Though its name may conjure fantasies about sprinting down crowded streets or bench-pressing buses stalled in traffic, Urban Active Fitness grants its members abundant space in which to spread out and follow their workout proclivities. At dozens of locations across the Midwest and South, members can sculpt their bodies in whichever manner they choose—from personal training with resistance machines and free weights to group classes in cycling, Zumba, and Pilates. A number of group classes draw on the gym’s urban theme for inspiration. Urban Iron, for example, focuses on building muscles that resemble the cast-iron beams of skyscrapers, and Urban Yoga closely imitates the poses necessary to squeeze onto a subway train at rush hour.

Juana Williams knows not only what it takes to lose weight, but also to keep it off: she lost more than 45 pounds and has maintained her newfound figure for more than six years. To share her passion for fitness with others, she opened BodybyJuana, where she and five other instructors lead boot-camp, yoga, Zumba, and Piloxing classes, as well as personal-training sessions. They also curate an extensive list of healthy recipe ideas and fitness tips on their website so that clients can maintain their routines at home or when stranded on a dessert island that has an inexplicable Wi-Fi signal.
