East Coast Fitness’s 20,000 square feet house separate rooms for martial arts, spinning, group workouts, massages, and general exercise. On the main floor, strength-training machines, cardio machines, and free weights occupy separate areas, with additional room sectioned off for stability ball exercise and a herd of eight punching bags. Certified trainers and instructors also lead more than 15 classes that range from spinning and Pilates to yoga, kickboxing, agility training, and Zumba. In the lobby, a juice bar refreshes hungry athletes and a separate room offers free childcare.

Stacy draws from more than 17 years experience in outdoor fitness training when leading her classes atop the pavement and under the trees of New York City parks. Using a background in tae kwon do, capoeira, kickboxing, and boot-camp drills, Stacy creates high-intensity routines that combine cardio and strength exercises that can be adjusted for various fitness levels. She forgoes fancy machines and instead uses the environment, sculpting strong arms with 15-pound weights brought in by clients or wiping sweat from the brow with a nearby leaf.
Stacy doesn’t just stay active through boot-camp instruction: She also leads an active lifestyle speaking at workshops and corporate events. Furthermore, she contributes articles to the Huffington Post, leads retreats, and teaches fitness while traveling to international locales, such as India.
La Femme Fitness & Dance was created by women as a flirty alternative to monotonous fitness regimes, helping their fellow ladies unleash their inner vixens while whipping them into shape. The studio’s supportive instructors conquer inhibitions and liberate muscles with workouts that unite pole dancing, sensual movement, and fitness techniques to strengthen both minds and bodies. Through classes including pole dancing, butt-shaping booty camp, and exotic-dance classes, they help women hone their self-confidence and sculpt fitter frames in all the right places—upper bodies, waists, and thighs—without losing their curves. The instructors disguise elements of yoga, Pilates, and resistance training within their sultry dance routines, which are inspired by techniques from ballet, belly dancing, and the re-shelving motion of librarians.
In addition to flirty fitness classes, the instructors host pole-dancing parties, livening up bachelorette parties and girls night out. They encourage partygoers to don stilettos, costumes, and props as they slink around poles and light fires of desire with exotic dance moves.

Certified personal trainer Kimora Link fights inactivity with compassion. Whether he's leading a group boot-camp class or a private workout, he exemplifies patience, thoroughly explaining each exercise and helping his clients to properly position their bodies. He adheres to "progression philosophy"—the belief that everyone should build muscle at their own pace, instead of syncing their reps to underdog-movie training-montage scenes. His programs, therefore, accommodate all ages and fitness levels. With calisthenics courses, six-week wellness regimens, and youth conditioning plans in his fitness arsenal, he helps to motivate clients to adopt long-term healthy habits.
When people think of a boot-camp instructor, the image of a whistle-wielding drill sergeant often comes to mind. Nicole Cea McDermott shatters this stereotype with one graceful swing of a kettlebell. The owner of Healthy Balance NYC and a veteran dancer, McDermott's gentle, dedicated approach to exercise trades intimidating barks for individual attention and a sense of humor that sets even the most stoic medicine ball at ease. Participants set monthly goals for themselves and then build their strength and endurance during sessions including coed boot camps, women-only early-bird boot camps, and Saturday-morning boot camps set at picturesque Riverside Park.

They cultivate a community vibe, encouraging clients to view themselves as healthy, dynamic, and powerful people even when their capes are at the cleaners.
