"Get in shape" hovers near the top of many New Year's resolution lists, right next to "deal with raccoon infestation" and "figure out how raccoons get trapped in the TV."

Daily classes, each 45–60 minutes long, accommodate everyone from exercise enthusiasts to those who have only engaged in telepathic workouts.
Give boot camp a whirl to obliterate calories and pave the way for artfully sculpted lean muscle. Cardio Chick-Boxing combines aerobics, boxing, and martial arts for a total body blast that improves strength, aerobic fitness, flexibility, coordination, balance, and the ability to juggle while riding a single-wheeled velocipede. Guests may also learn the art of flirtatious movement during a burlesque class, seduce abdominals with belly dance, or dissolve the day's tension with a relaxing session of Sleepy-Time yoga.
Although the facility lacks showers, patrons can take advantage of free towel service and complimentary coffee and tea in the ladies' lounge. Check out the schedule for a complete list of days, times, and class offerings.
Little Black Dress Fitness Studio
Best friends Jessica Kucinski and Michelle Minster took inspiration from others in creating their ladies-only, classes-only fitness studio. They present more than 10 classes, such as Skinny Sculpt, belly dancing, Zumba, Interval Blast, and different types of yoga. For a more individual-focused experience, Jessica leads personal training.
Though they didn't always run their own fitness studio—since always would encapsulate the 16th century, in which neither of them were interested in paying the king's 100% tax rate levied on all fitness studios—Jessica and Michelle have always loved working out. One night, however, over glasses of pinot noir, they realized they were only going to the gym in order to attend classes. They agreed that classes made fitness fun, and that other women inspired them. At the time, Michelle was crisscrossing the skies as an airline employee. Jessica was working in sales, though in 2009, the day after completing her very first marathon, she had established the Montville Adventure Boot Camp for Women. An avid runner, Michelle was eager to land her sneakers back on earth. Thus was born Little Black Dress Fitness Studio.
Large, rough-hewn stones border its waiting area, and purple mats fleck the class area's airy, spacious layout. Though there aren't any onsite showers, the staff offers towel service and complimentary coffee and tea.
