  • Jazzercise - Hampton Roads
    Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing with the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 500 calories with each go-round.

  • Curves
    With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

  • Capoeira Resistencia
    Clad in white, yellow, and green uniforms, the capoeiristas stand in a circle, drumming, clapping, or playing instruments to help keep time for the duo at the center of their formation. These two performers circle each other, tumbling and kicking, seeing how fast they can go without ever striking their counterpart. Though the pace is fast and the potential blows powerful, the match is more festive than ferocious, its participants playful instead of pugilistic. This combination of physicality and fun forms the core Capoeira Resistencia's teaching philosophy, and curricula of its every class. More than self-defense or athleticism, the gym's instructors teach students to embrace experimentation and confidence through the art of capoeira. They help students master the art's basic movements—which generally resemble a more measured form of breakdancing—before layering in new techniques, pushing each pupil towards a state of lithe flexibility and physical strength along the way.
