When women find a fun new fitness class, they talk. Which is lucky for Aerobic Rhythmics, since it was primarily word-of-mouth that caused the aerobic workout to spread throughout 20 schools in Montgomery and Bucks counties, community buildings, and church locations since the first class in 1980. Instructors lead them through engaging, high-energy routines with nothing but resistance bands, hand weights, and mats, which produces lasting results.

A team of expert trainers designed the fitness programs at Apex Fitness Boot Camp to challenge those who work out regularly as well as less-active participants trying to get back into shape. The intensive indoor and outdoor workouts boost metabolism and tone musculature for slimmer, more chiseled edifices. Each session combines both cardio and strength training, using 30 pieces of functional training equipment such as TRX suspension, workout ropes, sand bags, kettlebells, spin bikes, and agility poles to draw together the primal movement patterns—such as squats, crunches, lunges, and gait-enhancing strides—that hark back to when humans were amoebic ninjas splashing in primordial soup. An ever-changing routine keeps workouts from getting stale, and a recess-inspired game at the end of each session adds a dose of fun to the fitness program.
Campers who attend sessions three to five days a week torch calories, oust body fat, and usher in lean, toned muscle. Expert fitness gurus encourage clients to work at their own pace, allowing even the most out-of-shape or octagon-shaped person to break a sweat without feeling the heat of competition. To stay on track, participants take part in bi-monthly fitness-performance testing and weekly weigh-ins tracked by software that lets them check their progress any time of the day or night. Apex Fitness also offers Training for Warriors sessions that employ MMA-style training and specially designed functional equipment within a turfed training center.
Sensei and trainers converge in Voltage’s studio to teach the ancient art of karate to kids and teens, or amp up heart rates with more modern fitness classes. Adults work out alongside peers in six upbeat and challenging group classes, the majority of which incorporate a dance-party atmosphere. Both belly dancing and Red Hot Dance help exercisers shimmy off calories and tone physiques with a variety of moves, from core-toning twirls to fast-paced choreography set to Top 40 hits. For a more sporting session, Piloxing blends the cardiovascular workout of boxing’s bobbing and weaving with the same ab-strengthening Pilates moves that boxers use to celebrate a KO.
Meanwhile, in the kids' studio, Leopard Cub classes (4–6 year olds) teaches the basics of karate, while the junior’s club (for 7–10 year olds) builds on those foundational lessons with more advanced kicks and punches. Karate instructors extend their fighting fervor to teenagers and adults, bringing the two age groups together more effectively than a Pat Boone Sings Carly Rae Jepson album.
