For 11 years, the instructors and trainers have helped clients achieve their fitness and weight loss goals. Now the workout institution has reopened its doors as Red Zone Fitness, where at this boutique style gym, in a relaxed environment, clients choose their workout duration, even in group classes. With 30-minute one-on-one or group personal-training sessions or 40- to 45-minute group fitness classes, the fitness studio follows the FITT principle: Frequency, Intensity, Time, and Type. Sessions depend on various factors that include strength aerobics, performance goal focus, exercise biomechanics, and effort. Experienced instructors lead students through group fitness classes that include Red Zone training, a group class for women that provides a heart-rate-monitored, full-body workout and strengthens the cardiovascular system in just 40- to 45- minutes with resistance and cardio training.
In 2001, dancer Carrie Rezabek Dorr invited exercisers to join her in ballet-based workouts. Held in the basement of an office building without a staff, a sign outside, or even a bathroom, Carrie transformed her small business into a national franchise with locations in 33 states. Her Pure Barre system helps sculpt long, lean muscles. Using a ballet barre and isometric movements, the exercisers drastically shape areas such as the abs, hips, arms, and butt.
Tibetan Buddhist and Taoist Master Chufei Tsai presides over Zen Village, a multifaith spiritual center.

The eclectic catalog also includes introductions to the tenets of Buddhism, the basics of Zen living, and the art of brewing tea from Asia.
