A small chain of moderately sized and reasonably priced gyms that evince neighborliness with understated style.. The Scene Cornflower blue padding on the equipment and matching compressed rubber floor tiles infuse these industrial environs with a soothing dash of color. As steel gray walls and exercise machines reflect in adjoining and opposingmirrors, patrons are spared the anemic black-and-white palette typical to many health clubs. That cool shift in tone is reflected in the staff as well which is friendly in a unaffectedly laidback kind of way.
The Workout Members will find industry standards like LifeCycle and FlexDeck for cardio and HammerStrength and Cybex for weight training. Similarly, classes favor tried-and-true options like yoga, Pilates, body sculpting and kickboxing. The personal trainers--who must be certified by A.C.E., A.C.S.M or the like--have no unifying approach, though core work which focuses on muscle stabilization and balance, is a common throughline.
