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.
In 2003—less than 10 years after opening—the doctors at Sports Motion Physical Therapy realized they needed space, and lots of it. They expanded into a 4,000-square-foot facility that encompasses five private treatment rooms, a full gym, Pilates studio, and decompression room. This allows physical therapists to perform a slew of services, from chronic pain treatment to injury-prevention.
With more than 30 years of kid-entertaining experience, The Little Gym provides a safe and noncompetitive environment wherein wee ones can exercise their brains and bodies. Maturing moppets aged 4 months to 3 years glean social and cognitive skills from a parent-child program that helps developing minds learn colors and numbers and helps parents learn to take turns and share. Gymnastics allows energized preschoolers to tumble at their own pace and caters to differing ages, levels of muscle development, and hatred of vegetables. Grade-school gymnasts tackle the mat, bar, vault, and beam in classes set to their ability, not age. Dance and cheerleading classes allow the rhythmically inclined to shake and sway and the vocally enthused to yell things other than other people's Social Security numbers.

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.
