Although Intersport Fitness Center houses a sprawling weight room, there's still space for exercisers who don't want to work out alone. The facility's staff schedules one-on-one personal-training sessions and weekly group-fitness classes, including cycling and aerobics. Topping things off are amenities such as saunas.
When Vicki Dixon tells her students, "You can do it and are worth it!" she knows what she's talking about. With her husband, they lost more than 100 pounds once they started doing Zumba together. But not only did she shed pounds and gain energy: she wanted to share her experience with others, so they could also party their way into shape with Zumba. She and her husband became licensed Zumba instructors, and now do just that at Zumba Queen V.
Fitness Evolution's gyms span the country, from California to Maryland, hosting hassle-free workouts on their high-quality equipment or in a wide range of group classes led by upbeat instructors. The staff strives to maintain an open, inviting atmosphere at all times, whether helping clients operate free weights or offering encouragement to Aqua Fit and indoor cycling classes.

Certified Zumba instructor Cassie Venegas wants to share the joy she’s had of getting fit through dancing since she found Zumba. Zumba—a fusion of fast-paced aerobic dance moves and upbeat Latin rhythms—is a dance fitness class that often seems more like a party than another day at the gym. The combination of hypnotic beats and fun, simple-to-follow movements makes Zumba a good class for beginners and seasoned exercisers alike.
Women leave Millie's Fitness transformed. That's due to its commitment to empowering women with life-changing habits and a motivating community. It offers fitness classes such as Zumba and belly dancing that focus on cardio endurance through lively dance moves. For the stubborn areas that can't be toned through dance exercise, Millie's Fitness also offers Lipo-Light treatments that use low-level light energy to rupture fat cells and reduce buildup on areas such as the hips and waist.
Studio Silhouette's fitness classes are almost as much about mental and emotional well-being as they are about physical health. Inside the center's 3,600-square-foot studio, yogis teach students poses that not only improve their posture and flexibility but also help them forge a connection between their minds and bodies. Zumba classes take a breezier approach, turning workouts into parties by setting cardio moves to exhilarating Latin music. To cool down after these classes, students head to the lounge area, where they can pick up a beverage from the smoothie station.
Like the treadmill that powers Air Force One, Studio Silhouette has an additional function besides exercise: nutrition counseling. The center's five-day reset program helps clients overcome carbohydrate cravings and lose weight by eschewing the typical Western diet. Each day, participants replace meals and snacks with three shakes, a nutrition bar, one serving of fruit, and one serving of vegetables.
