Helmed by Ali True, the 2009 winner of Baltimore magazine’s Best Personal Trainer award, True Balance Training Studio equips exercisers of all levels with the knowledge and motivation to achieve their fitness goals. Fitness classes take place Monday–Thursday and on Saturday mornings, helping students supplement everyday activities—such as walking the dog and vacuuming the cats—with boot-camp-style group training and core-chiseling Pilates exercises. Abs ripple and biceps bulge during one-hour kettlebell classes, which involve swinging and lifting a cannonball-shaped weight with an easy-to-grip handle. Like the best geometry lectures, 55-minute Zumba classes incorporate Latin-inspired dance moves and rhythmic world music to alter shapes and shimmy away stress. Other types of workouts, such as personalized circuit training and kickboxing-yoga sessions, appear on the class lineup from time to time. Consult the schedule for the latest offerings.
True Balance Studio
Ali True has been an All-American lacrosse goalie, trained Dolph Lundgren, earned a degree in kinesiology, and received Baltimore magazine’s 2009 Best Personal Trainer award. No amount of accolades, however, can replace her passion for educating and training others to lead healthy, fitness-friendly lives. To this end, she left behind her days of celebrity-sculpting to open True Balance Studio, a facility that welcomes students of all levels of health and fame.
Neat rows of black kettlebells sit in front of mirrored walls until one-hour classes fill the gym with grunts of effort and the whistles of kettlebells about to boil over. Standard strength machines sit beside flexibility-boosting climbing frames or gymnastics-style rings suspended from the ceiling. Oscillating between the classrooms and the gym floor, Ali and her trainers coach their clients on cardio equipment, offer nutritional advice, or coax one last rep from straining muscles.
