Comfort, convenience, and personal attention power Vital Performance Fitness, a 24-hour fitness studio owned by a friendly mother-daughter team. Here, calories melt and muscles ripple in a 3,000-square-foot studio equipped with fresh towels and free bottled water. Personal-training sessions teem with custom-built workouts and nutrition resources, which can help clients lose weight, build muscle tone, or enhance athletic performance. During group workouts, certified trainers guide up to three clients toward fitness goals with Power Plate machines and TRX equipment. TRX suspension straps gravity-powered bodyweight exercises that can be tailored to different levels of fitness. Power Plates’ vibrating platforms help muscles contract 25–50 times per second, the frequency at which hummingbirds sneeze. As workouts wind down, the machines shift into massage mode, congratulating muscles on a job well done. Three recommended sessions a week can serve as a substitute for a regular exercise routine or a tumble inside a dryer.
