It's not often that a personal trainer also has a gospel album to her name, but Lazet Michaels Boatman has had a busy—and varied—career. An NASM- and ACE-certified personal trainer, Lazet also hosts her own fitness TV show and wrote the book Workout & Worship: 8 Steps to Physical & Spiritual Health. But reading books and watching TV aren't the only ways to learn Lazet's techniques. You can also pick them up in person at The Life Center Private Fitness Facility, where she and her team lead personal-training sessions. Lazet's workouts aren't necessarily meant for bulky bodybuilders. Instead, they emphasize functional fitness, using light weights and high numbers of repetitions to help clients tone their abs, arms, and glutes.
At Yoga Shelter, you won't hear esoteric chants echoing through the halls or meditation music reverberating from rock-shaped speakers. That's because founder Eric Paskel wants to make yoga accessible for all students, whether they're searching for inner peace or a more toned bod. Hip hop, dance, soul, chill, contemporary, and classic music accompanies all classes, ranging from Yoga Rocks, which focuses on sequenced postures, to Fusion, a blend of faster- and slower-moving classes. There is no hierarchy of classes; each 60- to 75-minute session is open to all skill levels. As Paskel himself puts it on his about page, “What's different about us is that we admit we have issues, we know we have work to do—if you can relate to that, you'll love this place.”
Students file into the expansive studio at Bikram Yoga Midtown Detroit, lining up their mats amid the natural light spilling in from oversized windows and checking their form in the mirrors that line two walls. Here, they assume and hold 26 different yoga poses during each 90-minute class. Along the way, certified instructors check their form and help them stretch muscles, a feat that is made more comfortable and manageable due to the studio's temperature of 105 degrees with 40% humidity, which also promotes detoxification. Classes are held daily––from as early as 6 a.m. to as late as 7:30 p.m.––and are open to all fitness levels.
