Marie Christine's Dance and Fitness was founded as a way to help women 18 and older to meet their wellness and fitness goals. Our founder, Kristen Hall, is certified in the PrimaBarre and Booty Barre workout methods which will create a lean, toned, and sculpted physique.

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

Our workouts are challenging, but we strive to create and upbeat environment that is filled with plenty of encouraging words. We also pull a lot of positive focus into each class to help our clients visualize meeting their goals and creating the body they've always wanted. We provide modifications for those who feel that they are not yet ready for some of our more challenging routines. We change our workout routines weekly in order to keep our class fresh and exciting, and we also assist our clients by being available for any questions before and after class.

Do you run your gym according to a particular exercise philosophy?

We believe that the workout environment should be free of any judgment. Clients of all shapes, sizes, and fitness levels are encouraged to join our class.

What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?

A typical class lasts between 50-60 minutes in length. We begin with a warm-up, followed by several routines that sculpt the arms, legs, glutes, and abdominals. We stretch between each workout segment and utilize light hand weights, exercise bands, and medicine balls. Each workout is done using the Ballet barre or Pilates mat. At the end of each class you will have worked out from head to toe.

Reggie Rusk, former NFL player and current owner of Next Level, believes young athletes need more than just a quick first step or a strong upper body to succeed. They also need confidence. That's why he and his staff of ex-athletes preach positivity during their signature speed-and-agility training program, Speed University. For exercisers whose playing days are over, Next Level also schedules boot-camp classes complete with referees to yell at.

Inside the 1,667-square-foot, multilevel house-turned-yoga-studio, certified instructors bring their own practices and interpretations of several yoga styles to classes for students of all skill sets. During by-demand introductory courses, teachers help students design customized practices that cater to their bodies' needs. Other group classes focus on particular disciplines, such as kundalini yoga, a combination of low-impact aerobic activity and breathing exercises that burn calories and detoxify bodies; and flow yoga, which incorporates positions that increase flexibility and tone muscles. Instructors also guide students through poses during private sessions and workshops, which include occasional retreats and a forthcoming trip to India.

Along with yoga, the healing and learning center's personnel keep visitors healthy with services such as reiki, nutritional counseling, acupuncture, and astrology. More health and beauty enhancers are stocked in Yoga Lola Studios' storefront, including organic cosmetics, aromatherapy oils, and tonic herbs from Dragon Herbs, which are often used by dragons to recuperate from knight attacks.

Julie Crowell knows exactly where to take her students to get them in shape: back to school. She meets her classes at Ferguson Elementary school five days a week, and requests that each student bring their own supplies, including an exercise mat, set of dumbbells, and water. That's about all that stays the same from class to class, though. To keep bodies guessing, Julie varies the workout routine daily, making use of both paved and natural surroundings, and the occasional unsuspecting art teacher, as workout equipment.

In founding BluFlex Fitness, couples Mike and Chris and Jimmy and Kristina help clients lead healthier lives through nontraditional workouts that engage the entire body. Here, recreational gear becomes workout equipment in SurfSet classes. Patrons balance on stationary, but wobbly, surf boards, forging chiseled core muscles with every minute movement, much like a hummingbird that never sleeps. TRX training sessions pit exercisers against their own body weight as they suspend from systems of straps and pulleys, and yoga classes help guests achieve lean, stretchy physiques while also lowering stress levels. For those who prefer a more one-on-one experience, the team of instructors also lead personal-training sessions.
