Though its name may conjure fantasies about sprinting down crowded streets or bench-pressing buses stalled in traffic, Urban Active Fitness grants its members abundant space in which to spread out and follow their workout proclivities. At dozens of locations across the Midwest and South, members can sculpt their bodies in whichever manner they choose—from personal training with resistance machines and free weights to group classes in cycling, Zumba, and Pilates. A number of group classes draw on the gym’s urban theme for inspiration. Urban Iron, for example, focuses on building muscles that resemble the cast-iron beams of skyscrapers, and Urban Yoga closely imitates the poses necessary to squeeze onto a subway train at rush hour.

During one of TenCycling's not-so-traditional spinning classes, the studio's RealRyder patented articulating bikes lean and move just like real bicycles, simulating the experience of pedaling down the scenic slopes of a mountain road or up and down undulating foothills. As students novice to pro cycle, they tone and fully engage their muscles and quickly burn through calories. And unlike some spinning classes, these high-energy workouts activate the muscles in the upper body, often leading to improved posture or spontaneous, wrestler-style t-shirt shredding sessions.
