Spin involves a single instructor at the front of the class who leads the participants through routines that are designed to simulate terrain and situations similar to riding a bike outdoors. Some of the movements and positions include hill climbs, sprints and interval training. A well-trained instructor uses music, motivation, visualization and enthusiastic coaching to lead students through a ride that best suits their fitness level and goals. Most instructors will lead what is called an interval ride, where students will sprint, run, climb, and jump all in the same ride, but there will not be definable pattern to the exercises. In the early 2000s, "terrain-based" classes that simulate outdoor conditions (e.g., wind resistance) were introduced. Terrain-based classes are designed to improve a rider's outdoor skill set and increase endurance while providing an intense cardio-based workout
One of the major advantages of indoor cycling is that each participant can exactly control his/her level of intensity to suit ability or fitness level but still remain as a group together. The classes can therefore be heterogeneous. As an alternative, participants can judge their level of exertion relative to a perceived exertion scale. The instructor should advise a recommended exertion scale from 1 (no exertion at all) to 10 (maximum exertion). Each rider is permitted to dictate how hard he/she chooses to work with the instructor providing active and dynamic encouragement together with technical and practical advice throughout the class.
Besides burning (on average) between 300-500 kcal in 60 minutes,[4] indoor cycling also strengthens the muscles of the lower body. It tones the quadriceps and hamstrings, along with working the back and hips. It can be difficult to stay at the moderate level in a class that is geared towards more intensity.
Functional training has its origins in rehabilitation. Physical and Occupational therapists and Chiropractors often use this approach to retrain patients with movement disorders. Interventions are designed to incorporate task and context specific practice in areas meaningful to each patient, with an overall goal of functional independence.[1] For example, exercises that mimic what patients did at home or work may be included in treatment in order to help them return to their lives or jobs after an injury or surgery. Thus if a patient's job required repeatedly heavy lifting, rehabilitation would be targeted towards heavy lifting, if the patient were a parent of young children, it would be targeted towards moderate lifting and endurance, and if the patient were a marathon runner, training would be targeted towards re-building endurance. However, treatments are designed after careful consideration of the patient’s condition, what he or she would like to achieve, and ensuring goals of treatment are realistic and achievable.
Functional training attempts to adapt or develop exercises which allow individuals to perform the activities of daily life more easily and without injuries. in the context of body building, functional training involves mainly weight bearing activities targeted at core muscles of the abdomen and lower back. Fabio Martella wrote that most fitness facilities have a variety of weight training machines which target and isolate specific muscles. As a result, the movements do not necessarily bear any relationship to the movements people make in their regular activities or sports.
In rehabilitation, training does not necessarily have to involve weight bearing activities, but can target any task or a combination of tasks that a patient is having difficulty with. Balance training, for example, is often incorporated into a patient’s treatment plan if it has been impaired after injury or disease.
Kettlebell By their nature, typical kettlebell exercises build strength and endurance, particularly in the lower back, legs, and shoulders, and increase grip strength.[1][8][5] The basic movements, such as the swing, snatch, and the clean and jerk, engage the entire body at once,[8] and in a way that mimics real world activities such as shoveling or farm work.[Unlike the exercises with dumbbells or barbells, kettlebell exercises often involve large numbers of repetitions. Kettlebell exercises are in their nature holistic; therefore they work several muscles simultaneously and may be repeated continuously for several minutes or with short breaks. This combination makes the exercise partially aerobic and more similar to high-intensity interval training rather than to traditional weight lifting. In a 2010 study, kettlebell enthusiasts performing a 20-minute snatch workout were measured to burn, on average, 13.6 calories/minute aerobically and 6.6 calories/minute anaerobically during the entire workout - "equivalent to running a 6-minute mile pace".[9] Because of their high repetitions, kettlebell progression should start out slowly to build muscle endurance, support the joints and prevent injury.The movements used in kettlebell exercise can be dangerous to those who have back or shoulder problems, or a weak core. However, if done properly they can also be very beneficial to health. They offer improved mobility, range of motion and increased strength.
Circuit training is a form of body conditioning or resistance training using high-intensity aerobics. It targets strength building or muscular endurance. An exercise "circuit" is one completion of all prescribed exercises in the program. When one circuit is complete, one begins the first exercise again for the next circuit. Traditionally, the time between exercises in circuit training is short, often with rapid movement to the next exercise.

