Boise Fitness Factory’s team of personal trainers work to ensure that all clients achieve their fitness goals. When they're not working one-on-one with clients to create tailor-made workouts, they lead group classes such as TRX Fusion, Power Vinyasa, and ab and glute sessions. A nutritionist on staff helps guests adopt healthier eating habits by giving helpful tips and advice.
The “move” in Move Fitness’s name might be a shimmy, a salsa step, or a spin—instructors at this studio only teach Zumba. This latin-dance-inspired cardio workout is set to a high-energy mix of international tunes, so it often feels more like a party at the club than a workout. The calorie-torching classes convene five days a week in Eagle and Meridian.
During the 60-minute Stroller Strides outdoor class, moms and their babies tear up the trail for an hour. Participants mix stroller pushing and power walking with pit stops for resistance-band exercises that, taken together, bestow a total-body workout. Instructors provide everyone with exercise tubing and, in the event of a fussy-baby episode, will show you exercises you can do with your baby, such as the toddler-tickling squat jump or the nursery-rhyme and bicep-curl combo. Fit4Baby prenatal classes blend cardio and weight work for one hour of strength and balance training. The workouts help women at any stage of pregnancy stay fit and active while they adapt to their bodies' demands. All instructors are experienced in pre- and post-natal fitness. Indoor classes make use of sheltered venues, but apply the same principles as the outdoor sessions.
The Experience Dance & Fitness's instructor and owner Amanda Eames—a certified personal trainer and Zumba instructor—has developed rock-solid dance technique throughout her 20 years of dance training.

Kids’ dance classes foster a healthy lifestyle in little toe tappers as they learn such important techniques as leaps, shuffles, and the funky chicken.
After graduating from Los Angeles Chiropractic College, Dr. Craig Ellison brought a holistic approach to the back treatments he was licensed to perform. He uses the Activator method, a noninvasive technique that emphasizes speed instead of force during chiropractic adjustments to treat both children and adults. Aided by a battery of equipment, including an electromyography scanner, the doctor of chiropractic works to aid in recovery after injuries, accidents, and weekends spent helping Wile E. Coyote move into a new apartment. In addition to adjustments, Dr. Ellison empowers his patients with at-home corrective exercises and nutritional supplements.
