To complete her 200-hour teacher certification, Andrea Cesarek ventured all the way to yoga’s birthplace—India. It was there, enveloped in the culture, that Andrea mastered the tenets of Hatha yoga. This traditional practice springs from three fundamental components: focused breath, proper posture, and complete relaxation. As an alternative—or complement—to yoga, Andrea also practices reiki, a Japanese method that channels calming energy into clients by laying hands on or near the body.
The inspiring trainers at MetaBody 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.
If it's difficult to keep track of the various techniques that characterize Kuk Sool Won, that's because it incorporates some part of every Korean martial art: jabs and kicks, throws and grappling, locks, falling, and general body conditioning—even animal-inspired moves and combat with weapons. In addition to the sparring methods, Kuk Sool Won also emphasizes ancient Eastern healing techniques—such as acupuncture, acupressure, and meditation—as ways to build confidence before and after combat. At Kuk Sool Won of Madison Heights, instructors lead classes for all levels, even families.

Even CrossFit pros have a least favorite move. For CrossFit BMW: Benchmark Workouts coach Christopher Binno, it’s the box jump. Binno knows how effective routines with his least favorite move can be, though, because he took up CrossFit to become a better wrestler; and it worked. He and fellow coach Jarrod Bell—who has 25 years of fitness and coaching experience as well as CrossFit and Olympic lifting certifications—lead the center’s classes, which consist of an ever-changing high-intensity routine of functional movements that quickly whittle the body into shape. They also teach Fundamentals classes, which teach first-timers to perform core CrossFit moves and the basic dance steps from the Scarface stage musical.
