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.

When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. MetaBody created a real-life version of that ticket with the MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.

Q&A with Rick Zambrano, Owner

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

We have amazing instructors who were recognized in the 2014 Best of Baltimore Readers Poll as best group fitness instructors. We also have a variety of classes including fusion classes that provide a full body workout of the upper body with weights as well as core exercises. Our facility features state-of-the-art computers and a sound system that will blow you away.

Do you believe in the maxim, "No pain, no gain?? Why or why not?

Yes and No. While we believe in pushing our clients to get outside of their comfort zones, we want to do it in a safe and motivating way. We believe in building that foundation through some of our less intense classes and then working up to your fitness potential. We want to keep our clients injury-free while giving them a very challenging workout that will keep them coming back for more.

What is the biggest mistake you see people make when trying to get fit on their own?

Not understanding the proper ways to exercise and then incurring an injury. In addition, setting unrealistic fitness goals?or not setting any goals at all?could make people lose their motivation and eventually quit working out. Goal setting is so important in a proper fitness routine.

You might see "Motown" or "80s" on the schedule, but InSync Cycle Studio is not a dance venue. These events still involve plenty of legwork, though—students pedal aboard stationary bikes as invigorating music blares all the while. During these sessions, they'll surmount imaginary hills with real resistance, or zoom through long straightaways at high speeds. Some might be marathoners, and others might be first-timers. It doesn't matter to the instructor at the head of the class, who makes sure that everyone's workout is suited to their experience.

Typically, these instructors are the ones in charge of the music. Most classes aren't themed, but follow a mix of tunes that mesh with the teacher's taste. Some will even time the rhythm of their inclines and sprints to match the song, which is why "Flight of the Bumblebee" has been banned forever. Regardless of the soundtrack, each low-impact lesson helps to tone muscle and build endurance in a communal, encouraging space.
