The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.

As the owner of Infinite Fitness, exercise guru and former college athlete Heather Ellis draws from a wealth of fitness training. Her studio's workouts are all based on the GRAVITY Training System, a regimen that uses resistance and core training to burn calories and boost endurance. Each GRAVITY machine is calibrated with 22 challenging levels of incline and resistance. In three classes, this core approach is blended with exercises on the spin bike, general weight and resistance training, or a combination of yoga and Pilates. Spin classes incorporate a fleet of Schwinn indoor cycles. During all sessions, class sizes are kept small?about six clients to every instructor?to ensure that everyone gets personalized attention and has someone to high-five every few seconds. In addition to supportive instructors, lots of natural light streaming in through massive windows helps keep clients upbeat and motivated.
