Snap Fitness's around-the-clock gyms enable members to work on their physical well-being with a cornucopia of fitness equipment. With 24-hour access, members don't have to let The Man tell them when to help themselves to Snap's strength and cardio equipment, which features built-in TVs and other media diversions. For those who exercise during conventional hours, Snap's friendly, unintimidating atmosphere welcomes patrons of all ability levels, unlike schoolyard dodge-ball squads. Members also enjoy nationwide access to all Snap Fitness locations, ideal for working out while traveling. For a dose of custom advice, patrons can seek out a personal-training session with a certified coach, who helps them assess and address their fitness goals. Clients reap the benefit of individual attention as a personal trainer helps them tackle weight loss, prepare for an arm-wrestling competition, or unveil the mysteries of arcane cable-weight machines.
Balance Yoga’s instructors aim to do more than just give their students a rewarding workout routine—they also help build sound, centered minds and a positive supportive community. Students enroll in a wide range of classes, tackling everything from the core-strengthening poses of Vinaysa flow to the muscle-strengthening Yoga Sculpt, and the slow-pace of Balance Hot Yoga within a heated studio with bamboo floorboards.
After a workout, yogis can head to the spacious locker rooms to shower and ready themselves for the workday. Balance Yoga also unites practitioners of all ages with workshops and events such as kids' classes, art shows, and festivals.

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
In both cycling and yoga, our instructors are highly trained. We'll guide you alongside great music in a gorgeous, state-of-the-art studio. There's also nothing like the energy of the group. At Resolute Fitness, your resolution is our commitment. Our instructors will push you in a fun, all-levels environment. You'll want to stay committed to your fitness, because the classes and energy are fun, and the combination of cycling and yoga is everything you need for total mind and body fitness.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We offer cycling and yoga, along with a cycling-and-yoga combo class. These two activities are everything you need for total mind-body fitness. Cycling classes are a high-energy, 45-minute total-body workout. (Yes, we do upper body weights in cycling.) Yoga classes are a 60 minute power vinyasa flow—an athletic style of yoga that improves strength, balance, and flexibility. At resolute, we help people lead purposefully balanced lives.
A team of passionate instructors fosters a community of health- and wellness-conscious patrons brought together by Bodhi Yoga's classes, spa treatments, and a boutique stocked with items to help integrate healthy-living practices into daily routines. Yoga sessions range in difficulty and style, including vigorous Vinyasa- and hot-yoga classes, to accommodate downward-facing dogs of all skill levels and breeds. Patrons looking to enhance a wellness-focused lifestyle may pay a visit to the facility's resident holistic healers, who perform massage body work, acupuncture, cosmetic laser teeth whitening, and skincare services.
Walls are important, functionally speaking, but the team at Trio Life Fitness finds the decorative potential in its four—with humans—during wall Pilates and fitness training. The studio's certified instructors attach students to adjustable harnesses and straps, then guide them through exercises that can be vigorous workouts of the back, chest, and hips without placing stress on the joints.
The Trio Life staff also teaches Trio Fit sessions, a fusion of flexibility exercises, Pilates-based strength training, and spin, for which guests should bring their own laundry machine. During spin classes, a certified instructor leads up to 15 students in pedaling toward cardio health—behind them, a vibrant mural shows a blue sky with white flowers. Pilates and spin are their specialties, and the schedule features an abundance of each Monday–Friday, as well as at least one class Saturday and Sunday. These classes are the pillars of the curriculum because they hit the three aspects of the studio’s "trifecta of fitness"—cardio, strength, and flexibility.
Del Sol Martials Arts & Fitness began not in a sweaty gym where young athletes learned to love exercise, though that is a chapter in its story. Its true origin lies in a kindergarten classroom where Thomas Leverett and Claudia Castro first met. The pair attended every year of school together, eventually celebrating when Thomas earned the title of Sifu and began his own Mantis-style kung fu school, and again when Claudia became a certified yogi. She joined him to start teaching, and together their family reached out to others to train them in fitness, discipline, healthy lifestyles, and 20-year courtships.
Today, students flock to their gym to study Northern Shaolin Seven Star Praying Mantis–style kung fu, a lineage for which Sifu Leverett is an official guardian. Claudia guides students through the equally ancient traditions of Ashtanga- and Vinyasa-style yoga. The duo even offers private cooking classes to teach how to create delicious, healthy meals or light stovetop burners simply by lifting up another stove and placing its already lit burners on them.
