Cycling, swimming, and running form the three legs of every triathlon. Those same activities are the focus at Tri Right Coaching, which offers comprehensive training for everyone from casual enthusiasts to competitive athletes. Founded by MJ Gasik—a coach with experience competing in more than 100 triathlons, including Ironman events at the international level—Tri Right Coaching designs individualized training regimens intended to improve technique and form, based on each participant's experience and goals. Swim analyses help develop more efficient strokes that generate greater power; and cycling instruction can cover the fundamentals of everything from pacelining and group etiquette to changing flat tires.

Final Round Combat Sports Academy's 14,000-square-foot facility includes a boxing ring, an Olympic-style wrestling mat, a CrossFit box, and even a yoga studio. Instructors use every inch of space to help their students get fighting fit. The lineup of teachers includes certified CrossFit coaches and martial artists specializing in MMA, boxing, and jiu jitsu. Though strength, endurance, and mental toughness are important for any martial artist, instructors acknowledge that students also need skills that can only be coaxed out in a slightly gentler fashion. They use yoga to cultivate flexibility, weightlifting to build strength, and mitt-based boxing to build coordination.
Recently opened, Simply Yoga has already become a welcoming space for yoga students of all experiences and backgrounds. First-time students learn Vinyasa's foundational postures during hour-long basics classes, while more experienced practitioners move to deeper expressions in all-levels or advanced power classes. Regardless of the challenge level, students move through poses in rooms heated to 80–85 degrees. So, while it doesn't quite have the tropical feeling of hot yoga, the studio is plenty warm to get the heart pumping, blood flowing, and sweat dripping onto the mat.
