My Gym’s nurturing fitness experts coach classes that help make fitness enjoyable and promote positive self-image for kids ranging from 6-week-old dumplings to 13-year-old sprouts. The Little Bundles course begins the adventures for the youngest age set, featuring introductory stimulation, baby-safe rides, and parental discussion on appropriate development and whose infant can do the best burrito impression. Parental involvement continues during the series of three age-appropriate classes for tykes up to 3.25 years, which involve interactive songs, choreographed dance, and puppet shows at the spacious facility. Older children attend sessions independently, sliding on scooters, tumbling on mats, and learning to swing on the parallel bars while eating bananas handed out by the monkeys that emerge from the wall mural when no adults are looking. Lifetime membership lasts until age 13, and unlimited free play lets youngsters burn off energy during unstructured frolicking.
Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing With the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 500 calories with each go-round.

Trainers empower their students with healthy eating guidelines to keep motivation high outside of class.
During one-on-one sessions, certified personal trainers plan out tailored fitness programs, which clients can take with them to Dynamic Performance’s gyms to continue shaping up on their own.
Though its name may conjure fantasies about sprinting down crowded streets or bench-pressing buses stalled in traffic, Urban Active Fitness grants its members abundant space in which to spread out and follow their workout proclivities. At dozens of locations across the Midwest and South, members can sculpt their bodies in whichever manner they choose—from personal training with resistance machines and free weights to group classes in cycling, Zumba, and Pilates. A number of group classes draw on the gym’s urban theme for inspiration. Urban Iron, for example, focuses on building muscles that resemble the cast-iron beams of skyscrapers, and Urban Yoga closely imitates the poses necessary to squeeze onto a subway train at rush hour.
