Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing With the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 500 calories with each go-round.

The themes of the seven fields sprawled across Boss Paintball’s 35 acres of woods are nothing if not eclectic. Teams may imagine that they are a posse of sheriff’s deputies fighting bandits in the saloon and bank of Dodge City, or a group of unfortunate soldiers caught in a battle in a spooky haunted house. They may even find themselves set head-to-head inside the Ark, a 40-foot boat that holds a maze, a flagpole mast, and two of every action hero. An astroturfed speedball field caters to fast-paced matches and forces players to duck behind inflatable cover on an open course.

Buck Baker Racing School allows speed-hungry race fans to strap into an authentic Sprint Cup stock car and take it out for a leisurely spin around the Atlanta Motor Speedway. The school's masters of acceleration will instruct motorpupils during a roughly one-hour pre-drive class. Afterward, take shotgun while wearing the provided helmet and fire suit along with tennis shoes inside a bona fide, previously driven Sprint Cup Ford, Chevy, or Dodge. You’ll ride along as your instructor powers around the speedway, during which they'll dish out informative tips on driving and snappy catch phrases such as, "Zounds! I own 300 shares of Apple stock!" Once rookie racers are ready, they'll switch seats with instructors and kindle rubber with 10 full laps around the speedway's 24-degree banked turns, imagining that 53,000 spectators are cheering them on as they take a respectable 17th place out of 12,000 cars.

Concord Speedway hosts roaring engines and screaming fans on 70 acres of tracks and racing activities. The NASCAR Whelen All-American Series gives horseless carriages of all shapes and sizes the opportunity for high-speed cruising, with five races per night on the Speedway's half-mile track. Let cheeks flap in pulse-pounding sympathy during fast-and-furious fours, followed by a stock race as pure as the driven snow, except with tire marks. Voracious vintage sportsman roadsters eat up the track with Kimmel cars hot on their tails. The concluding late-model stock-car race parades the most cutting-edge innovations in speed, handling, and parade-float sling-shotting. Saturday, April 16 is SpringFest, featuring longer races and cash prizes for winners.

In the 15 years since its founding, Fitness For Her has amassed a well-rounded collection of gym equipment and group classes in an encouraging studio where women jump into routines specifically designed for them. Ladies can work up calorie-burning sweats on cardio equipment, such as treadmills and bikes, as they take in favorite shows beamed in over the TVs or watch for cameo appearances by their favorite numbers on the heart-rate monitors. A weight-training area eases limbs into reps with Cybex machines, free weights, an abdominizer, and a multistation jungle gym to ensure no muscle group starts to feel left out. For a communal foray into fitness, personal trainers spur on groups to shake off calories in Zumba and Cardio Pilates classes, kindling a full-body burn in the aerobics studio. Postexercise, up to 10 weary frames can sweat out excess toxins or barbells lodged in pores in the dry-heat sauna. With senior classes, membership discounts for mother-daughter pairs, and free childcare services, the gym welcomes women at every stage of their sojourns into healthy living.
