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.

Outshine Dance & Fitness's experienced instructors turn each novice student’s two left feet into jazz-hand companions with a variety of dance and fitness classes. Instead of substituting sneakers for a pair of football helmets, step smoothly after signing up for 45-minute dance classes offered on Mondays and Thursdays, including hip-hop and adult jazz/hip-hop. Zumba fitness classes elevate heart rates while guiding students through Latin-inspired hip-swiveling shimmies, and belly-dancing classes showcase talented tummies as they roll, bob, and twist. Tiny toe-tappers (3-year-olds) can dance during creative movement classes to learn the boogie basics, and fleshoskeleton benders can attend the yoga fitness session or the Limbo 101 class to boost their flexibility and finally learn how to enter homes through chimneys.
