Namaste Yoga Studio takes its name from a traditional South Asian greeting that roughly translates to "I honor the spirit in you that also resides in me." With this simple, yet profound philosophy in mind, instructors guide students of all skill levels through a range of different Yoga styles and fitness routines, including the restorative stretching of yin yoga, the soothing breathing techniques of Vinyasa flow, and the high-energy body movement of Ashtanga. Students sweat to infectious Latin rhythms during dance-inspired Zumba classes, or learn Pilates exercises, boxing techniques, and new portmanteau words during Piloxing classes.
The studio?s in-house licensed therapist, Gayla Coughlin, relieves achy muscles and helps treat an array of chronic conditions through massage therapy. For an extra dose of relaxation, visitors can also attend mind-centering events such as sound healing concerts.
In accordance with their official motto, "For Your Health And Well Being", certified personal trainers Chris and Shelly Yakimchuk opened Yaks Fitness to help clients not only adopt a healthier lifestyle, but have fun doing it. To that end, they made sure their family-run gym has plenty of studio space for Cross Training and available functional training classes that get clients moving. Outside of fitness sessions, guests can workout with Atlantis Precision Series equipment, Kettlebells, TRX Suspension Trainers, and Bumper Plates; or take things up a notch with customized personal training sessions that focus on individual goals, such as prepping for a marathon or even a physique contest. After exercising, members can refuel at the on-site smoothie bar, lend newfound biceps a golden hue in a tanning bed, or hit the small shop stocked with sports supplements and workout clothes.
When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. MetaBody created a real-life version of that ticket with the MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.
Chris Lewis and Mike Alexander, the founders of Summerlin CrossFit, are chock full of exercise information gleaned from years in the fitness industry and owning their own fitness businesses.

The beats of salsa, reggaeton, merengue, hip-hop, and house music emanate from a top-quality sound system in The Z Spot LV’s 4,000-square-foot studio as students, guided by certified instructors, slide across the sleek wooden dance floor with high energy dance moves aimed at burning calories and building muscles. During yoga-Pilates tone class, a combination of mind and body practices are incorporated to maximize core strength, improve balance, and tone muscle. Dynamic movements using light-weights are used in each session with a combination of high intensity and low impact exercises. All levels of participants are welcome to classes.
City Athletic Club's 50,000-square-foot modern facility includes a medical weight loss clinic, workout studios, and state-of-the-art exercise equipment. A small machine that delivers data that helps dieters come up with effective weight-loss plans is also within this space. This device, dubbed the MetaCheck, captures exhaled oxygen during a simple 10-minute breath test and determines how efficiently a person is burning calories. With this metabolic information, one can make more sensible nutritional choices and play the resulting numbers in the lottery.
