Ron DeSantis on Friday. We are proceeding with abundant caution. This includes a longer break between classes to disinfect our workout room and equipment; limiting class sizes to maintain social distancing and following other recommended protocols. We are also offering private and family fitness ....

  • Keep Exercising and Boost Your Immune System

    Keep Exercising and Boost Your Immune System

    One of your best defenses against Coronavirus is maintaining a strong immune system, and exercise plays a critical role. A 2018 study of British cyclists between 55 and 75 found that many had immune systems as strong as those of people half their age. Researchers concluded in the medical journal Aging Cell that lack of exercise, rather than simply getting older, was the biggest contributor to diminished immune system protection. So, in addition to cleaning your hands, not touching your face, avoiding large crowds and other preventative actions, keep working out. The big red slogan on the wall of our studio, "Just Don't Quit," applies now more than ever. ....

  •  Why We Are Remaining Open

    Why We Are Remaining Open

    Why we are remaining open In light of the threat from the Coronavirus and recommendations of medical experts to increase social distancing, we strongly considered temporarily closing the studio. We have decided, however, to remain open for several reasons: 1. Immune system health is vital, and exercise has a profound ability to boost immune system protection. 2. Exercise also reduces stress, lowers blood-pressure and improves sleeping, among many other benefits badly needed as we confront this public health emergency. 3. As a small studio, physical interactions are far less than at larger gyms, reducing the risk that our clients face of contracting and spreading ....

  • Meet Our First 'Just Don't Quit' Member of the Month--Carrie Shaw

    Meet Our First 'Just Don't Quit' Member of the Month--Carrie Shaw

    Last spring, shortly after her 50th birthday, Carrie Shaw was hit with a trifecta of stressful changes: She relocated from Fort Myers, started a new job and mourned the death of her father, all in a single week. Then came hurricane season, and Shaw, always a nervous eater, gobbled up the snacks she had bought for an emergency. Suddenly, she noticed her pants were tight. Then, in January, she went to the doctor for her physical, which confirmed the worst: She had gained 30 pounds and her cholesterol was on the rise, a worrying signal because her family has a history of heart disease. Shaw, who is married and has two adult children, vowed to take action. She became a monthly member at ....

    Barre All Excuses in 2020!

    Excuse proof your resolution to get in better shape this year! We've added a dozen new ways (and just as many new times) to get you on your way. You'll find variety not just between barre, yoga, TRX and circuit training, but within each type of fitness program. Our barre classes range from the more gentle, beginner-oriented Barre 1 to a core-focused barre and one that includes HIIT -- high intensity interval training. Our yoga includes the restorative, reflective Yin; Vinyasa Flow (and a HIIT variation)-- a great workout that ends with a soothing Shavasana and a chilled, lavender-infused towel. And if you want yoga with a cardio twist and more, you HAVE to try our new Buti Yoga. We're the ....
