  • Crossfit-South Lamar
    With its emphasis on varied, intense workouts and personal attention, a CrossFit program demands a certain type of trainer. If anyone's up to the challenge, it's Dave Appel, named one of Austin's ten fittest people by Austin Fit, and his team, runner-up in the publications Best CrossFit Studio 2013. Together, they lead athletes of all fitness levels through a variety of classes, including CrossFit and other sessions focused on mobility, endurance, and cycling.

  • MetaBody Austin
    The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.

  • Kor 180
    The life of a Los Angeles corporate executive didn't suit Maja Kermath, so she decided to pursue a more personally fulfilling path by moving to Austin and co-founding Kor180. The fitness studio fosters a community-minded spirit that encourages members to collectively inspire, empower, and challenge one other. Trainers help by offering professional guidance while leading group classes intended to provide full-body workouts. Kermath focused her studio on two types of workouts: Pilates and indoor cycling. The studio was mentioned in Austin Monthly's Best of the City 2013 issue as a standout Pilates studio, and Kermath's unique perspective and passion earned her a spot near the top for both Best Pilates Instructor and Best Indoor Cycling Instructor 2013 in Austin Fit Magazine. During classes, Pilates-inspired exercises strengthen and lengthen muscles and pulsating music accompanies indoor-cycling workouts as ryders simulate cycling up a mountain or imagine that it's just a very reasonable hill.

  • PureRyde
    At PureRyde, you're moved not by the bike beneath you, but by the music around you. The class's soundtrack—an ever-changing playlist of PureTunes—provides energizing beats that encourage students to pedal aboard revolutionary RealRyder bikes. As riders near an imaginary turn, the bikes bank to one side, activating the muscles in their torsos. Though everyone seems to be cycling as one, the workout is actually customized to each rider. Guests alter the bike's resistance according to their experience level, and instructors remain on-hand to help beginners clip their rental cycling shoes to the pedals. During standard sessions, groups burn calories atop the bikes for 50 minutes. The studio also offers a PureRyde + Pilates program, which combines the cardio work of cycling with core-toning stretches and weight exercises.

  • Tetra Fitness
    Though they seem quite different at first glance, Tetra Fitness’s 12 group classes have a few important traits in common. All of the classes, for example, follow the lead of an elite instructor with experience in personal training and biceps strong enough to arm-wrestle Atlas to a draw. All of them also adhere to the company’s core values, which include such rock-solid maxims as “be adventurous and creative” and “do more with less.” The indoor cycling class certainly embodies these two values with its 50-minute workout that sends riders racing over hills and steep inclines on straightforward stationary bikes. The aptly named Sweaty Weights class requires students of all skill levels to “be passionate and determined” as they strengthen and tone every single muscle in their bodies. When the instructors compel their students to “embrace change,” they can reference their own Barefoot Burn cardio class as an example. This intense workout focuses on flexibility, calorie burning, stretching, balance work, toning for all the connective tissues, core strengthening, and corrective exercises for the feet.

  • 5 Fitness Training
    The founders of 5 Fitness Training named the gym after the five pillars of optimal health: strength training, cardiovascular health, nutrition, flexibility, and recovery and rest. When developing programs for athletes, the gym's personal trainers incorporate these pillars in a way that alternately builds and restores the body. They also collaborate with clients to design customized blueprints that drive toward specific goals. Programs may include boot-camp and kettlebell workouts that burn fat, as well as yoga classes that strengthen and lengthen muscles so that they can reach all the way down to toes, through the floor, and onto the ceiling fan below. To optimize muscle function and range of motion, the gym offers massage therapy.
