The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 5 or 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights.

There's even a junior Jazzercise and Jazzercise team dance at some locations, which let you work out with your kids and teenagers. As for the ittie-ditties, childcare is available during select times at many locations.
At Energy Yoga, seasoned stretchers guide yogis of all experience levels through a brimming class schedule of nine different types of yoga. With an overarching goal of improved core strength and flexibility, each class features a cavalcade of poses and exercises designed to steer students toward a fitter physique, greater flexibility, and TK JOKE. Beginner's sessions–which take place outside, underneath the stars–employ gentle movements, aiming to connect mind and body without having to install HDMI cables at the base of the spine and neck. Sessions of gentle Hatha cater to greenhorns with level 1 maneuvers, while power Vinyasa volunteers a more challenging workout through cardio-driven exercises.
With its shades open, Revo Entertainment Center looks like a typical indoor field. With its shades drawn, though, its true colors show. Its true glow-in-the-dark colors, to be exact.
The fun center's 3D murals give off an ethereal light that alludes to the spot's specialty: glow-in-the-dark games, that come to life with the help of 3D glasses. During Glow Soccer, youngsters play a game similar to traditional soccer, except in the dark, the field lit by each team's glow shirts and the ball itself. LazerBall, on the other hand, fuses paintball and laser tag into a single, cosmically-themed sport in which players shoot soft pellets and laser light at each other in a battle over the fictional Planet Revo. Though similar to paintball pellets, the LazerBalls do not explode upon impact and won't stain clothes or ruin any priceless artworks used as shields. For littler laser warriors, the center also offers an age-appropriate version of the game known as Lazerball Soft, which uses extra soft spongy balls that are gentle on tiny torsos and limbs.
Growing up in India, Aditya "Adi" Gir was exposed to yoga at a young age, but he quickly found that life kept him too busy to practice it. After he moved to South Florida to pursue a career in computer science, he went through a year and a half of tough health issues and only recovered after doing pranayama?yogic breathing exercises. He was so impressed with the results that he decided to become a yoga instructor and went off to study in Mumbai.
Now, Adi leads beginners and advanced yogis alike during laid-back classes at Pranoga Yoga Studio in Doral. Adi and his fellow flexible instructors try to make their studio a welcoming, non-intimidating place where students can practice Hatha and Vinyasa poses without feeling judged if they can't lick their elbows. The instructors also conduct workshops in addition to their regularly scheduled classes.
