When a car accident broke Jen McWalter’s back, she didn’t know it. She only discovered it years later, when she had a sudden back spasm during a dance class. Healing such an old injury was challenging, but with a Pilates-infused physical-therapy routine, Jen’s spine gradually returned to working order. Since then, Jen has not just practiced Pilates—she also earned her Gold Certification from the Pilates Method Alliance, and founded her own 3,000-square-foot Pilate studio. For the past decade, she and her team have led equipment and mat sessions there, teaching techniques from basic breath work to the one-armed planks needed to work out while tweeting a tribute to Joseph Pilates.

When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. MetaBody created a real-life version of that ticket with the MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.

At Fight2Fitness, students learn how to throw a punch from Rich Gingras, a two-time Golden Gloves champion in Vermont and New England, and two-time Rocky Marciano champion, and the only amateur to win a National Championship in the history of New Hampshire. Rich, who also participated in season four of The Contender, teaches alongside his wife Alyssa, who is an exercise physiologist with a master's degree. It's not just punching, though. Clients also learn the technical side of boxing, such as footwork and where to punch a person to make them your friend, as they blast between 600 and 800 calories per class. If the classes aren't enough of a workout for you, Fight2Fitness also stages boot-camp classes and personal-training sessions.
