$175 for an Eight-Week Fitness Challenge ($350 Value)
Starting Monday, May 13, the eight-week fitness challenge inspires participants to drop pounds and build muscle. Initial, midpoint, and final measurements monitor weight loss, which is stoked by unlimited fitness classes per week, nutritional planning and programming, and hands-on nutritional guidance. Personalized workout plans include kickboxing, yoga, Pilates, strength-training, and boot-camp classes, each scalable to individual fitness levels. When the eight weeks are up, a grand prize will be awarded to first place winners.
After stints in the corporate fitness world, Dustin Adams, Patty Failla, Simon Corzine, and Andrew Failla struck out on their own to create their dream gym: Fit Farm. The 9,500-square-foot facility houses a main workout area with turf and rubber flooring, which accommodates specialized sports training and intensive CrossFit workouts. Between that space and a group-exercise room whose Pavigym flooring boasts a 45% impact-absorption rate, certified trainers help guests avert intense joint strain while striking yoga poses and Pilates moves, or maintaining stamina throughout boot camps. Along with exercise, Fit Farm keeps patrons looking and feeling their best with lifestyle supplements stocked in the fitness shop and consultations with nutrition consultant Terry Shanahan, who dispenses dietary advice more comprehensive than, "Eat this, not that."
