CrossFit Julia’s husband-and-wife team takes a personal approach to fitness. Rather than set their clients loose in a jungle of workout machinery, they structure their daily CrossFit workouts around functional strength and cardio exercises in a supportive group setting. The classes themselves constantly vary; one day’s deadlifts and pushups are another day’s sprints and burpees. Success is determined not by any uniform standard, but by each student’s ability to meet or exceed his or her own fitness expectations. Just as CrossFit differs from normal workouts, CrossFit Julia’s facility differs from a normal gym. Ropes hang from the ceiling, and the rows of cardio machines found in typical gyms have been replaced with heavy tires lifted from cars illegally parked outside.

Pilates Central offers three levels of mat classes to accommodate physical-activity activists of all shapes and skill sets. Dedicated, professional instructors introduce novices to the basic principles of Pilates in beginner mat classes, helping them establish proper breathing, alignment, and pose-sequencing techniques. Intermediate classes translate the movements into complete, fluid workouts, whereas advanced classes up the fluid ante even further with expert-level exercises that produce sizable sweat puddles. Regardless of current fitness level, all students' workouts are custom-fit to their body, as mat classes trade cumbersome gym gadgetry for body-weight resistance exercises and shrink wrap.
