Part of yoga’s beauty lies in its adaptability. Whether performed by an experienced practitioner or a first-time student, the postures can be modified to become simpler or more complicated. For students looking for an added level of impact, another variable awaits: heat. During sessions at Bikram Yoga Lincoln, instructors lead students of any age or ability level through a series of 26 postures and two breathing exercises in rooms infused with sultry waves of super-heated air. Deep breath work awakens the body with a refreshing jolt of oxygen before muscles, ligaments, and joints shed stress and stiffness. A final series of balancing postures closes classes, as students push the limits of their concentration, patience, and prior training as a unicyclist.
Illuminated with natural light coursing in through a wall of large windows, Bikram Yoga Lincoln’s studio is lined with a sweat-proof and antimicrobial Flotex floor. Guests are invited to converse with peers either before or after sessions in a community lounge, and enjoy a refreshing cool down in spacious steam showers.
Bright flashing lights swirl in the low-lit studio as Latin-inspired music moves hips through high-energy dance moves. The Klubhouse 2's popular West Sacramento Zumba classes lead exercisers from all walks of life through easy-to-follow, calorie-torching moves demonstrated by energetic instructors 19 times a week. The fitness studio offers bountiful group fitness classes to help guests slim profiles and bolster muscles during R.I.P.P.E.D. classes. The driving force behind these sessions is an aversion to plateaus that other, less-inventive and less-varied workout regimens can engender.
He’s sculpted the physiques of bodyguards, soldiers, and professional athletes, but at Lincoln Fit1, trainer Herb Tanton works his fitness magic on the everyday exerciser. He leads the KRE cross-training class, a powerful mix of body-weight exercises designed to transform muscles. He and owner Susan Jansson also head up group fitness classes ranging from Superkids karate to Zumba to cycling.
The press certainly likes California Family Fitness, granting the exercise venue such awards as a top spot on KCRA-3's 2012 A-List and Sacramento News and Review's Best of Sacramento 2012 Award. The press, however, isn't the top priority for the gym's staff; they believe that, to quote their about CFF page, “awards don't greet you at the door.” Instead, they depend upon their dedicated staffers at the front desk, chaperones at the Kidz Club play zone, and personal trainers to make families of clients feel at home. Certified personal trainers take aspiring exercisers of all ages through regimens that make use of the 16 available locations' ample workout machinery. Seasoned instructors, meanwhile, hold group fitness classes, free with a membership, fostering community as they incinerate calories during high-energy Zumba, step aerobics, Turbo Kick, and Hip Hop Hustle. Nine of the locations boast pools that host swim lessons taught by certified water-safety instructors.
While hitting the gym, parents can drop wee ones at childcare havens lined with playgrounds and age-appropriate investment manuals. After breaking a sweat on the exercise floor, clients can also shed excess body moisture in saunas and tanning beds.
Operating under the mantra “experience the difference,” Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park rockets jumpers of any age, shape, or physical ability across 3-D trampoline courts, which were awarded a US patent for their uniqueness. Inside the air-conditioned facility, trampoline-covered walls absorb and ricochet bodies, demonstrating real-life instances of "bouncing off the walls" to both kids and puzzled ballistics students. Aerial amusement disguises calorie-burning fitness during open-jumping sessions and competitive games, such as 3-D dodge ball and Sky Zone the Sport with goals rotating 360 degrees. Bouncers renounce gravity and their fear of ceilings with trampoline shoes or while soaring toward the rim on the Sky Jam court. SkyRobics trampoline classes motivate visitors to whip into shape with calisthenics and core exercises as they joyously reach for the skies. To ensure bouncers stay safe and follow the rules, court monitors supervise the high-flying fun at all times.
