With his forays into acting and politics, many people forget that Arnold Schwarzenegger was once a professional body builder and former Mr. Universe. Arnold Kolozsvari didn't forget—it was Schwarzenegger's superhero-like physique that influenced him to join the world of fitness training in the first place. Born in Hungary, Kolozsvari competed in the body-building sphere in Romania, armed with nothing but the diligence, drive, and metallic Skynet endoskeleton he borrowed from his idol Schwarzenegger. Fueled by a desire to train others, he eventually made his way to the United States, where he teamed up with the Revive’s other half, Danny Legault, a 13-year hockey veteran who devoted seven years of service to the United States Marine Corps. The duo joined forces and opened up their own fitness center, where they’ve since trained a client base that includes the Bethune-Cookman University baseball team and numerous Miss Florida and Miss America pageant contestants.
Kolozsvari and Legault happily adapt the functional movements in their boot camps and group cardio classes to suit students of any skill level, age, or physical ability, welcoming anyone ranging from teen athletes to senior citizens. To offer a rounded approach to physical fitness and overall well-being, they can also supplement group workouts with nutritional plans and one-on-one personal-training sessions.
At Transformational Yoga Studio, compassionate instructors—led by multicertified yoga teacher Nirinjan Kaur—strive to balance the bodies and minds of individuals seeking renewal. Skill-level-specific yoga classes introduce beginners to postures and breathing techniques, and Kundalini yoga focuses on mending the body by stimulating the nervous and immune systems, leaving arms flexible enough to fully embrace a sequoia. The center promotes healing and overall well-being with relaxing massages and sound-healing sessions using a gong that has been precisely tuned and blessed by Drepung Loseling monks. The caring crew also coordinates charitable service projects that aid the community's less fortunate. The studio's bright-yellow walls and shiny wood floors reflect the abundance of natural light spilling in from the windows, creating an ambiance that promotes peacefulness and the cultivation of Chia pets.
The instructors at Hot House Yoga, founded in 2006 by Shelly Kwiatkouski aka Uma Dasai, have a refreshing way of delivering fresh blood to the heart: headstands. During inverted urban flow classes—targeted to seasoned yogis—instructors teach their pupils how to fluidly flip upwards, relying on balance rather than brute strength to keep legs in the air. The studio has been voted as the readers' choice for best yoga studio many times—including 2012—in The Daytona Beach News–Journal. Instructors focuses on creating spiritual awareness and a spirit of social activism. They also offer classes that take place in a hot classroom to spur detoxification in addition to yoga’s traditional benefits, which include stress release, weight management, improved circulation and sleep, and a boost in bodily energy.
Hot House Yoga not only functions as a yoga studio, but also as a training school for future yoga instructors, with classes that include both 200 and 500 hour training regimens.
Registered at the 200-hour and 500-hour level, yoga instructor and studio owner Karen Cutrona-Underwood leverages abundant experience when leading the staff in helping others find peace and power through heated, Vinyasa-based yoga classes. She raises the temperature of her 3,600-square-foot facility to a detoxifying 95 degrees through an infrared-radiant-heat system balanced with an ionic fresh-air exchange to keep the air as hot and fresh as the royal family of Bel Air. Karen also outfits her studio with anti-microbial Z-mat flooring to support joints as students flow through sequences of strengthening twists, binds, and balances. Blue Moon's certified instructors modify these sequences to help accommodate practitioners of all abilities. When the team isn't guiding yogis through exercises, they can be found supporting local nonprofits through efforts such as canned-food drives.
