The certified personal trainers at Personal Power Training travel to various fitness studios, clients’ homes, or outdoor locations on a mission to burn the fat off their trainees’ bodies. They call upon years of experience to find the right exercises to help clients see results as quickly as possible and get them motivated to continue until goals are met. In addition to losing weight and building muscle, they also focus on improving sports performances and boost quality of life by relieving pain carried in the back, neck, joints, and gills.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.

Lacy Anderson, the calorie-burning wonder behind Entourage Fitness, knows what the human body is capable of when pushed to its limit. Every month, members at her fitness center enter into the 60-day challenge, completely remaking themselves during a month of intensive, small-group workouts. Gym-goers can avail themselves of four classes, including suspension sessions which use body weight to engineer strength- and flexibility-building exercises. BOSU classes use inflated half spheres to fine-tune balance, while trampoline classes strengthen cardiovascular systems and allow exercisers to see if the rafters need cleaning. RAGE circuit training uses high-impact resistance and weight exercises to jumpstart fat burning and efficiently build muscle.
Bryan Rosenberg, the mastermind behind Empowered: Iron Woman Transformations, leads small groups of passionate women through high-intensity workouts. He uses traditional weight training, martial-arts conditioning, and circuit training to construct 45-minute classes that are designed to spike the metabolism and build strength. Designed for and tailored to women, the classes are fast paced, but scalable to suit any fitness level.
One hour. In the time it takes to watch one prime-time drama, the trained technicians at Pure White Lounge can whiten teeth by up to eight shades. Armed with a hydrogen-peroxide or carbomide-peroxide gel and a safe—yet powerful—LED lamp, the team transforms less-than-white grins into radiant smiles without the cold sterility of a traditional dental office. A rundown of proper aftercare—such as avoiding soda for 24 hours or using only crocheted mouth guards—concludes each treatment, guiding clients to up to two years of whiter and brighter smiles.
