Regardless of skill level, Lynette Allen, RN, and her staff at Transformation Pilates Studio welcome any students looking to improve their strength or flexibility with private or small-group workouts. Her practice space includes a ballet barre, Pilates props, and reformers by Peak Pilates, ensuring that students have the tools they need to forge slender, toned muscles. Using these tools, instructors lead dynamic sessions, which can incorporate mindful stretches alongside strength-building exercises and cardio work to create a full-body workout regimen. During select classes, they help keep spirits high by playing up-tempo music and energetic readings of sunny-weather forecasts.

Big Ron's Yoga twists and bends bone abodes to stretchier, more meditative states in 100-minute heated yoga classes. Certified instructors shepherd limb limberers of all experience levels through poses, postures, and complicated three-part yogic harmonies in a 100-degree studio, improving flexibility, honing focus, and increasing energy levels. Heat loosens ligaments, flushes out cell-sitting toxins, and clears the mind of unnecessary theories of relativity. Big Ron’s staff of pliable professionals aid students in their journey toward nimble nirvana, tailoring the dynamic tapestry of poses to each individual’s physical abilities. Bring a beach towel, hand towel, water bottle, and yoga mat, and be prepared to twist and (silently) shout.
At TITLE Boxing Club, heavy 100-pound bags punctuate the open gym space. Led by a professional boxer, kickboxer, or MMA trainer, the classes lead students through full-body fitness using boxing or kickboxing techniques. In addition the small-group classes, the trainers conduct personal-training sessions.
The seasoned instructors at Pilates & Gyrotonic Jupiter guide students through machine-assisted Pilates exercises to sculpt limbs and fortify cores. Teeming with nearly 20 weekly classes, the studio’s schedule accommodates pupils of all fitness levels and short division abilities. At one-hour Pilates sessions, groups of up to six students explore Pilates Reformer machines and Wunda chairs, whose spring-fueled tension resists students’ moves to help build strength, balance, and flexibility during that day’s selection from hundreds of muscle-conditioning exercises in the Pilates repertoire. Like taking a carousel ride with a master chiropractor, Gyrtonic workouts revolve around circular movements that align the vertebrae. Weights and pulleys endow Gyrotonic towers with modifiable resistance that flattens abs and shields joints from impact.
On the "Our Story" page of Twin Power Yoga's website, owners Ann and Ali express their belief that "by sharing yoga, we share ourselves." They know something about sharing—they're twins, after all, which they believe connects them spiritually as much as it does physically. At their West Palm Beach location, these siblings and their fellow instructors help participants of all experience levels explore their own physical and spiritual relationships to the world around them through Twin Power's style of power yoga. In heated studios with colorful walls and hardwood floors, instructors lead postural sequences that build both strength and cardio conditioning. Between flows, they emphasize meditation, helping practitioners let go of the competitive demands of daily life and pet beagles they already regret teaching to talk. This alternation between highly physical postures and awareness of breath encourages students to listen to their bodies. Classes always end in meditation, giving participants time to sit with whatever feelings their practice awakened.
As its name suggests, Barefoot Yoga Studio takes a laid-back approach to yoga, a traditionally laid-back mode of physical expression. Even students without extra funds are welcome to attend classes, and are asked to just place whatever they can in the donation box. The studio wants to ensure that no one misses out on a Hatha or flow class at the studio, or a beach yoga session on the shoreline.
