Mats in soft blues, purples, and reds dot the sleek studio floor of tAra Yoga. On each colorful island is a student, holding poses and enjoying the calming space. Here, certified instructors kick off Vinyasa classes as early as 9 a.m. and as late as 7:45 p.m. They also lead Mommy and Me sessions for parents and kids, as well as yoga-for-beginners sessions to help first-timers get acquainted with the practice.

Sensei and trainers converge in Voltage’s studio to teach the ancient art of karate to kids and teens, or amp up heart rates with more modern fitness classes. Adults work out alongside peers in six upbeat and challenging group classes, the majority of which incorporate a dance-party atmosphere. Both belly dancing and Red Hot Dance help exercisers shimmy off calories and tone physiques with a variety of moves, from core-toning twirls to fast-paced choreography set to Top 40 hits. For a more sporting session, Piloxing blends the cardiovascular workout of boxing’s bobbing and weaving with the same ab-strengthening Pilates moves that boxers use to celebrate a KO.

Meanwhile, in the kids' studio, Leopard Cub classes (4–6 year olds) teaches the basics of karate, while the junior’s club (for 7–10 year olds) builds on those foundational lessons with more advanced kicks and punches. Karate instructors extend their fighting fervor to teenagers and adults, bringing the two age groups together more effectively than a Pat Boone Sings Carly Rae Jepson album.

Grandmaster Dennis Tosten founded the first Amerikick in 1967 and has since taught several champion fighters, police officers, and everyday students karate and self-defense. Today, the lauded chain teaches fitness classes inspired by martial arts, including cardio kickboxing in six states. Each location upholds a curriculum that blends Chinese and Japanese martial-arts styles—including kenpo and tae kwon do—with modern self-defense strategies, further updating traditional practices by eschewing uniforms and belts for casual workout gear. Having attained certification in teaching kickboxing from the National Association of Professional Martial Artists, Amerikick's seasoned instructors also each possess black belts in karate, a rank as difficult to attain as the snake charmer's belt of live cobras.

Q&A with Beverly Brown, President

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

By keeping them in a fun-filled environment with fun-filled people. Accountability partners are key.

What's the most radical physical transformation you've seen a client make?

One of my clients went from 310 pounds to 190 pounds, and she is still losing weight.

Sweating to the oldies is acceptable, but sweating to the blues less so. Do you find that certain styles and genres of music generate more intense workouts?

Absolutely. Upbeat, heart-pounding music always helps people work harder, which ultimately results in more calories being burned.
