  • Vitality Personal Fitness Inc.
    Whether training one-on-one or leading small-group classes, the trainers at Vitality Personal Fitness Inc. give everyone individualized attention. A cap of eight students per class ensures close supervision as participants swing kettlebells, lift weights, and pull against TRX resistance bands during functional-training exercises. The practicality of these movements effectively enhances not only strength but also agility and balance—skills valued in numerous sports and physical activities. The trainers’ commitment to wellness expands beyond their clients to encompass the entire planet. Whenever possible, they ride their bikes to the eco-friendly building where they recycle, compost, and use a water-filtration system instead of plastic bottles or coal-powered drinking fountains. To encourage their clients to go green, they offer a $20 gift certificate to members who walk to the studio 10 times.

  • Aikido Framingham Aikikai
    Established: 2000 Reservations/Appointments: Recommended Staff Size: 2–10 people Average Duration of Services: 1–2 hours Pro Tip: Come watch a class, ask questions, and observe the style of Aikido and culture of our dojo. Handicap Accessible: No Parking: Parking lot Most Popular Attraction/Offering: Aikido Martial Arts Classes Recommended Age Group: All Ages Q&A with Adult Student and Teacher In Youth Program Apart from your business's main attraction, do you offer any "hidden" services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about? In additional to our regular one hour classes for kids and adults, we periodically hold seminars with multiple classes, featuring visiting instructors for adult seminars and special games and origami for the kids' seminars. Our kids are often thrilled when one of our regular one hour classes ends with an Aikido inspired versions of tag, dodge ball, and more. I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience? The only pressure you should put on yourself to learn and progress is to attend practice regularly, pay attention, and have fun. The instructors and teaching methods will take care of the rest. Aikido is a true martial art where you can continue to learn, grow, and progress for as long as you practice. Beginners practice safely along with experienced students and can join at any time. There are no competitions in Aikido, as students learn to practice cooperatively in a common pursuit of self-development. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? We are very fortunate to receive instruction from one of the most senior ranking Aikido instructors in the United States, David Halprin, 7th degree black belt. David Halprin's primary teacher, Mitsunari Kanai, was part of the last group of live-in students under the founder of Aikido, Ueshiba Morihei (or "O-Sensei" to Aikido practitioners, meaning "Great Teacher"). Since Aikido is best learned through dedicated practice and guided instruction, we consider our direct lineage to the founder of Aikido to be a strong asset in maintaining high standards and authentic techniques, true to the founders teachings.

  • Boston Body Pilates
    It was the early 1980s, and after devoting about a decade of her life to fitness, Zayna Gold felt like her body was beaten up. Over time, she began noticing that her high-intensity gym workouts were hurting her body as much as—if not more than—they were helping it. Her husband, Clark, was having the same problem. An avid weightlifter and runner, he found the physical wear and tear was starting to prevent him from maintaining his physique. Zayna recalled teaching Pilates early on in her career, and how it worked her entire body with low-impact movements. She returned to the lengthening and strengthening classes, and by 1989, she and Clark founded Boston Body Pilates. Their mat, equipment, and barre classes each call upon low-impact stretches and resistance moves that strengthen the core, elongate muscles, and promote overall muscle tone. Zayna's signature program, Brand New Body, challenges students to complete 30 Pilates or barre classes over 2–3 months; and upon completion, they may notice significant changes to their figure. The schedule also includes spinning classes, in diverse variations such as Zen Spin and Spin Bootcamp. In any class, Zayna and her large team of instructors inspire their students to establish a mind-body connection, helping them to feel both physically and mentally stronger, much like solving a crossword puzzle carved in stone.
