Length, grace, and a healthy body. These are the focuses of barre3 founder Sadie Lincoln. To achieve these results collectively, however, Sadie knew she needed to come up with a completely new routine. Working with yogis, professional dancers, doctors, and athletes, she created the barre3 system. It's a three-step sequence that consists of isometric holds, low-impact movements, and recovery stretching. This combination strengthens cores and aligns postures while sculpting long, lean muscles and burning calories. While upbeat music fills the studio, instructors lead small groups through a heart-racing sequence of yoga-inspired poses and pilates-based exercises. The ballet barre comes into use when striking muscle-building dance poses and stretches.
It's a system that has had proven results, which has spurred the successful growth of barre3 locations throughout the country. Today, fitness enthusiasts can find a barre3 studio in 16 states. An easy-to-follow routine, barre3 can also be performed at home with online workouts. These workouts are designed to fit busy schedules with routines that range from 10–60 minutes. All that's needed for online workouts is a barre3 core ball, weights, an exercise mat, and a sturdy, waist-high surface, such as a countertop.

Fitness Challenge is a self-described “work in progress gym” aimed at catering the gym-going experience to the needs of its clientele. That goal fits in well with its sub-moniker as the Real People Gym, playing up a philosophy that exercise is for everyone, not just those with Arnold physiques. The welcoming atmosphere makes it common to overhear friendly chitchat among other members between reps or to spot synchronized runs on the treadmill. Despite all the socialization, members mainly spend their time working up a sweat aboard Life Fitness cardio machines—either in the main studio or in the ladies-only room—and get a good pump going with Apex and Hammer Strength equipment.
A full schedule of group fitness classes, including Zumba, kickboxing, and boot camp, elevates heart rates five days a week, while Pilates instructor Joan Klucha targets core strength and flexibility with graceful muscle-toning exercises. The studio also staffs certified personal trainers who customize fitness regimes to individual goals, beginning with one complimentary session for each new member. Post workout, members can head to the juice bar for a protein shake or slink into the tanning salon and pretend they’re the first to successfully land on the sun.

The also studio offers a number of specialty classes, including yoga done in a room illuminated by candlelight. In addition to its multi-styled menu of classes, Hari Om Yoga houses a 2,000 sq. ft. retail store that supplies fresh, inspired activewear.
