Sweat removes toxins from the body. Fevers burn away unwelcome invaders. Heat allows muscles to extend and contract further. Heat can be healthy, a lesson Bikram Choudhury embraced when he moved his yogic practice into a 105-degree room, 2 degrees hotter than the average temperature inside a yak. The idea caught on, spreading around the world and eventually coming to Bikram Yoga Westfield in the form of Bikram-certified teachers. They lead Bikram's classic series of 26 asanas and two breathing exercises, a 90-minute session of stretching in which each pose builds upon the benefits of the last. In addition to their signature heated yoga, the staff members also facilitate wellness with massage services, holistic nutritional counseling, and even CrossFit coaching through their sister organization, CrossFit Westfield.

No Body Denied—that’s what the NBD in NBD Training Zone for Women stands for. An offshoot of NBD Fitness in Springfield, the facility was started as a place where ladies could come to transform their lifestyles, improve their physique, or boost their confidence amongst a community of like-minded people. The instructors lead 60 group fitness classes each week, a diverse array of exercise methods that includes everything from TRX and spinning to yoga and Pilates. The Pilates reformer sessions are designated for small groups; if you need some personal attention or are afraid you’ll yell your ATM pin number during exercise, the studio offers private personal training sessions.
