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.

The creators of Paint Nite started their on-location art parties as a creative alternative to a night out with friends. Inspiring people to drink creatively at bars in more than 80 worldwide cities, their events have been touted by New York Magazine as the Best Friend Date and profiled by The Daily Beast. During each two-hour session, participants create a 16x20? reproduction of the night's chosen artwork while sipping a beer, mixed drink, or glass of wine purchased from the bar. Paint Nite provides all other materials, including paint, brushes, canvases, easels, and aprons. Local artists guide participants through each step of the painting process from mixing colors to brush stroke and encouraging creative expression in a supportive, positive atmosphere.

CrossFit Renaissance strives to make renaissance men and women out of its clients, prepping physiques for a broad range of real-life challenges with each day's workout. Coaches Bill Shiffler , Reese Knox, and Ray Decarlo follow the CrossFit credo: intense and highly varied routines that can slide on a scale of difficulty to suit any fitness level and focus on functional movements. However, they differentiate themselves by guiding small groups, limiting attendance so that every student receives personalized guidance. To accumulate evidence for the program's muscle-toning effects, gym members record their daily stats in a training log and conduct regular interviews with their biceps.

Even when Dawn Smelser began the one-year teacher training program at the YogaLife Institute, she never intended to teach?just deepen her understanding of the practice. But just four months in, she started co-teaching the program; eight months in, an anonymous donor funded a scholarship so she could attend the Yoga Institute of Mumbai in India. That was more than a decade ago. Today, Dawn brings these and many other experiences?including her training as an interfaith minister?to MotherHeart Studio, where she teaches alongside Samantha Gowan, a yogi of five years. Together, they lead yoga classes rooted in classical yoga prana flow, kundalini techniques, and the Vinyasa style.
