Lots to offer: Lakeshore Fitness Studio expands its business

Have you ever tried Piloxing or Paddle Fit? If your answer is no, then you should stop by Lakeshore Skin Care and give it a try at their new Fitness Studio, Lakeshore Fitness Land and Water Studio. The studio was added to celebrate their third anniversary as well as better meet the needs of their busy customers.

“We are really flexible with our class schedule, we can even do private classes,” Fitness Instructor Grace Petschauer said. “We also offer later appointments in our skin care clinic on Tuesdays and Thursdays for people who work 9 to 5.”

Lakeshore Skin Care was founded by Therese Letts after working as a nurse in the esthetic industry for years. As her passion for skin care continued, Letts wanted to bring something different to Marquette. Each year Lakeshore Skin Care adds new products and services to keep up with the ever-changing industry. They currently offer massage, nail services, makeup consultations, spa treatments, laser treatments, injectables and now fitness training. Just imagine finishing your yoga work out and then getting your nails done or a massage all in the same, comfortable and relaxing space.

“We want to kind of be that one stop shop for everyone,” Director Tina Neil said. ” We want people to have that energy that makes them feel good and look good; especially with the New Year coming up.”

The studio offers Yoga classes, Piloxing, Paddle Fit and TRX Group Suspension. There are three types of yoga classes that are held five days a week and taught by a certified yoga instructor. Yoga flow is for all ages and skill levels, Yoga Express is a lunchtime yoga class meant to fit into a busy work schedule, and Yoga Fitness focuses on strength, core work, flexibility and breath awareness. This class also ends with a guided meditation.

Piloxing uniquely blends the power, speed and agility of boxing with the beautiful sculpting and flexibility of Pilates. It is a fat torching, muscle sculpting, core-centric interval workout, guaranteed to whip you into shape, while having fun.

TRX suspension training is an empowering workout that utilizes your full body weight and non-elastic straps, and these workouts are completely customizable by varying the resistance based on your position. Receive rapid, complete body workouts that provide the ideal mix of support and mobility to train strength, endurance, balance, coordination and flexibility all at once across a wide range of resistance.

Paddle Fit is an exercise program that uses Paddle Boards to enhance your workout. Both land based workouts, paddling technique and water based workouts will be utilized. Paddle Fit allows you to take your work out outdoors into Lake Superior or to one of the U.P.’s inland lakes to enjoy the natural terrain as you work out. There are Intro classes for beginners that teach safety, balance and stroke technique.

“We really let people choose where we go,” Neil said. “If people are not comfortable in Superior, we take them to Teal Lake.”

They offer a plethora of products and services such as Refirme Skin Tightening, Skin Rejuvenation, Botox, dermal fillers, microderms as well as massage, manicures, pedicures and so much more.

“We offer free consultations for skin care, ” Petschauer said. “So if someone has a specific concern or wants to try any of our products.”
