For many, maintaining a healthy fitness regimen is an off-putting chore on par with cleaning the garage or assembling that backyard roller coaster for the kids. The folks behind Snap Fitness, who now boast locations all over the world, are of the opinion that this doesn't have to be the case. They believe 24-hour access to premium cardio and strength-training equipment, innovative easyFIT monitors to track personal progress, and perpetual guidance from certified professionals can help transform physical fitness into an accessible activity that yields measurable and tangible results. In addition to providing online workout rubrics and meal plans, they work to keep sweat glands up and running by offering work out rewards programs, making regular check-in calls, and measuring bodies—sans padded muscle suits—every 30 days.
Sangha Studios is anchored to the community by its welcoming yoga instructors. The yoga studio itself has an inviting quality as well, with wooden floors, blue and green walls hung with ornamental mirrors, and foliage and strands of aerial silk hanging from the ceiling. Here, groups convene for yoga classes such as Sangha Flow, which concentrates on fluid movements and breathing exercises, and Cycling Yoga, which is preceded by a 30-minute stationary bike ride. There are 10 classes in all, one for each planet in the solar system once Pluto and the giant yoga studio orbiting Pluto get reclassified as planets.
