Break up with your treadmill in 2016. We'll show you how:
1. The Sweat Spot, Silverlake, Los Angeles
We know you're always looking for an excuse to wear leg warmers, and there's no better place to flaunt them than at The Sweat Spot - Ryan Heffington's 2,000 square foot dance studio in Silverlake. (You know him as the brilliant choreographer behind Sia's "Chandelier" and "Elastic Heart" videos.)
Express yourself in popular classes like Wet Wednesdays, Sweaty Sundays, and Get Me Bodied. Dancers of all ages, shapes, and skill levels are welcome; the important thing is that you are having fun and (of course) sweating!
2. AIR Aerial Fitness, Chicago
Stretch, flip, and spiral your way to a lithe body on an aerial silk hammock. Classes are offered daily, and you can even book the studio for a bachelorette party or girls' night out.
3. Pop Physique, NYC
Boasting an "artistic approach" to exercise, Pop Physique's one hour barre-based classes focus on grace, strength, and flexibility. Work toward longer, leaner muscles, a flatter stomach, and a more toned bum while moving to curated playlists that reflect the emotion landscape of modern life.
5. Circus Warehouse, Long Island City, NY
No one here is going to tell you to quit clownin' around.
Get in the swing of things on the flying trapeze, check out the view from the top of the Chinese pole, or pick a partner for extreme acro-balancing. Circus Warehouse offers everything from juggling to contortion classes, helping you to fulfill your childhood dream of running away and joining the circus - if only for a day.
6.Lake Tahoe Yoga, Lake Tahoe, CA
Nothing says "namaste" like a stand-up paddle board yoga class in a beautiful setting. Can you imagine anything more peaceful?
7. Vibesz Studio, NYC
Pole fitness classes at Vibesz will work your core and leave you feeling saucy. Bring some heels and let loose when the lights go down. We won't tell Mama if you don't!
8. Slimmons Studio, Beverly Hills
Okay, Mama can come along to this one. Move and chuckle with everyone's favorite fitness guru - the one and only Richard Simmons.
Those short shorts. That sparkly smile. The wild hair. We hope to be that cool one day.
