Housed in a studio overlooking the sparkling waters of the Merrimack River, The Yoga Tree invites students to gain a clearer, more empowering perspective through the practice of yoga. The instructors mainly lead vinyasa classes, teaching attendees to use mindful breaths as they transition between asanas and proceed through gracefully flowing sequences. But although the vinyasa style emphasizes a more dynamic workout in general, the staff members do their best to welcome and accommodate all guests, regardless of their skill or fitness level. The schedule also includes slower paced sessions focusing on gentle sequences of deep, sustained stretches intended to strengthen mind-body connections. Regardless of each class's particular focus, every teacher at The Yoga Tree strives to create a non-competitive environment where individuals can find encouraging support and complimentary bear hugs as they further their personal practice.

To help women achieve their fitness goals, the certified personal trainers at Get In Shape For Women focus on four areas: weight training, cardio training, nutrition, and accountability. In small group sessions, trainers modify exercises to suit up to four ladies' fitness levels, beginning by calibrating strength-training sessions—such as free weights, lunges, and squats—to each client's abilities while still ensuring they are challenging themselves. Then comes high-intensity cardio interval-training sessions in which trainers encourage exercisers to achieve optimal results on the treadmill or elliptical.

The trainers supplement the group workouts with nutritional planning centered around the concept of eating six small, balanced meals six days a week. They set aside the seventh day as a "free day" for a bit of indulgence, be it eating a favorite sweet or lusting openly after bacon. To hold their women accountable, trainers talk nutrition on the floor during scheduled appointments, and the ladies' progress toward reaching their goals is measured by trainers each week.

Drawing on martial-arts techniques purportedly passed down from ancient Japanese ninjas, Shinobi Martial Arts imbues its pupils with self-defense skills and spiritual tools aimed toward self-improvement. The only accredited To-Shin Do school in New Hampshire, the studio follows the teachings of legendary black belt Stephen K. Hayes, who spent time in Japan studying under ninjutsu master Masaaki Hatsumi in the 1970s. This experience inspired him to create his own school that merged the ancient with the modern, much like proving string theory with an abacus. Shinobi’s teachers tailor their instruction to each practitioner, teaching versatile physical-combat techniques and effective violence-avoidance strategies.

A ballet barre runs the length of one entire wall within the 900-square-foot studio space of Barre Fly; however, the instructors don’t teach anyone how to dance. Instead, the team of fitness professionals and personal trainers lead engaging and innovative workouts that incorporate techniques from a variety of different disciplines. The studio’s signature barre classes draw inspiration from classic dance exercises, developing long and slender muscles with sustained, ballet-influenced stretches rather than endless loops of the Running Man. For a different approach, the instructors also lead high-intensity interval training designed to help attendees challenge their limits and bolster strength.
