Breathe Pilates and Fitness Studio's experienced instructors coach advanced and casual athletes of all ages with a range of yoga, Pilates, and core fitness classes. With a 10-class pass ($100), students can leap into an extensive schedule peppered with 45- to 60-minute aerobic outbreaks, such as Hot Yoga Pilates Fusion, Cardio Kickboxing, Zumba Dance Fitness, and Turbo Air Guitar. Small group mat classes tailor exercises to each patron's needs, and expectant mothers gently inhale for two during Prenatal Yoga. Students come prepared by arriving with an entourage clutching gym clothes, a yoga mat, water, and towels for tossing to adoring fans.
Fitness 101’s owner and program director, Sean Millhouse, knows how to help clients achieve their fitness goals. An ACE-certified personal trainer for 14 years and co-author of the recent book The Fad Free Fitness Formula, Sean ignites weight-loss regimens with a boot-camp program that gets hearts pumping, muscles lifting, and minds daydreaming of a future in modeling with high-octane, metabolic-based training. The certified trainers apply a two-pronged attack against unwanted weight by supplementing boot camp with nutritional guidance and recipes. Bootcamps are held indoors in an air-conditioned gym, that uses tools such as battle ropes, kettlebells, and suspension trainers.
Sunlight streams into Rising Hearts Yoga Studio through the floor-to-ceiling windows as Hanif Hekima leads a group of familiar faces through an 80-minute class. Hanif, equipped with almost 40 years of yoga experience, has created a peaceful studio in which dedicated yogis further their practice and leave their home-entertainment systems lonely during six-week sessions. Students may attend up to five classes per week, and each session is tailored to students of a similar experience level, creating communities of yogis as they flow through the classes as a group. The studio’s six-week sessions are also punctuated with retreats and workshops that whisk students away to idyllic rolling hillsides and meadows full of bluebonnets for intensive meditation and deepening of yoga forms.
The talented instructors at Twisted Fit believe that the pursuit of fitness shouldn’t be limited to the same old routine or gym. They help students of all fitness levels pump up strength, flexibility, and endurance along with a healthy dose of sex appeal during athletic pole-dancing classes. Students and instructors spin and flip around stationary poles or the studio’s giant beanstalk. The pole-dancing classes come in beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels, and the studio even hosts a co-ed class to help both men and women dance their way toward fitter frames. Though pole dancing is this studio’s bread and butter, the staff of fitness-focused instructors also helps guests reach their goals with Zumba, belly dancing, tap, and jazz classes.
Instructor Cindy Weller?who holds master-level certifications from Pilates Method Alliance and Pilates Academy International?and her team of nationally certified instructors draw on more than 500 hours of training as they lead private and semi-private Pilates classes. Limited class sizes reduce the chance of getting several students who share the name "Agapithe" and let instructors focus on customizing each workout. When teachers aren't leading sports-performance, rehabilitation, or men's classes, they whip physiques into shape with the Redcord suspension system, mat Pilates, reformer Pilates, tower Pilates, yoga, and ballet classes.
Texas Boot Camp Fitness's certified trainers fortify physiques with an ever-shifting compendium of exercises performed in an outdoor setting.

Arms hoist weights, resistance bands stretch between partners, and friendly competitions reveal hidden stores of stamina and strength. Pushing beyond pure leadership of boot-camp classes, instructors supplement workouts with nutritional guidance and lifestyle advice. In the interest of safe and easy mirroring, coaches emphasize clean technique rather than speed or the benefits of cloning.
