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.
A professional dancer who has strutted across dance floors from Miami to New York, Christian Espinola founded Casa Salsa with the hope of bringing Latin dance to the masses. That hope has since become reality, as Christian continues to welcome new students to freewheeling Zumba workouts and salsa classes geared toward singles and couples.
But he's not alone in his efforts. The rest of his team brings a wide range of influences to Casa Salsa; Miami native Alfredo Rodriguez draws on his experience as a DJ, while Peruvian native Angie Zumaran draws on the bachata steps he started learning at a young age.

The team at ReggaeFit has more in common than the fact that they're all experienced instructors. Each woman has been dancing her entire life. A co-owner of ReggaeFit, Rachel has studied everything from ballet and tap to hip-hop and jazz. Now, she finds herself uniting exercisers under a banner of red, yellow, and green.
The instructors lead ReggaeFit workouts that get bodies moving to the infectious rhythms of reggae and soca music. During every class, they combine light, high-energy aerobics with Caribbean dance moves, motivating women and men alike to shake, shimmy, and groove along with the beats. The facility doesn't forget about younger visitors, either. Kids' classes take groups through a range of slower ska tunes and faster soca rhythms so kids can keep up
at school dances when the DJ loses control of the tempo button.
