At Let's Play in Spanish, children brush up on their Castilian communication skills through interactive, playful teaching methods. Each of the four weekly classes lasts for 50 minutes, which is enough time to master a few words and the first volume of Don Quixote. Kids ages 2–7 can matriculate with a trusted guardian, learning the language from native Spanish speakers. The program's nontraditional methods encompass singing, theater, games, and Peruvian toucan wrangling. Students can supplement lessons by purchasing educational CDs, DVDs, and books specifically designed for the curriculum. Check out the locations and schedules page to choose the same day, time, and instructor for each week's class.
The expert trainers at Energeia Boot Camp take personal stock in motivating each member to reach his or her fitness goals. Through a combination of fitness coaching, nutrition advice, and positive support, they take an active role in keeping their charges accountable to themselves. Their more than 30 boot-camp sessions per week meet morning and evening, rain or shine, leaving clients with no excuses to stay home to try to remain perfectly still for 24 hours. The sessions challenge members with an ever-changing lineup of routines that incorporate running and stair climbing, conditioning drills, and strength and resistance training that campers tackle at their own pace. This variety keeps muscles from becoming accustomed to the workouts, rendering them ineffective, and prevents workout burnout.
To further motivate their patrons into action, the staff members help them track their progress during regular fitness assessments. Clients can also sign up for personal-training sessions to make progress toward their goals in a one-on-one setting.
