More than a decade ago, K9 Fit Club founder Tricia Montgomery admitted it to herself: She and her dog were both overweight. They set out to lose weight together, and after dropping more than 130 pounds, Montgomery created K9 Fit Club to share her success with others. The curriculum is focused on joint dog-and-owner workouts—the core classes include games of fetch, obstacle courses, and cardio exercises, and others cover tai chi and dancing. The success of Montgomery's program has captured the attention of The Biggest Loser producer David Broome, who will bring Montgomery's program to reality TV in 2014.

Flanked by mirrors and overseen by a charismatic fitness coach, EB30x Fitness Studio is the destination for those seeking intense, guided workouts. People here don’t train by themselves, but instead enroll in group and personal training sessions. These bands of fitness brothers and sisters usually arrive in search of EB30x's signature Xpressway workout. During quick 45-minute sessions, exercisers use their own bodies for resistance, sweating and laughing together as they rapidly spring between different positions.
