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 Five Seasons Family Sports Club houses tennis courts, a dining area, fitness facilities, swimming pools, and a full-service spa under one roof. Within air-conditioned indoor courts or on outdoor clay courts, racquet slingers compete in friendly bouts to sharpen swings, refine backhands, and showcase grunting abilities. Members can also break a sweat in exercise areas speckled with modern cardio equipment and weights or cool off in an Olympic-sized pool with diving wells and wading areas. Before meeting others for a postgame beverage at the lively café, clients can wander to the spa for a relaxing massage or partake in a sports workshop to gain a firm grasp on game mechanics.
At 30-feet tall, the ceilings at Infinity Athletics can safely contain the towering formations and soaring handsprings that leap from the center's cheer and spring floors and 7'x14' trampoline. More than 350 athletes stream into the 12,000-square-foot gym to pick up tips from the certified instructors, who draw from their own experiences as former cheerleaders, coaches, and figure skaters to choreograph high-energy routines for nationally ranked competitors, as well as those who are just there for fun. To help budding stars improve, the center is equipped with a video-playback system that provides coaches and gymnasts with a visual tool to help them fine-tune each tumble, and it also helps them imagine what their routine will look like once the attacking alien warships have been green-screened in.
Though his roots (and sports allegiance) are planted in Philly, Dr. Tom Steigerwalt's path to chiropractic medicine took him trekking across the country. His time in Marietta, Georgia found him leaving Life University with magna cum laude status, a degree in chiropractic, and a beautiful wife named Kelly. From there, a one-year internship in St. Cloud, Florida instilled in him a desire to open his own practice and never experience sunburn again, and so he headed north to Avon to found Stags Family Wellness and help Ohioans live lives free of pain. Beyond alleviating back woes through spinal care and massage therapy, and providing peripheral neuropathy pain relief, his practice specializes in helping clients achieve total health through weight loss, and anti-aging treatments.

Classes are taught in Cleveland Exotic Dance's private studio, where purple window drapes reflect off the glossy, hardwood floors. Walk-ins are not allowed to ensure optimum privacy as students engage in all manner of sensual shimmies, shakes, and schticks. The two-hour sampler class covered by today's deal will showcase the undulations of belly dance, the not-just-for-kids side of hula-hoop dance, the acrobatics of pole dance, and the coy winks of burlesque. For blushing coquettes and demure dames, no nudity actually takes place, though techniques for vintage, burlesque strip tease and modern pole-spins will be covered.
