Brick City Health & Fitness combines exercise with pampering. Personal trainers supervise clients as they pull weighted cables, curl free weights, and work out on machines. For those interested in group training, multiple fitness studios host Zumba, Pilates, and functional fitness classes. But post-workout, the pampering begins. A heated whirlpool and a red-cedar dry sauna help clients relax, and an onsite full-service salon with facials and massages furthers the spa-like experience.

Body Club's trainers help produce healthier, more athletic members using every inch of their 23,000-square-foot studio. They work up sweats in one-on-one sessions on machines and also lead group fitness classes in a 3,800-square-foot studio that's big enough for no one to notice that one guy doing the chicken dance during Zumba. As a team, they teach everything from TRX and Pilates to coed pole-dancing classes. But the gym also keeps the important things in mind: child-care services are available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., helping parents make more time for workouts.

Directly across from the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute, the spacious Orlando Fitness Center hosts group exercise classes as well as one-on-one private training sessions. You'll find all the tools necessary to get into shape here, from free weights and body balls to barbells and resistance bands. But it's the little things that truly set the center apart. For one thing, instructors lead group classes while wearing microphones so that students don't have to strain their ears or read lips to get fit. For another, the team stocks plenty of bottled water, energy drinks, and snacks to keep visitors fueled throughout workouts.

CrossFit Lions Den offers different workouts every day, keeping both members and their muscles guessing. On any given day, people toss weighted medicine balls in the air, swing kettlebells to-and-fro, and jump onto wooden plyometric boxes. They also climb ropes and hang from Gymnastics rings. Each workout will contain some form of Olympic-style weightlifting, the cornerstone of Crossfit. Certified trainers tailor each exercise to ensure that members of all athletic abilities avoid injuries while remaining challenged. Classes are designed to have you out the door in an hour, roughly the same time it takes to floss.
