Certified trainer, champion natural bodybuilder, and Epic Fitness Solutions owner William Dinwiddie calls his gym The Facility. That's a good name for it; it reflects William's no-frills approach fitness, a philosophy that helped him win the Oregon's Strongest Man title in 2011. At The Facility, students will find none of the distracting amenities of modern gyms, such as juice bars and flat-screen TVs. Instead, they'll find weights, floor space, and an assortment of objects to lift, jump over, and hang from. And yet, for all of The Facility's grit, William has designed his boot camps and fitness classes for people of all fitness levels, not just elite athletes. In addition to learning how to do fundamental strength-training exercises like squats and deadlifts, students receive advice about proper nutrition and supplements in order to help them maximize their results and live a more healthful life both in and out of the gym.
Participants push their bodies to peak physical condition at Willamette Valley CrossFit with challenging strength and cardio exercises customized for every body type and level of ability. Owner and head coach Travis Hughes guides his clients by drawing from an extensive background in athletics and fitness, from training in dance and Muay Thai kickboxing to his certification from the American College of Sports Medicine as a health and fitness professional.Rather than parking bodies in front of a flatscreen and treadmill, CrossFit workouts fully engage bodies and minds with high-intensity drills such as box jumps, sprints, hang cleans, and aggressive flexing. Armed with the motivation and know-how of a qualified coach and the functional movement and muscle-building exercises of a CrossFit workout, students can become stronger, leaner, and healthier all around.
After training at the feet of Mike Lee Kanarek—founder of the HaganaH self-defense program named for the military based organization—Colin and Kaz Rhoads decided to spread the gospel of their teacher’s real-world fighting system. Adapted from Israeli military training, it strips confrontations down to their key elements and then trains students to decisively act to disarm their attackers. Instructors teach students to attack an opponent’s weak points while defending themselves, and they employ repetition to build pupils' instinctive responses and take-no-prisoner tickling skills. As certified personal trainers in their own right, Colin and Kaz also integrate elements of circuit and strength training into their workouts, blending combat sessions with TRX, kettlebells, and high-impact conditioning to produce a well-rounded warrior.
To support the pursuit of a leaner physique, the certified instructors at Fitness Link look to the "three pillars of health": performance, movement, and nutrition. Group classes heighten the performance of the whole body as students jab at punching bags, dangle from Trx cords, and cycle through cardio intervals.
To address the mechanics of movement, the studio's experts examine the body as a single unit, rather than an unruly flock of bones tied together by rubber bands. They aim to correct unsustainable movement patterns to prevent injury as bodies work themselves into shape.
Fitness Link's nutrition programs bolster fitness efforts with counseling, shopping guides, and food journals; supplements from Hammer and HealthForce deliver neatly packaged nutrients from muscle to muscle.
Anytime Fitness, which boasts more than 1,800 clubs in North America, makes it easier for average folks to etch out time for exercise by doing one simple thing: staying open 24 hours a day for 365 days a year. As fitness seekers challenge themselves on cardio and Hammer Strength machines and hoist Iron Grip free weights in clean, well-stocked facilities, security monitoring ensures they’re safe and producing enough sweat to meet official government standards. Members can also ramp up their exercise regimens with the help of Anytime Fitness’s staff of personal trainers, who demonstrate moves and sling motivating tips. After workouts, guests can shower in the private restrooms or hop into one of the tanning booths available 24 hours a day.
