  • NowFitness
    The crowd's roar flooded the streets of Chicago as Darcy Zenker crossed the finish line of her first marathon, clocking in at 3:35. After she had been running for years—placing among the top finishers at four half-marathons and competing on the Southern Illinois University track team—she decided she needed a break. She then immersed herself in a new athletic pursuit—group fitness instruction. Three years later, she became the head trainer of her own boot-camp fitness program, NowFitness, where her years of athletic training and certification in fitness instruction shine through in her workouts. In parks throughout the local area, she and her staff of fellow trainers lead groups through high-intensity workouts that take advantage of their surroundings. She motivates patrons to scale stairs, do crunches on benches, and hoist planks across grassy fields. The trainers also offer a stroller-based boot camp for moms, in which participants blast through cardio and strength-training exercises that incorporate their stroller with baby or a watermelon they've dressed up to look like a baby in tow. In addition to hosting classes, NowFitness pairs patrons with certified lifestyle and weight-management coach Amanda Bickel for a comprehensive five-week nutrition program.

  • Yoga Rocks the Park
    Seven years ago, some like-minded yogis met in a Denver park to practice yoga in the great outdoors. They didn't know that in the years to come, their numbers would swell to the hundreds?or that this tradition would become an anticipated event in 20 cities. In that moment, they just wanted to celebrate an atmosphere of unity in nature. Today, Yoga Rocks the Park (Open Sky Marketing) meets on select Saturdays and Sundays in the spring and summer, drawing participants from locales such as Chicago, Phoenix, and San Diego. Though the movement's reach has yet to stop growing, all of its incarnations are staffed locally?area yoga teachers run the trademark 75-minute, all-levels class, and area pigeons act as the security team. At the same time, live musicians provide a soundtrack for the flowing series of poses, and local businesses within the community sell yoga- and wellness-related goods from a row of tents in the Wellness Vendor Village. Yogis of all ages are welcome. In fact, a class for kids keeps youngsters occupied while parents stretch in the sun.

  • The Living Well Foundation
    While childhood obesity is a topic that receives widespread attention, registered nurse Jean Huelsing uncovered a facet of the issue that many have overlooked: some of the very "fat camps" designed to help overweight kids slim down were actually part of the problem. She takes issue with these camps? short-term approach, as they rely on fast-acting diets rather than instilling healthier lifestyle habits. Striving to succeed where other camps failed, Jean started Camp Jump Start in 2003 and, just three years and a score of happy campers later, founded The Living Well Foundation to extend the reach of her holistic-wellness principles. The organization now hosts a wide range of camps for adults and children alike. They?re held at Living Well Village, which occupies 250 acres in the woods, where campers can develop a love for active pastimes through outdoor activities, such as navigating ropes courses, fishing, and juggling beavers.

  • Core 3
    When Cari Benz Allen went to Costa Rica, she brought back more than just a tan. The marathoner, triathlete and fitness instructor also brought home a new favorite way to use her body: Surfset Fitness. It's a workout that, while taking place on dry land, incorporates the movements and principles of surfing in order to strengthen abs and shore up agility. When she founded Core 3 in January 2015, Cari pulled from Surfset to devise her own form of exercise, which also folds in the resistance bands of TRX and and the ultrarealistic stationary cycles of RealRyder workouts. In group and private lessons, she and her fellow instructors combine these three forms of exercise into uniquely chimerical, whole-body routines.

  • Urban Breath
    To join a class at Urban Breath Yoga is to join a family of fellow students and encouraging mentors. The studio's blog tells you just how tight-knit the community is: birth announcements alternate with featured member bios, and the vibe is always congratulatory. And, far from being isolated, the group seeks out new practitioners with lessons that cater to yoga beginners. There's a yoga basics class that covers the fundamentals of hatha poses, a beginner series that meets for four weeks, and even a free two-hour intro session. From these classes, students can progress to more advanced hatha and vinyasa techniques, such as inversions and folding your mat into an origami swan. The studio also hosts specialty workshops on prenatal yoga, as well as teacher-training classes, children's classes, and immersive yoga weekends.
