A joint venture between a professional boxer and a team of successful kickboxing-equipment tycoons, Title Boxing Club maintains a network of dozens of studios spread across more than 20 states, winning over a devoted clientele with its invigorating and engaging boxing- and kickboxing-themed classes. Each workout uses the heart-healthy exercise of cardio training to satisfy people?s innate desire to punch and kick something other than a broken jukebox. Participants build lithe, strong muscle tissue by delivering powerful blows to punching bags, and build flexibility and agility by practicing roundhouse kicks and hooks. Students can build their core strength and endurance with medicine balls and burpees, enlist a qualified personal trainer to practice their newfound skills in the ring, or just torch calories during intense full-body Power Hour workouts.
Huntington Yoga & Wellness Studio offers a diverse mix of classes so that the studio can maintain an open-door policy welcoming students of all levels in its classes. There is a beginners class, of course, but new students can also try their hand at Vinyasa, an energetic sequence of sun salutations and backbends, or Kundalini, a more relaxing blend of breathing exercises and meditation. Yoga is just a part of Huntington’s approach, though. Owner Janice Grote has spent more than 30 years supplementing her yogic journey with other holistic practices, and so the also offers reiki, massage, and plant-based nutritional counseling.
Yoga and wellness go hand-in-hand, but The Funky Om takes that notion even further. Part yoga studio, part wellness center, The Funky Om hosts a variety of yoga classes throughout the week while also offering acupuncture, massage therapy, and herbal remedies.

New York Sports Clubs, part of Town Sports International's network of fitness loci, opens up a number of equipment-stocked facilities across New York to exercisers. Strength-training gear, such as circuit machines, free weights, and medicine balls, molds muscles into chiseled depictions of physical might. Sessions on cardio machines, ranging from treadmills and ellipticals to upright and recumbent stationary bicycles, inspire burnt calories to pack up and move to cooler climates. Each club offers a schedule of group classes that draws from more than 100 fitness styles, including Pilates, yoga, and boxing, ensuring that no member has to jazzercise without a spotter. Each location rewards exercisers for sweating in its vicinity with special features such as babysitting, saunas, and steam rooms.
Within Sole Pilates & Yoga?s beet-red walls, instructors lead small groups of students through rigorous postures on Pilates reformer machines. With just five machines in their studio, the instructors can ensure that each student benefits from personal adjustments and individual attention. The machines' pulleys, bars, and sliding carriages add extra resistance to traditional Pilates postures, testing students' strength against their own body weight to develop lean, toned muscles. In addition to the Pilates reformer, the instructors lead mat Pilates classes to carve strong core muscles, and yoga sessions that flow through strength- and relaxation-inducing poses, resulting in enough flexibility and body control to squeeze into a milk carton.
