  • Simply Pilates
    As a ballet dancer, David Gensheimer didn't need much help becoming lean, limber, and lithe. But when he found himself recovering from knee surgery, he knew he needed to find something that would keep him strong without compromising his healing process. In addition to physical therapy, he turned to Pilates and was won over by the sport's ability to strengthen core muscles and enhance flexibility. Though he was back to pirouetting in no time, David never lost the Pilates bug and went on to complete his Pilates training while serving as a company member with Ballet Austin and Nashville Ballet and dancing with the Houston Metropolitan Dance Company and Stillpoint. Today, when he's not busy dancing his way through guest performances around the country, David helms Simply Balanced where he helps others strengthen, rehabilitate, and challenge their bodies through Pilates and yoga classes. Students can also try Gyrotonic classes, which blend elements of gymnastics, yoga, dance, and tai chi, performed on a weight and pulley machine that engages the entire body. Beyond transforming the way visitors look, move, and feel about spandex shorts, the Simply Balanced studio also showers them with feel-good perks such as complimentary beverages, free parking, and access to a team of highly trained massage therapists.

  • The Pilates Place
    While music lilts through the workout spaces of BarreAmped, instructors guide limbs through the muscle-lengthening maneuvers of Suzanne Bowen's BarreAmped programs. Many of them have augmented their extensive dance, gymnastics, and fitness backgrounds with training from Suzanne Bowen herself—including the Franklin studio's Amy Weber, who has practiced BarreAmped since before it was branded and now trains fellow teachers. She is one of five instructors onsite, not including subs. All of them specialize in the method's combination of dance, Pilates, yoga, and orthopedic stretching, demonstrating how to leverage the body against a ballet barre for deeper holds. With small movements that shift each posture, they tighten traditional problem areas such as the seat, thighs, and water wings that have been stuck on arms since childhood. They also align each student's physique with hands-on corrections during class.

  • BareFeet Studios
    At the age of three, an age when most kids are honing their recipe for Play-Doh spaghetti, Danika Miles was perfecting her dance moves. She competed with the River Cities Dance Company, minored in dance at Marshall University, and went on to earn an MBA so that she could share her passion with others. Finally, she founded BareFeet Studios, a facility with two dance spaces and sprung-wood floors. Within BareFeet, Danika and fellow instructors lead student?as young as three to adults?in dance forms such as ballet, hip-hop, and tap. They also offer open-level yoga, Zumba, Pilates, and fitness boot camps. Students with years of experience can audition for BareFeet Studios' senior company, which performs at benefits, charity events, and conventions with other professional dance companies. The studio additionally hosts an annual spring concert, birthday parties, and private lessons.

    When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. MetaBody created a real-life version of that ticket with the MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.

In that inclusive spirit, every class is open to all levels, empowering students to try any style of yoga at their own pace. Hot Yoga Plus also hosts teacher training with 200-hour certifications through Yoga Alliance, though instructors advise against completing all 200 hours consecutively.
