True to their studio's name, the staff of Hot Yoga House strive to immerse guests in a comfortable, homey atmosphere. The instructors host classes for all experience levels that bathe bodies in 95- to 100-degree heat, and they complement the warm temperatures with compassionate teachings. Each instructor brings their own character to the sessions, which follow the Barkan method of yoga mixed with elements of Vinyasa and meditation. They blend these styles to help students cultivate strength, flexibility, and personal growth, a feat normally only accomplished by doing handstands on top of a hardcover copy of Arnold Schwarzenegger's Modern Encyclopedia of Bodybuilding.

Although Main Street Strength & Conditioning recently moved to more spacious digs—its new location boasts 7,500 square feet, an upgrade from its previous 1,200-square-foot facility—it hasn't left behind its tried-and-true exercise methods. Kettlebells, battling ropes, tires, and sandbags help exercisers plow through calories in group training classes, personal training sessions, or on-location boot camps. The classes mix strength and cardio work for intense sessions designed to rapidly replace fat with muscle and weak abs with Lego abs.
Minty-green and cool-blue walls set off by polished hardwood floors create a serene setting for reformer- and mat-based workouts led by Pilates instructor Shana Wilson Doyle, who spent nearly a decade honing her Stott Pilates skills.

Specialty Pilates equipment, such as the reformer and the tower, enhance private and semi-private sessions, where Shana guides students through efficient resistance moves and can provide clients with more personalized attention.
