Located across the street from Redmond Town Center, Bikram Hot Yoga Redmond is run by a devoted team of yogis. Walking past cheerful black-and-white striped awnings and into a studio with lots of light and 10-foot ceilings, students get ready to practice 26 traditional asanas on an antibacterial rubber floor. The Bikram system—known for its use of heat in excess of 100 degrees—is designed to work every major muscle and organ system while detoxifying the body and boosting flexibility. A certified instructor teaches every class, including the original 90-minute class as well as the 60-minute condensed class that helps students with packed schedules.
Helping form the basis for a healthy, active, and confident life, Great Play transports kids to a high-tech, interactive arena where they can develop and practice motor and sports skills in a fun, noncompetitive environment. Around the 3,000-square-foot room, eight projectors display everything from interactive games to squads of cheering fans as three tiers of classes—tailored to the key development stages of child growth—impart age-appropriate skills and apply them to playful practice. The first level of classes help children ages 6 months–3.5 years develop locomotor, stability, and manipulative skills, from running and tumbling to throwing, kicking, and reaching top-shelf jars of nutritious vegetables. Kids ages 3.5–5.5 expand their athletic repertoire with basic sports skills such as striking balloons with makeshift tennis rackets, and school-age children graduate to higher-level sports skills, such as throwing balls at simulated bottles, playing floor hockey, and using floor-hockey skills to sweep up broken-bottle simulations.
Koko FitClub’s automated personal-training system rockets both men and women toward fitness goals with 30-minute custom workouts that incorporate cardio and strength training. An initial consultation determines fitness levels and baseline measurements, which Koko’s computerized equipment uses to design a tailored workout plan that precisely measures the weight, pace, and rest time appropriate for each exerciser.
The Koko machines guide exercisers through each workout and adapt as the user’s fitness needs change in order to constantly challenge the body. Designed by professional trainers, workouts maximize the body’s lean-muscle mass, which can boost metabolism and help fight off disease by challenging viruses to kickboxing matches. Exercisers can track their shrinking waistlines and swelling muscles online by analyzing workout scores and comparing individual fitness levels to the Koko FitClub community.
Since its founding in 1987, Living Lite's weight-loss program has helped thousands of people slim down quickly and almost effortlessly.

Clients find themselves exercising regularly and picking more wholesome foods without ever having to think about it consciously. Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis does not induce amnesia, and participants will usually remember everything that happens during the soothing sessions.
