The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 5 or 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
The 360 Energy in Motion teaching method goes beyond mere instruction. Each trainer creates a class atmosphere where all in attendance feel physically challenged and emotionally engaged with the workout and one another. The trainers hope to spread this feel-good vibe throughout their music-driven spin classes, Zumba dance-cardio workouts, Pilates routines, and yoga sessions. They hold each class within a facility boasting textured wood flooring, green earth tones, and bamboo-lined hallways where orb lights cast an incriminating light on sneaky pandas looking for a snack.

The studio also supports clients' inner and outer well-being with more traditional approaches, including Zumba, burlesque, and chakra-meditation classes as well as a range of soothing spa services.
Channeling a background in dance, event planning, and fitness, Deanna Gonzalez knows how to make a workout feel like a party. She founded Miami Dance House as a way to synthesize the supportive atmosphere of exercise and the creative expression of a dance studio into a single venue. There, students banish calories and inhibitions with a curriculum of classes that caters to nearly any taste. Instructors of each class hope to build their students' rhythm and confidence—regardless of each person's experience level.
Zumba instructor Anais Sori asks that her students bring four things with them to each class: comfy shoes, comfy clothes, a water bottle, and a smile. The last one comes naturally in Sori’s Latin dance-derived Zumba classes, because she emphasizes fun and promotes high-energy movements—to her, every class is a party. Beneath the dance moves lies the classes' practical purpose: each dancer burns calories and boosts his or her cardiovascular fitness.
