The experienced instructors at One Body Studios specialize in two of the more meditative workouts around: yoga and Pilates. Their classes, which include Pilates Mat, and Pilates Reformer, tend to affect both the body and the mind, strengthening core muscles while deflating stress. They also offer ballet barre, which uses classical ballet training methods to create a challenging, non-impact cardio workout. No previous ballet training is necessary and all levels are welcome.
If you're looking for a more upbeat workout, the studio also hosts belly-dancing lessons that teach students how to shimmy, shake, and wiggle their way out of air vents. On top of it all, a resident massage therapist alleviates aches and tension during 30- or 60-minute massage sessions.
From Insanity sessions taught by certified Insanity instructors to Zumba, Fitness Revolution's exercise classes span the entire spectrum of energy output. Which means no matter students' preferred level of exertion, they can find a session that suits them including dance-centric Zumba toning class.

The Training Room?s owner and chief personal trainer can empathize with his out-of-shape clients, because just a few years ago, he tipped the scales at 300 pounds. It took two years of religious gym workouts to shed a paltry 40 of those, and he found the slow pace frustrating. But when he started high-intensity interval training, 40 more pounds fell off within three months. The form of exercise focuses on short spurts of energy, interspersed with rest, that?s specifically designed to burn maximum calories and boost metabolism in minimum time.

As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby, trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. 30 seconds is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment and designed to work opposing muscle groups. Exercisers then move on to a cardio station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates.
