The team of trainers and athletes at CrossFit ?VITAS work closely with groups of exercisers, running them through the ever-changing Workout of the Day. The constant rotation of fitness regimens ensures that muscles never get so good at one particular movement that they stop developing. The intense workouts blend cardio and plyometrics to build healthy hearts and layers of lean muscle.
When it opened in 1978, The Court Club held only racquetball, squash, and handball courts. But as the fitness scene evolved, so did its facilities. Today, the club promises more than just on-court competition. It also offers group fitness classes, cardio and weight-training equipment, personal training, and rock climbing.
Spreading across five floors of the Steuben Building, Steuben Athletic Club houses a plethora of exercise machines and fitness classes to help clients achieve their ideal physiques. Initiate a personal transformation or maintain an already-sculpted silhouette with a month of full access to Steuben's fleet of treadmills, stationary bikes, and magical flying yoga mats. When taking a break from the club's immobile modes of transport, customers can bolster their biceps in the free-weight room, glide through the chlorinated waters of the swimming pool, or cultivate sweat beads in the sauna and steam rooms. Social exercisers can work alongside other fitness enthusiasts in any of the gym's classes, including body-strengthening yoga sessions and intense spinning courses, fast-paced regimens that utilize hardcore Ring Around the Rosie repetitions. Check the club's class schedule for up-to-date information.
Total Ryder in Motion transforms traditional spinning workouts by simulating the curves and swerves of real road biking. The innovative RealRyder stationary machine can move laterally, making riders feel as if they are banking on a hard turn or dodging tumbleweeds in real life. The studio's curriculum of specialized classes can help students achieve their personal fitness goals, from burning fat to strengthening the upper body. Instructors also offer iRyde classes for kids and parents, because families who sweat outside of the home are easier to clean up after.
Instructors and personal trainers certified by Mad Dogg Athletics lead a range of fitness classes in the 2,800 square feet of BodyWise Fitness Studio. The intimately sized sessions include spinning on 20 new stationary Spinner NXT bikes, Latin dance-based Zumba, and yolates, which combines yoga and pilates exercises. Students can also slice their legs through the air in cardio kickboxing or enroll in a rigorous bootcamp to slim down, build muscle, and play games of frisbee with a drill sergeant hat.
Over the years, George and Amy Corso have racked up their fair share of fitness certifications. While some of those credentials overlap—such as the ones that designate them as personal trainers—others do not. George is authorized as a strength-and-conditioning specialist; Amy holds rank as a level-three Spinning instructor. At CORSO, the duo fuses these areas of expertise into a comprehensive collection of fitness opportunities. They conduct TRX training sessions, intense cardio-circuit workouts, and rounds of indo-row—a fast-paced class that captures the elements of on-water rowing, just without all the pirates blowing past on stolen jet skis. Joining the Corsos, yoga instructor Dana Lucas helps exercisers heal with accessible and fun yoga classes.
