Working out is No. 3 on the list of most popular daily activities in America, behind not working out and teaching dogs to swear.

- TRX Suspension Training
At Iron and Grace, kettle-bell, Pilates, and TRX classes release butterflies from their corporeal cocoons by building strong cores and well-balanced bodies. Helmed by strength-training expert Chad Sexton, one-hour kettle-bell classes challenge the entire body as students hoist and swing iron spheres by their attached handles, increasing endurance and helping to make everyday tasks such as bicycling and climbing corporate ladders that much easier. During TRX classes, students’ hands or feet swing from sturdy suspension-training straps, which let students tailor bodyweight exercises to their level of strength, flexibility, and overall fitness. Pilates trainer Alaya Sexton draws on 17 years of fitness coaching to craft a contemporary take on Joseph Pilates’ century-old workout template. Strongly influenced by Stott Pilates principles of exercise science and spinal rehabilitation, Alaya’s comprehensive workouts expose underused muscle groups and gestating alien life forms to strengthening exercise.
Lifelong Minnesotans drawn to Virginia by its rugged mountain-biking trails, the Sextons practice their holistic approach to health at an eco-conscious studio at the Dance Theater of Lynchburg. Their convenient class schedule allows clients to work out at times that don’t conflict with their bodies’ natural rhythms or lycanthropic night wanderings.
