For the past three years, Eileen Do has been teaching Zumba. Unlike traditional exercises, Zumba aims for a dance-party workout instead of boring repetitions and semi-truck lifting. Eileen guides her students through Latin-inspired moves while upbeat music from around the world blasts from her stereo. She also teaches Zumba Toning, which pairs hip-shaking salsa and samba steps with maraca-shaped hand weights to sculpt arms, abs, and legs.

Fitness guru Kristen Horler developed Baby Boot Camp after she gave birth to her first child and realized the lack of appropriate prenatal and postnatal training programs currently available. The stroller-based fitness classes are designed to help moms get fit in a supportive and empathetic environment, combining strength-training exercises, cardiovascular drills, Pilates, yoga, and ab work. Eliminating the need for a babysitter and facilitating familial bonding, students are encouraged to bring along their new bundle and even use the stroller as a resistance tool. To ensure your utmost safety, all instructors are highly trained and certified, and the boot camp's structure abides by the guidelines of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the American Council on Exercise.

The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.

The team at Altos Medical Acupuncture knows that holistic approaches to healing should complement, rather than compete with, conventional healthcare. The specialists are familiar with both Eastern and Western modalities, drawing on experiences ranging from working in trauma centers to studying Daoist texts. This duality works in their patients’ favor: no matter the treatment, staff members can work stethoscope-to-stethoscope with their clients' physicians to help them overcome a range of ailments.

Visitors’ physical and emotional concerns are addressed with therapies ranging from therapeutic massage to electrical stimulation. The clinic specializes in the Five Elements style of acupuncture, which allows for diagnoses as well as treatment of bodily or seesaw imbalances. The acupuncturists may augment healing sessions by integrating other holistic treatments, such as moxibustion or cupping.
