The trainers behind Look Good Naked aim to get people comfortable in their skin. They have a slew of shared resources, such as nutritional guides, progressive measurements, and a weekly newsletter filled with exercising facts, meal ideas, ongoing coaching and support, and testimonials from clients. All these augment the core of the operation—the 12-week boot camps where both trainers and fellow students repurpose the benches, jungle gyms, and stairways of parks and public spaces during four, hour-long sessions each week. The sessions teach guests a slew of functional training maneuvers that require little or no equipment, helping them not only to slim down, but build up a skill set they can carry with them as they leave the camps.
There’s strength in numbers at Energy Pilates & Fitness: In addition to owner Debra Tourek, there’s 16 experienced and specialized fitness instructors, a childcare manager, and a medical director. They combine their powers to empower students to work their hardest. The team also emphasizes a fun, loose atmosphere, and each class can be easily customized to accommodate a range of workout needs and the current level of gravity. They lead dozens of classes that encompass different styles of Pilates, yoga, cardio workouts, Barrebody classes, and high-intensity interval training. Each instructor prepares his or her own unique workout routines; however, all routines focus on flexibility work, core work, and full-body conditioning. The studio also offers childcare for children 6 weeks old–11 years old during classes for an additional fee.

Kosama offers a fitness plan that's based in science and backed by proven results. Confident in their program's advantages, the fitness experts guarantee transformational outcomes. The fitness approach incorporates muscle confusion, nutrition, consultation, and heart zone training. Workouts often incorporate "confusion" by using tools such as kettlebells, plyometrics, kickboxing, and Whoopi Goldberg's Oscar.
During initial fitness evaluations, exertion levels and heart rates are analyzed. Fitness trainers then arm everyone with heart monitors and display workout performances on screens during classes to ensure students are pushing themselves. These tools help build stamina and train bodies to burn calories even after sessions are done. Online meal planning and vitamin profiling tools are available to members to maximize results. Encouragement is also an important factor in all of Kosama's programs. In each class, instructors foster supportive environments where students challenge and motivate each other.
At Torque Studio Cycle, instructors incorporate dim lights and energetic music into their low-impact cycle and circuit classes. As legs pedal and beads of sweat trickle down foreheads, exercisers can look down at the consoles of their Freemotion stationary bikes to keep track of the calories they've burned, the distance they've traveled, and their power output. Intense TorqueFit classes combine 30 minutes of cycle and circuit with 30 minutes of varied circuit-training exercises, which may include weightlifting, box jumps, ring pull-ups, and tire flips. This combination prevents muscles from plateauing, allowing them to keep growing and improving their stamina.
