No. We are a functional training facility and as such we value open space to move around. The leg press machine is bulky and takes up a lot of space. The leg press is in no way functional, and strength developed while using this apparatus does not have any translation to real-world movement. It is very common to find a person who can leg press hundreds of pounds and is unable to squat properly with only their body weight. We have 12 squat racks and prefer to teach our members and clients how to properly squat, lunge and deadlift for lower body development.

An extremely common misconception about yoga is that flexibility is a requirement. We’re here to tell you that yoga is not only about being flexible! Yoga is about improving strength, stability and flexibility. It’s also about quieting your mind and reducing stress. Regardless of your current ability level we have a yoga option for you!
There are a few reasons as to why practicing yoga in a hot room is beneficial. The heat increasing metabolic activity which burns more calories and increases sweating. Sweating helps to increase detoxification which can have positive impacts on both health and weight loss. The heat generated from our FAR infrared heating panels has also been shown to speed recovery through the stimulation of growth hormone production in the body. Practicing yoga in a warm room also helps to prevent injuries through increased mobility that allows your muscles to work deeper and safer within each movement and pose.
The challenge you experience in each class depends on your current ability level as well as the type of class and style of teacher. We can help guide you to the most appropriate classes based on your goals. Each posture combines flexibility, strength, and balance. No matter what your fitness level, there are always modifications, and advanced options for each movement and pose.
Merriam-Webster dictionary defines Yoga as a “system of exercises for mental and physical health”. This Hindu philosophy teaches a person to experience inner peace by controlling the body and mind. An estimated 2000 years ago, the 8 limbs of yoga were cultivated:
the yamas (restrainsts)
pratyahara (withdrawal of senses)
the yamas (restrainsts)
pratyahara (withdrawal of senses)
Today, engaging the third limb, asana, has become the more common practice. This practice encompasses physical postures that are specifically designed to purify the body and provide physical strength and stamina
Yoga is more than just physical postures. The mind-body connection is a fundamental aspect of the practice. Unlike stretching or fitness, yoga promotes the connection of the movement of the body to the mind and the rhythm of our breath.
Like anything, the more you practice, the better you will get and the benefits will be increased, but if you can only practice once a week, it’s better than nothing. 2-4 times per week is ideal, but what’s most important is finding a routine that works for your schedule.
Yoga does not require any sort of special clothing or footwear. It’s nice to bring a towel to class with you. As your practice develops you might want to buy your own yoga mat, but we do have mats and other props available for you. Be sure to hydrate before, during, and after each class.
Since the room is heated, you will want to wear something that you feel comfortable sweating in. It’s helpful to have a pair of stretchy pants, leggings, or shorts, and a t-shirt that’s not too baggy. No special footgear is required because you will be barefoot.
We recommend that you do not eat a full meal at least 2 hours before class. If you are hungry, however, we recommend a light snack like fruit or an energy bar.
