  • Pole Control Studios
    Floor-to-ceiling mirrors reflect 2,700 square feet of glossy, hardwood floors ringing with the staccato of dancing high heels. Brass poles sprout from the floor, supporting whirling women as they learn sensual routines and build upper-body strength by suspending themselves skyward. Pole Control Studios' owner, a seasoned performer with a BA in sports science, designs programs that scale up in difficulty while centering around fitness. The studio inducts exercisers in the flirtatious art with an introductory class, where each dancer learns correct posture, transition work, and how to use high heels to tap out Morse code. From there, guests foray into several Pole and Aerial Arts classes of empowering fitness classes that build on the basics, imparting techniques for climbing, controlled spins, or inversions. They also offer several fitness classes to build the muscles needed to strengthen to excel on the Pole, Pole Fit and Sensual Stretch supplement pole-dancing prowess with intense cardio, squats, lunges, and body-elongating posework.

  • Bikram Yoga Downtown Hartford
    A former cubicle dweller, studio director Natasha Roggi knew she needed something that could rejuvenate her tired mind and stiff limbs. Though she emerged from her first Bikram class feeling sweaty and somewhat shell shocked, she began to feel her body grow stronger and her mind become sharper with each subsequent class. Before long, she found herself headed to Palm Desert, California to become certified through Bikram Choudhury's nine-week program and forge a new, healthier path through life. Today, she shares her downtown studio with a staff of other instructors, all of whom stretched and persevered through Bikram's rigorous teacher-training process. While the classroom's stifling temperatures may sound too intense for some students, the practice caters to guests of all experience levels, as the heat helps even the stiffest muscles and arthritic snowmen melt into the deep, detoxifying stretches. To keep things comfortable, Natasha and her staff have bottled water and electrolyte drinks available for sale, and have equipped the studio with spa-like changing rooms, complete with men's and women's showers and comfortable beauty vanities.

  • Racquels Addiction Fitness
    The air was chilly and the sky was still dark one wintry morning in Hartford, when five women huddled around Racquel, awaiting instruction at the very first Racquels Addiction Fitness boot camp. But as hard as that first workout may have been, it obviously inspired something positive in the women who attended. From that day forward, word spread about the workout that group fitness instructor Racquel had put together—a powerful routine that targeted problem areas such as the hips, thighs, glutes, and abs and quickly transformed them with little to no help from cumbersome workout equipment. Today, Racquel and fellow fitness instructor Betsy have branched out from just boot camp. At Racquel's Addiction Fitness, they also teach Piloxing (a blend of Pilates and boxing), Zumba, and Hot and Bothered on the Bench classes, which blast calories with help from a step bench and weights. And, in their quest to make fitness fun for everyone, the studio also hosts many exercise-themed special events, including chair dance fitness parties, pole dancing parties, and sultry potato sack races.
