  • Ultimate Bootcamp
    Cofounders Jill Tomich and Peter Lavelle had both been active in the fitness world before they opened Ultimate Bootcamp in 2004. Jill threw her energies into boxing, ballet, yoga, and blogging for a wedding diet-and-fitness website, and Peter, a native Irishman, was a triathlete. In all his pursuits, Peter adhered to the motto "We're not here for a long time?we're here for a good time." This credo infuses all of the boot-camp programs. Campers from all across the fitness spectrum find accommodation as the workouts meet them close to home. Trainers never push too far, but always challenge. An energetic mix of outdoor-resistance and interval training layers patrons in svelte muscle, builds strength, and burns calories to promote weight loss more effectively than a rice cake's PR agent. Far from the stereotypical idea of a boot camp, encouragement and support roll in from instructors who foster cooperation and camaraderie between fellow boot campers.

  • Broga Yoga
    Cofounders Robert Sidoti and Adam O'Neill set out to create a studio tailored to men seeking a workout to improve their stamina and muscle tone while relieving stress, effectively delivering a "much more palatable introduction to yoga at a much more familiar level," as Adam told the Boston Globe. With gentle and vigorously paced classes available, instructors lead students through 60 or 75 heart-pumping minutes of traditional yoga poses, incorporating cardio work and muscle-toning exercises throughout the class to ensure a workout for the entire body, exactly like a game of water polo in wet cement. In addition to helping students to stretch and strengthen their limbs, instructors teach them how to focus their thoughts inward, emphasizing balance between the mind and body, an effort Robert and Adam also take to Broga retreats for fathers and sons or corporate teams.

  • Zumba With Jess
    As one longtime student says, "Jess doesn't care if you have three left feet." And it's probably this supportive and congenial attitude that earned?her spots on?Boston A-List as?Best Zumba Class?and RateYourBurn as one of the??10 Best Zumba Instructors for 2012. She approaches the dance-fitness hybrid sessions as a "feel-happy" workout, helping students of all experience levels feel welcome regardless of their natural rhythm. She only offers drop-in sessions, allowing students to come when it's convenient for them or when they've accidentally?sleepwalked? to the studio again.

  • Moe Wen Fencing Club
    At Moe Wen Fencing Club, visitors are introduced to the exhilarating Olympic sport of fencing with the aid of nine fencing coaches. The feedback in this sport is immediate as each hit or "touch" on the opponent or sparring partner is registered electronically with accompanying light and sound. Each coach specializes in training students of different skill levels, and their training programs?which include lessons, summer camps, and competitive training?are designed to tackle different goals, whether it be moving your body and having fun or learning to salute with a flourish not seen since the production of For Those About to Flourish, We Salute You. And the variety extends to their weapons of choice as well, as they lead classes in dueling with an epee, foil, and saber. To help students hone their strength and reflexes for class, they've stocked the 5,500-square-foot studio with a rowing machine, exercise bike, ping-pong table, and treadmill.
