Having been a dancer since age 5, I have a slight obsession with the latest fitness trends. Luckily, Atlanta has so many great options for you to get your sweat on! With so many options, it can be a bit overwhelming trying to find the place that’s right for you. In other words, tracking down Atlanta’s best fitness studios can certainly be a stretch! And if you are the type of person who needs variety in their routine, it can be even more challenging to find your favorite yoga, pilates, and kickboxing studio.
To help you out, I’ve created a comprehensive list of Atlanta’s best fitness studios by the type of exercise and neighborhood in Atlanta. I have been to dozens of studios over my 4 years here in Atlanta. I’ve also lived in West Midtown, Midtown, Druid Hills, and Buckhead so I’ve had the chance to visit studios all across the city. I joined Classpass when it first came out (and was only $70 dollars for unlimited; oh how I miss those good days) but I’ve also visited studios not available on classpass because like I mentioned I’m obsessed. So check out my list and let me know what you think!
P.S- If you’ve never heard of Classpass, check it out here! It is truly the best way to try a ton of studios and find your favorites.
SculptHouse (3167 Peachtree Rd.). One of the most effective workouts I have ever done, SculptHouse uniquely combines the Lagree Method and cardio training. The Lagree Method is based on pilates principles and performed on a Megaformer machine. This is much more challenging class than pilates though, and aims at sculpting long, lean muscles. The woodway curve is a human-powered treadmill that is designed to be easier on your joints. SculptHouse offers both classes split between the Megaformer and treadmill and full classes on the Megaformer.
The Forum (3393 Peachtree Rd.). Started by two retired NFL players, the Forum offers seriously kickass workouts! Their Fast-Twitch class is one of the most challenging and rewarding classes I have ever taken.
Infinity Yoga (2293 Peachtree Rd.). Infinity Yoga is my favorite yoga studio in Atlanta. I have listed it twice in this article because it is that good. The instructors make each flow unique and challenging, often incorporating arm balances with options that are suitable for beginners and advanced members.
Better classes in Buckhead.
Burn (3575 Durden Dr NE). Burn’s spin classes measure your effort (by resistance and speed) and displays your name in either red, yellow, or green on a big screen in the front of the class. Seeing your effort measured simply by colors makes it very easy to push yourself to the next level (or color!).
Infinity Yoga (1376 Dresden Dr.). Infinity Yoga is my favorite yoga studio in Atlanta. I have listed it twice in this article because it is that good. The instructors make each flow unique and challenging, often incorporating arm balances with options that are suitable for beginners and advanced members.
