CEO Peter Harvey believes that a quality gym staff must demonstrate more than technical expertise. "Service doesn't only mean showing someone how to do an arm curl," he says. Certified personal trainers develop workouts that zero in on each person?s specific goals, giving clients the skills to pole-vault over impassable plateaus. By steadfastly refusing to hand out fish in favor of putting on master classes in fishing, they help clients become self-sufficient, educating them on fundamentals.

During these one-on-one sessions, and in solo workouts, guests set calories ablaze atop rows of continually updated equipment. Treadmills, recumbent bikes, and strength-training tools line the walls.

Members can also drop in for as many group classes as they can muster. Inside a separate studio, stationary cycles whir in time with galvanizing music, kickboxing strikes arc through the air, and barbells rise with each BodyPump rep. For more meditative practices, Pilates sessions and several types of yoga enhance flexibility and focus.

Golf Swing Exchange electronically disseminates professional, personalized tips and tricks to players of all skill levels through swing assessments, clinics, and memberships that provide access to its golfing resources. A player embarking on basic swing analysis first pays a visit to the outfit's golf-performance center, where he or she takes practice swings for 30 minutes while a video camera records each drive, chip, and tap-in. Within 24 hours of the session, a PGA professional takes a close look at the recording and offers his expertise via a follow-up virtual lesson, complete with specific drills to correct improper techniques, such as basketball-style dunking. After practicing the drills, the player may submit two more recordings for additional follow-up virtual lessons, ensuring that game-injuring issues heal completely.

Basic membership with Golf Swing Exchange is free, and includes access to its stats tracking, golf tips, and tee-booking system. Golfers can also upgrade for a fee to receive virtual lessons or advanced golf instruction.

Originally arising in medieval France, court tennis—otherwise known as "real tennis" (which means "royal tennis")—is the ancestor of all modern racket games. One of only 11 court-tennis locations in the United States, Prince's Court lets sportsmen and -women rediscover the classic sport of kings. In private lessons, instructors go over the niceties of the highly strategic game, covering such unusual rules as service, which must bounce off an overhang known as the penthouse. Members can also rent the asymmetric rackets until they purchase their own and take advantage of club matchmaking, pairing them against opponents of similar skill.

In a newly renovated fitness center with polished hardwood floors and expansive windows, the exercise experts at Dancing Mind welcome students of all ages and fitness levels as they combine physical practice with meditation to strengthen bodies and minds. Here, students have more than 100 weekly classes to choose from, including empowering yoga, sweat-kindling cycling classes, and body-sculpting CrossFit sessions. Yoga classes practice inside a studio equipped with special athletic flooring and heated up to 95 degrees Fahrenheit, which helps detoxify the body and keep sinews limber for safer stretching. Students of every age, background, and experience levels are sure to find a yoga class to suit them: from Power Yoga, to the cardio- and weight-infused yoga of PowerSculpt, to the deep stretching and meditation of Yin Yoga, to Little Pretzels, a yoga class designed for young children. While instructors lead inspiring classes, assistants offer supportive adjustments to help students gain a better understanding of their bodies and poses.

Meanwhile, CrossFit classes gather in their own dedicated gym to challenge one another to the practice's high-intensity, functional movements?each one universally scalable to any fitness level or ability?in order to build strong, chiseled bodies. Cycling instructors get students' hearts pumping in the center's fully equipped studio for 45-, 60-, and 75-minute classes filled with invigorating music and carefully choreographed workouts. After class, guests can cool down in brand new showers and locker rooms, or lounge with new friends by the fireplace.

MoBu Kids, an indoor playground and classroom for kids that has been voted in the past ParentsConnect Parents' Picks Best Kids' Party Place and Best Indoor Playspace. During open play, youngsters scramble atop custom-designed foam playground equipment and roll around safe gymnastics flooring like Olympic-level tumbleweeds. They also test footholds in a rock-climbing wall and zoom down the slide of a petite tree house.

A more structured blend of learning and recreation characterizes small classes led by energetic instructors. Music and movement strengthens the link between notes and motion, bolstering language or motor and social skills according to age. Art-class masterpieces spring from the colorful depictions in a storybook, and ballet encourages dancers to forge creative steps, like the stubbed toe hop. Similar themes run through summer camps and private birthday parties.

While many yoga studios claim to nurture minds as well as bodies, few have a library to back it up. Bikram Yoga Falls Church's staff indeed stand by their holistic approach to health by lending out books from a growing library as well as offering 39 classes a week. The team of certified instructors take the Bikram hot-yoga approach for these classes, which emphasize proper alignment and stillness throughout a vigorous, fixed series of 26 postures cycled through twice over the course of 90 minutes. Instructors help students stretch a wide range of muscles while increasing strength and encouraging determination and self-control with complex stretches and balances. Their yoga studios are heated to 105 degrees to deepen each stretch and detoxify the body. Instead of exercising with you or wearing masks and exercising as you, the staff circle the room, helpfully providing corrections on proper alignment and motivational words.
