The voices of certified personal trainers Zach Marcy and Alex Villegas boom across their fitness studio and outdoor parking lots, driving students through the high-intensity exercises of boot-camp classes throughout the week. Drawing from years of personal-training experience, the pair leads imaginative workouts that aim to hurdle students over weight-loss plateaus, adjusting movements to accommodate each student's level of fitness.

The idea of the Buddha getting in a fight might be startling, but the image that Brawling Buddha Studio represents is one where both yoga and martial arts find a home. Atop hardwood flooring, yogis stretch, twist, and pose during classes with the help of longtime yoga instructor Hayley Milks. In a padded area nearby, kids and adults learn karate, muay thai kickboxing, and brazilian jujitsu from seasoned sensei Jimmy Guerrero.
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.

While working as a family practitioner in Miami, Dr. José Suarez often fielded requests from his patients for beauty-bolstering treatments. It drove him to open Pinecrest Medical Spa, a place where he could apply his medical expertise to cosmetic problems.
Each appointment begins with a consultation, where Dr. Suarez determines the ideal course of aesthetics-enhancing action. Unwanted wrinkles, hair, and acne can all be dealt with noninvasively using lasers or collagen-rallying inspirational speeches, while injections of Botox or dermal fillers work beneath the skin to keep countenances smooth.
