Top Shape Fitness specializes in cardio kickboxing and other full-body workouts, helping exercisers sculpt their physiques at more than 20 weekly classes. Instead of blasting students with a fire hose to invigorate and motivate them, friendly instructors spout encouraging words at 55-minute strength-training sessions and high-intensity interval workouts filled with boxing, basketball, and track drills. GT Box classes combine punches and kicks with dumbbell moves that tone arms and torsos, and Zumba workouts torch calories with Latin-inspired dance steps set to rhythmic world music. Like eating a spicy burrito or betting a pristine collection of Choose Your Own Adventure books on a poker hand, power yoga sessions’ dynamic stretches work up a sweat in a matter of minutes. Held each morning for three weeks, indoor-outdoor boot camps build stamina, strength, and endurance during a 75-minute workout packed with calisthenics, resistance training, and jumping exercises, then measure participants’ progress with fitness tests and weigh-ins. Consult the class schedule for dates and times.
The staff at Focus Fitness believes that expert guidance is key to achieving desired results from workouts. To that end, the fitness center focuses entirely on group fitness classes and personal-training sessions. The company's freakishly strong roots lie in its signature Xtreme-Fit cardio kickboxing class. In these sessions, trainers blend kickboxing movements with high-intensity calisthenics, plyometrics, and light weight training and other toning exercises. Elsewhere on the weekly schedule, shred abdominal muscles during Extreme Core classes and work the entire body in the Strictly Strength classes. Lastly, for an intense cross-functional training experience, students can test their limits in the High-Intensity Interval Training class.
