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.

Though dance is a great form of exercise, it's equally a great form of self-expression. That's the idea behind Shine On Performing Arts, a dance studio that focuses on not just the discipline of dance, but also artistry and fun. Children combine an appreciation for fitness with fancy footwork in such dance styles as hip-hop, ballet, and jazz, helping them potentially work up to a spot on the studio's competitive dance team. Adults immerse themselves in creative workouts such as the dance-heavy Zumba, barre fitness, and ballet bootcamp, which teaches students to lace a pointe shoe blindfolded.
