One’s a former college athlete. One’s an experienced yogi. One’s a former stay-at-home mom who simply refused to stay overweight any longer. Though they all come from different backgrounds, Oni Fitness Studio’s trainers share one important trait: the desire to stay fit using time-tested exercises. Through personal instruction and group classes in yoga, Pilates, and TRX suspension training, they share their dedication with students, building strong bodies while maintaining balance between body and mind. Stacked flagstone accent walls, hardwood floors, and creamy paint tones run throughout the studio, setting a comfortable and secluded scene in which students can release tension brought on by everyday tasks including evening commutes or morning jousts with the paperboy.
At Body Central Studio, the ceilings are high and the walls are covered in mirrors, meaning students have plenty of room to practice Pilates and study their form while doing so. While the studio teaches the fitness system through mat classes, the majority of the rooms also come stocked with machines such as the Cadillac and the Reformer, each of which strengthen cores, tone muscles, and have names that sound like Steven Seagal films.
Pink Barre's barre experience is unique in that it was created by women for women. The female-centric Atlanta-area studios offer workouts that combine the low-impact moves of Pilates, isometrics, ballet, and yoga to slim and tone physiques. Beyond exercise, however, Pink Barre focuses on bringing women together in an environment that strengthens not only their muscles, but their minds and spirits, too.
When it comes to yoga, Lisa Jones means business. The East Cobb Yoga founder's motto—“move to improve or why bother”—succinctly defines her approach to the ancient practice. During classes, she motivates her students to challenge themselves by matching breaths with asanas, or poses, in order to boost their mental and physical health while slaying stress and muscle aches. But it's not all serious business. Along with encouraging mindfulness and concentration, she cultivates a playfulness in her sessions, weaving humor into the practice so that students can laugh with each other and tone their funny bones.

Absolute Pilates’s instructors are far from old-school. Though they each boast extensive training in traditional Pilates—and teach classic mat classes—they focus largely on incorporating modern equipment into the ancient practice. Pilates Reformers, Towers, chairs, and even the barre are used during classes, often in combination with each other to optimize workouts and results. The equipment helps students of all levels maintain their balance and target dormant muscles, transforming standard Pilates into a more effective workout. But teachers still maintain the welcoming, personal environment long attributed to Pilates studios and grandma’s doomsday bunker.
