Taylor Morris skillfully juggles duel careers in medicine and fitness, and channels the knowledge she’s gained from both into her meditative yoga and core-building Pilates classes. This certified personal trainer strives to overhaul lackluster group fitness programs by providing each student with proper adjustments and corrections to help them tone up their physiques. Within her sunny, airy studio, walls studded with inspirational affirmations and an accountability board help students banish negative body images and keep themselves on track, and on select days, Taylor's team of motivating, certified instructors take their calming yoga classes outdoors, allowing guests to sun salute and photosynthesize in the fresh air.
After each class, instructors pass out refreshing eucalyptus or lavender towels to students who wish to linger and relax amid the lobby's calming water features or browse inside the retail shop, and an aesthetician is also on hand to perform complexion-nourishing facials or upper-body-waxing services.

Missi Wolf, the founder and owner of BLAST900, once weighed 206 pounds at a height of 5 feet and had a body-fat percentage of 34%. Her doctor informed her that she was morbidly obese and almost diabetic. Determined to lose weight, Missi started with baby steps—walking to the mailbox and back—and after two years she had lost 100 pounds. Her transformation inspired her to return to school to study kinesiology and physiology in pursuit of the ultimate workout: BLAST900. Blast classes involve cardio intervals on a treadmill and strength-training exercises on the floor. Missi and her team of trainers combine personalized fitness education with nutrition information to help clients sculpt their bodies, shed pounds, and build muscles.
Boasting brand-new facilities at its Mount Pleasant digs, Go Figure helps students straighten out their frames and amplify their fitness within a friendly atmosphere. The studio's figure method class works to improve posture, poise, flexibility, and muscle tone with an unmatched workout that combines Pilates, ballet, yoga, and orthopedic exercise. The 55-minute regimen involves continuous, deliberate stretching and posing and uses only individual body mass as resistance, which is much less stressful than going to an ordinary gym to lift strangers.
