Schulein Fit Enterprises' boutique fitness centers keep bodies toned through innovative classes taught by savvy, experienced instructors. Shimmy through women-only Zumba classes at the Athletic Club for Women, which fuse fitness with Latin-inspired dances such as salsa, tango, flamenco, and the Cicero. Rippling abdominals and self-aware biceps begin with BodyRoXX classes at Back Bay Fitness, blending the core methods of spinning, cross training, Pilates, and treadmill trekking to render bodies as chiseled as an ice sculpture of Mount Rushmore. Laguna Health Club offers classes such as beach boot camp, which guides participants through rigorous military-style fitness routines in an environment that promotes both communal support and sandcastle construction.
Engine Room Fitness chars calories with a semiweekly schedule of Indo-Row classes helmed by two former members of the U.S. Olympic rowing team. One-hour, low-impact rowing sessions smolder up to 600 calories and rouse stagnating muscles with coached repetitions that fortify legs and arms, abdominals, and the muscle in the back that controls the stock market. The classes foster solidarity among members with team, partner, and full-group workouts led by encouraging and helpful instructors. The Indo-Row machine's patented flywheel tank emulates the salty sound of crashing waves, while built-in monitors help stationary scullers measure progression by displaying rowing speed, total distance, calories burned, and nearby ports.
