Healthy Inspirations’ weight-loss programs help women shed pounds by tweaking everyday routines. Throughout each four-week course, trained weight-loss experts oversee a diet metamorphosis, helping clients reshuffle priorities in lifestyle planning, balance old habits with new ones, and resist the lilting songs of sentient pound cakes. Thrice-weekly one-on-one coaching sessions teach clients how to replace food faux pas with nutritionally sound selections, and expert-advised workout regimens combat stresses that lead to overeating. Before-and-after measurements help track progress, and nutrition plans and easy-to-follow cardio workouts reestablish control over fitness and help clients self-monitor progress. Like a street luge drawn by cheetahs, Healthy Inspirations' program gets off to a fast start, with many clients dropping between three and six pounds in the first three days.

The sky's the limit at Flying Buddha Fitness. Or, perhaps more appropriately, the ceiling is. Aerial yoga is one of the fitness studio's specialties, and challenges students to perform traditional yoga moves while suspended in fabric hammocks that are attached to the ceiling. It sounds both exhilarating and exhausting, but the method is actually quite accessible for students of all fitness levels. The hammocks are hung close to the ground, so beginners can feel safe as they
learn how to use the fabric to maneuver in-and-out of poses, support their body weight, and make old workout clothes feel stylish again, while experienced aerial yogis can work their way up to performing acrobatic maneuvers such as inversions and flips.
Of course, Flying Buddha has plenty of classes for those who prefer to stay on the ground as well. The schedule features everything from meditative vinyasa yoga sessions to upbeat turbo kick and piloxing classes. And, although challenging workouts abound, the studio maintains a family-friendly vibe, as evidenced by its array of youth classes and Friday night family fitness sessions.
You could charter a plane to Venice to bike through the winding streets or fly to the Grand Canyon to cycle around rugged mountains. Or you could hop on a MyRide bike at Cycle Cross Spin Boutique, which equips riders with virtual software that lets them cycle anywhere in the world without leaving the studio.
The high-tech bikes are just one of the draws of the intimate workout hotspot founded by twin sisters and fitness enthusiasts Patty and Sherry Norcross. Another draw: the wealth of cycling classes, including Spin Core 40/10, which features a high-intensity core workout, and Spin Climb, which builds endurance and muscles with high-resistance training.
When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. MetaBody created a real-life version of that ticket with the MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.
If variety is the spice of life, then Yoga & Fitness Passport is a veritable East Indian Trading Company. The outfit curates some of the highest reviewed fitness studios throughout both Canada and the U.S. From there, they issue passports that give exercisers a chance to jump from yoga to Zumba to pole dancing classes, all at different studios. Rather than having to navigate each gym's scheduling site, guests can find and sign up for sessions through the Yoga & Fitness Passport site. From there, folks just need to show their confirmation on a smart phone or wood etching, and it's off to the races.
