Because they believe movement is a precise science, the teaching team at Pilates + Yoga only recruits experts. Each certified instructor must have a background of 10 years or more in their movement-based art, whether they practice Pilates, yoga, dance, or interpretive sitting. They wield their knowledge during the studio's classes, adapting mat-based and apparatus moves to suit beginners and Pilates pros alike. Their wealth of experience also allows them to structure specialized lessons for pre- and post-natal women. From moves aboard the reformer machine to Vinyasa sequences to boot-camp circuits, they compose workouts that hone both strength and mental focus. The Pilates + Yoga studio reflects the same level of commitment toward the environment that the teachers display for their practice. Students stretch on bamboo flooring, their silhouettes dimly illuminated by low-lighting sconces, and solar blankets deter the sun. Reusable cups and cloth towels cut down on waste, and the Return Your Mat policy ensures that no mat purchased at the studio is thrown out or forced to work under wrestling Barbie dolls.
Director of Red Rock Fencing Center Frank Van Dyke is a longtime expert when it comes to the sport, with more than 30 years as a fencer, coach, and referee. He trained under one Olympian and three Olympic coaches before becoming a certified member of the U.S. Fencing Coaches Association and ascending to the board of the United Fencing Federation. The energetic Van Dyke does not rest on his laurels, competing to maintain world-class A-rated abilities with an épée, which crowns his talent with foil and sabre. In both instruction and competition, he draws techniques from German, Russian, Chinese and American Olympic schools, and specializes in strip and team tactics.
The fencing center embodies both Van Dyke's zeal for excellence and dedication to his community. Olympic and World Cup instructors teach skills in all three weapons to competitive and amateur students, who parry across custom flooring designed to absorb the shocks to joints and muscles caused by forceful lunges and sudden NASA landings. Every Saturday, the team hosts a public tournament for anyone who contributes to its accompanying potluck, and heads beyond the center to work with boy scouts and schoolchildren.

At Bodysport Fitness Center, highly trained instructors motivate pupils of all athletic abilities during high-intensity group boot-camp classes designed by experienced personal trainers. During each coed session, a barrage of full-body workouts replaces lazy fitness routines and helps build lean yet strong physiques. Each trainer adapts his or her program to fit the personalities and abilities of the students, and changes the regimen routinely to confuse muscles, enraging them until they get strong enough to do something about it.
Exercisers feed off each other?s energy during the fun 45-to-60-minute sessions, cultivating a group bond and camaraderie based on mutual success and encouragement. The recently revamped program may incorporate elements of kettlebells, free weights, kickboxing, and even yoga alongside classic boot-camp musts, including calesthenics, plyometrics, core workouts, and primal screaming. During comfortable weather, students work away excess calories in scenic outdoor parks and move into the gym?s 8,400-square-foot facility in cases of extreme heat.
The experienced instructors at Art Starts Here foster artistic abilities in a gamut of mediums, leading classes that teach new techniques and instill confidence in Picassos of all ages. Supervised kids' classes facilitate budding creative expression and help keep paint blobs out of mouths or Roth IRAs and on paper where they belong. Mommy & Me classes enhance bonds between art, tots, and parents, and a preschool art class helps kids grasp the basics of sculpture, drawing, or painting.
Adult and teen classes are more freeform than the classes for younger humans. Nascent Monets work at their own pace to master a variety of techniques, from acrylics to sculpture, drawing, oil painting, and professional-grade forgery. Art gurus proffer individual assistance and advice throughout each class, nudging technical ability higher, teaching new skills, and sparking inspiration in fertile minds. Sessions help students see unintended strokes not as mistakes, but as creative detours that lead to new avenues of thought or abstract impressionistic landscapes of Reno.
