BrickFit Fitness and Wellness is a boutique gym with reformer-based Pilates classes, ballet barre workouts, and spinning sessions. But it also doubles as a wellness center, where two doctors?Dr. Joseph Horgan and Dr. Susan Manella?supervise customized weight-loss regimens. The two facilities reinforce each other, for example a weight-loss program could incorporate fitness classes, or a massage at the wellness center could prime muscles for a Pilates class.
Be inspired. Be Motivated. Be balanced. That's the motto at Studio Be, a health club dedicated to helping each and every client be the best they can...well, be. To accomplish this task, class sizes are kep small so that the seasoned staff can provide one-on-one attention to each and every yoga, Pilates, boot camp, or spinning participant. Meanwhile, personal trainers don't just lead guests through the motions of a repetitive workout: instead, they educate clients on the proper ways to exercise and eat right and closely monitor their progress towards fitness their goal, whether that's running a marathon or just dropping a few pounds.
From boot camp to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, spin class to capoeira, Knockout Zone's curriculum forks into several paths to fitness. And students are in good hands when it comes to their martial-arts education: the staff of decorated instructors includes former MMA fighter Jorge Pereira and Diego Devera, former champion of Argentina in light-contact karate. The studio's schedule also includes kids' programs in Tae Kwon Do and boxing.
If you want to perform Pilates as Joseph Pilates originally envisioned it, Zoeli Pilates may be the place for you. The facility's instructors adhere to classical Pilates techniques during their Reformer and Tower classes, helping students strengthen their cores while increasing flexibility, coordination, and spatial awareness. To help personalize practice, they even schedule private, one-on-one sessions, as well as semi-private sessions, which can be made more private if both participants wear blindfolds. To complement the core-strengthening workouts, Zoeli schedules other classes such as spin, yoga, Zumba, and ballet barre.
The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 5 or 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
Inside the new Community Fitness Centers, formerly a Gold's Gym, exercisers scorch calories and tighten and tone on their own or in group fitness classes. Many of Community Fitness's machines feature individual iPod docks and TVs, which, unlike a person yelling, "hot dog!" after they hit 10 reps, pleasantly distract guests while they get in a good workout.
Many of the facility's group fitness classes also help people stay in the zone with the use of pulse-pounding music. Classes include everything from spinning to Hatha yoga to Show Dance, a choreographed dance fitness class.
