The fitness crew at Madison Athletic Club claims the midwest’s largest TRX Suspension Training program, with 14 TRX-certified instructors that lead classes for exercisers of all fitness levels. Developed by Navy SEALs to help soldiers learn to fly, TRX Suspension Training leverages body weight as the source of resistance, continually engaging the core as the body strives to maintain stability. Participants grasp sturdy straps, tethering themselves to a fixed point while hoisting their own body weight during full-body exercises that include squats, biceps curls, and rows. Exercisers work at their own comfort levels, and trainers lead classes tailored for beginners through advanced muscle architects. Along with developing a core capable of fighting off belly-button lint, workouts build strength, stamina, and flexibility, while helping to shed fat and tone muscle.

Madison Athletic Club
Madison Athletic Club ensures hot bodies. The facility cranks up internal thermostats with group exercise classes such as Zumba, total-body conditioning, and TRX suspension training held seven days a week, and through personal-training sessions. For those exercising solo, Hammer Strength fitness equipment ensures biomechanically correct movements, a 1,600-square-foot Cybex free-weight area pumps up muscles, and computerized cardiovascular fitness machines tempt exercisers with personal viewing screens and iPod connections. After the workout, gender-specific 104-degree jacuzzis, steam rooms, and saunas located within luxury locker rooms supply one last blast of toxin-evicting heat before the cooldown. Massage therapists help on this front, with modalities ranging from Swedish to trigger point to deep tissue. Before exiting back into the world, clients can stop off in tanning beds, which leave skin as bronzed and alluring as a memorial statue in a silk leisure suit.
The staff keeps all amenities clean, and its workout environment adult-friendly. Children younger than 12 can tag along and hang out in the dedicated kids' facility for $2 per day.
