Fueled by a desire to offer their clients fun and motivating ways to stay active, The Action Room's instructors lead myriad classes, from ballroom dancing to country line dancing to Zumba fitness. For those preparing for a wedding or formal touchdown celebration, the instructors teach private and group dance lessons that cover all the major ballroom moves. In addition to leading dance-focused classes, the instructors set pupils' hearts pumping during fitness-based classes that include cardio kickboxing, TRX suspension training, and yoga. High-octane boot camps prepare bodies for the beach, and tummy-centered Pilates workouts help patrons build solid core muscles to deflect any flailing limbs on the dance floor.
The teaching staff at The Sanctuary for Yoga fosters physical and spiritual well-being with yoga classes for kids and adults. The studio’s eclectic schedule explores a range of yoga styles, such as Hatha and Vinyasa, connecting minds and bodies without an inch of duct tape. For yoga newbies and yogis who’ve been on a break, beginner’s classes focus on structural alignment and the basics of yoga postures, imparting breathing-exercise techniques, modifications of basic poses, and other yogic building blocks. Vinyasa flow sessions create a dynamic moving meditation by leading students through a progression of poses, transitioning from one asana to the next with careful, balance-challenging movements and breath work to clear the mind of clutter. Instead of bolstering backs with glowing recommendation letters, yogalates classes fortify spines and torsos with yoga poses and the signature isometrics of Pilates.
Colosseum Health & Fitness takes a triple approach to fitness with an armory of strength-training and cardiovascular equipment, personal training from a nationally certified and continually educated staff, and group fitness classes.

To aid diverse fitness goals, the class schedule is peppered with everything from Pilates to cardio kickboxing to the client favorite Hard-Core 50, which targets muscles between the shoulders and hips to improve posture, tighten abs, and keep them securely between the shoulders and hips.
