Though its name may conjure fantasies about sprinting down crowded streets or bench-pressing buses stalled in traffic, Urban Active Fitness grants its members abundant space in which to spread out and follow their workout proclivities. At dozens of locations across the Midwest and South, members can sculpt their bodies in whichever manner they choose—from personal training with resistance machines and free weights to group classes in cycling, Zumba, and Pilates. A number of group classes draw on the gym’s urban theme for inspiration. Urban Iron, for example, focuses on building muscles that resemble the cast-iron beams of skyscrapers, and Urban Yoga closely imitates the poses necessary to squeeze onto a subway train at rush hour.
The personal trainers at ProMatx pluck clients from the chaos of unorganized weight-loss programs and introduce fitness routines that are scientifically calibrated to breed results. Within a welcoming, laid-back atmosphere, resident health buffs assess bodies and map out meals to augment 12-week regimens of intense exercise. In addition to familiar routines that include step aerobics or plyometrics, some fitness sessions may incorporate unconventional techniques such as flipping tires or unicycling on a treadmill. Buttressed by nutritional coaching and group fitness classes, the routines aim to get participants fit without getting a surgeon involved.
Occupational therapist and licensed massage therapist Gwen Jones sees wellness in a different light than most healers, focusing on physical health at the cellular level. She also recognizes the role that emotions play in health. At Take A New Approach Health & Wellness Center, Gwen's unconventional philosophy takes shape in holistic bodywork, including massage and Reiki. She also offers biocommunication, a method of biofeedback that assesses stressors, allergens, and other factors that impact the body negatively in order to create a holistic-health plan that fights them.
Working as a paramedic for 10 years, Beth Thompson witnessed the damage of unhealthy eating habits up close and personal. Her subsequent studies led her to create Target Metabolism, a health and wellness company that preaches weight loss through accurate analysis of the body and caloric accountability. Here, registered dietitians work with clients to create personal portraits of their metabolic needs, and massage therapists offer treatments to help the body relax during the weight-loss process.
Whether patients are 18 or 80, the staff at Infinite Mind & Body works hard to make them feel their best.
