Designed for both kids and adults Animals MMA Yonkers caters to all ages and fitness levels. Inside the facility, trainers help their students reach individual goals, whether they're aiming to lose weight, build muscle, or develop self-defense techniques to become an MMA fighter.
Strongman competitor William Harris opened his gym to help exercisers achieve ultimate physical conditioning with an innovative approach to fitness that eschews the mirrored walls, isolated machine workouts, and pie-eating competitions of standard gyms. His cadre of personal trainers—most of whom are certified Level 1 CrossFit coaches—draws on real world athleticism: trainer Phaidra Knight was named the women's' rugby player of the decade 2000–2009, and Rob Gutierrez works as a physical trainer for the NYPD. For CrossFit sessions, certified trainers design intense, ever-changing workouts that safely push members while providing motivation and support. Classes rotate through various challenges such as calisthenics, weight lifting, kettlebells, and sprinting, relying on both intensity and variety of motion to improve comprehensive fitness. To bolster long-term health, coaches dispense nutrition tips that keep bodies fueled and give clients the tools to spur fat loss and muscle gain. The results build bodies that function in real-world tasks, such as running to catch a bus, lifting a sack of dog food, or throwing a discus and riding it to work.

Getting in shape, much like doing the backstroke through a pit of quicksand, can be a daunting task. But the health buffs at Yonkers Fitness Center provide doses of motivation and support to help their students conquer any physical challenge. They make fitness fun and attainable through yoga and Pilates, Jazzercise, and classes for kids. The yoga classes range from yoga flow, which covers yoga’s fundamentals, to Pranayama yoga, a practice that focuses on controlled breathing. Jazzercise takes a much more up-tempo approach to exercise. Its routines blend cardio, strength, and stretching exercises borrowed from dance styles, such as hip-hop and jazz, and fitness regimens, including yoga, Pilates, kickboxing, and resistance training. To boost the calorie-burning effects of the workouts, the instructors often call upon handheld weights and other strength-training tools.
A lifelong acolyte of martial arts, native New Yorker and master instructor Joe Maurantonio discovered Bujinkan in the early ‘80s and trained under America’s top practitioners. An official member of the American Shidoshi Kai organization of Bujinkan teachers and the international Bujinkan Dojo, Maurantonio learned from international masters, including school founder soke Masaaki Hatsumi.
Comprising nine schools of martial arts, the Bujinkan tradition traces its roots to the styles used by ninja and samurai in feudal Japan. Classes eschew competition and artificial rules for exercises that recreate realistic combat situations. Students study attacks and defenses in slow exercises, perfecting rolls and disabling moves with a focus on personal growth, effective self-defense, and preparation for battles with armed closet monsters.
