Find out which boutique fitness classes give you the most fat-burning bang for your buck
Cost per class: $25
Cost per calorie: 6.3 cents
Class time: 1 hour
This workout consists of three stations: the treadmill, the rower and strength training. The goal: to spend 12 to 20 minutes in the orange zone, aka at least 84 percent of your maximum heart rate. This helps your body continue to expend energy once you're done working out -- resulting in extra calories burned.
Upon entering the studio, you'll be hooked up to a heart rate monitor, and your numbers will be projected onto a screen in the studio (the fact that everyone can see your numbers -- even if they're likely focused on their own -- is surprisingly motivating). When the class is over, they email you a printout of your workout performance.
