The secret—and it’s quite intuitive, really—to actually enjoying your workout is finding the right method for you. And that process can be…well, a process, until you find something that sticks. To kick-start your research, we asked around for the best, most invigorating, feel-good classes out there—both IRL and online. As always, our editors came through.

The Vibe: The Tracy Anderson Method is a goop-favorite program designed to tone and strengthen your muscles continuously. The ever-evolving classes are challenging (expect to sweat—a lot) yet easy to follow, with three levels to graduate through as you master the choreography. Pro tip: Subscribe to TA Live for access to 180 virtual classes with senior trainers, plus invitations to surprise live classes with Tracy herself.

The Fit and Props: Movement-optimized sneakers, weighted bangles to boost intensity, and a foam roller to soothe any tightness.

The Locations: LA, New York, the Hamptons, and Madrid. And Londoners: You can book a private training session at the gym of your choosing.

OPEN

yoga class

The Vibe: Open takes a holistic approach to training, combining mindfulness tools (breathwork and meditation) with movement (choose from yoga, Pilates, stretching, or HIIT). We’re big fans of the grounding rooftop sessions, which are a great way to get outside if you’re stuck in a studio rut.

The Fit and Props: A knit set, a fleecy neon pullover, and fuzzy Birkenstocks to kick off before hitting the mat. For extra credit, add an EEG headband and start learning from the feedback.

The Locations: Venice and Topanga.

SWEAT YOGA

workout class

The Vibe: The infrared hybrid heater that Sweat uses is set to one hundred degrees Fahrenheit, so your muscles loosen up in a fraction of the time it would normally take. And while you’re getting to that sauna-level schvitz, the vinyasa flow class works your core, flexibility, and all-around mobility.

The Fit and Props: You’ll need a mat, obviously, and keeping a block and strap handy is always a good idea—but a moisture-wicking set is your best friend here.

The Locations: Sweat has studios all over LA, but if you’re based elsewhere (or just like getting your flow on from home), it also has a lengthy catalog of subscription-based on-demand classes.

The Vibe: The dance-cardio classes at FORWARD__Space get you moving (duh), sweating (big-time), and feeling really effing good. They’re what you’d get if you combined studio training and clubbing—a fifty-fifty split between athletic conditioning and bomb choreography, set to a really great playlist.

The Fit and Props: Hand weights and resistance bands (for during) and a muscle-soothing massager (for after).

The Locations: Attend in-person classes in New York City or start a subscription to stream any class you want.
