When they aren’t training NFL players such as Reggie Bush and Andrew Luck, the staff at Athletic Gaines might be seen doling out fitness tips in Men’s Health magazine or on other media outlets such as ESPN. Founded by Travelle Gaines, the gym and its squadron of coaches help clients achieve their goals by using the same techniques and equipment that they use when they coach professional athletes. The gym’s programs include personal training and boot camps, as well as training for high-school and college athletes and NFL players during the off-season. Focused on creating a solid athletic foundation, the programs work to improve areas such as linear and lateral speed, agility, explosive power, and weight-training techniques.

Trainer Griffin White understands how easy it is to slip into a lethargic lifestyle. As a child, he slowly replaced sports and physical activity with a steady diet of junk food. Eventually, when hefting the extra weight he had gained grew tiresome, Griffin enrolled in the National Academy of Sports Medicine and whipped his body back into shape. Today at Mind Muscle Fitness, Griffin liberates clients from superfluous pounds using kettlebells. Exercisers swing the bulbous weights through arcs that power up multiple muscles at once, much like river dancing while directing traffic. Griffin's kettlebell boot-camp classes, set to pulsing music, enlist this unique range of motion to tone and limber up bodies as up to 25 attendees blast through cardio and strength-building routines. He switches up workouts each class, keeping both minds and muscles engaged to speed up results more safely than outfitting a treadmill with hyperdrive. Appropriate for all skill levels, the boot camps include individual attention from Griffin, as do his personal-training sessions.

MALLA's freestanding equipment has roots that stretch back over hundreds of years. They evoke the poles of Mallakhamb––an Indian sport that was designed to test the strength and nimbleness of fighters. They would use the pole to support their acrobatic feats and aspiring dance careers, twisting, climbing, and flipping along its vertical length to build strength and stamina. Today, MALLA's routines deliver similar toning effects in a mere 30 minutes. And you needn't be a soldier to sign up, as instructors have mastered progressive modifications for students of all skill levels. They guide classes through a mix of specific strength and cardio drills that utilize the exclusively engineered MALLA equipment for leverage. Sometimes participants will grip the equipment to lift their lower bodies off the ground, while other exercises have them hold onto it for balance as they extend and stretch their limbs. The regimen constitutes an invigorating group workout that activates several muscle groups and keeps heart rates elevated, all while music plays in the background, and MALLA equipment adapts itself to the fitness level of the student.

Equipment: Rebounder, hand weights Students should bring: water, towel Average class length: 60 minutes Staff: 5?10 people Good for beginners: Yes Parking: Metered street parking Miniature trampolines pepper Spirit Bounce's studio, but they're not for performing acrobatics or gymnastics routines. Instead, students incorporate them into a high-intensity workout known as "rebounding," during which they might use the rebounders to jump up and down, jog in place, or even perform yoga pose on the springy surface. Designed to strengthen the entire body?especially the core muscles?and improve endurance, the regimen consists of movements that draw on the three natural forces of acceleration, deceleration, and gravity?a muscle-building trifecta that explains why Sir Isaac Newton was also known as the first Mr. Universe. And thanks to the rebounders' low-impact, bouncy surfaces, joints remain protected throughout the fun-focused workout.
