If variety can spice up life in general, Inhale Exhale Studio's owner Hao Ly figures it's also a great way to keep exercising interesting. She, and her 20-plus teachers, leads a regimen of more than 50 group fitness classes held across all seven days of the week. Students might show up on Sunday and shape glutes in a barre-based fitness class or drop in on Monday to sweat during warm Vinyasa flow yoga lead by Hao herself. Other days feature similar options, as well as multiple forms of Pilates, boot camps, and even the occasional spinning class. To help fend off soreness and aches, Hao says the studio offers Thai bodywork, an assisted form of stretching with many similarities to yoga.

Amanda sits cross-legged in a sun-soaked room, still amazed that, eight years ago, a love affair with yoga rocketed her through 200 hours of training and into the ownership of her own studio. She has an updated 1,500 sq. ft. space with 14 new classes including Turbokick, Full Body Blast, and more. During Zumba sessions, instructors lead a small group of exercisers—their hips undulating and limbs snaking during body-sculpting power workouts backed by Latin-inspired music. Barre classes fuse Pilates, yoga, and ballet techniques into a total-body workout, using a ballet barre along with resistance bands and light weights.

Amanda teaches alongside a troupe of passionate instructors. They help students of all experience levels find their groove, teaching more challenging moves to advanced pupils or modifications for those still learning to move in earth’s gravity.

Though its name may conjure fantasies about sprinting down crowded streets or bench-pressing buses stalled in traffic, Urban Active Fitness grants its members abundant space in which to spread out and follow their workout proclivities. At dozens of locations across the Midwest and South, members can sculpt their bodies in whichever manner they choose—from personal training with resistance machines and free weights to group classes in cycling, Zumba, and Pilates. A number of group classes draw on the gym’s urban theme for inspiration. Urban Iron, for example, focuses on building muscles that resemble the cast-iron beams of skyscrapers, and Urban Yoga closely imitates the poses necessary to squeeze onto a subway train at rush hour.
