At Eastside Kickboxing's gym, a group of students perform hip-twisting kicks, connecting hard with 6-foot Thai-style heavy bags before pummeling them with quick jabs. For 60?75 minutes, they perform intense cardio-kickboxing combinations. Eastside's team of instructors lead this combination, helping clients slim down, boost stamina and energy, and sculpt all muscle groups. To keep things interesting, trainers also may infuse routines with weightlifting and unique cardio exercises, both designed to further goals of losing weight or intensify workouts.

Honest Movement Pilates, a Stott Pilates training center, improves the body movement, posture and breathing of all fitness levels with one-on-one teaching techniques and high-quality Pilates equipment.

Using floor mats, chairs, reformers, and ladder barrels, clients tone muscles through a contemporary, tailored full-body workout. Large windows and an abundance of natural light energize Pilates students and encourage impromptu shadow-puppet duels.
Terra Yoga’s skilled instructors welcome and embrace yoga students of all levels with open arms, and not just because they’re in the middle of an open-armed pose. Thanks to their small class sizes, Terra Yoga’s teachers can heap more personal attention on participants and render specific guidance on poses. This means that the friendly instructors are able to sequence their classes to make them accessible, unlike a vault or a Chevy with padlocks on each door. To accomplish this accessibility, each instructor ensures students are in the correct asanas (poses) throughout the class. The 12 teachers, who have diverse backgrounds and decades of combined experience, also turn up the heat when they lead yoga sessions. With the exception of prenatal, yin, and family yoga, all classes take place in a heated studio environment. Terra Yoga is also one of the few studios that offer Pranassage, a relaxing one-on-one form of therapy that combines elements of yoga with bodywork.
Length, grace, and a healthy body. These are the focuses of barre3 founder Sadie Lincoln. To achieve these results collectively, however, Sadie knew she needed to come up with a completely new routine. Working with yogis, professional dancers, doctors, and athletes, she created the barre3 system. It's a three-step sequence that consists of isometric holds, low-impact movements, and recovery stretching. This combination strengthens cores and aligns postures while sculpting long, lean muscles and burning calories. While upbeat music fills the studio, instructors lead small groups through a heart-racing sequence of yoga-inspired poses and pilates-based exercises. The ballet barre comes into use when striking muscle-building dance poses and stretches.
It's a system that has had proven results, which has spurred the successful growth of barre3 locations throughout the country. Today, fitness enthusiasts can find a barre3 studio in 16 states. An easy-to-follow routine, barre3 can also be performed at home with online workouts. These workouts are designed to fit busy schedules with routines that range from 10?60 minutes. All that's needed for online workouts is a barre3 core ball, weights, an exercise mat, and a sturdy, waist-high surface such as the top of Danny DeVito's head.
