True to its simplistic name, Wellness Forum Hot Yoga cranks the thermostat to a warm, humid, and detoxifying temperature designed to burn body fat, loosen stiff muscles, and flush out toxins. During each 90-minute hot-yoga class, the studio's trained instructors lead a looped series of 26 flowing poses, pushing well-warmed student bodies to forge new, flexible frontiers while maintaining rhythmic deep-relaxation breathing. After just a few flowing sessions, mentally limber students at Wellness Forum Hot Yoga can expect healthier-looking skin and occasional bouts of endorphin-induced giggles. To make the most of the heat-seeking experience, first-timers should arrive 15 minutes early with beach towels and yoga mats (rentals available for $1), plus water in their bodies, their bottles, and, if applicable, in any unattended at-home aquariums.
Juana Williams knows not only what it takes to lose weight, but also to keep it off: she lost more than 45 pounds and has maintained her newfound figure for more than six years. To share her passion for fitness with others, she opened BodybyJuana, where she and five other instructors lead boot-camp, yoga, Zumba, and Piloxing classes, as well as personal-training sessions. They also curate an extensive list of healthy recipe ideas and fitness tips on their website so that clients can maintain their routines at home or when stranded on a dessert island that has an inexplicable Wi-Fi signal.
A member of the international Smart Tan network, Bronze FX Tanning provides its clients with the most up-to-date tanning intelligence by insisting that each tanning technician undergo certification through the Ohio State Board of Cosmetology. UV-free Mystic Tan booths spritz skin with bronzer using specialized nozzles that polarize the solutions, allowing them to better adhere to the skin’s surface. The salon also offers multiple UV options, including low-pressure Tanses and Celsius VHR beds, each with 52 bulbs, as well as a high-pressure Ultrabronz bed, which uses 18 1,000-watt bulbs to produce a darker tan and enhance teddy bears with natural highlights in just 30 minutes.
Named for both the Thai word for go and a small, peaceful town in Thailand, PAI Yoga & Fitness strives to combine two conflicting notions?energy and tranquility. Motion and stillness unite in PAI?s roster of classes, which range from yoga's fluid postures to challenging, heart-pumping TRX routines. At two locations, their new one opening in Gahanna in the fall of 2014, the instructors lead classes within appropriately matched settings, with yoga classes taking place in a sunlight-drenched room with gleaming wood floors and fitness classes occurring in a black-floored studio populated by feral megaphones.
