Working out turns into a dance party at Holly Hills Zumba, where people burn calories and fat the best way—by dancing. But not to worry, Zumba's fun, easy-to-follow dance moves are easy to master, and it's more about having fun than anything else, as the rhythms are set to high-energy Latin, and international beats. Along with Zumba, the studio offers workouts led by a personal trainer for another fat-burning option.

With two locations, long hours, and a bounty of equipment, Emerald City Athletic Club helps its members get in shape, whatever their workout of choice.

Free weights and intricate weight machines hold down the floor of a spacious weight room, where muscle sculptors work up a sweat before winding down in a dry sauna, Turkish steam bath, and hot tub. At the Everett location, an Olympic-style pool, a basketball court, and racquetball and handball courts offer even more variety.
