Jenny and Rachel spent years trying workout programs ranging from running to Tae Bo, but they couldn't find an exercise regimen they actually enjoyed. That is until Jenny stumbled across Pilates+. She was immediately hooked by the innovative workout program, which fuses Pilates, cardio, and strength training, and it wasn?t long until Rachel jumped aboard too. Today, the duo helms The Body Lab, where they and their staff of certified trainers spread the word about their favorite workout regime, which has been written up by numerous members of the press.

Each 50-minute Pilates+ class uses a machine called the Megaformer?a modern take on the traditional Pilates reformer that is designed to strengthen and tone both the upper and lower body. Performing slow, controlled movements, students move through a series of more than 50 exercises per class, exercising multiple muscle groups ?to failure? each session to produce quicker results than traditional Pilates sessions. The Body Lab also leads group classes a la carte, as well as monthly memberships and one-on-one training for clients.

Inspired by The Amazing Race, CityScape Adventures—held across the United States—entangle race participants in webs of 12 puzzles and challenges in citywide races to the finish line. Participants compete in teams of two, using their wits, teamwork, and underground network of mutant-turtle spies to complete the tasks given at the start of the race. The 12 challenges take the form of puzzles, riddles, and clues that guide treasure hunters to a specific location within the city, where each team must complete a special task using only their cleverness and muscles. Players can also use the Internet, and the winning team is usually the one that best leverages its resources. The first team to successfully complete all tasks and vault over the finish line will receive a prize and assembly line of high-fives.

The certified instructors at Bikram Yoga Mesa Riverview guide students of all ages and skill levels through 26 yoga poses and two breathing exercises inside a heated studio. In addition to providing a full-body workout, this approach encourages a deeper stretch while preventing injuries and expelling toxins. It can also encourage weight loss, relieve stress, and foster mental peace.

Bikram yoga derives its name from its creator, Bikram Choudhury, who started practicing yoga at the age of four and won the National India Yoga Championship by the time he was 13 years old. Four years later, he injured his knee during a weight-lifting accident. Physicians told him that he would never walk again, but rather than give up, he sought the help of his teacher and recovered completely within six months. Unscathed by near defeat, Bikram founded the Yoga College of India and opened schools around the world. Devoted to sharing his legacy, Bikram Yoga Mesa Riverview cranks up the heat and helps others reconnect with their inner pretzels.

When Ellen Latham developed Orangetheory Fitness, she knew she needed passionate trainers and ample equipment, but her greatest tool would be plain science. Drawing on her background as a degreed physiologist, as well as a personal trainer, TV fitness personality, and exercise columnist, she created a regimen to induce excess post-exercise oxygen consumption, or EPOC for short.

By blasting different muscle groups with intense intervals of exercise before performing fatigue-level strength training with free-weights, Latham’s system inspires the body to keep consuming calories well after the workout has ended in an effort to help muscles recover. Classes last 60-minutes, with any given interval lasting between 10- and 30-minutes. Students rotate between treadmills, suspension harnesses, free-weights, and rowing machines, which strengthen arms and cores by simulating the sensation of rowing through a river of hot glue.

Tony Pearson and TJ de Angelis don't lean on their college educations to train athletes. Instead, they draw on years of competitive athletic experience ranging from Division I football at Oklahoma State University to Division II baseball at New Mexico Highlands University. When they offer advice on dealing with a sports-related injury or disability, they know it from firsthand experience. Together, the two trainers help young athletes and their families find a balance by creating a training platform that addresses every aspect of the athlete, including the part of them that wants to fit into their high school-prom tux again.

Omnibalance's trainers mostly work to design functional exercise programs to improve exercisers’ mental and physical strength. By creating regimens that improve endurance and physical capabilities, the team of trainers can prepare their students for specific sports or provide all-around athletic training for young athletes or anyone seeking to gain a greater degree of wellness.

Heidi Lamar didn't know much about spas when she first purchased Spa Lamar. As she explained to reporters from Skin Inc., "not coming from a spa background, there were things I didn't know I couldn't do." Unhindered by industry conventions or previously fixed ideas, Heidi set about filling her 14,000-square-foot spa with innovative amenities—from a luxurious waterfall-fed pool to an onsite yoga and dance studio. She also cultivates locals instead of the typical resort crowd, banishing cacti from the decor in favor of a Caribbean-style ambiance that, as she told the Arizona Republic, caters to those who already live in Arizona and want to get away to a tropical island. Today, her media-lauded spa is the largest privately owned spa in Scottsdale and is frequented by locals, including members of the Phoenix Suns Dancers.

Before treatments that include massages, acupuncture, mani-pedis, and facials, guests garbed in fluffy complimentary robes duck into the steam room. They sample wholesome lunches and fruit plates from the tropical tea bar and relax in the sauna while waiting for a haircut or warm algae wrap. Sunbathers float around the pool on loungers, whereas others simmer in a bubbling whirlpool. Unlike many traditional spas, Spa Lamar is completely coed, making it an ideal place for couples that are on a first date or permanently trapped together inside a horse costume with a broken zipper.
