Under the tutelage of ranked professional fighter Abel Perry, New Era Fight Center educates and trains would-be ringmasters regardless of schedule or skill level. Students can approach the sweet science from a practical fitness perspective through boxing classes, or learn the finer points of orchestrating a right cross through the inspirational training montages taught during evening classes. One month of membership grants full access to the gym's entire schedule of classes, including a daytime Boxing Bootcamp class targeted toward women. The bustling boxing gym also offers one-on-one training sessions for advanced and competitive fighters, and offers open-gym times throughout the day for hours of uninterrupted shouting matches with the heavy bag.
As competitive ballroom dancers and coaches of the ballroom dance team at Ohio State University, Alex Thomas and Josh Tilford believe any person can reach their dance goals in the right program. Together, they own and run Dance Tonight, whose network includes group and private instruction of myriad dance styles such as waltz, tango, foxtrot, quickstep, and swing. Lessons can help even the slowest at foot become confident in their step as they absorb basic dance knowledge, prepare for special events, or escalate to amateur ballroom competitor status. The adult instruction is also supplemented by an extensive children's program, directed by professional instructor Danielle Moor.
Sunlight streams through large windows and glints off the glossy wood floor as yoga students twist and stretch next to exposed brick walls. Other guests can undergo spa treatments or massages at the hands of capable staff members. The Christian-based health hub, which welcomes visitors of all faiths, approaches wellness from a holistic perspective that considers the health of the mind, body, and spirit together. Fitness classes keep Pilates practitioners, kickboxers, and studious punching bags busy before they relax during massages and slimming body wraps.
New Health Centers consists of more than 300 health-care practitioners across the country, each working to alleviate corporeal discomfort with natural techniques. Doctors work in conjunction with experienced practitioners to soothe aches, pains, and lawn-gnome infestations.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Angelice Alexander, the staff at the Center for Medical Weight Loss harness the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body?s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body?s natural detoxification process and complex system of water-slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time.

Q&A with the Fitness Training Profesonal
Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
Show them where they started from, show them their progress or how far they've come, and remind them the reasons they began.
Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?
Well, most people who come to our club, like to work out with no distractions. But what we do offer is nutrition consulting and suggestions. And [along] with our nutritional supplements we have...ready-to-go drinks and bars, soft goods, etc... Also, we're working on adding a reflexologist soon.
Do you run your gym according to a particular exercise philosophy?
Yes. we have been and always will be a "judgment-free zone."
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Just this: I've worked with all walks of life in fitness for over 30 years. I know this one thing to be true, for any human, high intense athlete or gardener, the body needs 1) supportive eating 2) cardio exercise and 3) resistance training for over-all heath and wellness.
