As they enter the training at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby, trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.

Club One's clean, eco-friendly facilities furnish fitness fanatics with access to hundreds of weekly classes, as well as pools, saunas, and state-of-the-art cardio contraptions. Over the course of the week-long membership, the only limiting factor to how many workout sessions you attend, including spinning, kickboxing, aqua fit, Pilates, and 12 types of yoga, is the tendency of the human body to catch on fire from sustained friction. Schedules and fitness features vary by location.

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.

Nestled in the center of West Oakland, YogaLove Oakland is a community-centered yoga studio that believes in small class sizes and personalized attention. Its certified instructors offer everything from classes teaching the basics of yoga to sessions for moms-to-be and advanced students. Owner and director Treina Alexander, an RYT-500 instructor, leads a team of RYT-200 and RYT-500 teachers whose styles focus on different aspects of yoga such as flow, meditation, heart opening, gentle movement, and energy flow. In a Level 2 class, yogis practice more challenging poses and breathing skills, while in Level 3 classes, they gain strength and flexibility with a focus on breathing and visualizing themselves as a rubber band. Everything students need for class is provided, including filtered water, yoga mats, and a hand towel, and YogaLove Oakland is only three blocks from the West Oakland BART station.

Getting a workout can mean different things to different people. FLEX hopes to accommodate all of them by offering a broad range of workout choices and opportunities to get in shape. Inside the gym, separate areas stocked with cardio equipment, free weights, and strength-training machines allow members to exercise at their own pace. For those seeking a bit more professional guidance, the gym's supportive personal trainers design fitness regimens tailored to individual needs and goals. Even more variety is available in the form of group classes. Spinning sessions get pulses racing, brows sweating, and brains calculating the circumference of a bike wheel. Zumba and Bollywood-inspired classes turn simple, dance-based choreography into engaging cardio workouts. And, for those who prefer a calming, core-stabilizing workout, the instructors even lead mat Pilates sessions in addition to Hatha and Vinyasa yoga classes.
