The trainers at TREO Sports & Fitness work with seasoned athletes as well as clients of all fitness levels to help them achieve their fitness goals, from improving their game to staying in shape. Athletes looking to improve their performance in specific sports get a customizable fitness plan that takes into account fitness level as determined through regular testing and assessment, as well as physiological strengths and weaknesses. In addition to forming training around athletes’ goals, the trainers also consider their schedules, accommodating competitions and mental and physical fatigue from events. Sports performance training is available for athletes aged 10 and older, as are movement-efficiency assessments to make sure they aren’t overexerting themselves while running through late-for-class anxiety dreams.
In addition to sport-specific programs, the trainers also lead classes for general fitness, such as boot camps and fitness training, using the facility’s sweeping outdoor fields and weight room.
Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use your own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottle to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
Fitness 19's founders launched their first family-oriented gyms in 2003, hoping to splash the exercising experience with local flavor and familiarity. Life Fitness cardio machines—including treadmills and ellipticals—unite with strength-training machines and free weights to help members to build leaner physiques as certified personal trainers patrol the deep-red-carpeted workout area. The expert staff can also guide clients through yoga, martial arts, and weight loss–centric personal-training sessions. Every location also hosts a kids' room, where youngsters can craft macaroni kettlebells under the supervision of a full-time staff member.
At Route 20 Fitness, group classes aim to burn twice the fat as a typical workout. People of all fitness levels are welcome to challenge themselves in the 45-minute sessions, which include an invigorating warmup, 20 solid minutes of fat-blasting interval training, and a cool down that focuses on the core.
