The certified yoga instructors at Dharma Yoga Studio align stances in beginning, intermediate, and advanced classes, operating under the spiritual guidance of Sri Dharma Mittra, a man who has devoted more than 50 years to the ancient practice. A schedule packed with 26 weekly classes woos beginning posers with a yoga basics course, as well as restorative and gentle sessions where pupils master easy asanas using props such as blocks, inflated balls, and sequined top hats. Students seeking further advancement can manipulate bodies in the Dharma yoga series, which gradually intensifies from the balancing, stretching, and inverted poses of Dharma I to highly advanced, two-hour Dharma IV sessions. The advanced Dharma IV class guides partakers through a meditative psychic sleep that incorporates ancient breathing practices, sound, and supersensory games of Guess Who.

Between 10 locations, The Edge Fitness Clubs' trainers offer more than 1,000 group fitness classes every week. They lead spinning, Zumba, and yoga classes alongside kickboxing sessions and intense interval strength training. The motivating coaches conduct every class in a private studio, save for those that require them to use the strength-training or cardio equipment that occupies the main floor.?

While the primary purpose of each fitness club is to get people in shape, the staff also supply a range of other amenities. Conveniently, some of those features make it easier to get fit. For example, the gyms offer babysitting complete with structured educational activities for kids. Also, members are invited to bring a friend for free every Friday to sample classes, work up a sweat, and practice their locker-room banter. And a number of onsite tanning beds provide an opportunity for members to bronze their newly sculpted bods.

After Brian Ayers earned his degree in fitness management and went to work in a corporate fitness setting, he discovered a new kind of training—one that involved challenges such as boxing, mud races, and obstacle courses. "I moved away from using machines and dumbbell exercises to exercises that will get people in shape for more athletic things," he says. In June 2011, he decided to open a studio dedicated to the philosophy of embracing challenge, and Rugged Fitness was born.

Traditional machines do not exist at Rugged Fitness. Instead, there's plenty of space for boot-camp workouts, a pull-up area with TRX bands, and 11 heavy bags for boxing classes, which never exceed 11 pupils. Outside, giant tires patiently wait to be lifted and flipped, and an obstacle course with monkey bars, army-crawl netting, and a climbing wall dares visitors to push themselves to their limit. During the interval-based boot camps, students might heft sledgehammers one minute and drop for pushups the next. Because activities focus on increments of time, rather than specific weights or numbers of reps, everyone can calibrate the exercises to their ability level. And the students do have a range of abilities—some are fitness aficionados, whereas others are complete beginners, and one student dropped more than 100 pounds.

To challenge and encourage students, Brian gathered a staff of experienced coaches, which includes a former professional boxer and an amateur mixed-martial-arts fighter. "Our coaches are all very hands-on," he says, "Everything they they're putting you through, they've done. It's not just someone sitting back with a cheeseburger telling you to do pushups." That spirit of camaraderie extends throughout Rugged Fitness's clientele. "You're all struggling through these crazy workouts we're going to put you through," Brian says. Even outside the gym, members frequently band together to complete mud runs, obstacle courses, and marathon Macarena sessions.

To supplement the classes—which include kickboxing, kettlebell conditioning, and the once-a-week Rugged Boot Camp challenge—the trainers offer one-on-one nutrition counseling. An online nutrition program helps steer guests toward healthier diets, analyzing what they're eating based on the calories, nutritional components, and number of Flintstone vitamins hiding in foods.
