Trapeze School New York’s expansion west meant Angelenos no longer had to cross the country to join the circus. At their outdoor studio on the Santa Monica Pier, highly trained instructors teach beginner, intermediate, and advanced maneuvers during classes on the flying trapeze, aerial silks, lyra, trampoline, and Spanish web. All of Trapeze School New York’s countrywide facilities in New York, Boston, Washington, DC, Chicago, and LA hold themselves to high safety standards that account for everything from equipment to instructors and safety belts. In an effort to bring their flying-trapeze instruction to surrounding communities regardless of funding, the school also gives lessons through their nonprofit branch of operations.

At Reading Athletic Club, firm yet friendly trainers and modern equipment from brands such as Nautilus whip exercisers into shape. Personal trainers stage workouts in the cardio deck and weight area, packed with weight machines, treadmills, elliptical machines, and other mechanisms that foster fitness. Ladies break a sweat in the women's only section while youngsters play with babysitters. During fitness classes, instructors help boost their students’ endurance via high-energy boot camps that tighten all areas of the body or the flowing poses of yoga. After workouts, students can unwind under the soothing strokes of the center's massage therapist.

With classes in several yoga styles taught by certified instructors, Yoga Moves helps forge stronger, healthier, more flexible bodies. Hot yoga, Vinyasa, and Pranavayu yoga classes are held in a heated room to warm and relax tight muscles, which can allow for deeper stretching and toxin release while helping to protect the body from injuries to the ligaments, muscles, or proboscis. Unheated classes, such as Yin yoga, target connective tissues, promoting flexible muscles and bendable joints. Classes stress individual progress and leave the measure of success to one's own personal improvement, so yoganauts of every skill level can reap the benefits of yoga without judgment or intimidation. Students should plan to bring a sizable water bottle, a large towel, a yoga mat (or rent one for $1), and an empty stomach; click here to see a schedule of current class offerings.

To help women achieve their fitness goals, the certified personal trainers at Get In Shape For Women focus on four areas: weight training, cardio training, nutrition, and accountability. In small group sessions, trainers modify exercises to suit up to four ladies' fitness levels, beginning by calibrating strength-training sessions—such as free weights, lunges, and squats—to each client's abilities while still ensuring they are challenging themselves. Then comes high-intensity cardio interval-training sessions in which trainers encourage exercisers to achieve optimal results on the treadmill or elliptical.

The trainers supplement the group workouts with nutritional planning centered around the concept of eating six small, balanced meals six days a week. They set aside the seventh day as a "free day" for a bit of indulgence, be it eating a favorite sweet or lusting openly after bacon. To hold their women accountable, trainers talk nutrition on the floor during scheduled appointments, and the ladies' progress toward reaching their goals is measured by trainers each week.

The YMCA keeps residents healthy and engaged in more than 10,000 neighborhoods across the country, but it traces its American origins to the streets of 19th-century Boston. Here, Thomas Valentine Sullivan carried on the mission started in London by George Williams: providing affordable recreation and residence to young men from cities and country towns alike. Over the last century and change, the organization's mission changed to keep pace with the evolving times; today, the YMCA of Greater Boston welcomes anyone interested in furthering the causes of "youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility."

This modern mission combines the Y's signature programming with new initiatives designed to keep citizens one step ahead of an ever-changing world. Members stay fit and active with everything from organized sports and fitness classes to lifeguard, CPR, and first aid lessons. But the Y's developmental programs go far beyond bodily strength; their enrichment and leadership courses equip youths with the confidence needed to take charge in their everyday lives, and ESL classes help newcomers to English embark on the next step of their linguistic lives.

Treadmills, stationary bikes, weights, stair-climbers—most gyms are packed with equipment just like this. What makes Elite Fitness Center unique is that every membership also comes with a team of certified trainers who help each person get the most out of each workout. To begin, trainers assess personal fitness levels and use that data to apply the best methods for losing weight, improving stamina, and building enough muscle to open any jar. Their customized programs achieve that through cardio and resistance training as well as in-depth nutritional counseling. Elite also hosts kickboxing and karate classes, giving participants several group-oriented approaches to fitness.
