After living everywhere from Washington, DC, to Guatemala, the owners of Urban Moves wound up in Columbus, and decided to pursue their passion for fitness and entrepreneurship. They bought the gym from its previous owner, and transformed it into a membership-free fitness studio dedicated exclusively to exercisers working with trainers, either one-on-one or in group classes.

In the boutique studio, the team of personal trainers designs programs to suit their clients’ goals, whether they want to complete a 5K race or take a bite from the famed nougat peak of Mount Everest. The troupe also hosts a variety of group classes in a wide range of exercise modalities, from gentle yoga to high-tech Power Plate training—a bona fide miracle of modern science that shapes muscles through vibration.

Personal expression takes many forms at The Art of Yoga. In addition to hosting yoga classes throughout the week, the 3,000-square-foot renovated loft also serves as a gallery space that features works by a different area artist every month. This setting helps create a serene environment complemented by the graceful, seamlessly flowing movements of the students furthering their yoga practices. The studio's instructors mainly embrace the Vinyasa style and offer classes specially tailored to the abilities of pupils' various skill levels. Some classes emphasize maintaining alignment and using mindful breaths to transition between each asana, whereas upper-level lessons proceed at a more dynamic pace and incorporate far more self-levitating poses.

Before Zombie Buffet 5K, the zombie apocalypse was simply a tall tale played out in movies and among survival enthusiasts. Now, the deliciously horrific fantasy has been realized in the form of a fun and challenging 5K. First, runners must choose a side—either traverse the course as a runner, or move about the infected habitat as a sprinting or roaming zombie.

Each runner gets two health flags, which zombies try their undead best to steal. When runners lose both flags, they become zombies and must then hunt down their fellows in search of other flags. The zombie with the most flags in each starting wave wins and goes home with the happy knowledge that they are the fittest of the unfit. The top three runners in each wave who finish with at least one health flag still intact will win the running division.

Regardless of their alignment, all participants get swag such as a Zombie Buffet 5K T-shirt, a silicone bracelet, and dog tags, but the running winners and zombie winners are bestowed additional secret grand prizes.

Color Me Rad stages 5K races that transform runners into mobile rainbows by launching cheerful barrages of colored cornstarch. Each color station along the racetrack flings a new, nontoxic pigment at passersby, who wear white shirts to enhance the chromatic onslaught's costuming effects. Brilliant neon-blue, green, purple, and yellow clouds dapple participants along the way, and the race concludes with a prismatic finish-line finale as sprinters chuck colors at each other in celebration. The race's noncompetitive credo shifts the emphasis from speed to silliness, and a portion of its proceeds go to local charities.

Upon registration, each runner collects a Color Me Rad T-shirt, sunglasses, sponsor gifts, and a race bib. Though they don't receive a gift packet, runners younger than 8 years old can sprint for free, provided they have a waiver signed by a guardian and won't give in to demands for gold from confused leprechauns.

Donning their whitest T-shirts, The Cincinnati Color Palooza participants gather for a 3-mile fun run through downtown Cincinnati, during which they’ll be doused in a rainbow of nontoxic powdered hues cast into the air by enthusiastic volunteers. At the end of the run, competitors are granted their own colored powders to lob at friends, race organizers, and black-and-white television sets sitting in their attics. Runners are encouraged to keep the celebration going at the nearby Cincinnati Pride festival in Sawyer Point Park, where there will be beer, live music, and family activities. Those looking to run for a good cause can create a fundraising page for Color Palooza’s charity partner, Susan G. Komen Greater Cincinnati Association for the Cure, which helps in the fight against breast cancer. The The Cincinnati Color Palooza is free for children 7 and younger.

Typically, bubbles are associated with getting something clean—they remove stains from clothes, or lift dirt from elbows. But at Bubble Palooza, bubbles experience a bit of an identity crisis. Here, relieved of their duty as degunkers and loaded up with non-toxic color, they help transform a three-mile route into a vibrant, foam-filled wonderland. Along that route, and oftentimes buried beneath bubbles, participants clad in white run, walk, and skip their way from one end of the course to the other. In the process, those same participants are blasted by a bubbly rainbow of foam, becoming magnets for the greens, blues, and other colors carried by a seemingly endless deluge of bubbles. After the event, the color-saturated participants gather to celebrate at the Bubble Bash, where they listen to music, dance, and attempt to lure an untamed bubble into coming home as their pet.