BootCamps never go out of style for good reason:
The military-inspired workouts burn serious calories and build strong bodies from head to toe.  Based on three fundamentals of training—cardio, strength, and agility, boot-camp workouts require little more than your body weight to achieve great results. Boot camps offer the intangible benefits of camaraderie, social support, and accountability that you won’t find in an anonymous and over crowed fitness class.   They are also far less expensive than hiring a personal trainer and fitness boot camps are way more fun than a traditional gym workout!

Yoga

Preparation
British Wheel of Yoga classes usually begin with a short period of quiet to bring students focus to the mat, preparing mind, breath and body for the practice to follow.  After this preparation students will be guided through a series of movements and sequences designed to limber the body and warm up muscles and joints in preparation for asana (posture) work.
 
Asana
Asanas (yoga postures) strengthen and tone the body, improving the flow of energy, helping to regulate the physical systems of the body and breath, and stilling the mind for meditation. The asanas used in a class will vary from teacher to teacher and depend on the abilities of the students and the style of yoga being practised. The objective in asana work is not how far you can stretch or contort your body, but to combine stability (stira) with ease/relaxation (sukha). BWY teachers are trained to modify asanas to individual ability and to address medical conditions ranging from pregnancy to arthritis. There are also specialist classes such as yoga for pregnant women, yoga for people with MS, or ME and yoga for those with cancer.
Working with the breath
Improving the quality of the breath not only increases vitality but also improves digestion, tones the nervous system and calms and concentrates the mind.  Yoga helps us develop control over our breath and this will be a key aspect of a yoga class where you will practice breathing techniques to develop awareness and full use of the breath. You will use your breath in asana to strengthen and improve your practice as well as employing the breath to still and focus the mind in preparation for meditation.
These techniques are developed into 'pranayama' exercises to help control and move prana (energy) through the breath. Prana means ‘vital’ or 'life force energy'. 
Not all exercises are suitable for those with respiratory or circulatory conditions, so be sure to advise your teacher of any such conditions before you start a class.

“If you would foster a calm spirit, first regulate your breathing; for when that is under control the heart will be at peace; but when breathing is spasmodic, then it will be troubled.  Therefore, before attempting anything else, first regulate your breathing on which your temper will be softened, your spirit calmed.”
Kariba EkKen 17th Century mystic 

“The mind is like a chariot, yoked to a team of powerful horses.  One of them is breath, one is desire. The chariot moves in the direction of the more powerful animal.  If breath prevails, the desires are controlled, the senses are held in check and the mind is stilled.  If desire prevails, breath is in disarray and the mind is agitated and troubled.” Hatha Yoga Pradipika.

History and philosophy
Most BWY teachers include some history and philosophy in their yoga classes, which will help you understand something of the context of the yoga you are practising. 

Meditation
While your class is likely to include a time of stillness and mindfulness, for example by focussing your awareness on the movement of the breath, or an image, sound or chant, your class may not include longer meditation practice.  If this is an area in which you are interested, discuss it with your teacher as he or she may be able to provide you with further information.  
Body Conditioning is balance and the strength of the tissues in your body rely largely on the amount of exercise you perform each week. This exercise increases the fitness of the tissues in your body, whether through building muscles, burning fat or increasing the efficiency of your organs. Muscle Conditioning One of the main aspects of a body-conditioning exercise is how it affects your muscle tissues. All conditioning exercises include some form of movement or resistance training. As this resistance is placed on the muscles, microscopic tears develop in the tissues, activating cells that build up the muscle tissues and conditioning the muscle group for similar exercise movements in the future.
Heart Conditioning Not only are skeletal muscles conditioned by conditioning exercises, but the heart muscle also is conditioned. When you exercise regularly, the need for energy in your body increases. For new energy to be created, plenty of oxygen needs to be available in your bloodstream. To transport this oxygen, your heart beats faster, speeding up the delivery of both oxygen and nutrients to your cells. Like any muscle, the harder the heart muscle works, the stronger it becomes. This increase in strength translates to the heart not having to work as hard to pump blood throughout your body. Lung Conditioning Conditioning exercises also help strengthen your lungs. In order to supply the bloodstream with the necessary oxygen needed to create energy, the lungs must inhale and exhale enough oxygen to sustain you during exercise. When you make conditioning exercises a habit, this increases your respiratory rate and helps increase the amount of time you can exert energy without running out of breath. Conditioning exercises also increase the overall health and strength of your lungs.
Recommendations for Adults
To benefit from body conditioning workouts, you must exercise regularly. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggest getting at least 150 minutes of moderately intense aerobic exercise and at least two days of strength-training exercise each week. Jogging, swimming, cycling, weight lifting, and playing sports are some activities you can do to help condition your body.
