  • Go Cycle Studios
    Upon entering Go Cycle Studios, it might feel like you?ve accidentally walked into a club: hip-hop, rock, and dance music streams from the expansive sound system, reverberating off the exposed brick walls and polished concrete floors. The cycling and fitness center?s owners, Jimmy and Lisa, use this atmosphere to set the mood, but they?re serious about exercise. They and the other instructors tailor spin classes and other fitness programs to challenge riders of all levels, from beginners to those who want to work up to jumping a police barricade. Under their instruction, riders sweat astride Keiser stationary bikes, each outfitted with monitors that display RPMs, heart rate, approximate calorie burn, and miles covered. Before or after class, students can head to the back patio to sip coffee in the fresh air or furtively discuss ways to hasten the comeback of handlebar streamers.

  • Arthur Murray Dance Studio
    Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and The Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, The Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.

  • Michigan's Adventure Boot Camp for Women
    Each boot camp spans four weeks of exercise, with classes held up to five days a week. Classes might meet indoors or out, depending on which of the nine locations a client chooses to attend, but the regimen of exercise remains the same. Trainers cook up new routines daily, which might include fitness kickboxing, jump-roping, obstacle courses, or sport yoga, in which the class plays a scrimmage using the first student who manages to contort themselves into the shape of a football.

  • Pulse Fitness
    With its open floor plan, graffiti-style artwork painted on the walls, and aerial rigs hanging from the ceiling, it's clear that Pulse Fitness Training is no ordinary gym. Clients can find all the classic cardio and strenth-training equipment they'd see in a traditional fitness center, but can also work out with functional equipment such as tractor tires and battle ropes out on the floor. Aerial silks and hoops can be climbed to build upper body strength or to finally impress old elementary gym coaches. There's also a host of small group fitness classes led by certified instructors, ranging from TRX training to yoga and cardio barre sessions. After the workout, gym goers can head over to Pulse's nutritional shake bar, where a staff member will whip up a fresh protein shake to help replace burned energy.

  • Living Tradition Yoga
    At Living Tradition Yoga, instructors honor the rich tradition and teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar. Developed in the 1970s, the Iyengar style of yoga emphasizes precise body alignment, a specific sequence of postures, and a deep connection between body and mind. At Living Tradition Yoga, director Chris Briney cultivates a space for physical exploration, and draws from an extensive academic study of the form and Guruji Iyengar’s teachings. Props such as blankets, yoga blocks, and straps can be used to help adjust poses, or can be tied together to play group jump rope at the end of class. The school also offers training intensives with certified Iyengar instructors, as well as workshops such as “‘Power Yoga’ Redefined” and “Fly the Friendly Skies-Inversion Workshop.”

  • CrossFit BMW: Benchmark Workouts
    Even CrossFit pros have a least favorite move. For CrossFit BMW: Benchmark Workouts coach Christopher Binno, it’s the box jump. Binno knows how effective routines with his least favorite move can be, though, because he took up CrossFit to become a better wrestler; and it worked. He and fellow coach Jarrod Bell—who has 25 years of fitness and coaching experience as well as CrossFit and Olympic lifting certifications—lead the center’s classes, which consist of an ever-changing high-intensity routine of functional movements that quickly whittle the body into shape. They also teach Fundamentals classes, which teach first-timers to perform core CrossFit moves and the basic dance steps from the Scarface stage musical.
