With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

With 38 years of teaching experience and a certified national examiner for Dance Masters of America in tap, ballet, jazz, acrobatics, and modern, owner and instructor Kathi Nallia expertly guides students through the mysteries of movement. Aspiring hoofers of any age may enroll in a number of classes, whether it’s for improving energy and flexibility or saving the local summer camp from foreclosure in a marathon dance-off. Students are welcome to explore the expressive grace of ballet, jazz, or tap in the Adult Dance class, land a leading role with instruction in the Musical Theatre Training course, or show a toddler the basics of rhythm in Artistic Tots. Nallia's considerate dance instructors will patiently work with students of all kinds, whether they're competitive tap dancers or haven't danced since Bob Dole's "The Funkadelic-In-Chief" presidential campaign. Walk-ins are not accepted, as the instructor registers students on a first-come, first-served basis. Different classes are available six days a week. Call ahead for schedules.

Q&A with Megan Thieman, Co-owner

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

Each month we run a challenge to keep clients coming in, such as coming to class 25 times in one month to earn a free T-shirt. We change each class, so if you go to a specific class more than once that week, it will be different. Also, we have a variety of classes, so if our clients don't like one style, there are many more from which to choose.

Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?

Free monthly measurements occur every month to show improvements and body change. We also offer help with nutrition guidance.

Do you run your gym according to a particular exercise philosophy?

We call ourselves a fitness boutique. We offer a variety of classes with fun, energetic, and motivational instructors that keep clients having fun and laughing while sweating and burning calories all in one awesome hour.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Sweat studio comes with a warning label: it becomes an addiction. We have a very welcoming environment and offer a variety of classes suitable for both beginning and advanced students.

Jordan Ryan was so taken with Ashtanga yoga that she began teaching to share the practice with others. She instills the ancient discipline, which is known for its mindful movement, meditation, and breathing patterns that bring about harmony between mind, spirit, and body. During classes, she introduces what's known as Ashtanga's eight-limb system to new students and creates more challenging sessions for advanced students?though stopping short of demanding that they grow four more limbs.

Enamored with holistic healing from a young age, Inner Wisdom's owner Billie Tobin, along with a dedicated team of trained staffers, customizes wellness services aiming to detoxify any harmful impurities while balancing clients' minds, bodies, and spirits. During the one-hour massage, psyches can drift off into a peaceful place as a trained massage guru employs modalities from one of four techniques, including prenatal or lymphatic muscle-kneads. The Swedish massage pampers sinews with long, soothing strokes, and the deep-tissue treatment zeroes in on specific points of concerns with firm pressure, relieving knotted backs and unwinding sore shoulder blades tightly corseted together.

Though the exercise equipment at Gold’s Gym beeps and whistles just outside the Ringside Fitness boxing classroom, the focus of Ringside’s students is set on the punching bags before them. Over the thwack of fists and feet hitting the bags, an instructor calls out instruction and motivation, drawing insight from years of training and experience in the ring.

On other days, it’s professional boxers or martial-arts experts lead students through techniques and conditioning exercises. In addition to Ringside’s training classes, the instructors conduct lessons dedicated to self-defense, competition tactics, and how to punch pizza dough to make a crisp, flaky crust.
