Coaches of Renewal Body Bootcamp coaxes hard work, discipline, and buckets of sweat from fitness-seekers during her intense, full-body workouts. One of her specialties is TRX resistance training, which involves suspending students by their arms, legs, and torsos from straps and harnesses dangling from the ceiling. Exercises require participants to fight gravity and their own body weight to build muscle. Coaches sometimes combines TRX with Pilates core-strengthening work or a rigorous plyometric regimen, mixing up workout routines daily to maximize effectiveness. In addition to physical training, she supplies students with nutritional counseling that measures appropriate caloric intake by the day, creating balanced diets that supply ample energy without extra carbs, fats, or whatever compound butter is made of.

Anyone who’s followed the fate of the pigskin on a crisp autumn Saturday is familiar with Mike Barwis’s work, whether they realize it or not. As the former Director of Strength and Conditioning at the University of Michigan and West Virginia University, Barwis spent years forging iron-like athletes including playmakers such as Steve Slaton, Pat White, and Brandon Minor. Now, he splits his time, consulting for the New York Mets and overseeing operations at Barwis Methods, where he and his staff promote fitness through boot-camp classes, strength-training programs, and personal-training sessions. When bolstering the fitness of everyday exercisers, Barwis’s personal trainers draw upon their own experience with the nation’s athletic elite; between them, they have trained numerous collegiate all-Americans, Olympians, and professional athletes, including more than 225 NFL players and four Puppy Bowl participants.

Within an intimate studio characterized by exposed-brick, Tiffany-box-blue, and burnt-orange walls, Allegro Coaching stirs with a bustling schedule of more than 20 different group fitness classes per week. During warm months, coaches lead outdoor boot camp classes at parks around Grand Rapids. Certified instructors, many of whom hold degrees in exercise science and have trained MMA fighters, shepherd both exercise-uninitiated and seasoned athletes through the cardio and strength-training exercises of boot-camp sessions or muscle- and definition-building TRX-suspension-training, Pilates, or boxing classes. The studio's personal trainers also travel to local businesses, where they enlighten employees with wellness counseling and onsite coaching and offer practical tips for staying active in the office that move beyond typical exercises such as crab-walking in circles around cubicles or shadow-boxing the water cooler.

Hot yoga is—and should be—a challenge. Classes at Twisted Hot Yoga certainly are. Each takes place in a sweat-inducing studio and sometimes incorporates free weights, but the studio also brims with amenities that make each visit a pleasure. Frozen lavender-infused towels, for instance, soothe and refresh during savasana (the still, resting pose that concludes yoga sessions), and cork floors help prevent injury. Heating, humidifying, and ventilation systems are continually updated for a comfortable experience, and changing rooms give guests the privacy to swap their street clothes for traditional yoga tuxedos. And, for yoga neophytes and veterans alike, an onsite boutique proffers essentials, from mats to bags.

Like many women before her, Flirt Fitness founder Amy was hesitant to try pole fitness. But when she realized just how much fun—and how effective—pole workouts could be, she couldn’t keep the secret to herself. She became a certified instructor and opened her own studio to share it with other women.

Amy’s pole-fitness classes fuse together multiple fitness disciplines, including exotic dance, Pilates, and yoga. Students graduate through eight levels of training, learning the basics in Pole Kitten classes and eventually graduating to advanced moves, such as holding on with a single finger. Amy also teaches private and semiprivate lessons and hosts bachelorette and birthday parties in her candlelit studio.
