At Rising Goddess Fitness, the classes emphasize rising?both literally and figuratively. In the literal sense, students often leave the ground behind, mounting hammocks during aerial fitness sessions and executing flips in advanced pole sessions. In a more figurative sense, founders Michelle Tenuta and Barb Cassidy have designed most of their classes in four-week sequences, so over time, students' confidence in their abilities rises. Each class builds on its predecessor, ensuring that by the end of the month, students have mastered something new. That could mean keeping the hoop aloft in a hula-hoop-fitness class, executing a flip in a pole class, or touching their belly button with their eyes closed in a belly-dance session.
Flanked by mirrors and overseen by a charismatic fitness coach, EB30x Fitness Studio is the destination for those seeking intense, guided workouts.

During quick 45-minute sessions, exercisers use their own bodies for resistance, sweating and laughing together as they rapidly spring between different positions. Curious gymgoers can watch the workout by clicking here, because its high-energy routines generate so much power they actually upload themselves to the Internet by accident.
Michael Ockrim enjoys being between a rock and a hard place. As the creator of Backyard Beefcake Fitness, he expounds on fitness workouts that make use of the natural and manmade world to build functional strength and total-body fitness. Michael eschews treadmills and bicep curls for chopping wood, pull-ups on a tree limb, or sit-ups while suspended from the peak of Mount Everest. Preaching an attention to the mind-body connection, he leads indoor boot-camp sessions, personal-training sessions, and outdoor camps that help prepare for an upcoming mud run or obstacle-course race.
Yoga Vidya's experienced instructors guide yogis of all skill levels through classes that strengthen and restore bodies and calm bustling brains. Yoga Vidya specializes in Iyengar yoga, a practice that promotes flexibility and incorporates props, poses, and prescription-strength stretching. Scaled to specific ability levels, introductory, intermediate, and invitation-only classes encompass 90 minutes of body bending and utilize natural-rubber yoga mats and handcrafted wooden implements to get the most out of each sarvangasana. Standing poses, twists, and bends awaken sluggish energy glands during the Rise and Shine classes, and ropes, chairs, and organic-cotton blankets support slower-paced position posing in each Gentle class. To keep endorphins firing at a steady flow, the airy studio boasts an all-natural atmosphere buoyed by ample sunlight and grass-fed bamboo floors.
