At Top Level Fitness's expansive local training studio, certified trainers propel clients of all fitness abilities toward goals such as fat loss and improved physical well being during training sessions throughout the week. The studios encourage clients to walk by monotonous exercise machines in favor of joining functional-movement workouts using unconventional tools such as kettlebells, punching bags, and suspension trainers. Drawing from a combined 15 years of experience, their personal trainers lead personal-training sessions, group-training sessions, and boot camps, while providing their students with nutritional meal plans and healthy recipes. Past clients have witnessed a 5% decrease in body fat within 30 days and a loss of three to six pounds, which is roughly equivalent to three to six goldfish if they were fed nothing but protein shakes.

Whether in the sun of the lakefront or in a family home, the staff of KbFitness Solutions, Inc helps people fit a fitness regimen into their busy lives. Instructors travel to sunny public spots, office buildings, and living rooms throughout the area to lead exercise and yoga routines that tone muscles and get bodies on a path toward wellness. Beyond exercise, the company's dieticians draft meal plans that strive for optimal health while still keeping the client’s schedule and dietary restrictions in mind. Licensed massage therapists can come to homes to do away with knots and discomfort through focused, customized strokes. While private sessions play a part of their day, instructors also foster community by hosting a number of classes at publicly accessible locations, from sandy beaches during the day to the craters of the moon at night.

Inside a 2,000-square-foot room heated between 105 and 110 degrees, people twist their bodies into the 26 poses of Bikram yoga. Bikram Yoga River North's studio space is certainly necessary: it needs to accommodate yoga students of all experience levels all at once.

Though everyone performs the poses together, instructors—who were directly trained and certified by the yoga style's founder—help participants modify the poses to their ability. Each posture works a specific part of the body, and the heat encourages flexibility and prompts sweating, which can expel toxins.

Whether before or after class, all students are welcome to use the studio's complete changing room and private shower facilities, which are part of Bikram Yoga River North's other 4,000 square feet, along with a large lobby.

Fayth Caruso has studied ballet, jazz, and tap dance, training that helped her earn a BFA in dance and led to her first choreographed piece, "In Human Form." Her fascination with the human form—its alignment, its musculature, and its ability to resist injury—also shines at Sixpax, her Pilates-centric fitness studio. The group classes center on strengthening the core strengthening and building lean muscle. Mat classes, meanwhile, rely more heavily on bodyweight exercises and props, such as Bosu balls, resistance bands, and mini trampolines ideal for raising heart rates and turning regular beans into jumping beans. As an alternative or complement to group classes, personal training sessions blend a variety of Pilates styles with client-specific modifications during one-on-one sessions.

Classes cater to gender-specific needs and accommodate clients' various fitness levels with modified exercises.

Trainers use bio-signature modulation, MRT, holistic kinesiology, EFT and metabolic typing, fascial stretch therapy, and traditional Chinese medicine to uncover clients' genetic obstacles to burning fat and gaining lean muscle. Trainers also custom mold programs to address any areas of inefficiency, and offer free assessments to help clients unlock their potential.
