For years, Life in Synergy founder Helena Collins was frustrated with her body. Despite vigorously working out and dieting, she wasn't seeing results. But she knew there had to be a way to achieve the figure she wanted while still eating the foods she loved and actually enjoying her workouts. So she set out to find a solution. After more than 30 years of research, she now lives by the motto "Work smarter, not harder," and has developed a fitness method that motivates her clients to make long-term changes through custom nutrition plans, exercise, and life-coaching sessions.
Along with her team of certified trainers, Collins first meets with each client to assess their goals, which might include losing pounds or finally being able to bench-press their older brother. The staff then develops a customized nutrition plan that eschews fad diets and starvation, as well as a fitness plan that hones in on specific problem areas such as the thighs, love handles, and belly. During Life in Synergy's signature Synergistics Fitness Method classes, clients work toward those same goals in a group setting, using exercise bands and medicine balls for low-impact moves that don't damage joints. The metabolism-boosting workouts also emphasize stretching and strengthening weak muscles to correct any imbalances in the body. The trainers further hone in on problem areas during classes including Butts and Guts, Lean Legs, and Abs and Arms.

Led by fitness guru and certified trainer Jen Brickey, Fusion Workouts offers intense fitness regimens for students that want to work hard, have fun, and achieve bodaciously ripped bodies.

Don't show up to Common Fitness expecting to see rows of treadmills under fluorescent lights—the company considers that far too boring. Instead, exercisers work out outdoors on the Waltham Common, hauling tires, lifting kettlebells, and forming the poses of Vinyasa Flow yoga under the guidance of certified trainers. The idea is to create a less monotonous workout and also to set a friendly, social tone that in turn makes classes more fun.

Pole dancing classes emphasize upper body strength, but with equal attention to spins that incorporate the lower body.
