Modesto Power’s schedule teems with a vast variety of shape-up styles, providing students with plenty of opportunities to punch, kick, dance, and lift their way to fit. The 6,000-square-foot studio hosts more than 75 martial-arts classes each week, including muay thai and Brazilian jiu jitsu for children aged 4–12 and adults aged 13 and older. During each expert-led class, athletes master self-discipline and tricks for self-defense against office-place bullies or imaginary friends who resent ever being made up. Over in the studio’s spacious Power Room, one-hour training sessions with a Level 1-certified CrossFit instructor build strength, agility, and stamina with a rotating lineup of bodyweight exercises, gymnastics-inspired moves, and Olympic weightlifting drills. Zumba classes teach adults to salsa and shake to hit songs and Latin-inspired beats in the Wood Room, where an elevated riser makes it easy for students to mimic the instructor's moves, decreasing the chance that they'll accidentally mimic one of the ceiling fans' endless cardio spins instead.
By teaching martial-arts and group fitness classes, Modesto Power trains competitive athletes and clients simply seeking a healthier lifestyle. The 6,000-square-foot facility partitions classes into three separate studios. The Wood Room houses a dance floor and wall of mirrors, in front of which instructors lead Zumba classes. The Power Room, meanwhile, builds muscle mass with a collection of free weights and is known for using its occupants' energy to generate electricity for the other rooms. Finally, the Mat Room lines its walls and floor with padding and stocks rows of chain-hung heavy bags for mixed-martial-arts training comprising brazilian jujitsu, muay thai kickboxing, and submission grappling. Trainers also tailor sessions for younger guests; kid's aerobic and martial-arts classes teach dance moves, self-defense, and the distractive power of balloon animals.
