Fitness fads are a dime a dozen. So when the Latin-inspired dance-fitness workout Zumba launched in 2001, some fitness pros and Sylvester Stallone enthusiasts probably scoffed. But the workout's continued popularity today proves that it's far from a fad. Newcomers can see for themselves at ZHealth, where owner Michele and her fellow certified Zumba instructors see that the workout is performed correctly. That means constant motion, upbeat music, and lots of burned calories.

When Bryan graduated from college, he was acutely aware of the weight he had put on and the general softness of his body. When he decided to get rid of it, he turned to CrossFit. The program gave him more than he bargained for, transforming him not just into his old, fit self, but into an actual athlete, unlike Bo Jackson. He rode the ensuing wave of inspiration to six different CrossFit certifications—such as weightlifting and gymnastics—acquired all over the country. He then opened his own associate training branch, Longwood CrossFit. Now, using the ever-varying regimen that transformed his own life, he helps students aged 12 to 66 with everything from improving sports performance to shedding stubborn pounds that fear being converted to euros.
