Warrior Gym’s founder John Alvino’s strength-, core-, and conditioning-based workouts are designed to increase strength and decrease body fat to jump-start transforming your body. Training involves whipping battle ropes, doing handstands and chin-ups, and hefting kettlebells during routines personalized by one of the trainers who coach the sessions. These trainers create a motivating, positive environment and give plenty of personal attention as students sprint, roll, and lunge up and down the fairway of turf that runs through the middle of the gym and doubles as a mini-golf course with live human obstacles on the weekend.
Wide windows flank one wall of Inner Spirit Studio’s 2,500-square-foot facility, and floor-to-ceiling mirrors flank the other. In this airy, light-filled space, instructors lead students through hot-yoga and Pilates routines. The studio contains locker rooms for men and women, complete with private shower stalls.
The trainers at Surge Training Center believe that each body is a machine, and should be versatile enough to tackle the challenges of everyday life. They focus on a multi-directional, compound approach to fitness, and offer eight different programs to help clients achieve their desired results. Programs range from CrossFit and mixed martial arts combat training to yoga and creative movement sessions that inspire kids to be passionate about fitness and wellness through the use of dance.
In addition to the toned muscles created by their workouts, the relationships formed with each client are what the trainers at Iconic Fitness take the most pride in. The fitness experts strive to interact with clients directly, whether in personal-training sessions or group classes, to help them safely and efficiently reach their fitness goals. Beyond the workouts, Iconic Fitness's staff makes the gym-going experience as enjoyable as possible, fostering a non-intimidating atmosphere to make visits more fun and decorating the outside of their facilities with greenery and waterfalls in case members have to imagine that they're Tarzan in order to build muscle.

My Gym, which currently has more than 200 international locations, was founded more than 20 years ago as a structured place for children to safely play, acquire new skills, and romp off a sugar buzz. Tots as young as 6 weeks can take a month or two of weekly classes, all designed to incorporate the latest physiological, psychological, and meteorological research. One-hour Waddlers sessions for babies and parents introduce tots aged 14–22 months to mobility, agility, and social skills as they build block towers and participate in puppet shows. Other classes include Tiny Tykes, a class for parents and babies that focuses on movement, as well as Mighty Mites and Whiz Kids, classes for more independently mobile children aimed at mastering motor skills to build strength, balance, and agility.
For older kids, independent gym classes such as Champions and Cardionastics build self-esteem, fitness skills, and muscles for future speed-texting showdowns. My Gym's energetic instructors are experts at using music, dance, and gymnastics to develop youngsters' strength while stimulating their giggle-plexes—carving out a place for creativity and face-to-face engagement in the face of technological temptations and giant robotic faces.
