With fall finally here and cooler temps right around the corner, Hotworx is the perfect place to keep warm this fit fall. Classes such as hot HIIT, hot yoga and hot cycle are held in temperature-adjustable infrared saunas where you work out and sweat out. My recommendation? Hot pilates to strengthen your core. Make sure to bring plenty of water— you’ll need it.


7. Orangetheory
