The minds behind Doms Fitness want to get one thing straight: this is not a gym. Rather, the expansive indoor facility is home to a group-fitness and personal-training studio. Here, instructors lead pupils through non-intimidating sessions, where a small class size allows them to focus on form and technique. Weight benches, plyo machines and boxes, jump ropes, tires, kettlebells, and stability balls fuel the workouts, designed to cater to each client's individual needs and goals. On occasion, weight-loss and health challenges take clients outdoors where they take in the fresh air and push their bodies to new limits. And once the workout is over, the talented trainers turn their sights toward nutrition, counseling on dietary choices and introducing students to the principles of intuitive eating.

The 2,000-square-foot space at Z Factor Dance & Fitness Studio harbors rhythmic movements during classes and occasional events. Instructors walk students through the dance steps of ballet, hip-hop, or jazz traditions until their feet are as finely tuned as Elvis's vocal cords. Zumba, kickboxing, and yoga sessions blast physiques with full-body workouts, including Zumbatomic for kids and Zumba Gold for adults over the age of 55. The studio's sound system floods the dance floor with requisite tunes and the mirrors provide dancers with rough sketches of potential doppelgängers.
