Lady of America Women's Fitness Club spreads female-focused wellness across the nation by furnishing each of its franchise locations with equipment and classes designed with women's bodies in mind. Each locale stocks a strength-training area with machines sized specifically for the feminine frame, and ellipticals and stationary bicycles help to chisel gams without transporting users across state borders. Instructors conduct such group classes as kickboxing, belly dancing, and Zumba aboard a floating aerobics floor, whose softened surface diminishes stress on joints. Throughout each facility, personal trainers patrol public zones to acquaint guests with exercise gear or host one-on-one sessions. Depending on the location, clubs might also include complimentary onsite childcare, brow dabbing, and amenities ranging from infrared saunas to manicures.

When opening back in January 2010, Blue Sol Yoga began it's courses with original instructor and now studio director, Natalie DeRosa. With over 11 years dedicated to her practice, honing her technique and teaching classes herself, Natalie brings experience and positivity to the studio. Now joined by a staff of instructors, she leads students of varying skill levels, abilities, and interests through an eclectic schedule of sessions that, like a treadmill-powered Jeopardy board, exercises minds and bodies. The versatile practice space accommodates a variety of yoga styles, including hot yoga, which takes advantage of magma-filled heating ducts to raise the studio space up to a sweat-inducing 100 degrees. Blue Sol Yoga's mirror-lined practice room also hosts occasional workshops, special events, and chakra cotillions in order to broaden students' yogic horizons.
Growing up in his native Brazil, Rodrigo Ramos started studying the arts of karate and judo at an age when most kids were still struggling with multiplication tables. A martial arts practitioner since the age of 9, Ramos brought his love of combat with him when his family moved to the United States. He brought his Brazilian heritage, too, eventually becoming a 3rd degree black belt in Brazilian jiujitsu. Now, as the owner and chief instructor at American Top Team, he shares his knowledge with the next generation of martial arts masters. In this spacious facility, he and his staff train students of all ages in disciplines ranging from kids martial arts to MMA and Brazilian jiujitsu. They also oversee more fitness-based training, helping students get in shape through CrossFit and kickboxing.
