GroundWorks Gym's name is no accident?the foundational title is a metaphor for the 20,000 square-foot gym's entire fitness philosophy. The center's trainers believe that a solid foundation of not only strength, but also respect for one's body, is the key to success. That's why they buttress their fitness classes with unique sessions centered on healthy movement. For example, Functional Movement Screens can identify athletes' disordered movement patterns and provide corrections to help them avoid injuries and awkward dance-offs, and Primal Move classes help boost mobility and strengthen the body's stabilizing muscles to give bodies a stronger foundation. This foundation comes in handy during the gym's range of intense group classes. CrossFit sessions help athletes of all ages and body types achieve total-body functional fitness with high-intensity routines, which might include performing lunges, squats, and burpees, heaving kettlebells, or lifting weights, depending on the workout of the day (WOD). Experienced martial artists train adults and kids of all levels in the art of muay thai and jiu jitsu, along with leading?of course?foundational classes designed to forge the kind of strength and mobility essential to these disciplines.

Introduced to the community under the name Revolve Aerial Dance, Aerial Arts of Utah changed hands when the original owner moved back to her hometown. It passed to Annie Kocherhans and Deborah Eppstein, two longtime local business owners who loved the exercise form so much that they decided they had to keep the business alive. To help them, they assembled a team of teachers with a slew of qualifications that includes a degree from the New England Center for Circus Arts and a master of fine arts in modern dance. Staffers teach nine classes in the aerial and semi-aerial arts, including courses that focus on the introductory basics, acroyoga, and aerial silks. They also teach the fundamentals to kids aged 7–12 and offer teen-specific classes that cover age-appropriate topics, such as learning how to gracefully catapult into the sunroof of Justin Bieber’s limo. When not instructing aspiring flyers in circus skills, the team performs in cities throughout Utah, demonstrating how to use the trapeze, silks, and the tippy lyra—also known as a flying hoop.

Tiffany Crosswhite’s journey toward becoming a Pilates instructor began, oddly enough, at the Ice Capades, where the lights, music, and graceful glides inspired her to pursue a career as a professional ice skater. As this career progressed, she eventually became a coach for young skaters, constantly hunting for a form of exercise that would help them grow stronger without harming their developing bodies. Thanks to a gift certificate given to her by her mother, Tiffany discovered Pilates and quickly fell in love with the low-impact, powerful-results exercise. In fact, she was so head over heels that she opened her own studio. Beneath a fun, globular chandelier, Tiffany infuses her Pilates routines with conditioning exercises drawn from her years of figure-skating training. She, along with her team of passionate instructors, help students tighten core muscles using mat exercises and the fleet of Pilates machines that line the walls, which include Reformers, Wunda Chairs, and bionic replicas of Joseph Pilates himself.

Some seek Pilates for weight loss or a toned body, and others for stress relief and overall wellbeing. But Erica Lukes was drawn to the mat to recover from a horseback-riding injury in the early '90s. As her pain subsided and her range of motion returned through her practice, she became compelled to help others reap the benefits of the core-strengthening workout, earning her certification as a Pilates instructor, and eventually helming Total Body Pilates. Now, she guides students of all fitness levels through Pilates, ballet barre, and Zumba classes to achieve their fitness and wellness goals. She helps them to build long, lean muscles through mat- and machine-based Pilates, in which students work on a special machine consisting of ropes and pulleys designed to add extra resistance to each movement, resulting in the lithe limbs and toned muscles of a gym cat, the natural predator of the ubiquitous gym rat.

Propulsion Pilates' instructors rely on the familiar Pilates contraptions that fill most studios, but they alter the time-tested workout regimen by incorporating it into a more modern style of circuit training. They combine sequences on the Reformer, Tower, and Wunda Chair with occasional cardio exercises and kettlebell work, creating challenging sessions that manage to refine technique while bolstering strength and flexibility. To keep classes teetering on the cuttingest of edges, the instructors attend at least two Pilates workshops every year to update their mental cache of fitness tricks, but they always leave a little disappointed that a flying Reformer machine appears to be at least another six months off.
