  • New World Fitness
    The sounds of stretch-induced groans and enthusiastic high-fives echo throughout the workout rooms at New World Fitness, an all-purpose facility that opens its doors to members of any age and fitness level. Though each of the gym?s group fitness classes blends a results-oriented workout with a healthy dose of social interaction, the similarities tend to end there. Toning workouts such as the Ab Blaster target core muscles with short, intense exercises?a marked contrast to the relaxed stretches of a yoga session that slowly eases tension out of overworked limbs. Feet lead the way through aerobics classes based on the movements of martial arts and dance. The gym?s indoor pool hosts an aquatic-therapy program alongside joint-friendly Aquafit classes, after which guests can dry off with a sprint around the indoor track.

  • The Lotus Centre
    The Lotus Centre’s focus on yoga and meditation reflects founder Meranda Squires’ extensive study of holistic health in India. In 1983, Squires travelled to the birthplace of yoga and stayed for 17 years, immersing herself in the practice’s basic tenets. Now, she shares her wisdom during Soma and Hatha yoga classes, each with gentle flows that build strength, agility, and enough flexibility to pat yourself on the head after strapping yourself into a straitjacket. In addition to leading classes, teachers meet with students for one-on-one yoga-therapy sessions that focus on individual challenges, and administer Thai yoga massages that reduce muscle tension through guided stretching. The Lotus Centre also offers retreats that combine yoga with meditation to help participants find inner clarity and direction.

  • Hot Fitness Studio
    At Hot Fitness, transformation can begin in midair. That is, if you attend the trampoline fitness classes. Participants bounce their way to stronger muscles and less flab at the fun, fast-paced class. Another workout that defies gravity: TRX suspension training. Though, there are also many classes that work with gravity. For instance, hot yoga, Pilates, and barre, real Ryder spin class, and Zumba, among many others.

  • Curves for Women
    With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
