Buda Khi – Revel Fitness
Martial-arts world champion Lester “L.J.” Easley brings out your inner badass (as he has done for Tamika Catchings) in his cardio-karate class, featuring fierce kick-and-punch combos, abs and arms exercises, and plyometrics. 13720 N. Meridian St., Carmel, 809-2364, revelfitness.net
Barre – Studio Re
“If you’re looking to bulk up, this is not the class for you,” Anna Newcomb says of her low-impact, ballet-inspired class that tones the big muscle groups. The exercises can be modified if you’re no Natalie Portman. 225 E. Carmel Dr., Carmel, 660-5063, studiorellc.com
Team Training – IFAST
Boot-camp junkies might meet their match at IFAST, the place where Indy Eleven conditions. The classes here promise diversity: TRX-style suspension bands, kettlebells, giant tractor tires, and even a sledgehammer. 9402 Uptown Dr., 578-0998, indianapolisfitnessandsportstraining.com
InCycle Express + Pump 15 – InCycle
Your upper body isn’t off the hook at this spin studio. After 45 minutes in the saddle, there’s an optional 15 minutes of to-ning with weighted bars and resistance bands. 736 Hanover Pl., Carmel City Center, Carmel, 805-1867, incycleindy.com
Deep Soul Yoga – Body Mind & Core
This 75-minute class feels like a yoga workshop. Students practice centering and slow flow, restorative poses, Pranayama breathing techniques, and guided meditation. 1344 S. Range Line Rd., Carmel, 696-0720, bodymindandcore.com
