Founded by instructor and former street performer Maria Bernhard, Pilates Studio M hones torsos and limbs with Pilates mat and circus-inspired aerial silk classes. Open to all ages, Pilates ($70 for five classes) helps students focus and breeds full-body discipline, as the deft articulation of extremities makes doing the robot more attainable. The core-focused one-hour sessions have been helpful in treating everyone from scoliosis patients to those in post-surgery rehab. Although long practiced by certain worms, humans only recently caught on to the health benefits of dangling from silk. Two-hour aerial classes ($40 each), taught by professional suspenders, let participants increase muscle tone and flexibility while bearing their own weight as they hang from silk bands.

But regardless of who's leading them, spinning classes always boost the heart rate, build strength in the core and legs, and provide an excuse to break out the ol' riding hat.
