New Life Fitness World motivates calories crusaders with personal trainers and more than 140 hours of group classes. Launch fitness plans in a one-on-one training session before bounding into any of the four locations' exercise courses, such as cycling, Zumba, and Piyo, a combination of yoga, Pilates, and trick yo-yoing. After land-based laps around the indoor tracks, or the aquatic equivalent in the indoor heated pools, fit fiddles can indulge in a sauna steam, a hot-tub soak, or a tanning session. Towel service and locker rooms facilitate transitions out of the gym, while childcare frees parents from the stress of pushing strollers while jogging on the treadmill.
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 500 calories with each go-round.
Originally constructed in 1871 as a schoolhouse, the Manchester Hill home is rich with local history, right down to its bricks that were individually packed by hand and fired on the property. Today, Manchester Hill is home to Patrick and Jenie McGrath, along with their two kids and a slew of animals, and the property's four verdant acres house a bed and breakfast, winery, and farm.
Cultivating a smattering of pesticide-free produce such as asparagus, roma tomatoes, rhubarb, and sunchokes, the McGraths offer locals a share of their harvest through CSAs and at the Clintonville Farmers' Market. Pastured poultry, natural pork, and farm-fresh eggs originate from animals raised on the farm with sustainable and humane practices, such as vegetarian diets and nightly readings of Goodnight Moon in the barn before bed. Meanwhile, Manchester Hill's winery produces a handful of artisan wines, including a pink catawba, a traminette, a dry zinfandel aged in american-oak barrels, and zinfandel dessert wines, as well as sparkling apple cider.
After leaving Cincinnati to study at Harvard Medical School and participate in internships and fellowships at Brown University and New York University, Dr. Shalini Gupta has returned to the place where she grew up, and now offers general and cosmetic dermatology and plastic-surgery services to the community. The goal of her practice, Dermatology Laser and Vein Center, is a simple one: restoring natural beauty. She does this with both surgical and nonsurgical procedures that tighten and restore the skin, contour the body's trouble spots, and rid limbs of unwanted tattoos or popped bubble-gum bubbles.
