The kickboxing classes at Explosive Sports MMA & Fitness are deceptively named—they cover much more than kickboxing. Beyond training on speed bags and heavy bags, students work with weight poles, dumbbells, and medicine balls in exercises that range from plyometrics and strength training to MMA moves. For more combative workouts, full-contact MMA classes blend muay thai, jujitsu, and kenpo with kickboxing and boxing, creating a self-defense system that’s more comprehensive than giving threatening people big hugs. Age-appropriate classes for kids round out the fitness studio’s class schedule.

When Manga African Dance gets going, the whole room turns into a swirl of sound and color. Ramatu Afegbua-Sabbatt founded the dance troupe in 1990 to share her passion for indigenous African culture. She hasn't had a difficult time turning people on to high-energy dance routines that incorporate drums, colorful clothing, and songs from across the African continent. While performing at schools and community organizations, the group teaches audiences about everything from the ceremonial music of Guinea to the rhythmic footwork of Nigeria. In addition to these performances, they host dance and drum classes for students of all ages and foot sizes.

In group and individual training sessions, coaches help exercisers to tone their muscles, elevate their heart rates, and get stubborn gum off the bottoms of their sneakers. Mobile training programs get clients moving, whether they're in their office or their home. Finally, nutritional counseling and the supplements in specially curated "Body Boxes" aim to improve dietary health.
