Daisy Anten loves fitness so much that she came out of retirement to teach it once again—even after a long career owning two fitness centers. With her business partner, licensed professional counselor Donna Peck, she opened Women's Fitness with Daisy: a women-only gym where Daisy could teach Pilates, yoga, circuit training, and her newfound passion, Zumba.
The center creates a supportive environment for women not only through group classes, but also through nutritional counseling and massage therapy. A mother-daughter membership program fosters fitness across multiple generations better than a pull-up bar bolted to a family tree.
Inspired by the idea that getting fitness results should be fun and surprising, Imagine That! Dance and Fitness' teachers entertain and enrich clients with subjects such as Zumba, cheerleading, and tae kwon do. In that vein, instructor Monica Saldana claims Zumba classes—in which students swivel hips and incinerate calories to Latin-inspired tunes—always feel like a party, mostly due to the messy breakups staged by teenage actors. Hip-hop and break-dance classes sample other styles of music as teachers train bodies to perform their powerful, rhythm-fueled dance steps. Youth-centric Zumbatomics classes motivate kids to shed sweat like their parents, while tae-kwon-do sessions challenge them to learn discipline, focus, and self-defense.
