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 up to 500 calories with each go-round.
Family connection is the driving force behind FatherBox, a company that strives to bring families together with its modern-day time capsules. Inside decorative boxes, families can preserve special moments that might otherwise slip away, including pictures of a school play or home movies. Inside each FatherBox, parents and kids can tuck away photos, letters, and meaningful trinkets before shipping their box back to the company. Boxes are then securely stored for a specified number of years. At the end of the FatherBox's hibernation, families can gather to rediscover and enjoy their precious memories.
