Cardio Blast Fit Camp takes health seriously. It combines nutrition and exercise to provide clients with a manageable way to achieve their health and fitness goals. A coach starts off each new student with a body-composition and bone-density test to acquire a baseline. This information is intertwined with custom nutritional guidance and boot-camp-style workouts, creating a three-pronged approach to fitness and weight loss. Medicine balls enhance 60-minute cardio and body-weight workouts, which round out the whole-body fitness program.
The instructors at Fembody Fitness cultivate a fun, judgment-free atmosphere as they help clients forge svelte physiques during alternative fitness classes that use sensual, feminine exercises to develop confidence along with muscle tone. Seven days a week, instructors use engaging and unusual tools including ballet barres and aerial silks to develop students' stamina, incorporating graceful, feminine movements into exercises when possible. Each class culls influences from a number of fitness regimens, incorporating yoga, Pilates, or dance to create memorable workouts that leave students feeling as charged as a firefly's battery after a lightning storm.
G60fit builds a bridge between two worlds: the gym and the ocean. Their Surfset classes tone muscles with all the tools of a pro surfer, except for the waves. Students stand atop a teetering board to perform swimming motions, stretches, and bodyweight exercises, strengthening their core as they try to stay balanced and simultaneously flirt with an invisible lifeguard. There are also Surfset lessons for kids, which act as a virtual surf outing and an entertaining workout.
Aside from Surfset, G60fit offers 35-minute boot-camp classes. These center on a rotating theme, from kettlebells to kickboxing, and meet at a variety of times throughout the day to accommodate busy schedules. Though certified personal trainers and nutritionists are also on staff to develop individualized programs, the sense of community found in these classes is one of the gym's strongest motivational factors. A signature mix of teamwork and playful competition keep guests determined to complete single reps, as well as entire 60-day challenges.
Whether they're working with an MMA fighter or a grandmother, the coaches at Achieve Fitness strive to get every client in the best shape of their lives. A personalized roadmap determines their unique fitness and nutrition program, which may include semi-private coaching or group classes. In either environment, upbeat staff keep up a supportive and high-energy atmosphere, leading workouts with functional movements from deadlifting weights to scaling climbing walls. Achieve Fitness' staff also help jumpstart metabolisms through one-on-one nutritional consulting or a fat-flushing meal plan tailored to the client's body type.

The staff at Studio Fusion invites kids and adults of all skill levels to dance and get in shape in a sprawling 6,000-square-foot space with four studios, two of which have Marley sprung floors to soften dancers' landings. The team of dance instructors includes choreographers and backup dancers to the stars, as well as two former members of the Laker Girls.
The experienced crew helps pre-cheerleaders build strength and flexibility during tumbling classes, and teaches beginning and advanced ballet and hip-hop moves to kids and teens. The multidisciplinary fitness program offers just as much variety, including the ballet-based movements of Barre Fusion, Bikini Boot Camp toning sessions, and kickboxing- and tai-chi-based Turbo Kick classes.
The space has been designed with a cozy student lounge with WiFi and a gourmet coffee bar, allowing youngsters to work on homework or their investment portfolios and parents to chat. In addition to annual dance recitals, the studio hosts dance and musical-theater camps. The Broadway Kids program hones the skills children need to be a triple threat—dancing, singing, and juggling three smartphones at once.
