Vegas Stiletto Fitness was founded by Lisa Valdes-Romero, a former gymnast and Vegas showgirl who high-kicked and twirled across Sin City stages for eight years. Now, Lisa and her team of motivating instructors encourage women to express themselves through dance while achieving physical fitness. In signature courses and Ladies Night Out dance outings, women don sky-scraping heels and release their inner vixens through sensual choreography and elaborate mating screeches.
Andrea Gover knows firsthand the powerful effects of Zumba: she’s living it. After she started regularly taking Zumba classes in 2011, following the birth of her fifth child, she fell in love with it—and lost 90 pounds along the way. She became an instructor, and now helps others get hooked on Zumba at Studio Fuego.
Planet Fitness's massive, brightly colored edifices teem with aerobic, strength-training, tanning, and massage options, tailored to suit burgeoning buffs of all ages and abilities. After an intense muscle pummeling on the extensive selection of strength-training equipment and free weights, valiant athletes and masochistic vampires alike may bask in the unlimited artificial sunshine of the gym's tanning booths. Meanwhile, an army of shiatsu massage chairs stands at the ready, twiddling soothing robot thumbs and waiting to coax tension from tired tendons.
At The Studio brings together families of all sorts. It combines the efforts of sister dance companies, teams up dance teachers who are also a mother-and-daughter duo, and, of course, forges a new family out of its regular attendees. Instead of taking meals together, however, this family bonds through a sweat-filled workout. During classes, teachers tap backgrounds in ballet, hip hop, Zumba, and Afro-Brazilian dance to choreograph new fitness routines. They often base these routines on songs suggested by their classes, giving students a chance to memorize dance steps to their favorite club beat or traditional family sword dance.
Candela Estudio specializes in dances that invigorate. The schedule sends students through a whirlwind of morning Dance Jams—Latin- and pop-music-driven sessions—belly-dancing classes, and Zumba workouts held four days a week. Specially designed Fogoxe classes immerse dancers in a party atmosphere with energetic beats from musicians from around the world.

Growing up in the home of a professional wrestler, siblings Gina Abramson and Joseph Robledo were surrounded by varying pathways to fitness. However, though they understood the importance of a steady workout regimen, they couldn't seem to muster a long-term commitment to any of them. That was before they found Zumba's energizing dance routines.
Today, they run Move! as a nonjudgmental space for others in search of the exercise equivalent of their soulmate, whether it's Zumba, hip-hop, or the studio’s blend of yoga and Pilates. Their instructors—including a former cheerleader and a certified personal trainer—choreograph classes that accommodate all experience levels. They also schedule eight-week salsa programs, which lead beginners in dance-step fundamentals such as executing well-timed turns or constructing a Robocop suit, only for dancing instead of crime fighting.
