Fitso’s full-service gym gets hearts pumping and muscles flexing with exercise equipment, group classes, and accommodating personal training appropriate for all experience levels. Fitso’s nationally certified instructors lead newcomers through their sneakered paces with a complimentary consultation, introducing the gym’s equipment and programs through flashbacks, voice-overs, and hyperrealistic dream sequences. Sweat flows down progressively toned limbs with an array of fitness-focused classes, available Monday–Saturday. Step to the rhythm of calorie evisceration with a dance-based Zumba class or double up on musculature metamorphoses with a Spin & Abs double threat. Along with a host of dumbbells, free weights, and cardio machines, Fitso provides members with bath and sweat towels, a locker room, and a TV-entertainment system.
The popular CrossFit program shares a philosophy of broad, inclusive workouts appropriate for vastly different experience levels and fitness goals. Employed by police and tactical units to keep quads toned and trigger fingers dexterous, CrossFit schedules different daily workouts using basic exercises such as squats, pull-ups, and box jumps to improve endurance and overall strength. Alongside the rapid-fire regiment of CrossFit, CrossFit membership regales endurance buffs with full reign over the rest of the gym and participation in any gut-busting class on the schedule.
