Medford Fitness’ experienced trainers lead more than 50 group exercises classes—including Zumba, yoga, and cycling—inside a more than 36,000-square-foot workout wonderland that recently underwent significant renovations. Students can mix, match, and chemically fuse custom assortments of classes that convene in the 1,600-square-foot wood-floored group fitness room. Latin-dance-inspired Zumba sessions burn calories into roaring conflagrations of muscle toning while hips sway to salsa and samba rhythms. Piloxing classes combine boxing and Pilates techniques to strengthen and tone cores and giving pupils a competitive edge during turf wars with yoga students or fights with boxers who have not trained in Pilates.
Students can also fortify muscles with low-impact cycle sessions during spin classes. Water-interval classes further athletic-ify students by increasing their balance without added stress to joints or pressure to walk a tightrope over a gaping chasm, such as the Grand Canyon or a pothole caused by Thor dropping his hammer to check his cell phone. The 65-and-up set populates Silver Sneakers classes, which help seniors retain corporeal strength by teaching exercises from sitting positions that incorporate resistance bands and light weights.
Medford Fitness dedicates its 36,000 square feet to all things fitness. Two workout floors claim 10,000 square feet, filled with more than 50 cardio machines, 30 pieces of free-weight equipment, and two open studio spaces for functional training. The group exercise room spans 1,600 square feet of hardwood floors, where exercisers launch into sessions of Cardio Pump, Pilates, and kickboxing. Nearby, 20 bikes spin in place inside the indoor cycling room, four lanes stretch across a heated swimming pool, and service lines divvy up two racquetball courts, where patrons test their reflexes, courage, or hypotheses about being able to head-butt a racquetball.
