Smiling terra-cotta statues, forever posing, and potted orchids caught in a heliotropic stretch mirror the stillness and intensity inherent in Yoga at Cindy's challenging sessions. Skilled yogis guide groups through hot-yoga classes, sweating out toxins and loose change caught in pores in the 90-degree rooms. Practitioners of all skill levels bend their way through a variety of poses in the 60-, 75-, and 90-minute sessions as the heat helps to keep muscles malleable, improve blood flow, and promote detoxification. Classes include heated Vinyasa-flow that focuses on the synchronization of breath and Yin Yang Yoga, which consists of slower movements. In between classes, the studio is cleaned daily, and deep cleaned every other week to avoid the notoriously judgmental eye of the full and half moons.

Smash Gyms' list of instructors reads like a classified roster for some kind of elite instructor squad. The kickboxing instructor, Sam "The Ram" Spengler beats people insensate as a professional MMA fighter when he's not teaching junior-high students. Michael Jen, a third-degree black belt, engineered his own method of teaching Brazilian jujitsu after practicing the graceful art for 20 years.
What they share is a love of teaching. Jen draws on his wealth of experience studying under renowned teachers such as Roy Harris and Joe Moreira to impart his wisdom and high kicks to students. "The Ram" leads upbeat, fun kickboxing classes to help pupils reach their fitness goals, such as losing weight or being able to roundhouse kick the tempting ice cream offered to them.

In 1976, educator, musician, and kinesiologist Robin Wes longed for a children's gym that prioritized personal growth over competition. Unveiled at a time when physical-education classes pushed students to focus almost exclusively on winning, Robin's program was swiftly adopted and is now used in more than 300 Little Gyms worldwide. Robin still pens original music to accompany lessons, which engage whippersnappers aged 4 months to 12 years with gymnastics, dance, karate, and parent and child activities.
Each of The Little Gym's classes introduces simple movements that sharpen motor skills and set brains whirring, allowing kids to progress at their own pace until they can finally build a computer out of macaroni and glitter. Staff members strive to build a base for lifelong social skills and self-assurance with each exercise, including activities rooted purely in fun, such as summer camps or birthday parties, which helped The Little Gym to earn title of #1 Birthday Chain in Parents Magazine.
