The inspiring trainers at MetaBody lead troops of women workouteers in results-getting one-hour workouts several times weekly. The fun classes utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment ideal for both beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. MetaBody's motivational instructors will use your instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. They’ll keep your muscles guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so you’ll never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth-brushing. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early morning boot camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late evening class. In addition to the fitness classes, you will receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound-loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching.
A herd of cyclists climbs hills, zooms over flat terrain, and even jumps over unforeseen obstacles—all of which happens without anyone moving a single inch. Pure Indoor Cycling Studio and its instructors devote themselves entirely to indoor-cycling classes. The workout programs last up to 1 hour and 45 minutes each, with seven programs total. During each session, high-paced music fills the exercise studio as groups pedal towards toned hamstrings, quads, and core muscles. The cycles themselves, meanwhile, allow for easy adjustment of gears and don't require saddles, accommodating students at all fitness levels.

At Maximum Body Fitness, the owner's philosophy, "Work hard and have fun," is not taken lightly. Certified trainer MaryBeth motivates patrons of all ages and fitness levels to move their bodies in Tabata, boot camp, barre, boxing, kettlebell, and Pilates classes. During her fun-focused 60-minute sessions, students not only burn calories, but also develop friendships and a sense of accountability?in that they don't want to disappoint their comrades by not showing up for a workout. To help folks lead overall healthier lifestyles, she also helms programs that map out meal plans, meet weekly for small-group training sessions, and use a private Facebook page that offers group support and selfies of the gym.
The trainers at Fit on Demand (formerly 3rd Dimension Fitness) believe that time flies when you're having fun. That's why they structure workout sessions around having a good time, supplementing their always-changing energetic routines with doses of personal attention for participants of all fitness levels. Each group class, including Zumba, spin, and yoga, varies with each session, preventing boredom and muscles from becoming accustomed to movements, resulting in less-effective workouts. Though more intense than a traditional exercise session, boot-camp classes still infuse fun into their steps with varying techniques and classes held in parks packed with feral clowns. Boot camps are held in rain or shine, and stadium boot camps incorporate stair sprints and bleacher workouts. Further helping clients reach their fitness goals, nutrition and stress-management counselors are on hand to coach participants through lifestyle changes with meal-planning tips and an upbeat perspective. The gym’s name isn’t the only recent change. New group classes such as SpinFusion and kickboxing have been added to the schedule; new elliptical machines, treadmills, and stationary bikes now beckon exercisers; and extended hours make finding time to work out easy and convenient.
Frequented by the Orland Fire Rescue squad, Pro Sports Performance & Fitness helps guests achieve their fitness goals in a sprawling, high-ceilinged facility.

All the coaches have studied nutrition or exercise science and are athletes themselves.
The purveyors of Oasis wanted to create a space where women could work out together in a pressure-free and rewarding environment. By outfitting the health club with rowers, step mills, and ellipticals, as well as a daycare, spacious locker rooms, and an infrared sauna, they brought that space to fruition. They also stocked it with a team of fitness experts, many with degrees and certifications in the field. That crew fosters a positive attitude while leading classes such as Pilates and Zumba, or personal-training sessions that can prep members for long-distance runs away from donuts. Events such as boot camps and self-defense courses are designed specifically with women in mind, while their nutrition programs round out plans for total fitness.
