Indy may not have been the first city to welcome in the boutique fitness craze, but it’s certainly filled with incredible options now. Whether you’re a cardio queen, a Pilates princess, or a sovereign of strength, these are some of the local fitness gurus you should follow on Instagram before hitting up their classes.
Happy sweating, ladies.
Maria Romaine, @likethelettuce
Get it? Like the lettuce? Clever name aside, Health Coach and Fitness instructor Maria Romaine Brace is serious when it comes to pushing that extra mile on the spin bike but she’ll never judge you for enjoying the icing on the cake now and then (in moderation, of course.)
Find her at Orangetheory or YMCAs around Indy.
Jamie Clark, @JAMIECLARKFITNESS
One thing is for certain, if you’re taking one of Jamie Clark’s classes—spin, sculpt, or yoga—you’re going to hear a killer playlist that inspires all of her students to work that much harder. The Indy native first fell in love with fitness via her mom’s love of ’80s Jazzercise and it all just stuck.
Find her at Fit Flex Fly.
Bailey Croke, @BAILEYJ.C
As a former dancer, Bailey Croke’s Pilates skillset is almost innate. Take her Core HIIT and mat classes to group and private reformer classes, and you’ll start feeling stronger and longer after just a few classes. She’s also got you covered in those pre- and post-natal months.
Find her at Invoke Studio.
