Rather than allowing members to fend for themselves on machines like average gym staffers, the trainers at Powerfit Personal Training take more of a hands-on approach to gym workouts, helming group Personal Interval Training sessions replete with workout stations that blend strength, performance, and conditioning exercises. During sessions, trainers dole out encouragement and ensure proper form as members toss medicine balls, lift weights, and paddle on the rowing machine.
The trainers also custom-design workout programs during one-on-one personal fitness-training sessions, which are designed to help trainees break through barriers and achieve specific goals, such as losing weight, gaining muscle, or completing the Boston Marathon in a single lateral jump.

Meanwhile, shiatsu massage chairs stand at the ready, twiddling soothing robot thumbs and waiting to coax tension from tired tendons.

At iCandy Pole Dance Studio, 11 poles await 11 students. The small class sizes ensure that each gal receives individual attention from the seasoned pole-dancing instructors. During group classes and private parties, they teach ladies of all shapes and abilities pole-dancing techniques while helping them forge stronger cores, improve their coordination and flexibility, and boost their self-confidence. In beginner classes, gals get acquainted with pole-dancing basics, which include gracefully pulling yourself up onto the pole. More-advanced tricks include performing inversions, or the Chinese pole technique, and gripping the pole with only the left pinky toe. In addition to leading pole-dancing classes, the instructors motivate women to whip into shape in fitness- and fun-focused hula-hooping and burlesque classes, and to channel their inner divas in chair-dancing sessions.
Club One's clean, eco-friendly facilities furnish fitness fanatics with access to hundreds of weekly classes, as well as pools, saunas, and state-of-the-art cardio contraptions.

Schedules and fitness features vary by location.
