The trainers at both Punch Kettlebell Gym Austin locations eschew faddy, newfangled machinery. Instead, they employ fitness tools that have stood the test of time: medicine balls, ropes, logs, sandbags, and boxes. Ropes use the weight of the human body to build strength, and the relentless swing of kettlebells?both new and vintage?works the body as a whole, torching calories while letting exercisers imagine they're smashing the glass at a deli. Weights clatter beneath hanging rings and the inspirational quotes chalked on the walls, while percussive thuds echo through the studio as patrons flip truck tires or leap onto boxes.

When Jeff Hazzard was younger, he stayed in shape by playing sports year-round. But after he was done with sports, he realized that keeping fit and trim was a challenge, especially if he continued eating poorly without regular exercise. He researched ways to stay healthy, discovering his own path back to fitness, and the experience eventually led him to earn a degree in exercise science and open Jeff Hazzard Fitness. He conducts private and semiprivate personal-training sessions, nutritional coaching, and boot-camp programs small enough to offer individualized attention to participants.

When lifelong gymnast Natalie McKee first started teaching children gymnastics as a college student, it was more of a side job than a career. Her only goal was to pay her tuition. But that changed when Natalie realized that most gymnastics curriculums for kids suffered a fatal flaw. They all landed in one of two camps: either too structured, or not structured enough. Students were forced to choose one, leaving them either bored without challenges or frustrated by tasks they couldn't achieve. To solve this problem, Natalie opened Jump! Gymnastics, which strives to challenge each gymnast within his or her ability level in fun, engaging gymnastics programs for kids.

Each class, designed for children from 18 months to 12 years of age, builds upon the previous class's teachings, ensuring that gymnasts stay stimulated with new moves without feeling overwhelmed by the challenge. With the success of her gymnastics classes, Natalie also decided to foray into other children's activities, including after-school care that keeps kids active, preschool, camps, and birthday parties.

FIT Austin's trainers specialize in teaching classes on the TRX suspension system, which uses the student's own bodyweight to generate resistance. Instead of attempting to build bulky muscles, these workouts instead take a more balanced approach that helps attendees of all fitness levels strengthen their cores and limbs, increase their range of motion, and become more resistant to athletic injuries. When using one of the gym's 20 TRX stations or 11 Rip Trainer stations as part of a group class or personal-training session, students will learn how to use controlled, functional movements to engage the core and utilize muscles that are hard to target with a traditional weight training workout or a workout where all the weights have been replaced with lazy cats.

Pinot's Palette is less an art studio than it is a way for people to enjoy a libation-filled night out with friends, one that happens to include a painting project. The painting sessions evoke adults' inner artists whether they have any painting experience or not, encouraging conversation and good cheer while painting and sipping. Some locations feature a BYOB policy while others serve beer and wine from the bar. Each session features a predetermined painting—from flowers and animals to known classics such as Van Gogh's Starry Night—which each participant tackles from their own artistic angle under the guidance of an experienced instructor.
