Exercise keeps the body in peak condition, which explains the marbleized ThighMaster lying next to Michelangelo’s David.

Justin VanBeek, a seasoned trainer and certified strength and conditioning coach, pushes students toward fitness zeniths in challenging Functional Training classes. Filled with personalized encouragement, tips on lifting technique, and modifications for different fitness levels, intro sessions build muscle mass safely and effectively. Bodyweight exercises such as push-ups and pull-ups bolster core muscles in the torso and back, promoting spinal health and posture more vertical than a self-assured y-axis. VanBeek incorporates gymnastics moves, power lifts, and kettlebell exercises as students progress toward intermediate classes, helping them expand their strength-training repertoire in a matter of days. Indoor and outdoor running tracks invite participants to cultivate speed and stamina, and 5,000 square feet of open studio space let them move freely whether curling dumbbells or bench-pressing their classmates. With morning, evening, and weekend class times, VanBeek Fitness squeezes exercise into even the busiest of schedules.
Though VanBeek Fitness offers discounts for police, firefighters, military, and students, today’s Groupon is still the best deal available.
