You could run 150,000 miles on one of Group Interval Training's Woodway treadmills and never need to change its belt. But despite their equipment's shock-absorbing capabilities, the fitness instructors focus on short running sessions, which they call Sprint Intervals, in their signature Tread/TRX group fitness classes. They combine these treadmill workouts with an ever-changing lineup of strength and endurance exercises, which incorporate equipment such as resistance bands and medicine balls, or as giants call them, aspirin. The classes span 60 minutes, but according to Group Interval Training, the routines help students continue to burn calories long after they step out of the fitness studio.

Other fitness classes expand on the Tread/TRX program. Total Body Conditioning, for example, adds speed
 ropes, stability
 balls,
 and body‐weight-training 
exercises to the regimen
. Though the details may vary from class to class, one thing remains constant: the support of fellow exercisers and trainers, who happily supply complimentary towels and water.

By age 5, Richie Gaona had already learned trapeze and performed with his family, The Flying Gaonas. Over the next 45 years, his art would take him across the globe. During that time he soared with Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey, and as a stunt man his acrobatic skills were featured in films such as Back to the Future II and Van Helsing. Today he hopes to use those experiences, as well as his experience as trainer to Circus of the Stars, to help others defy gravity through trapeze, high wire, trampoline, and other three-ring activities. As he displayed on The Ellen Show, Richie prepares beginners with on-ground instruction before swinging them into maneuvers such as the knee-hang catch. During his flying trapeze classes, students swing on the trapeze while harnessed to safety lines, letting go to perform knee hang catches before trying to get back to the trapeze. Just as he has taught everyone from beginners to A-list celebrities, Richie helps students of all skill levels learn to fly majestically regardless of their previous experience.

Rouhi Savoji emigrated to the U.S. in 1995 for more than just a change of scenery. She wanted to share her passion for belly dancing and Persian dance, which she first discovered in a dance club in her native Tehran at age 16 and would continue to refine through a heralded dance career that included performing for the Shah of Iran and acting in plays, movies, and television shows. Her globe-spanning experience is on full display at Rouhi Dance Studio, where she and her talented troupe of dance instructors teach classes that unlock styles including salsa, hip-hop, Zumba, country-western, Argentinean tango, belly dancing, and Persian dance for kids and adults. Her studio also houses a clothing boutique, where dancers can outfit themselves with shimmery costumes and sashes that can help them stand out on the dance floor or earn a boy-scout badge for improvised semaphore.

The Dailey Method builds strength and flexibility through movements that engage entire physiques and focus on proper alignment, earning praise by publications such as InStyle magazine. Helmed by owners who trained under the eponymous founder of the method, Jill Dailey, certified instructors at the Calabasas studio lead 60-minute classes where students tighten up for bikini season or tone muscles to prep for the flexing portion of a job interview. A melding of yoga poses, core conditioning, and orthopedic exercises, the method tones muscles as instructors offer modifications to accommodate all skill levels. Moves on a ballet barre enhance balance and coordination, and floor work summons sweat with torso-tightening repetitions. Parents can drop their whippersnappers off in childcare, stash their jackets and inflatable muscle suits in lockers, and shower before heading home.

At Coolhotyoga, the instructors teach yoga classes in both hot and cool rooms, of course, but they do much more to help their clients build muscle and burn fat. They also defy science in their anti-gravity yoga series, in which guests strike yoga poses in midair in ceiling-suspended hammocks that support the body while coaxing deeper stretches. On the cardio end of things, they offer both Piloxing—a blend of Pilates and boxing—and barre boot-camp classes—which combine ballet's core-strengthening exercises with light weightlifting, such as picking up the nearest ballerina.
