Inside a pink-painted studio, instructors invite ladies of all builds and backgrounds to forget their inhibitions during group fitness classes, which range from Zumba to yoga. They combine muscle-sculpting routines and festive energy by hosting several music-based lessons, including the nightclub-like Zumba in the Dark. Additionally, Fuze Wellness Studio's massage therapists and life coaches balance out fast-paced routines by cultivating relaxation and mental calm. Through all this, the staff aims to help students tap into inner and outer strength, as well as empower them to feel secure in their bodies, a goal that is far easier than empowering them to feel secure in their lederhosen.

At CKO Kickboxing, combatants wage one-hour battles against an army of heavy bags. The weighted punching bags dangle in long rows as participants unleash flurries of kicks, punches, knees, and elbows upon them until they agree to personally train them. CKO's instructors emphasize the fitness aspects of kickboxing over a traditional martial-arts education, peppering sessions of punches and kicks with plyometrics and cross training to sculpt and strengthen the entire body. Students of all skill levels are welcome in each class, and beginners are encouraged to progress at their own pace.
