If Mother Nature could design a building, it might look something like The Yoga Factory. Sunlight and bird song filter through frosted-glass windows. Trees dapple the walls with shadows and breezes rustle their leaves as the humans inside the studio draw their own deep breaths. Experienced instructors siphon inspiration from this natural beauty, filling the space with enough low-toned chants to befriend even the shiest bullfrog. Under their guidance, yogis of all levels build strength and flexibility during alignment-focused Hatha and Vinyasa classes. The temperature rises to 88 degrees for Hot-Yasa sessions, loosening tight muscles as students practice back bends, arm balances, and inversions atop matted floors. To help yogis hold poses for extended periods of time, teachers may incorporate props such as blocks and blankets during calming restorative routines.
In addition to melting stress with yoga classes, The Yoga Factory helps exercisers torch calories with boot camps and Zumba cardio-dance parties. Upon request, personal trainers can tailor workouts to goals such as losing weight, increasing strength, or finally besting an overly aggressive boxing shadow.
The trainers at Fitness Edge simplify physical wellness by assembling all the building blocks for healthy living in one place. In addition to meal planning and personal training, their iSweat program – formerly known as Adventure Boot Camp – devotes a solid 20 days to completely reinventing bodies. With sessions held five days a week, the regimen builds strength and endurance through a series of circuit training workout. The dynamic group classes wrap up with a final weigh-in, test of athletic ability, and pat on the back for anyone with enough breath left to whistle the national anthem. Trainers also help out existing athletes with sports training designed to improve play at game-time while simultaneously warding off injuries.

As a former collegiate football player on scholarship, Corey Logan knows firsthand the importance of physical fitness. He decided to put this knowledge to use by coaching others on athletic fitness and weight loss, earning his ACE and NASM personal training certifications and opening Punch Fitness. He strives to bring the same explosive energy that he used on the field to his boxing-themed classes and one-on-one sessions. Along with his team of trainers—all of whom have completed college degrees and hold at least one national certification—Corey cultivates a demanding yet non-judgmental atmosphere, pushing for fast-paced punches while at the same time respecting the learning curve of each client. Regardless of the classes, the team consistently doles out encouragement as students swing kettlebells, suspend their limbs from TRX cords, or throw jabs in sync to hip-hop beats.
Children can also practice their air-crushing punches during classes designed for 4–15 year olds, which aim to develop coordination and strength of character.
