Five Points Fitness
The two personal trainers who run Five Points Fitness named their 17,000-square-foot facility after what they consider to be the five keys to fitness: strength, endurance, flexibility, stability, and nutrition. To help members achieve those essentials, they stock their gym with strength-training equipment and cardio machines, each of which are equipped with their own monitors. In addition to personal training, the staff leads group training sessions limited to two to five students, ensuring each one receives a dose of individual attention. Members also have access to group classes including yoga, TRX, and Zumba—a high-energy dance workout that fuses Latin-inspired moves with club-worthy beats. The staff’s certified nutritionist helps members stick to healthy dietary plans by encouraging them to eat fewer butter sculptures, and onsite childcare Monday–Saturday mornings makes it easier for parents to hit the gym.
