While critics laud Canadian-imported comedians, crooners, and hockey stars, Canada is also known for the liberal scientific-workout ethics that gave birth to a genetically engineered exercise more useful than square watermelons and seedless squares. Spynga is a hybrid exercise species of Canadian origin that combines the slow, focused poses and stretching of yoga with the heart-thumping intensity of cardio spinning. The two exercises are not performed simultaneously, as severe and violent tangling would be unavoidable; instead, they are performed one after the other. The skilled and motivational instructors at Buddhaful coach students through a stationary-bike session, revving hearts up to a maximum beating point. This calorie-burning workout is immediately followed by a yoga mat session on the studio's expansive hardwood floor. Muscles, joints, and tendons pushed to their limit by the bike session are stretched and relaxed, easing post-workout pain and tension while aiding in the development of core strength. The studio also offers classes that concentrate solely on yoga or spinning if students prefer to master the techniques separately before attempting a double major. Classes are offered daily; check the schedule and call to reserve a space.

Heidi Braun discovered the concept for Thank Dog! Bootcamp in Fitness magazine, and thought it the perfect fit for herself and her high-energy border collie, Maggie. She traveled to beautiful downtown Burbank to check out the program in person, and decided that she wanted to become its ambassador in Ohio. She got her ISSA personal training certification, and began recruiting humans and dogs to join her on her new mission.

During a class, Heidi teaches her students an entire suite of circuit-training exercises designed to be performed outdoors in the natural beauty of parks. Simultaneously, she instructs their canines, training them to respond to nine different commands as issued by their owners. This regimen has the added benefit of teaching pooches to be calm in the presence of other dogs without feeling the need to growl, mark territory, or play poker.

Cleveland Fitness Revolution's head trainers each helm a team of certified instructors that pool their diverse experience and knowledge into helping individual fitness-seekers and corporate clients of all fitness levels get in shape. Eschewing military-inspired practices such as barking orders into a bugle, these motivating instructors incorporate personal-training ideologies and interval training during indoor boot-camp classes. They also help clients shrink waistlines with Cardio Revolution classes, which marry high-intensity interval training with less impactful cardio and core exercises. They don't just teach group classes, however. For those who prefer more one-on-one training, these certified instructors customize workouts that suit the clients' needs and fitness goals during semi-private personal training.

They further bolster the effects of their comprehensive fitness programs with nutrition seminars, recipes, and programs to keep their clients from sliding back into old, unhealthy habits.
