The bowling alleys at Crossgate Lanes, Stone Lanes, and Eastgate Lanes invite gamers to send balls down gleaming runways in expansive, family-friendly facilities. Those weary of drawing straws to count the pins after each ball can take comfort in automatic scoring at all three locations. Each alley also hosts regular glow bowling, with lighting more luminescent than the water-wheel-powered disco balls of the 1970s. Patrons of Stone Lanes can also relax after their games in an onsite lounge, which is outfitted with three televisions.

Established in 1996 as Ohio’s first certified Pilates studio, BodyMind Balance provides years of experience and knowledge for fitness-seeking students. BodyMind Balance’s mat classes are taught in Classical Pilates style and conducted with nothing but a polished wood floor, a mat, and a lot of super-motivating eye contact. Beginner and advanced classes are available several times a week in the airy studio. Pilates strengthens, lengthens, and shapes the body by utilizing ancient Jedi techniques without the need for expensive, hair-singeing lightsabers and humid training on swamp planets. It also relieves stress, de-slouches one's posture, and increases lung capacity so that you can stop avoiding long sentences when you speak. This Groupon is also valid toward Gyrotonic group classes.

Since opening in 2003, Fusion MMA Cincinnati has participated in more than 75 mixed-martial-arts, kickboxing, and grappling events, transforming a number of its students into champions in those fields. But for individuals just looking to get fit and not necessarily to compete or stand up to an arrogant Rock 'Em Sock 'Em robot, the facility offers several classes open to people of all shapes, sizes, and ability levels. As heavy bags sway from the ceiling's exposed metal beams, instructors lead group sessions of Fusion MMA, which incorporates techniques from muay thai, kickboxing, and Brazilian jujitsu into one well-rounded workout. Fusion Fit, meanwhile, features a constantly evolving set of exercises, many of which incorporate functional movements and work with equipment.

From the deepest fibers in the carpet to the top of the ceiling fan, CRP Cleaning scours away dirt wherever it's lurking. The cleaners' goal is to make homes sparkle, as well as create a healthy environment that's free of toxins and contaminants. Their multiple services include general housecleaning, which sees the cleaners sanitizing kitchen appliances, living spaces, and bathroom fixtures; carpet cleaning, which is done by a low-moisture steam-cleaning method that is quicker than alternative methods; and tile and hardwood-floor cleaning. The staff also takes on offices and any other places where clients get work done or nap with their eyes open.

Apryl Pope never works out. Instead, this licensed Zumba instructor leads dance parties full of Latin and international rhythms that just happen to burn up to 1,000 calories an hour. She makes it easy for her students to follow her moves by encouraging them to have fun and covertly issuing telepathic commands.

In January 2014, temperatures in Cincinnati dipped as low as -6 ?F. The chill wasn't just unpleasant?it wreaked havoc on piping systems beneath the ground. But when a pipe froze and burst at The Breathing Room, the center's passionate owners and instructors decided to turn their bad luck into a blessing.

Instead of throwing their hands up in despair, they set to work making their yoga and Pilates studio into even more of a serene retreat than it had been before. They embarked on a full renovation, installing radiant floors to emanate therapeutic heat, and building a new second Pilates space and locker room. Today, the new and improved studio welcomes students to classes ranging from Booty Everywhere, a barre-fusion class that sculpts students' bodies with ballet-inspired movements, to Cardio Pilates, which centers around challenging Reformer workout techniques. An aesthetician, massage therapists, and Ayurvedic specialists have also joined the team, and a fluffy white canine named Silas regularly attends classes to help students fine tune their downward dog poses.
