Intensity Fitness Dance Studio’s owner Vickkie Parent turned to Zumba after the tediousness of regular gym workouts started to bore her. At her studio, she helps her students avoid these types of plateaus with classes—such as dance-inspired Zumba or Piyo Strength—that mask a workout behind a fun activity. All of the classes that she and her fellow instructors teach can be modified to challenge veterans or ease first-timers into exercise.

Honore Laflamme, owner of Jubilation, espouses a simple fitness philosophy: "As long as you are moving, sweating, and smiling, you are doing it right," she says. She describes her mission as making exercise fun. She couches hard work such as Zumba, yoga, and Pilates in an energetic atmosphere of low lighting and funky tunes that are akin to "being at a party with your friends." She leads every class in a space with a suspended wooden floor, which helps absorb impact to lessen the strain on joints and avoid bothering the mole people that live downstairs.
