Elite Fitness hosts more than 35 group workouts each week, luring exercisers of all levels with fun moves and motivational instructors. Teachers bring at least five years of experience to each class, enabling them to modify exercises for new students and perform crunches while sleeping. Group-cycling participants strengthen hearts and leg muscles at 60-minute sessions, using computerized feedback from a Keiser M3 bike to tailor the workout to their specific goals. Teeming with dance hits hotter than a habanero pepper dipped in magma, Sh’Bam classes inspire participants to dance away calories for 45 minutes. BodyPump students lift and curl barbells to music, strengthening each of the major muscle groups, and BodyFlow sessions pair restorative tai-chi movements with yoga poses that cultivate focus and flexibility. With an average of 10–15 students per class, participants can gather personalized feedback from the instructor or stage a full-scale production of Brigadoon.
Fitness-centric posters speckle the walls of the newly expanded Elite Fitness studio, aiming to motivate students through workouts during more than 35 fitness classes throughout the week. Reflected in the towering mirrors, seasoned instructors captain cardio, strength-training, and flexibility sessions, including an innovative Sh'Bam class, where they'll guide students through high-intensity dance moves to the tune of popular music. Otherwise, in a private cycling room, they'll lead indoor rides on advanced M3 bicycles, which, unlike real bikes, provide computerized feedback and don't try to buck the rider every 2 miles.
At the studio's juice bar, attendants dole out healthy postworkout fruit shakes that feature ingredients such as whey protein. Meanwhile, attendants look after youngsters in an onsite babysitting center.
