Best Cycling Studio

Flywheel Sports
Get ready to leave the stress of the week in the studio as you fly through cycling classes at this modern destination. Get ready to sweat, too. “Each class is packed with races, rhythm riding, and sprints,” says Michelle Kasker, studio manager. “Our technology sets a new standard for indoor cycling, allowing you to track performance over time. As soon as class is over, you can log on to your Flywheel account and see your stats, including how fast and how strong you rode, how this compares to your previous rides, and how you rank against other riders in your classes.” Sounds like its time to take a break from the rat race and race yourself.

Performance Fitness
Working out is important. But it’s not always fun. Enter Performance Fitness, a boutique gym and fitness community that has all your popular group classes like boot camp and kettlebells, as well as a fun, positive attitude. “Performance Fitness is the place for people who hate to workout, who feel uncomfortable at big gyms and in big classes, or the people who used to workout but have lost their mojo,” explains owner Michelle Collier. “Our goal is to help them find Outer Strength for Their Inner WarriorsTM by bringing them into our (slightly wacky) community of moms, dads, teachers, doctors, lawyers, small business owners, and the like and teach them how to make exercise a permanent and fun part of their lives through our strength-based results driven program — and the occasional spontaneous dance break.”

Best Yoga Studio

Balanced for Life Yoga
Getting zen can often cause even more stress – we’ve all been to that yoga class with the show-off judging you while she contorts into shapes that make you want to ditch class and grab a soft pretzel. But that’s exactly the environment owner Denise Orsulak strived to avoid when opening Balanced for Life. “This is a non-judgmental community where the whole family can come to enhance health and well-being through yoga with supportive and experienced yoga professionals,” she says. “Come as you are!”
