Like a delicious stir-fry, Studio Fusion's curriculum is a healthy and often spicy mix of ingredients. An overarching goal to combat boredom guides each session, and supportive instructors monitor their students with personalized guidance, whether they're showcasing a Zumba spin or one of Cardio Kick's rapid-fire jabs. Their classes range from calming mat Pilates and yoga to Cardio Fusion and Zumba Fusion—a Latin-inspired workout intensified by toning exercises and students tying their shoelaces together at the start. The staff also hosts personal-training sessions that continue to prioritize exciting routines, and instructors take their classes on the road for parties and fundraisers.
There’s a common saying in the fitness world: “Abs are made in the kitchen.” In other words, exercise alone won’t produce results. You have to eat healthy, too. At MAX Fitness, certified instructors close the gap between exercise and weight-loss goals during comprehensive 10-week challenges. By combining cardio and strength training with nutritional guidance and motivation, the MAX Fitness team can help participants torch calories, burn fat, and achieve their individual health, fitness, and aesthetic goals.

In addition to leading dance-focused classes, the instructors set pupils' hearts pumping during fitness-based classes that include cardio kickboxing, TRX suspension training, and yoga. High-octane boot camps prepare bodies for the beach, and tummy-centered Pilates workouts help patrons build solid core muscles to deflect any flailing limbs on the dance floor.

A team of certified trainers led by former tennis pro Kevin Hawke help exercisers whip their bodies into shape or simply improve conditioning in personal or group sessions. Workouts take place within an 8,600-square-foot training facility with a 2,000-square-foot gym and a full tennis court.
After two pregnancies, Debbie Zboray was struggling with her weight. Finally, she decided she needed to make a change. Even though she was working full-time on top of raising her two young girls, she managed to drop 45 pounds. She felt fit and healthy—and she realized she wanted to help other people do the same, so she became a personal trainer. Today, through 4 Elements Personal Training, she harnesses the power of the Russian kettlebell: a cast-iron weight with a U-shaped handle that both stabilizes and moves muscles as her students swing it during her 45-minute boot camps.
The Kaiser Fit Club's staff doesn't have time to work out complicated contracts or membership schemes—they're too busy helping their clients get fit through dynamic, effective exercise classes. Staffers welcome patrons of all fitness levels to challenge their bodies, modifying movements to match their abilities or to target their personal goals. Their specialties include TRX suspension training, in which students battle their body weight while dangling from resistance bands, and yoga classes that bridge poses with Vinyasa flow. The yoga for kids classes engage wee ones with games, energy-releasing activities, and basic stretching, helping them to build self-esteem, boost concentration powers, and develop empathy for bendy straws. During fun and constantly varied boot-camp classes, the instructors alternate strength training and aerobic exercises as students complete circuits of jumping ropes, hefting free weights, and punching invisible tickle monsters.
