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 600 calories with each go-round.

Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.

At Brown Chiropractic, Dr. Rebecca Brown and her team relieve spinal and nervous-system stress and empower patients to maintain good relationships with their backbones. After collecting new patient forms, a chiropractor begins the exam by gently palpating the spine to check for curvatures, any spastic muscles that are chaffing nearby nerves, and vertebral disks that may be considering a move to a stress-free career in the shin. A computer then analyzes circulation problems and motor nerve impairment, and controlled movement of achy joints screens for damaged tissue. Depending on information gathered during the exam and subsequent interviews of your childhood PE teachers, the doctor may administer x-rays to further scrutinize alignment and bone growth history before deciding on a proper course of treatment.
As detailed in the Portland Press Herald, Arcana Acupuncture, a holistic healing center and boutique, soothes the soul with something as complex as alternative medicine and spiritual workshops or as simple as sparkly original jewelry. The spacious lobby's green accent wall, exposed brick, and babbling fountain establish a bohemian yet modern atmosphere that continues beyond the gold curtains to private, soundproof treatment rooms that allow guests to retreat from the everyday with acupuncture, massages, and life-coaching sessions. After a workshop in aura hygiene and a tarot-card reading that reveals an impending decrease in fortune, guests peruse the boutique. Owner Kate Hebold handpicks its items, which include zodiac pocket watches, light-up steampunk cog rings, local crafts, and books.
