If Move Fitness and Dance's students aren't a blur of motion across the dance floor, something's not right. Here, instructors motivate folks to build lean muscles, improve their flexibility, and lose weight through energetic fitness and dance classes. The team specializes in Zumba sessions that blend cardio workouts with Latin music; Booty Barre classes that mash up Pilates, yoga, and ballet techniques; and yoga classes that strengthen bodies and minds with a series of poses.

At Red Carpet Boot Camps’ fitness center, trainers motivate others toward fitness through classes such as spin, yoga, and Reformer Pilates. When not in the gym, trainers lead their charges outside for 60-minute boot-camp sessions that combine everything from their classes, as well as resistance, cardio, and calisthenics. Understanding that pushing muscles to their limits is only part of the equation, Red Carpet also offers nutrition coaching.
The year 1986 was a health- and fitness-focused one. Mike Tyson became the youngest heavyweight boxing champion in history, smoking was banned on all forms of public transportation, and Being-Fit opened its doors. The gym sought to supply its members with everything they needed to reach their personal fitness goals. Though its equipment has been overhauled, Being-Fit’s mission hasn't changed in the intervening two decades.
Today, the gym's trainers host more than 30 varieties of group fitness classes, including yoga, Pilates, kickboxing, and Zumba. When not in class, students can take advantage of the cardio theater, where favorite shows and video clips of kittens wiping out on treadmills play constantly as people jog in place. Additionally, the gym’s personal trainers construct individualized workouts during one-on-one sessions, equipping members with repeatable exercises crafted to address personal fitness goals.

When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. MetaBody created a real-life version of that ticket with the MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.
