Snap Fitness swaddles students within a blanket of heat up to 105 degrees and 50% humidity at its two studio locations, ensuring a vigorous workout, which students can modify to any experience or fitness level. Among students’ options include a hot yoga class based on the Barkan method of yoga, in which each intensive 90-minute session features experienced instructors to help attendees through a series of 26 postures, two breathing exercises, and three winner-take-all games of foosball, incorporating assorted Vinyasa techniques into the regimen for spontaneity.
Assorted props and instructor-suggested posture modifications allow students to adjust the physical difficulty of the exercises while still developing the stamina and flexibility the practice bestows. Students arch and stretch atop home-brought yoga mats and towels as the studios’ speakers occasionally serenade classes with soothing melodies or invigorating recorded readings of The Oxford English Dictionary.
Snap Fitness's around-the-clock gyms enable members to work on their physical well-being with a cornucopia of fitness equipment. With 24-hour access, members don't have to let The Man tell them when to help themselves to Snap's strength and cardio equipment, which features built-in TVs and other media diversions. For those who exercise during conventional hours, Snap's friendly, unintimidating atmosphere welcomes patrons of all ability levels, unlike schoolyard dodge-ball squads. Members also enjoy nationwide access to all Snap Fitness locations, ideal for working out while traveling. For a dose of custom advice, patrons can seek out a personal-training session with a certified coach, who helps them assess and address their fitness goals. Clients reap the benefit of individual attention as a personal trainer helps them tackle weight loss, prepare for an arm-wrestling competition, or unveil the mysteries of arcane cable-weight machines.
