Length, grace, and a healthy body. These are the focuses of Barre3 founder Sadie Lincoln. To achieve these results collectively, however, Sadie knew she needed to come up with a completely new routine. Working with yogis, professional dancers, doctors, and athletes, she created the Barre3 system. It's a three-step sequence that consists of isometric holds, low-impact movements, and recovery stretching. This combination strengthens cores and aligns postures while sculpting long, lean muscles and burning calories. While upbeat music fills the studio, trainers lead small groups through a heart-racing sequence of yoga-inspired poses and pilates-based exercises. The ballet barre comes into use when striking muscle-building dance poses and stretches.
It's a system that has had proven results, which has spurred the successful growth of Barre3 locations throughout the country. Today, fitness enthusiasts can find a Barre3 studio in 18 states, the District of Columbia, and the Philippines. An easy-to-follow routine, Barre3 can also be performed at home with online workouts. These workouts are designed to fit busy schedules with routines that range from 10?60 minutes. All that's needed for online workouts is a Barre3 core ball, weights, an exercise mat, and a sturdy, waist-high surface such as the top of Danny DeVito's head.
Elevating fitness potential and forging healthier lifestyles. That's the goal at SuperNatural CrossFit, plain and simple. Its trainers enact that plan through CrossFit workouts—a system of functional movements performed at a high intensity. It's a system that borrows from gymnastics, Olympic lifting, cardio, and resistance training methods, and is embraced by firefighters, police officers, and the military. It's fitting, then, that SuperNatural's coaches come from police, SWAT, and Olympic lifting backgrounds. Experts in CrossFit, they scale their workouts to each individual, keeping goals realistic and within reach. They also mix up routines daily to keep everyone pumped, engaged, and ready to tackle exercises such as kettlebells, sprints, and plyometrics. Though all classes involve personalized attention, trainers provide private weightlifting classes as well.
The Florida Muay Thai LLC owners and trainers, Paul Marfort and Robert Mosier, have studied the ancient fighting style from coaches around the world, learning and competing in tournaments as far away as Italy, Uruguay, and South Africa. But at home in their studio, they're less concerned with shaping new competitive fighters as they are with making muay thai accessible to students of all ages, abilities, and walks of life. Classes—available for both kids and adults—focus on correct stance, pad work, bag work, and boxing drills, and also aim to foster a sense of camaraderie among students through teamwork. What's more, a special women's-only self-defense class is also taught at the studio. The course doubles as a high-intensity cardio workout as students learn potentially life-saving skills and gain the strength and confidence to handle all sorts of situations.
