The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.

In this parkour-based studio, improvisation is the name of the game as urban acrobats navigate a changeable maze of barriers, bars, and soft landing pads using practical and functional movements. Directed by a pro team originally based out of Boulder, athletes ages 13 and older scale sheer walls, spin in mid-air, and bounce from vertical surface to vertical surface. Before they attempt open gym sessions, beginners should start on introductory classes, during which they work on strength, agility, the art of falling, and explaining to citizens that they are not real superheroes.

After the birth of her twin boys, personal trainer Amy L. George needed a way to combine her passion for her kids and for fitness. Soon, Get Movin’ Momma was born, too. She helps moms-to-be stay fit throughout their pregnancies and guides new moms through routines that help them get back in shape with or without their little ones in tow for workouts. Amy also has classes for moms and their preschoolers that are more effective than simply chasing a preschooler or chasing a preschooler who’s running on a treadmill. Moms also turn to her for me time with personal-training sessions and boot camps.

What does it take to be elite? In the case of The Great American Hero Obstacle Race, it requires climbing 12 foot walls, rope courses, crawling under nets, and conquering a total 40 obstacles sprinkled along a 10K course. These “Elite Waves,” which are limited to 200 participants or 100 sets of identical twins, challenge the most serious of athletes to compete for a cash prize. However, The Great American Hero Obstacle Race welcomes competitors of all fitness levels onto their 10K and 5K courses. Each route intersects two levels of obstacles; runners need only complete the ones that best meet their abilities. At the finish line waits a medal, a free beer, and the satisfaction that comes from helping a good cause; proceeds from the race benefit the Semper Fi Fund and the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
