Founder Susan Hauser discovered yoga after her husband unexpectedly died from cancer and found comfort in the spirituality of the practice. Shes since combined that with the character building discipline of traditional workouts and the energy has carried through online. Now instead of being on a mat in a packed studio, you can be a square on a packed screen every day at 9:15 a.m.

The convenience of exercising at home is nice, but the energy from group fitness is unparalleled. Fortunately, Orangetheory is one of the studios taking that momentum outside. The heart-rate based interval workout thats worshipped by scores of devotees is now holding 28 classes a week in front of its normal space in Bon Air Center. Equipment is thoroughly cleaned — for 15 minutes! — between sessions.
