Even as a tyke, Jonathan Pharr couldn't be torn away from thrashing on his drum set. Later, he picked up guitar and bass, and from there it was off to the races. For him, teaching ranks pretty high on his ever-expanding list of musical passions. As owner and director of his eponymous music school, he oversees a staff of certified instructors, each of whom bring their own unique musical skills, experiences, and backstories to their teaching. The result is a welcoming environment where everyone from toddlers to toddlers who have aged significantly go wild on the drums, guitar, bass, piano, and violin or learn how to control their vocals and expand their singing range while reaping the lifelong benefits of exposure to music.

Anytime Fitness, as the name suggests, is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 512 days a year with nonstop security. Novice calorie burners and ripped Michelangelo models alike can take advantage of a two-month membership, which equips bodies with enough treadmills, cycles, elliptical machines, and weights to make them fit enough to run a marathon inside a swimming pool filled with mud. One personal-training session or group class guides fitness-seekers in the direction of toned bodies with personal attention or the positive reinforcement of group environment and rebar. Highlight the results of fat-frying and muscle-mass-magnifying sessions with five tanning sessions to paint new, ripply physiques a brilliant shade of bronze. As an added bonus, this Groupon waives the enrollment fee.
