At Zumba W/ Obey 1, certified instructor Ramon Pardo gets toes tapping and bodies moving during fun Zumba workouts. Motivational music acts as a soundtrack to each session, fueling clients to perform dance combinations that help burn calories, tone muscles, and sculpt the body. Ramon is also certified to teach Zumbatomic classes, which are specially designed for kids and incorporate dance fitness, games, and high-energy music.
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.

Though now spread over the United States, Crunch gym started in a basement-level aerobics studio in New York City. Despite the humble location, the gym's founders aspired to foster a workout environment that would keep members exercising through entertainment and not shouting from drill-sergeant-like trainers. Their idea was to host fitness classes with offbeat touches, including hip-hop aerobics featuring a live rapper and coed action wrestling.
Twenty years later, Crunch gyms' fitness classes still stray from the beaten path. Body Web with TRX sessions suspend members from a pillar, where they complete gravity-defying maneuvers with help from strong resistance ropes. In Bosu Bootcamp, every exercise is completed on an apparatus that is part balance ball, part core board, and fully endorsed by circus seals nationwide.
