The trainers at Underground Fitness II inspire their guests to conquer their fitness goals?big or small?through high-energy group workouts in an encouraging atmosphere backed by heart-pumping beats. During Zumba and U-Jam classes, the instructors transform the studio into a club scene, as patrons bust a move powered by pulsing Latin or hip-hop tunes. Those same beats also thump through the Werk It Stiletto Fitness Class, helping students clad in heels or wedges strut and shake their way to a toned physique. Other dance-inspired classes include the Polynesian-themed Hot Hula class, and Piloxing, which blends the conditioning and agility work of boxing with the high energy and muscle confusion of traditional pilates.
Premier Ballroom Studio enlists a cadre of experienced instructors to teach dancers ballroom-bound footwork during classes held every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evening. Each lesson focuses on a different style of social ballroom dance, with recent classes covering the waltz and cha-cha, West Coast swing, and the Groucho Marx glide. Classes are followed by a social dance party, where students can pair off to practice the steps and learn to sense the proper moment to back-flip off a partner's shoulders. Strut through Premier Ballroom Studio's 8,126-square-foot facility, which is equipped with a 3,240-square-foot main dance floor and a smaller, cozier 750-square-foot studio floor. A state-of-the-art sound and lighting system coaxes out fleet-footed performances.
