Do It for the 'Gram

There's nothing like a fresh pair of sneakers or a cute yoga tank to get you motivated to work out, but, lately, clothes haven't been the only eye-catchers psyching us up. In the age of Instagram, studios are outfitting their spaces with must-'gram decor like neon-lit mantras, graffiti walls, and personalized equipment. It sets their space apart, and send our motivation through the roof. Not only will we get a good sweat, but we'll get to do it in a place that looks as good as we'll feel. Scope the nation's top must-see, must-sweat places for a picture-perfect #humblebrag. (And while you're at it, these are The Most Popular Fitness Hashtags On Instagram.)

Between the neon-lit mantras and giant murals in the 305 dance studio, the sheer number of photo ops makes us sweat—though not as much as the workout. (Try 305 Fitness' Dance Cardio Workout at home!)

The bright-turquoise hammocks never fail to make you feel cool and poised, even if you don't look it while practicing aerial yoga. Air LA's studio is hard to beat for a group pic where everyone is pretty much guaranteed to look acrobatically talented—and have equal face time in front of the camera.

As the name implies, any fitness level is welcome at EverybodyFights, but that doesn’t mean you won’t feel like a world-champion boxer during your workout. The dark atmosphere and cube-shaped lighting exudes the ultimate all-star experience.

A hot vinyasa class is a guaranteed way to put a smile on our face, but the murals at The Grinning Yogi do the trick before the class even starts. (Psst... See what other Exercises Can Boost Your Mood.)

Most cycling classes only offer a visual of the instructor—or yourself, in the mirror. We consider this view overlooking Austin just a little better. And with the weather being nice nine months out of the year, there's never a bad time to take a photo at Pure Austin.

Ultimate Healthy Living Experience, Chicago, IL

If the Fresh Prince designed a fitness studio, this would be it. With '90s era graffiti, turf, and no-frills equipment, UHLE is a classic place to get a good sweat—and pay homage to the days of Dunkaroos and Skip-Its.

Endorphin, Denver, CO

From the lobby to the studio, there isn’t an inch of Endorphin untouched by graffiti. And with a larger-than-life booty in the cycling room, it’s hard not to be motivated to turn up the resistance.

The neon-lit ceiling at Rise makes for a good picture, but its ability to flash and change colors to the rhythm of whatever song is playing makes for an even better experience—and boomerang video. (Spin Smarter with 9 Ways to Maximize Your Ride.)

Sometimes it’s not what’s on the walls, but on the bikes. The crew at BurnCycle know how to get festive for any holiday (Check out these 9 Ways to Maximize Your Ride next time you hit the studio.)

The checkered-floor is totally doing it for us. Like an old school soda fountain that you can do yoga above, Tough Lotus is hodge-podge in the best way.

Overthrow Boxing Club, New York, NY

Although the grittiest of the bunch, Overthrow is anything but plain. All the details make you feel like you stepped back in time, from the old-school Budweisers on display to the videos of Mohammed Ali and Sylvester Stallone playing on repeat in VCRs. The whole place is a time capsule of sweat, so choose your pic wisely. (No joke, boxing is The Best Workout for a Knockout Body.)

The natural light in Avant Barre makes the studio picture-perfect any time of day, but the golden hour (between 4 and 6 p.m.) makes the space feel ethereal.

Y7, New York, NY

Rap-yoga puns abound on the stairs and walls—we dare you to not snap a picture. Just refrain from shooting inside the room where the class is held because it's nearly pitch-black, which is great for mood, not for flash.

Liberation Yoga, Los Angeles, CA

There is an actual garden in the studio. Between that and the paint-chipped walls, practicing here is like practicing in a far-off oasis where at least our heads can escape from the buzz of the city.

We never missed having palm trees during a yoga session, but one look at NuFitness and now we don’t know how we’re going to practice without them. (No outdoor studio nearby? Check out these 7 Ways to Take Your Om Outside.)
