BreakThru Fitness's ACE-certified personal trainer, Adam Campbell Jr., leads exercisers through private 30-minute training sessions that help add momentum into fitness regimens. After discerning clients’ current fitness levels, Campbell designs customized workout routines that help exercisers reach their fitness goals—whether its to build muscle, tone their core, or power their house with a human-size hamster wheel. Through instruction on proper exercise techniques and help with diet planning, instructors build up habits for patrons to incorporate into their lifestyle while motivating them to get over the plateaus that may discourage them. Clients can bring a friend to personal-training sessions to create a symbiotic workout-buddy relationship, much like how oxpecker birds prevent rhinoceros from eating too much ice cream.

Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing with the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 500 calories with each go-round.
