If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 500 calories with each go-round.

At Nothing but Class, seasoned instructors lead fitness-goers and dance enthusiasts alike during energy-packed group classes and hip-hop parties. A full schedule of 45- to 60-minute group sessions inspires coordinated calorie torching and synchronized sweating, with 5–10 students in each. Participants slide into traditional routines such as yoga and Pilates, or join a combination class such as Barre None, which increases stamina through a fast series of modified ballet moves centered around a folding chair and mat. The Booty Camp class tones each participant's derrière and the Pole Aerobics class employs a vertical pole and swinging moves to strengthen the body without dancing or cage-fighting.
Transformation Fitness Center gears its programs and amenities toward families, balancing out its adult services with meaningful activities for children.

Families can also step together during Tippi Toes Mommy and Me dance classes, a safer shared workout than joining a parent vs. toddler dodgeball league.
The center's advanced equipment reflects its devotion to a diverse client base. Two NBA-style basketball courts, a fully stocked Pilates studio, an indoor pool, and a Cardio Theatre accommodate guests of all fitness backgrounds. Whether they walk the track or sit back in the wellness spa, every visitor contributes to the charitable healthcare services of the gym's nonprofit head, Ministries of Jesus.
