While many gyms offer weights, treadmills, ellipticals, and rowing machines to help its members achieve leaner physiques, all JC Barre Fitness Studio needs is a ballet barre. That's because the apparatus helps students sculpt lean muscles, lose weight, and increase agility thanks to a flurry of exercises performed during various classes. The studio's signature class B3 blends Pilates, ballet, and Yoga into a one-hour, 600 calorie-burning workout, and co-ed boot camp by B3 ups the exercise ante with increased cardio and isometric moves that deliver a satisfying burn without actually setting fire to one's muscles. In addition to barre classes, the studio offers up Pilates and Zumba sessions and invites its clients to suggest additional classes via email.

For A.M. Fitness Groove owner and head instructor Ajia Maximillian, working out should be a party that you look forward to, not something you dread at the end of the day. To that end, she opened her dance-fitness studio to spice up workouts, while catering to the busy schedule of New Yorkers. Sessions start at 6:30 a.m., allowing students to burn calories during a Zumba or boot-camp class before heading into work as the mayor’s bagel tester. Ajia also offers “express” midday classes that easily squeeze into a lunch break, with the hope that clients can get their workout in during the day, leaving time for friends, family, and relaxation in the evenings. And to boost energy levels and overall fun, she infuses her up-tempo dance classes with elements from her background in West African drumming, hip-hop, and Congolese dancing.
