Karve Studio's chief aim is in its name: to carve sculpted bodies with trim waistlines and lean but powerful limbs. Its instructors meet the task with the signature Karve workout, which fuses a variety of exercises into a single fitness regime. Ballet-barre moves, yoga, Pilates, core conditioning, and stretching work together to not only strengthen and tone but also add length to muscles.
Vibrant Latin music booms through the gigantic indoor Utah Futsal Arena as licensed instructors Cecilia Mills, Laura Osorio, Michelle Acree, and Alex Valente captain Zumba classes throughout the week to help their patrons to lead healthier lifestyles. With their welcoming, upbeat attitudes, the instructors motivate students of all ability levels through classes packed with high-intensity shimmying.
The choreography blends easy-to-follow aerobic movement with Latin-inspired dance moves, aiming to torch calories and tone the entire body while enhancing energy and overall physical health. Further demonstrating a commitment to salubrious living, a professional nutritionist is on staff to counsel participants in healthy eating habits and the proper identification of poisonous crayons.
At Viking CrossFit, adults aren't the only exercisers. In addition to typical CrossFit workouts, trainers also lead classes for kids. This version of CrossFit offers the same benefits of typical routines—strength, endurance, and overall fitness—but at a level that's safe and appropriate for different ages, including those as young as 4 years old.
With more than 30 years of kid-entertaining experience, The Little Gym provides a safe and noncompetitive environment wherein wee ones can exercise their brains and bodies. Maturing moppets aged four months–three years glean social and cognitive skills from a parent-child program that helps developing minds learn colors and numbers and helps parents learn to take turns and share. Gymnastics allows energized preschoolers and kindergarteners to tumble at their own pace and caters to differing ages, levels of muscle development, and hatred of vegetables. Grade-school gymnasts tackle the mat, bar, vault, and beam in classes set to their ability, not age, and dance and cheerleading classes allow the rhythmically inclined to shake and sway and the vocally enthused to yell things other than other people's Social Security numbers.
At age 19, Tara Marshall found herself working her way back to health after a debilitating car accident. During her recovery, Tara discovered Pilates, and she found that the gentle, fluid movements helped both strengthen the body and ease neurological disorders. Inspired to help others find the relief that she had, Tara pursued instructor training, studying assiduously in mat- and equipment-based Pilates. Once she had the knowledge of Pilates necessary to help others reshape their minds and bodies, Tara created Pure Pilates Classical Studio as a warm and welcoming place for people of all experience levels. Today, she teaches core classes that progress gradually from introductory to advanced movements to ease new students into Pilates practice. In keeping with her desire to help others heal themselves, Tara offers prenatal and postnatal sessions where pregnant women can strengthen their bodies to prepare for a healthy labor or help recovery after little ones are born.
Andrea Rogers combined dance and Pilates, her two greatest loves, to create a new genre of exercise, Xtend Barre.

Eventually, she fused the two together and began teaching her new breed of exercise at Xtend Barre Provo. Her classes welcome all levels, offering a challenging workout without pushing participants too far outside their comfort zone.
