The dress code of each fitness class at Onyx tells a lot about the curriculum: the shorter the shorts, the better in the pole fitness classes, as contact between the bare skin and the pole helps keeps students in gravity-defying inversion. Meanwhile, it’s better to wear long pants for the aerial fitness classes—you can avoid rope burn this way while climbing the silks that hang in the spacious aerial studio. These two types of classes make up the majority of Onyx Pole and Aerial Fitness Studio’s classes, and though the classes are fun, the instructors take the fitness aspect seriously, too. To that end, they offer boot camp, bodyrock, and core pole classes to help students achieve their overall fitness goals.

Fusing the graceful gestures of ballet and Pilates, the Xtend Barre workout challenges all body parts through a series of isometric exercises and orthopedic stretches. The briskly paced, 55-minute workout sculpts and lengthens muscles in the style of traditional Pilates while also increasing one's awareness of posture and the prevalence of squirrels in pink tutus. Xtend's torso-twisting staff will help sculpt bodies proportionally, toning arms, thighs, and lifted derrieres, and can modify workouts for beginners, prenatal clients, or clients with injuries. Offering classes seven days a week, Xtend Barre SLC asks students to arrive for class sporting either socks (grip socks recommended) or suction-bottomed toe rings.
As a dancer and instructor, Tiffany Enger has pirouetted through world-renowned institutions such as Steps, The Broadway Dance Center, and Joffrey Ballet School. Today, at Just Dance Academy, she and her staff of dance professionals help ignite passion for the art form in children as young as 3 years old. Though their classes build strong foundations in ballet, hip-hop, and other styles, benefits extend beyond just technical dance skills. The instructors strive to help each pupil become comfortable with self-expression and creativity during recitals and state-mandated flash mobs as well as auditions for the studio's competition teams.
The safety-certified coaches at Olympus Gymnastics have taught talented tumblers that have gone on to participate every year in the Junior National Olympics and Utah State Championships. Students ages 3 to 15 years can pick from a schedule of floor-tumbling classes, dropping into the facility once a week to increase their physical dexterity, hone their mental determination, and develop their vocabulary for pommel-horse whispering. Coaches teach tots the basics during classes, and leaping adolescents limber up their bodies in tiered levels and earn their way toward airborne flight, vaulted exploration, and bar-gripping acrobatics. The experienced staff evoke a positive and encouraging atmosphere, in which every child receives individual attention, support, and an opportunity to take an honest bow that wasn't earned by being the first to throw pudding across the school cafeteria.
