With more than 25 cardio workouts and more than 30 yoga classes offered each week, Capital Fitness provides many ways to run, bike, stretch, and jumping-jack toward a fitter physique. Cardio classes include Bodystep, a step-aerobics party in which exercisers practice simple movements and sing along to popular songs, as well as Trek, a 30-minute treadmill-training workout for runners and walkers that’s followed by a 30-minute total-body workout in the fitness studio. Hip swivelers may enjoy Zumba, in which Latin dance moves get hearts pumping and muscles muscling, and bicycle buffs can practice sprinting, hill climbing, and passive-aggressive bell ringing in spin and endurance-cycling classes.
Students can try a variety of different yoga classes inside the new studio, which promotes relaxation while providing tranquil views of Lake Mendota and downtown Madison. Styles include power Vinyasa flow, alignment yoga, Forrest yoga, Hatha, Kundalini, and more. Mats are provided at the yoga studio, but students may bring their own, purchase one at the fitness center, or craft one from woolly mammoth pelts. Meanwhile, visitors can obtain a coppery glow by tanning in stand-up beds, lay-down beds, and headstand-backbend-splits beds.
Snuggly situated within one of Madison’s largest health clubs, the Capital Fitness yoga studio offers a serene reprieve from the intense muscle maintenance occurring outside the studio. Here, guests find workouts that test both body and mind, where certified instructors tweak postures according to tradition and the abilities of each practitioner. Beginners build a firm foundation for practice in classes such as gentle flow or alignment yoga, which focuses on correct positioning and ends with an optional head massage to calm the mind and erase all memories of Cats Don’t Dance. Advanced study leads stretchers to kundalini classes, which combine deeper poses with breath work and meditation, while vinyasa flow yoga turns up the heat and the pace in a heated studio that promotes deeper stretches and increased energy.
Classes often incorporate soothing extras such as calming music, aromatherapy, and moisturizing drops for third eyes. Come summer time, the building opens its roof top studio to allow students to stretch their stuff in the fresh air, surrounded by inspiring views of Madison’s scenic lakes and landmarks such as the Capitol building.
