Having studied the “gentle art” under the guidance of Carlson Gracie, Brazilian jujitsu champion Joel Tudor takes a wider view of jujitsu. He sees the martial art as more than the physical means to choke, joint-lock, or toss an opponent. Although the discipline can arm its practitioners with these abilities, the art’s more central tenant promotes an overall healthy lifestyle by increasing self-confidence and encouraging clients to break bad habits. In support of this approach, Master Tudor’s instructors imbue children and adults with other health-promoting practices, such as yoga and kettlebell conditioning.

Trapeze High owners David Ayers and his wife, Lindsay Van Voorhis, refer to their trapeze school as a “tribe.” It’s home to a close-knit community of passionate fliers who work together in order to ensure everybody’s safety and development. At least three instructors operate the trapeze rig during classes for beginners, helping novices climb the ladder, attach their safety lines, get ready for takeoff, and execute their first trick. Exhaustive attention also extends to more advanced students, who can hone complicated techniques and learn how to dodge flying squirrels in courses up to Level 5.

Beyond guaranteeing operational safety, David and Lindsay recognize that maintaining a nurturing, supportive community is the best way to help newcomers overcome their fears of flying through midair. To that end, they invite students to bring along their friends and family to cheer them on. They ban the word can’t from the school premises, although they encourage each student to progress through lessons at his or her own pace according to strength, skills, and desire.

The husband-and-wife team also operates the Circus Fund, an outreach program that provides at-risk youth with the chance to experience the circus arts and form support systems with their peers.

Clients saddle up to the stable of whole-body-vibration trainers at Success Wellness's Szone, stepping onto the machines' vibrating platforms as they initiate thousands of tiny muscle contractions across the body. The technology was originally developed to help astronauts to maintain crucial muscle mass while floating around in microgravity, and it now enjoys popularity among celebrities and athletes as a hassle-free way to augment the effects of regular exercise. Success Wellness's entire facility focuses on the vibration exercise, which can give practitioners results in as little as 10-minute sessions three times a week. Regular practice can increase bone density and muscle mass, and the low-impact nature of the exercise makes it ideal for seniors, those with conditions such as arthritis and rheumatism, or fitness-conscious Fabergé eggs.

After years of figure skating, soccer playing, and jazz and tap dancing, co-owners Lori Allen and Jenny Geyser needed a fitness program that developed muscle strength and flexibility without terrorizing their joints. They landed on the Purre Barre method, and after years spent as students, they decided to go pedagogical, teaching others.

In their cozy, mirrored studio practitioners stabilize and stretch limbs on the ballet barre that surrounds the walls before assaulting the abs, hips, glutes and arms with a barrage of small isometric movements. By eliminating jumping by enforcing a strict no-pogo-stick policy, the exercises help bodies prevent undue stress on the joints.
