Energy Fitness's certified personal trainers help clients capture elusive muscles by leading exercisers over savannahs of workout machines and weight equipment in a 15,000-square-foot facility. A personal training session gets clients off on the right foot by helping them design a fitness regimen tailored to their goals. Trainers have four lines of weight machines at their disposal with which they can personalize workouts for exercisers of all ages and fitness levels. The center's 45 cardio workout machines occupy both limbs and eyes, as personal televisions attached to each machine broadcast news stories about local squirrels who made good. In the weight room, dumbbells clamor to be hoisted.
The trainers at Elite Strength and Performance create and lead high-intensity workouts for guests of all fitness levels. They use equipment such as tires to be flipped or hit with sledgehammers, TRX Suspension Trainers to leverage gravity and body weight for scalable moves, and gymnastics rings to do isometric holds and build core strength.
The well-being enthusiasts behind The Fitness Center for Women know the names of all their members. That’s because creating a community based around health and meaningful relationships is the guiding principle behind the center. To that end, they have brought together group fitness classes such as power yoga, kickboxing, and cycling, six-week personal-training sessions, massage therapy, and nutrition counseling in order to holistically heal all aspects of the body and mind.

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
There is nothing more motivational than results. Every six weeks, we offer clients a fitness assessment so we can objectively see the results they are getting. Scheduling appointments also helps with accountability and ensures that they will stick with a routine.
Do you believe in the maxim, "No pain, no gain?? Why or why not?
Define "pain." Everyone perceives pain differently?to some, the muscle burn often felt during exercise counts as pain, while others don't view it as painful. Basically, mild discomfort and burning sensations in the muscles are OK, while sharp stabbing pains or anything felt within a joint is not.
Sweating to the oldies is acceptable, but sweating to the blues less so. Do you find that certain styles and genres of music generate more intense workouts?
Generally yes, but different people get motivated by different kinds of music. That's why we offer SiriusXM, which enables us to change the station to fit the moods and personalities of the clients we are training at any given time.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We have two primary distinguishers. First of all, we are the area's only fully-private personal training facility. And second, we are the only ones who utilize proprietary fitness programming systems?Aspire8, Cardio Together, and Nutrition Together?to help clients get results.
Paul Carson and Jack Banks started teaching fitness classes 30 years ago in a small abandoned dairy. Since those humble beginnings, they built Malibu Fitness—a modern gym where they help people build rippling muscles. Their trained group fitness instructors lead classes in yoga and Pilates, as well as more high-energy Zumba classes that set Latin dance moves to international tunes. Meanwhile, you’ll hop on a stationary bike for the spinning classes, which rely on intense climbs and sprints to elevate heart rates and burn calories. There’s also the option of one-on-one workouts with personal trainers, who can tailor workouts that shed girth, strengthen muscles, and improve athletic performance.
There are a number of nice bonus amenities at Malibu Fitness—it has flat-screen TVs, locker rooms, and a SunDome stand-up tanning booth. And if you’re hungry after a workout, there’s a shake bar that doles out Island Oasis protein shakes. The well-staffed team here even provides child care. And each year around Thanksgiving, the owners sponsor a road race that donates thousands of dollars to charities to offset America's turkey footprint.
We are a results proven company from top to bottom. All of us at one point decided to make a change and the CrossFit community helped us. We provide a judgment free environment with no mirrors or crazy machines that take a manual to figure out how to operate.
