Super Impact Fitness Studio eschews clunky and cumbersome gym equipment for a "classes only" workout mantra, rallying physiques between exposed-brick walls and floor-to-ceiling windows for routines led by certified instructors. Guests can sync their breathing to match meditative Vinyasa yoga poses or follow intuitive Zumba dance steps for a full-body burn. Boot-camp drills merge strength and cardio training to target oft-overlooked muscles in ears and phantom limbs. Spin, dance, and mixed-martial-arts sessions—helmed by cage fighter Michael "Sharp" Sanders—also fuel fat-busting drills. The staff promotes a well-rounded approach to health with holistic lifestyle counseling and plans to lodge local artwork, theater rehearsals, and zoological exhibits smaller than a breadbox during SIF Studio Presents showcases.

In New York-style salsa dancing, the break steps occur on the second and sixth beats, not on the first and fifth like most dances. Because of that, dancers refer to the style as "On2". Few know the unorthodox style of stepping better than the instructors at Salsa Fever On2 Dance Academy. Led by founder Mario B, they schedule classes for students of all experience levels, even those with two left feet or more than two left feet. Their beginner classes introduce inexperienced dancers to the fundamentals of spinning, twirling, shining, timing, and musicality, while advanced classes do the same but at a more frenzied pace.
