Though its name may conjure fantasies about sprinting down crowded streets or bench-pressing buses stalled in traffic, Urban Active Fitness grants its members abundant space in which to spread out and follow their workout proclivities. At dozens of locations across the Midwest and South, members can sculpt their bodies in whichever manner they choose—from personal training with resistance machines and free weights to group classes in cycling, Zumba, and Pilates. A number of group classes draw on the gym’s urban theme for inspiration. Urban Iron, for example, focuses on building muscles that resemble the cast-iron beams of skyscrapers, and Urban Yoga closely imitates the poses necessary to squeeze onto a subway train at rush hour.
Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing With the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 500 calories with each go-round.
Founded in 1974, Yoga East has spent nearly four decades guiding visitors along the path to mental serenity and physical wellness. The nonprofit educational organization holds more than 75 classes a week at three Louisville studios, inviting guests of all fitness backgrounds to flow through the tableaux of multiple yoga disciplines. Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, and gentle yoga cull tension from muscles and foster flexibility. Classes can accommodate skill levels from gentle to advanced by modifying maneuvers and demanding that the tree and mountain poses be performed atop their namesakes.
Each Yoga East instructor has earned certification from Yoga Alliance. Their collective expertise enables the studios to offer teacher training as well as workshops, community events, and additional fitness courses, such as Pilates.
Powerhouse Gym Louisville fortifies fitness routines with an all-encompassing roster of exercise essentials sprawled across a 17,000-square-foot facility. Beneath its towering ceilings, dumbbells weighing up to 150 pounds headline a robust fleet of weightlifting gear, and treadmills and ellipticals from brands such as Cybex and Precor lead a fitness army comprising 40 cardio machines. In addition to its solo workout stations, the gym staffs certified trainers who pilot a weekly roster of group classes, chiseling muscles and burning fat during spirited boot-camp classes and Power Hour classes. Powerhouse Gym further bolsters workouts with onsite massages, custom training and nutrition plans, free WiFi, and words of encouragement whispered exclusively in sonnets.
Core Pilates' staff of former ballet dancers, registered nurses, and physical therapists discovered Pilates in various ways, but having experienced its health benefits firsthand, they've joined forces to share their knowledge of the rehabilitative, low-impact exercise. Mat, reformer, and barre group classes tone cores seven days a week, and seasonal instruction in hoop fitness, yoga, and VertiMax add new flavors to exercise routines. Serious practitioners can seek teacher certifications, which are spiced with a liberal helping of anatomy and medical science, essential for helping students recover from injuries from disastrously ambitious toe-touches.
