If you’re looking for a simple, car-free way to enjoy the sights and sounds of Jacksonville’s best neighborhoods, consider E2ride Bike Tours. With locations throughout the city, including this Mandarin neighborhood outpost, the guided 12-mile tours not only offer context to the history of Jacksonville, they provide a bit of exercise and camaraderie with fellow riders. The best part about this neighborhood tour is the view; majestic oaks, magnolia trees, and orange groves line the streets, which were hotbeds of citrus growth and cotton exports in the 1800s. Nestled along the St. Johns River, Harriet Beecher Stowe wintered here and much of the history is shared on the bike tour by charming staff. The hybrid bikes used by E2ride Bike Tours blend the characteristics of both a road and more comfortable mountain bike, and tour guides dish out snacks, water and helmets to keep riders safe and energized.

An addiction. That’s what Cheryl Mullin, head trainer at Tone You Up, Inc., calls her relationship with fitness. Starting out as a dancer at the age of 5, she transitioned into cheerleading in high school and eventually track and field in college, where she fell in love with lifting, plyometrics, and circuit training. Ten years and three certifications later, Cheryl and her staff of dedicated trainers pass their passion on to others with their three pillars of training: fitness, nutrition, and overall health.

Groups sprint and lunge across Tropical or Palmetto Bay Park during intense, one-hour boot-camp classes, all while Tone You Up's trainers preach the components of a healthful diet, such as eating plenty of protein and vegetables and not using cake frosting as toothpaste. Some staffers motivate the campers through cardio and strength training in the great outdoors, and others lead in-home personal-training sessions. Each one-on-one or one-on-two session begins with a thorough body assessment and fitness test. Based on results, trainer and client discuss goals and map a total lifestyle program to help shed pounds or boost athleticism. Tone You Up also offers programs for small groups, including onsite boot camps for workers at schools and offices.

More than 6,000 square feet of climbing space at Vertical Ventures beckons climbers skyward with rigorous scrambles to the top of peaks, over boulders, and along treacherous ceiling routes. The staff routinely overhauls old configurations to reveal fresh paths, forcing climbers to exhibit physical and mental agility while bouldering, sport climbing, or top roping––a sport in which climbers ascend to a mountain's summit to lasso its goats. The gym caters to both the beginning and expert climber with challenges spanning the difficulty spectrum, as well as an array of classes on the basics of climbing, movement and technique, or rappelling.

The founders of St. Petersburg probably didn't imagine future visitors rolling down its streets on upright, self-balancing machines. Mounted on Segway HTs, visitors on All About Fun Tours can do just that, cruising along the waterfront on devices that intuitively respond to their movements or fear of jellyfish. Tour options abound, and guides deliver a tutorial on Segway basics before leading groups around the historic city.

Each of Fit Women of Orlando's four personal trainers shares her own fitness specialty, whether it’s the dance-centric workouts of Peruvian-born Noelia Heelma, or the blend of yoga and tae kwon do mastered by Tina Stoufer. They divide their classes among three categories: the cardio and core-strengthening exercises of the Power Fitness program, the Zumba and belly dancing of the Diva Fitness program, and the yoga and Pilates of the Zentastic Fitness program. The quartet of trainers extends its work beyond group instruction with lifestyle coaching and nutritional advice. At the peak of the gym's fitness pyramid sits the VIP Body Confidence program. Throughout this exclusive training regimen, the trainers hold their clients highly accountable for elevating their exercise habits, refining their diets, and skyrocketing to fame.

Laughter is nearly as important as exercise at Good Friends Fitness, where strong personal relationships serve as the backbone to fitness regimens that depend on motivation, accountability, and positivity. During each group workout, certified instructors cultivate camaraderie through shared fun and emotional support, unlike a high-school social clique or a pie fight to the death. Low-impact movements power multi-level Vinyasa yoga routines, while BodyVive sessions capitalize on functional cross training to provide more energy and strength in daily life.

In addition to teaching classes, the staff helms fitness challenges and group training programs to help patrons tackle their fitness goals. To promote safety during workouts, teachers lead form-focused intro sessions for new members and, for an additional charge, a clubhouse corrals kids where they can play in a kids-focused environment.
