"Our brain is designed to realize what we wish, without any minor errors," says Dahn Yoga founder Ilchi Lee. "If you want success, it will create success. If you want happiness or health, it will create them. Anything is possible, as long as negative thoughts and emotions don't interfere." To make this challenging, yet hopeful philosophy accessible to all, Lee combined the Eastern concept of chi energy with his own brain-management system, developing a distinctive program that unlocks inner peace and sweeps up brain clutter caused by the daily stress of always having to find Waldo. Warm-up yoga maneuvers awaken muscles before 30–40 minutes of breathing, stretching, core practice, and meditation—including a signature brain-wave vibration technique that aims to calibrate mental and physical energies. Cooldown exercises ease the body back into quotidian functionality before a 10-minute teatime invites socialization among participants while bolstering pinkie endurance.

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

Cheer & Dance Atlanta's two newly renovated locations feature exactly the sort of amenities an aspiring cheerleader or dancer might wish for: padded spring floors, regulation-size competition floors, and even tumble tracks into padded pits. It's no surprise then that the JayHawks Cheerleading and Dance Teams make use of all of that equipment to hone their skills between regional and national competitions and exhibitions. But don't let the professional-grade facilities and competitive training intimidate you. The five-level training program helps develop students from complete beginners to skilled acrobats without requiring them to have any previous experience in tumbling or sticking it to gravity.

The method that lends this studio its name is founded on three pillars: classic Pilates, optimal nutrition, and cardiovascular exercises. The instructors earned their certification through at least 600 hours of training each on Pilates’ various apparatus, from the reformer to the 12-pound spoon. Among them is Mike Roeser, who boasts more than seven years' experience as a personal trainer and a second career as a professional golf instructor. Mike specializes in combining fast-paced cardio with slow-motion, high-intensity muscle-burning exercises. Private and group exercise classes take the form of body-molding Pilates, heart-pumping workouts, and ballet barre sessions. The gym also functions as a health-food outlet, packed with superfoods, verve-pumping juices, and farm-fresh eggs available for preorder.
