At the Paint Run, finishers proudly display proof of their efforts through the multicolored splatter art that covers their bodies from head to toe. As they sprint through a 1K or 5K course, staffers playfully wait to spray them with a colorful pallet of washable, nontoxic, and edible paint, rendering them as splattered as Jackson Pollock's studio's walls. The event benefits various local charities, and is presented by the MoveMEnt, a group dedicated to uniting communities while raising money for local schools, nonprofits, and social-based organizations.
Your body doesn't exist––in the meditative sense. But since physical being is important for day-to-day tasks such as working, paying bills, and pestering the tigers at the zoo, inBalance offers classes and workshops to maintain both mind and body.

The well-lit, open space is also used for teaching workshops to help students attain Pilates certification.

Chad Humphrey comes from a family of eaters, with a particular penchant for his mother's southern cooking. But when he tipped the scale at 275 lbs., he entered a bet with his brothers to see who could get to 220 lbs. the fastest. After cruising to 215 and taking the $100 prize, Chad was inspired to help other achieve the same transformative goals. Workouts at Chad Humphrey Fitness are based on the idea that group exercise promotes greater results and accountability. Each one-hour session blends a mix of metabolic and plyometric conditioning, including suspension rings, weight sleds, box jump, and medicine balls.
The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
