblazoned high above the heads of the hard-working boot-campers at Silly Rock Boot Camp as they sweat their way through high-intensity sessions. Priscilla Compono is the company’s passionate and experienced personal trainer, and she leads students of all fitness levels through challenging sets of push-ups, burpees, and suspension workouts during her one-hour boot-camp classes. She can customize her workouts to accommodate the skill level and fitness goals of the students in her classes. To do this, Priscilla draws on an artillery of weightlifting routines and exercises that rely on short bursts of intense cardio, including running obstacle courses or running from the company’s patented motivation-inspiring tigers.
With more than 40 years’ teaching experience, VMA Kempo Jiu Jitsu’s certified instructors impart self-defense skills, confidence, and discipline in a range of martial-arts and fitness classes. In coed, women’s-only, and children's classes, students kick, strike, and grapple as they hone techniques drawn from kenpo, brazilian jujitsu, mixed martial arts, and Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots. In women’s-only cardio-kickboxing classes, students boost endurance, flexibility, and strength as pounds melt away.
Victory Martial Arts' MMA style blends six self-defense methods into one potent cocktail. Its constituent elements range from kenpo, which focuses on high-speed striking, to muay thai kickboxing, often dubbed "the art of eight limbs" because of its scrappy use of fists, elbows, knees, shins, and feet. There are swirls of Western boxing and wrestling-style floor grappling, too. To complement MMA sessions, the studio hosts single-style classes on kenpo and Brazilian jujitsu—and a sequence designed especially for kids and teens.
