Yoga For Everyone’s experienced instructor, Hillary Bispham, personalizes poses for all body types and abilities within her group-class sessions, allowing for an unintimidating approach to yoga. Leading a schedule of classes based on Structural Yoga teachings, Hillary augments the dynamically flowing transitions of traditional Vinyasa practice by introducing personalized postural adjustments to ease newbies into practice and challenge stretching veterans. Beginner to advanced level sessions lead pupils through a series of poses that takes into consideration differences in body composition and flexibility while emphasizing relaxation, conscious breath, and unconscious yodeling. By tailoring instruction to match physical ability, Structural Yoga ensures a practice safer than stretching on yoga mats encased in bubble wrap.
Exercisers lunge, leap, and lift around the gym, their feet supported by Parisi Fitness Centers' logo-emblazoned hardwood floor. It shines between mats in yoga class, blurs beneath the sliding platforms of Pilates reformers, and supports the stationary wheeling of spinning classes with stoic resignation. Finally, it gives way to plush carpeting in the strength-training area, where patrons blast their lats and abs, and personal trainers craft personalized regimens in one-on-one sessions.
Further accommodating guests, the gym's staffers walk the floor to dole out technique pointers, and provide childcare services while parents shed sweat. After an intense workout, they help guests replenish energy with a healthy beverage from their juice bar.
At Ethos Fitness Spa for Women, the focus isn't just on inner health, but outer health as well. The combination gym and spa sports a variety of weight-training and cardio machines, as well as workout spaces for small group-fitness classes, enabling ladies to fine-tune their form whichever way is most comfortable. Meanwhile, inside the spa, clients can soothe recently worked muscles with a therapeutic massage, correct their complexion with a facial treatment, or even highlight newly toned limbs with a UV-free airbrush tan. Staff nutritionists also bring outer and inner health together by constructing personalized food plans that can include everything from meal planning to kitchen makeovers to tips for successfully disarming the grocery store sample lady.
The trainers at Odyssey Athletic Center know that a single approach to physical fitness is as boring as it is limiting. They bear certifications and degrees from a variety of disciplines, earning the recognition of workout guilds ranging from the Aerobic & Fitness Association of America and the World Instructor Training School to the American Council of Exercise. This knowledge of different exercise systems enables them to host 60 classes per week inside their 27,000-square-foot facility. Their scheduled Pilates sessions help students nurture lean muscle without bulk, and Zumba meetings melt away calories with fun dance steps set to a Latin beat. To ensure they stay informed on emerging fitness techniques, staff members attend continuing-education classes and hold weekly question-and-answer sessions with their dumbbells.

While each class is taught in this Vinyasa tradition, the certified instructors often infuse their own unique experiences and specialties into their practice.
