Hardcore workouts might look impressive on paper, but sustainable fitness routines are usually based on engaging exercises performed in a supportive environment. That's the recipe for success at At Ladies Fitness-Mind, Body & Soul, a women-only aerobic center dedicated to fostering whole-body health. Here, members join a community of like-minded ladies and build camaraderie in one of 20 group fitness classes. Of course, they can also forge a more personal workout relationship during one-on-one sessions with the gym's seasoned trainers. But no matter how they choose to exercise, members benefit from the gym's innovative construction, which includes workout areas with suspended, aerobic flooring designed to cushion and protect joints and muscles.
The certified instructors of Fitness Battalion move CrossFit out of the box and into the urban wild. Their boot-camp classes meet at five parks throughout the city, making use of hills, benches, and playground equipment to support the same exercise moves you might see in a CrossFit gym. Students heft their own bodyweight and run up hills during routines that change constantly, yet remain scalable to any experience level.
They also have a traditional CrossFit gym of their own (called a "box" in CrossFit parlance), where students take on the workout of the day ("WOD") under their coach's supervision. On Ramp courses teach beginners the fundamental movements of the style?such as squats, deadlifts, and presses?and regular group sessions emphasize motivation through camaraderie. To supplement these programs, trainers host private workout sessions, yoga classes, and a running club.

Renee and Cintron know firsthand that it's not enough to simply bring your body to the gym. An effective workout should be driven by positive energy, not a sense of weary obligation. And, ever since losing weight with a Zumba fitness regimen, Cintron has tried to spread this outlook through festive dance.
The instructors lead invigorating classes at RC Fitnez Studio, transforming exercise into a celebratory event. Their Zumba sessions teach groups intuitive dance moves that match up to Latin and world music.

Cintron also hosts Power X 15 classes, which tone muscles with strength-based routines. Specialty classes on the schedule can vary, but may include offerings such as Turbo Kick kickboxing and Identities of Hip Hop.
