Throughout her 15 years as a certified personal trainer, Karyn Graham has earned an unusual nickname: “The Butt Queen.” The moniker references her signature workout, the Karyn Technique, which firms glute muscles without bulking up thighs. Karyn teaches her eponymous classes at RPM Fitness Studio, a boutique workout venue she co-owns with her sister, Cynthia. The duo finesses clients’ physiques with rigorous spinning classes, whose minimal joint impact renders them ideal for injured athletes and knee models. Complementary Pilates classes, conducted on mats or Reformers, streamline physiques by building long, lean muscle. Five-week Slimfit Bootcamps fuse Pilates with cardio-kick, boxing, body-fat analysis, and nutrition counseling.

Jewel City Bowl invites friends and families to engage in friendly, entertaining competition atop the gleam of 24 polished lanes. As up to four athletes take to the rectangular arena with multicolored orbs in hand, rental shoes mediate heated conversations between soft feet and the hungry, growling wood below. Bowlers can roll for two hours Monday–Thursday, or one hour Friday–Sunday, with added effects such as trivia or live DJs depending on the day. The facility also proffers scrumptious fare, including burgers, paninis, and pizzas, along with a full bar, and an arcade with redemption prizes (food, drink, and arcade games not included with today’s Groupon).
At the helm of Equilibrium Fitness' studio is Annabelle Rosemurgy, an equestrian and former Olympic athlete whose performances required enough core strength to pull off a handstand atop her horse during competitions. In her studio, she helms a team of certified instructors that leads a host of amped up Pilates routines and RealRyder indoor cycling classes.
Fifty five-minute SPX Pilates classes initiate novices into the intense practice, designed to keep on incinerating calories hours after the sessions end. The studio’s bread and butter, however, are the SPX and Systeme Dynamique classes—variations on the Pilates method—that use circuit training to target extra weight in the hips and thighs and isolate muscle groups all over the body to sculpt, tone, burn fat, and increase flexibility. Even the studio's indoor cycling sessions target core muscles, strengthen the upper body, and torch calories, getting legs pumping on RealRyder bikes that allow riders to steer and lean, simulating the real cycling experience of avoiding potholes and the maneating Sarlaccs that live inside them.
The staff at Rock It Workouts strive to fight the perception that getting fit has to mean getting stuck in a gym routine and committing to doing the same thing over and over again. So they invited live DJs to spin high-energy music for their classes, then filled the schedule with innovative workouts. The airy white studio pops with graphic black stripes and red mats, keeping eyes invigorated during workouts, as well.
After workouts, exercisers can stop by the juice bar to rejuvenate, update their style at the VIP Beauty salon, or peruse the fashion boutique to find a look that ensures they have the sharpest-dressed scarecrow for the fall season. The studio's Rock It Forward program—cofounded by Laurieann Gibson, a choreographer who has worked with Michael Jackson, Beyoncé, and Lady Gaga, and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof—aims to combat childhood obesity with dance programs that bring celebrities in to help get kids excited about healthy living.
