At Pro Dojos, certified martial-arts experts lead students of all ages and skill levels through a variety of pugilistic disciplines. Each location is independently owned, so the martial-arts styles may vary, but many offer karate, tae kwon do, kick-boxing, aikido, and jujitsu classes. The instructors elucidate the noble combat arts to kiddos as young as 4 years old, helping them build strength and motor skills while instilling the values of self-confidence. Teen classes focus on honing discipline and treating yourself and others with respect, and adult classes reinforce cardiovascular conditioning, strength, balance, and coordination. The instructors also lead classes for the whole family, allowing them to bond as a unit, which could possibly lead to starring in a hit sitcom about a crime-fighting family who takes down comical villains in their idyllic suburban neighborhood.

In a hot room covered in Himalayan salt, yoga practitioners strike poses and breathe deep, feeling suddenly as if they have been transported to a waterfall or a mountain top after a rainstorm. Rebirth Yoga studio added Himalayan salt to their hot yoga room because numerous fans credit the coral-hued crystals with releasing negative ions, the same ions that make the air feel so crisp after a rainstorm. Himalayan salt’s negative ions help purify the air and bring it into optimal iconic balance, which is said to restore health and wellness to those who spend time in the salt’s presence. Infrared heat warms the salt room, allowing muscles to relax and become more flexible, as friendly, experienced instructors guide practitioners into each twist and pose. Other classes include room-temperature fitness sessions such as Pilates, dumbbell-assisted yoga, Zumba, and bootcamp.
The studio also offers specialty services focused on childbirth, such as prenatal and childbirth classes, doula services, and fertility yoga. And in addition to leading sessions, instructors train students to become yoga instructors, Yoga Birth Method practitioners, and even doulas themselves.
At Zumba and Fitness with Marica, owner Marica Soleski helps shepherd clients along the path toward healthier bodies and stronger self-image. Group fitness classes hustle, shake, and move during each Zumba session, with Marica calling out and displaying each of the workout’s Latin-inspired dance moves. Clients can also take advantage of All-In Fitness workouts that use fun, low-impact exercises to improve balance, coordination, and agility.
Markville Fitness’s main gym reverberates with a symphony of clinks, whirs, and percussive thuds made by exercise equipment from Precor and Life Fitness. There are more than 15,000 square feet dedicated to helping clients cultivate healthy lifestyles and eventually beat their uncles in holiday arm-wrestling matches. In addition to a hot-yoga studio, an aerobics area houses group classes that range from salsa-based cardio to group cycling.
Though members can opt to work out solo, there are also personal trainers ready to tailor workouts to help clients reach specific fitness goals. Afterwards, they can swing by the juice bar to refuel with protein shakes or Gatorade. During workouts, parents can drop their kids off in the daycare studio, which the staff painted in reds, yellows, and purples before furnishing it with plenty of toys and a TV.
