Though he named his business after the Greek word for discipline, Tommy Holmes believes that exercisers require more than that to sustain a fitness regimen—they also need variety and a shared sense of community. Tommy prioritizes functional exercises such as weightlifting and gymnastics techniques. He acquaints his clients with kettlebells, resistance bands, and medicine balls, outfitting the most advanced students with Batman-like utility belts that hold all three.
In addition to resistance routines, his workouts incorporate team-based drills and games to amuse as well as challenge participants. After teaching fundamental maneuvers and safety through his basics course, Tommy hosts group classes. He also crafts customized fitness and nutrition plans during personal-training sessions to help clients achieve personal goals, such as becoming the first person to run a backwards three-minute mile.
Within their cozy brick studio situated along the Royal River, yoga instructors Tori Norton and Cathleen Wasielewski infuse their students with the same sense of serenity that pervades their surroundings.

Each vigorous one-hour session targets many of the body's key muscle groups, leaving practitioners cleansed, energized, and able to levitate for up to 15 minutes after class.
