The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.

The thwack of fists and feet against sparring pads has resounded across the hardwood floors of The Boxing Club's private studio for more than a decade. Cardio and strength-training equipment whirs beside a forest of red and black punching bags, while bright lights spotlight a roped-off arena for pugilistic punch-em-ups. Facing off against the studio's towering mirrors, certified instructors lead more than 250 classes each month—from martial arts and workouts infused with fighting techniques, to more traditional fitness classes, such as boot camps, cross training, and spinning classes that simulate riding 19th-century chain and gear powered horses. After classes, members can get road-ready in the full service locker rooms with free towels, saunas, and private showers.
To give potential clients an idea of his coaching chops, Basheer Abdullah need only tell the story of Claressa Shields. Shields was the first American woman to win an Olympic gold medal for boxing in 2012 and Basheer coached the woman's boxing team that year. In fact, he has served as an Olympic coach four times in total, and two of those tours have resulted in gold medals.
But people of all fitness levels can benefit from Basheer's impressive credentials, whether they want to lose weight or simply get healthier. He travels to homes, private gyms, and neighborhood parks to lead single students as well as small groups through workouts inspired by boxing techniques. And, though being trained by an Olympic coach could sound daunting to some, he prefers not to intimidate his clients, motivating them with positivity and support and not by shouting or sewing them up inside punching bags.
