Becca Marino fought an eating disorder for 13 years before enlisting in a six-month recovery program. During this time, mentors surrounded and supported her. Thanks to their encouragement, she broke free of the eating disorder and nourished a desire to help others do the same. Marino marched off to earn a bachelor's in health, fitness, and recreational resources, specializing in exercise science. Then, she racked up personal training certifications to start her career in fitness. But even as she went to work in gyms, wellness centers, and other fitness facilities, she felt as if she couldn't help people the way she wanted to. In 2009, she broke down the barriers that kept her from inspiring others and opened Fitness Inspiration!. She and her team promote mindsets and beliefs that facilitate external action. This positive approach to physical and mental transformation manifests itself in every workout, from personal and small-group training sessions to group classes and boot camps. Teachers also host wellness workshops and outreach events that nourish self-worth and awaken a desire for participants to treat their bodies like temples or shrines to JTT. Becca's powerful positive methodologies won her a 2012 Natural Memphis award for Best Personal Trainer, and her Best Me! boot-camp program was awarded the title of Best Natural Body Care Program.

The consortium of professional instructors at DanceSmiths Ballroom Dance Studio shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.

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. Dancing With the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 500 calories with each go-round.

Operated by the city of Germantown, the recently renovated Germantown Athletic Club has been helping regional residents stay healthy and have fun for the past 20 years. Hit the 40-meter heated indoor pool to brood over broken dreams of becoming a small-mouth bass. Or taunt the sun, which never learned to swim, by gliding through laps under its jealous gaze in the 25-meter outdoor pool. Indoor basketball courts let you practice your game in the face of all weather conditions, and an elevated indoor walking track gives your legs the exercise they need without assaulting your nose with the stench of fresh air. High-quality weight-training equipment is on-hand to work your arms and legs, a cycling room features 25 bikes for furious stationary pedaling, and group-fitness classes such as Ab Lab and Mat Pilates are available to help avoid feelings of workout isolation.

Having originated as an indoor class held at a local YMCA, River Workout has moved outdoors, inspiring fitness-minded Memphibians to literally get in touch with nature by touching plants and other things found in nature alongside the scenic riverfront. The hour-long classes are taught by personal trainer and Memphis native Stacy Chick, who will guide you through stretches, strength and agility exercises, cardiovascular training, and building core strength through the time-honored art of human origami. Fitness assessments, nutritional plans, and boot-camp-success guides are provided as well. The thrice-weekly workouts are structured to work within the fitness levels of each member of the group and offer a motivating, team-oriented environment and a disciplined boot-camp experience, as well as gorgeous views of the mighty Mississippi.
