Women’s workout routines take flight at Femme Fatale Fitness. Students perform controlled maneuvers, dangling from aerial silks or learning aerial hooping and impressive tricks on a static trapeze as instructors teach circus-inspired classes that gently tone muscles and boost flexibility. Alternatively, guests amp up core strength in pole-fitness classes that show ladies how to perform airborne routines with sassy twists and spins around chrome poles. All of Femme Fatale Fitness’s classes, which also include cardio kickboxing, burlesque, and chair dancing, aim to help women feel more confident in their bodies, resulting in higher self-esteem without having to invest in costly magic mirrors.
MVP Dance Fit is a fitness center that whips bodies into shape during supportive, fitness-based dance classes. Experienced instructors lead students through easy-to-follow dance moves during Latin-inspired Zumba and hip-hop classes. Ladies in the Adult Jazz class, on the other hand, learn a choreographed routine that can be performed in front of an audience during showcases held twice a year, where they'll be joined by other performing students from MVP's burlesque classes too. Meanwhile, moms and their young kids can work out together during special Mommy and Me dance classes, while on Friday nights, the fitness studio welcomes people for social events that pair margaritas with line dancing and wine with aerobics.
Since 1976, the instructors of TAMA Martial Arts Center have taught eight distinct disciplines—kung fu, muay thai kickboxing, and Brazilian jujitsu, to name a few. Some students work to master one discipline and others cross-train, learning a range of self-defense techniques. The classes are geared to specific age groups; kids aged 7–12 build self-esteem and motor skills in children's classes, and adults can enroll in more intensive courses and workshops on topics such as knife-defense techniques.

Sarah Wartell, a trained practitioner in thai-yoga bodywork, yoga, and Japanese reiki therapy, helms a studio in which she calls on all three holistic modalities to achieve optimal physical and mental healing. During yoga classes for all abilities, the studio fills with the sounds of controlled breathing, stretch-induced groans, and high-pitched yelps of contentment from downward-facing dogs. Agency shifts to the therapist during thai-yoga bodywork sessions that achieve heightened states of relaxation with a blend of focused compression and assisted poses. To practice their similarly holistic art, reiki therapists draw on ancient Japanese techniques designed to shuffle life-force energies around the body. Sarah’s mission to relax bodies and minds simultaneously is reflected in her studio’s décor, which features artwork depicting peace signs and leafy trees.
Inside an 800-square-foot room heated between 95?100 degrees, students sweat out their doubts as they flow through a set of 26 interconnected poses that unlock their inner potential. While a scene like this may seem ripped from the comics, the secret training regimen of an elite fighting force, it?s just business as usual for the trainers at Hot Yoga and Wellness Center. Leading four to five 60- to 90-minute classes each day, instructors tap into time-tested Eastern techniques that enhance flexibility, improve circulation, and flush toxins. The instructors also host special programs such as a 30-day challenge, during which participants practice hot yoga for 30 consecutive days. After class, guests can shower and use the changing rooms. In the lobby, they can savor a tea or espresso while browsing the facility?s stock of nutritional supplements, which use natural materials to bolster bodies more effectively than a treadmill made entirely out of apple cores. The studio also offers a selection of nonslip surface yoga mats, skin firming wraps, and zen-inspired bracelets made with manmade turquoise, Chinese crystals, and dyed jade.
