Strive Family Fit Zone boosts human body capacities and health with an expansive 6300-square-foot gym space and variety of guided workout options. Membership purchasers may avail themselves of myriad weight-training and cardio-boosting machines, including the 3Kick, the JumpQ, and the SmartStretch, a machine that combines stretches with difficult crossword puzzles. A patented SmartCam on some machines creates adjustable variable resistance for maximum muscle-building benefit. Classic free weights enable a classic approach to strength training, and 24-hour access makes physical training an option for night owls, who need to maintain their wing and beak strength for survival purposes.
Classes at Strive Family Fit Zone focus and direct group workouts by refracting them through a central theme. The Burn combines intense cardio intervals with strength training to immolate excess weight. For recalcitrant abs and glutes, Butz & Gutz irons out defiantly wide-swinging body contours. Zen Blend offers a flexibility cocktail of yoga, Pilates, qi gong, and Northern Shaolin kung fu to limber up taut sinews and stretch ligaments for upcoming toe-touching marathons.
