Elite Fitness turns an industrial-size fan on the fog of boredom and uncertainty that dumbfounders people in their pursuit of healthy living. The gym floor packs in all manners of Cybex equipment and separate studios teaching a rotating schedule of group classes, from spinning and cardio kickboxing, to belly dancing and bandercize. The front desk even loans iPods, preloaded with songs and the sweetly whispered affirmations of your high-school gym teacher, to keep patrons moving. Post-workout, guests hit the showers, and get themselves work-ready with the help of complimentary toiletries and towels before retrieving their gear from one of the free lockers.
Elite’s team of personal trainers personalizes fitness regimens with one-on-one private instruction. A Crossfit-certified trainer leads extended workshops, including programs such as cardio boot camps and P90X. To keep patrons on the nutritional straight and narrow, Elite takes part in the 5 Squares program, which eliminates the chore of counting calories by delivering healthy, gourmet meals that are rich in protein and low in carbs.
