Instructors at American Fight Club Brazilian Jiu Jitsu teach judo and jiu jitsu fundamentals designed to win fights, not just look cool. Co-founders Cody Ingles and Joe Savoian bring more than 30 years' combined martial arts experience to the school, and one judo and one jiu jitsu black belt, respectively, so it's safe to say they take their work seriously. New students should expect to train hard in the 1.5-hour classes, whether they're there to join a competition team or just to have fun and get in shape. After the introductory class for beginners, classes are all-level, so that students can learn from their peers.

Wild Tiger's band of experienced yoga and fitness teachers leads a diverse collection of classes all week. The studio’s schedule of classes offers sessions suitable for most ability levels, including yin yoga, which utilizes longer-held stationary poses to target the body's connective tissues around the hips, the pelvis, and the lower spine, helping Elvis impersonators to increase range of gyration. The studio temperature dials up to a balmy 95–105 degrees during one-hour hot-yoga sweat sessions that help muscles to melt into deep, healing postures while ridding the body of harmful toxins. BodyTrim classes sculpt lean physiques with circuit-style training, focusing on a continuous rotation of exercises that build strong cores and improve cardiovascular and mental endurance, and dance-infused Zumba classes feature easy-to-follow steps set to energizing tunes to burn calories and tone lower bodies, providing a more effective and authentic Latin-flavored workout than reenacting scenes from Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights.
