Amid glowing wall sconces and goldenrod walls, visitors achieve deeper stretches and flush out toxins in hot-yoga lessons, or balance their breathing in Hatha sessions.

Israeli Air Force first sergeant, NYU grad and wrestler, and third-degree judo black belt are just a few of the titles that Alex Chianurashvili has held over the years. Though at Tribe MMA, he's known most commonly as the head instructor.

Though the Fitness Factory’s classes, weight-loss center, and personal trainers embody the efficiency that the gym’s name suggests, its commitment to personalizing the gym-going experience diverges from the idea of a factory. Each of the three upscale locations—outfitted with unique amenities—is designed specifically for different types of exercisers. In Palisades Park, the building’s three floors embody various disciplines: the first floor teaches endurance, the second floor's concentration is sports performance, and the third floor focuses on strength training. The Rockaway spot blends exercise and entertainment with a cinema room that projects the latest blockbusters on a true silver screen as members hit the treadmills. Edgewater builds communities and core strength with Pilates reformer classes, hot-yoga studios, and rooftop yoga sessions where guests can salute the sun and shame lazy clouds. No matter the location, each gym pampers members with saunas, babysitting services in a toy-filled playroom, and a smoothie bar stocked with healthy postworkout snacks designed to help build muscle.
The dynamic instructors at each of the six centers teach a holistic approach to yoga and noncombative martial arts that targets flexibility, strength, breathing, and energy sensitivity. Schedules vary from studio to studio, with regular open-level classes such as those at BR Holistic Healing integrating a core regimen of stretching, breathing, and strengthening postures that improve keg-stand techniques tremendously. Vibration sessions at the Body & Brain Center in Metuchen and Dahn Yoga in Closter and Oradell can release stagnant energy and recharge bodies to take on exhausting second jobs impersonating the Energizer bunny at birthday parties. Instructors monitor students' progress, suggesting home-workout plans tailored to personal strengths and vulnerability to fire.
