YAS Fitness Center’s founder, Kimberly Fowler, developed the studio’s signature Yoga for Athletes class as a way to improve athletic performance and reduce sports injuries. The studio’s agile trainers coach a seven-day schedule of 60-minute sessions, striving to enhance students’ flexibility and bolster injury-prone areas with sub-dermal Ace bandages. An array of classes challenges all levels of students with modifications of varying difficulty. The classes cut out the chanting and parliamentary filibusters typical of yoga classes and focus instead on more physical aspects of the activity. By targeting the muscle groups most commonly strained by sports devotees, including knees, lower backs, shoulders, and overworked foam fingers, the classes allow active students to keep large muscle groups strong and in balance, helping to reduce chances of injury.
YAS Fitness Center
YAS Fitness Center's signature fitness class started with an annoyance: founder Kimberly Fowler's regular trek from her spin studio to her yoga studio, which took her all the way across town. At the time, she was the COO of a major corporation, but her curiosity at why someone hadn't combined the two workouts soon grew larger than her desire to maintain her cushy job. Just like that, her new career was born.
Kimberly equipped the first YAS studio—a simple acronym that stands for yoga and Spinning—with stationary bikes on one side and floor space for mats on the other, a unique design that matched Kimberly's unique attitude. She eschewed yoga's more spiritual, crunchy aspects—hence the huge letters on the studio wall that read "no granola"—in favor of effective, accessible workouts. Her philosophy resonated, and that first studio has expanded into four, with expanded schedules to boot. Beyond the signature fusion class, the studios host pure cycling sessions and Yoga for Athletes, designed to stretch muscles tight from running, basketball, or competitive clenching.
