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 Booty Barre?which combine ballet's core-strengthening exercises with light weightlifting, such as picking up the nearest ballerina.

This allows physical therapists to perform a slew of services, from chronic pain treatment to injury-prevention.

In 1976, educator, musician, and kinesiologist Robin Wes longed for a children's gym that prioritized personal growth over competition. Unveiled at a time when physical-education classes pushed students to focus almost exclusively on winning, Robin's program was swiftly adopted and is now used in more than 300 Little Gyms worldwide. Robin still pens original music to accompany lessons, which engage whippersnappers 4 months old?12 years old with gymnastics, dance, karate, and parent and child activities.
Each of The Little Gym's classes introduces simple movements that sharpen motor skills and set brains whirring, allowing kids to progress at their own pace until they can finally build a computer out of macaroni and glitter. Staff members strive to build a base for lifelong social skills and self-assurance with each exercise, including activities rooted purely in fun, such as summer camps or birthday parties, which helped The Little Gym to earn title of #1 Birthday Chain in Parents magazine.
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.
