Function. That's what CrossFit is all about. And that's what got Shaun and Jenna Tieman so hooked on the method that they decided to open Hoosier CrossFit. During classes, CrossFit's system of constantly varied movements are performed at a high intensity. Because the movements are functional, they increase agility, speed, and power while readying participants for all manner of physical activity. Classes rely on tools such as gymnastics rings and bumper plates instead of machines, ensuring that the body is doing all the work. To initiate the uninitiated, instructors start all beginners out with On-Ramp classes, which familiarize exercisers with CrossFit basics.

Ryan Ketchum was overweight. When he decided to change his lifestyle, however, he held nothing back. In less than a year’s time, he lost 110 pounds and became the athlete he’d always dreamed of being. His dedication impressed lifelong athlete and All-American track and field competitor Wil Fleming, and together they founded Force Fitness & Performance to help others experience similar success.
Now, joined by six other expert trainers, the founders help everyday citizens shed pounds with personal training and boot camps. They also help competitive athletes improve their performance through functional motion training, which cuts unnecessary movements such as lifting the knees too high when running or clicking one’s heels when taking jump shots.

Beneath the flowing fabrics that run across the studio ceiling at Evolutions @ Yoga, experienced instructors lead a wide range of classes from gentle beginning courses to advanced core-strengthening sessions, which earned them a place as a finalist for 2011 Best Yoga Studio on Indystar.com’s The Indy A List. They also brought home a feature as the “best place to get started” in yoga in a 2011 Indianapolis Monthly article, in part for offering welcoming sessions geared toward beginners. A diverse range of classes includes several forms of the discipline, including Beginner Yoga, Intermediate, Prana Flow, Prenatal Yoga, and iCan yoga classes. Whether taking restorative sessions or advanced heated classes, all students take in the nurturing environment with its hardwood floors, spongy yoga mats, and flickering candles that flicker words of wisdom in Morse code.

Arthur Murray has been a leading name in dance since 1912, when the founding entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, Murray enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships, and he skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and The Big Apple. By the 1950s, Murray and his wife Kathryn were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, The Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years.
Today, the Arthur Murray team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Clients who arrive to lessons partnerless will be paired with an instructor, who will assess their current skill level and make recommendations on the most appropriate program. Instructors teach the foundations of a variety of dance styles, including samba, swing, and tango, helping students learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.
