During 20 years of industry experience, Nick and Sharon Osborne have witnessed countless gym members lose interest in monotonous workouts and detached trainers. To combat exercise lethargy, they founded Go: Fitness, a center that focuses on functional training and attentive service. Either Nick or Sharon is always onsite to oversee their coaching staff during group classes and free monthly one-on-one sessions for members.
The gym's equipment—kettlebells, battling ropes, sledgehammers, and machines such as the Power Plate—complements routines that mimic real-life movements and strengthen muscles through natural actions. To round out their wellness goals, members receive access to nutrition and fitness software that helps them plan healthful meals without going to the trouble of hacking into the Food Network's mainframe.
The encouraging shouts of Nathan Jordan and his band of fellow certified trainers echo off the bright-green walls of the Jackhammer Strength Training studio, overpowering the clatter of weights and the huff of exercisers. Pulling from their own unique styles and approaches to exercise, each of the five seasoned instructors lead boot camp and personal-training sessions, guiding students of all fitness levels as they grapple with free weights, kettlebells, and suspension straps. The trainers encourage healthy lifestyle beyond the studio by teaching students tricks for improving their diets, such as which low-calorie snacks are most filling, and which greens can make you punch through walls.

Resounding kicks and punches ring out across Equivita's 3,000-square-foot private studio as seasoned boxing instructor Christopher Yeoman uncovers six-pack abs in 60-minute Kick Ass Cardio classes. The sessions, which take place multiple times a week, lead fit-seekers through a high-intensity series of punches, kicks, and fast-paced boxing maneuvers designed to build strength, defeat stress, and teach participants how to land blows on punching bags without risking injury. Yeoman's full-body workout blends speed training, mixed martial arts, and strength building, resulting in figures slim enough to fit through a doggie door.

Though its name may conjure fantasies about sprinting down crowded streets or bench-pressing buses stalled in traffic, Urban Active Fitness grants its members abundant space in which to spread out and follow their workout proclivities. At dozens of locations across the Midwest and South, members can sculpt their bodies in whichever manner they choose—from personal training with resistance machines and free weights to group classes in cycling, Zumba, and Pilates. A number of group classes draw on the gym’s urban theme for inspiration. Urban Iron, for example, focuses on building muscles that resemble the cast-iron beams of skyscrapers, and Urban Yoga closely imitates the poses necessary to squeeze onto a subway train at rush hour.
The ample hands-on experience that Aveda Institute's students receive in cosmetology, hair styling, and skincare is only one part of their extensive training. Even as these burgeoning professionals master more advanced techniques, their instructors work to impart a sense of social and environmental responsibility. These are the tenets of founder and environmentalist Horst M. Rechelbacher, whose vision of living in sync with nature led to Aveda's botanically based products for hair and skin.
At the institute, students cull knowledge from industry experts through extensive practical training under the supervision of mentors. Stylists learn how to cut hair and soothe stress with complimentary mini facials, makeup touchups, and horn sharpening. Future aestheticians restore balance to faces and bodies with relaxing skincare treatments.
To connect with both the local and global community, students also apply their efforts toward charity events such as Earth Month. This campaign helps raise funds for the Sierra Club, who in turn uses the donations to help protect sources of clean water worldwide. The Institute is also hosting an upcoming fashion benefit show on April 23, with procedes going to the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Columbus.
