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.

In 1991, Chandler youth were constantly in the news. Gang members were killing other gang members, turning children into statistics. Frustrated by the violence, Henry Salinas sought out gang leaders to ask why they spent their time on the streets instead of at youth centers. As a result of what he learned, he founded ICAN—Improving Chandler Area Neighborhoods—a free program set in local parks and gymnasiums, designed to keep youth active and making more of their lives.

Today, ICAN continues this mission on a larger scale. ICAN's youth programs include homework help, job-skills development, non-traditional learning programs, and social and leadership development. Recently, its Peer Leaders program filmed a public service announcement to point out the dangers of drug use by comparing it to shoe licking, according to an article in AZ Central. A group of teens took part in the project, which will appear before every film for the next four weeks at Harkins theaters in the Chandler Fashion Center and Chandler Crossroads.

For once, it’s OK to play in the mud: in each of the Terrain Mud Runs, racers compete in a challenging race through the muck of a 3- or 5-mile obstacle course. Before the race starts, you’ll store a clean change of clothes in a gear tent. Put on a race T-shirt (provided to each participant), affix a timing computer chip to your shoe, and then head to the starting line to race against the others, climbing on monkey bars, crawling through tubes, scaling cargo nets, and dodging soap salesmen. At the end of the course, you’ll head to the terrain village for an afterparty.

The awards don’t end there: the organizers hand out more specialized awards, such as fastest man and fastest woman in different age groups, rewards for best-dressed teams, and an award for the largest team. You’ll also get to enjoy beer, food, and music with family, friends, and other racers.

The Great Country Run is what might happen if a 5K was birthed in Nashville, raised on Hank Williams and barbecue, and taught there's nothing wrong with running in cowboy boots. Part race, part concert, and part festival, it?s a celebration of country music and cuisine in which everybody wins, no matter who crosses the finish line first.?

Decked out in an official bandana and race bib, contestants rush, saunter, and two-step their way through the five-kilometer course to the finish line, where a customized sheriff?s badge and a cold beer await. From there, the run transforms into a massive country-music festival, complete with live bands, steamy barbecue, and spirited games of cornhole.

There's no better way to cool down on a run than throwing some water on your face or, in the case of Drenched 5K, speeding through a misting tunnel, traversing a sprinkler minefield, navigating a foam zone, and zooming down a 100-foot slip 'n' slide. In cities across the country, participants of all fitness levels can hit the pavement during a soaking-wet sprint that culminates in an after-party with drinks, entertainment, and a huge water balloon fight inspired by Songkran, Thailand's soggy New Year's celebration. After the race, participants take home their race T-shirts and sunglasses. A portion of the proceeds goes toward local charities.

Most 5Ks and mud runs cater to adults. Adrenaline Run is not most 5Ks and mud runs. The just-for-teens event pits participants against natural and human-made obstacles, challenging them with rocky terrain, waterways, and homework. Some heats are timed, but youths uninterested in stats or clocks in general can join in untimed runs. After the challenging scramble concludes, racers head to the after-party for food, live music, and costume contests awarding the Most Creative and Most School Spirited ensembles. Both participants and spectators can take a gentler jaunt through a bounce-house course, or sit back and listen to performances while sharing mud-splattered stories.
