Next Step Fitness' two-trainer team understands that staying healthy does more than just help you look good. Wendy Soto, Next Step founder and lifelong athlete, knows that keeping strong through nutrition and exercise keeps her in shape for her favorite activities. CrossFit Level 1 trainer and police officer Veronica Sandoval works to build her strength, flexibility, and endurance to ensure she can tackle any situation her job throws her way. With that in mind, the duo lead exercise programs that help members slim down and stay active. Members are given 24-hour access to the gym, allowing them to drop in whenever, rather than interrupting the block of time they usually spend winding all the clocks in their houses.

As clients hammer through obstacle courses, kick down freestanding punching bags, and grind through cardio routines, the trainers at B-Fit Bootcamps are there to motivate them every step of the way. Their signature one-hour boot-camp sessions are rigorous, but they dedicate themselves to leaving no camper behind. Instead of watching groups gradually divide between advanced and beginner, they keep everyone equally challenged by modifying exercises to suit virtually any level of fitness.
Deb McCormack wears her fitness inspirations on her sleeve in the fusion classes she teaches at Mind-Body Exercise. Though her routines revolve mostly around Pilates and yoga, she pulls moves from a slew of unconventional styles, such as qi gong, tai chi, belly dancing, functional fitness, and capoeira. No matter the class, she aims to help her students feel mentally centered and focused while building stronger physiques so that they can experience how a bodybuilder feels walking a tightrope. None of her class styles?which also include yoga, boot camp, Pilates, and Zumba?require students to be flexible or, in the case of Zumba, experienced dancers.
During your month-long trial membership at Anytime Fitness ($100), you can re-bloom your wilted health with the state-of-the-art facility's diverse range of cardio and strength equipment. Exploit muscles for non-financial gain with free weights, tone legs on the treadmills, undergo a demanding tour de fitness-center via exercise bikes, or just catch up on reruns of Homeboys from Outer Space on the flat-screen TVs located near the treadmills, ellipticals, and Lifecycle machines. If the flawed workout plan you concocted yourself results only in frighteningly muscular ring fingers, one of Anytime's motivating trainers can prescribe a regimen designed to help you meet your fitness goals during your three personal-training sessions included in your trial membership ($150). Complete the sculpting of your flesh-statue with an Apollo finish with one month of unlimited tanning ($40), and then purify yourself of sweat and fried-cheese memories in Anytime's private showers.
