With 24-hour access, aerobic and mixed-martial-arts group classes, and well-appointed facilities, Club One Fitness aims to be the ideal backdrop for any workout routine. The schedule of group exercise classes includes yoga, Pilates, and Zumba. Boxers spar with other members or against the gym's stash of weighted bags during boxing classes for adults and tykes, who learn the pugilistic art in an Olympic-sized ring that, according to the Washington Post, "bears no resemblance to the worn, dingy boxing gyms of Hollywood movies, even though some Gold and Silver Gloves fighters, and a few pros, have trained there."
The staff of personal trainers and athletes show new members the ropes with three complimentary orientation sessions sessions; during the first, staffers talk to new members about their workout history and goals, and show them how to use Life Fitness treadmills, LifeCycle exercise bikes, elliptical cross-trainers, and stair climbers. On the second visit, they explain how to use Hammer Strength and Life Fitness strength-training and toning equipment. On the third and final visit, staffers give members their own personalized workout program, calibrated to help them reach their goals. From there, members can forge their own fitness paths or buddy up with a personal trainer.
Staffed by trained personnel, the bright and roomy childcare center keeps young ones engaged with toys, a big-screen TV, and a PlayStation. After adults catch their own entertainment in the cardio theater, which projects movies as guests decimate calories, they can relax in the sauna, hop into the tanning beds, or shower off sweat and punching-bag tears.

The "M" in M.Power Yoga has probably done some yoga itself—it's very flexible, standing for several different things. First and foremost, it stands for moxie, which groups will acquire through force of character, determination, and nerve while achieving physical breakthroughs. It also stands for mastery of the moment, a quality each of the studio's instructors exhibit through his or her teachings.
M.Power Yoga offers a variety of class offerings including Power Vinyasa, Melt Hot Fusion class, and Barre. Music is a vital element, too. In fact, musicians perform live during classes on a regular basis, cranking up the creative energy so nobody has to practice on top of a painting instead of a mat. Additionally, the studio space goes a long way in making the M.Power Yoga experience unique. That's especially true of the bright, uncluttered main studio on the first floor, which is equipped with anti-microbial cork floors and a radiant heating system for comfortably heated classes. The locker rooms present a spa-like atmosphere with plenty of safes to lock up your belongings and the retail boutique has unique, yoga-inspired clothing as well as many accessories you might need for a stretchy night out on the town.
At the age of 14, Baltimore Yoga Village founder Anjali Sunita traveled to India, where she discovered the joys of simple living mixed with the sorrows of yearning for a greater purpose. After years of expanding her education and worldview through reading and the guidance of a college mentor, Anjali found peace within the rigid discipline and spiritual focus of a South Indian ashram. Soon setting her mind to sharing the physical and mental benefits of yoga with others, she taught in private homes and underserved schools before opening her own pair of studios known collectively as Baltimore Yoga Village.
There, a team of certified yoga instructors oversees a supportive community dedicated to peace, health, and spiritual growth. Whereas many studios’ teachers spend too much time teaching students to knit their own mats, Baltimore Yoga Village’s programs focus on the ancient practice of Hatha yoga, which includes deep breathing techniques, yoga postures with attention to physical alignment, and guided relaxation. The staff also leads regular workshops in a variety of topics, from Thai-yoga bodywork to meditation through devotional songs.
As she walked out of the studio after her first Bikram-yoga class in 2005, Deborah Vojik knew she’d discovered something amazing. She eagerly began attending as many as sessions as she could, even offering to tidy up the studio twice a week in exchange for free classes. After nine weeks of training completed in 2006, Deborah earned her certification as a Bikram-yoga instructor, opening her own studio in 2012. She brings knowledge from her career as a registered nurse to the teachings she learned while studying Bikram.
Today, inside Bikram Yoga Mid Atlantic’s 1,625-square-foot heated room, Deborah and her staff of highly trained, certified instructors conduct sessions seven days a week. Upon the antimicrobial, hypoallergenic floors, the yogis lead students through 26 traditional postures as the higher temperature relieves muscle tension and causes bodies to sweat out toxins. To keep the atmosphere serene and focused, the instructors discourage cell phones and late arrivals.
