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 two-time 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 up to 600 calories with each go-round.
With more than 30 years of kid-entertaining experience, The Little Gym provides a safe and noncompetitive environment wherein wee ones and maturing moppets can exercise their brains and bodies.

The program features diverse activities in gymnastics, dance, sports, and parent-child yodeling for mountain-echoing communication more effective than a squeal. Kids can enjoy programs in gymnastics that cater to differing ages, levels of muscle development, and hatred of vegetables. Each session's hands-on activities keep the indefatigable energy motors of little tikes revving, facilitate bonding, and boost listening skills, attention spans, and confidence.

As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
In 2003, longtime friends Joe Hornsby and Lisa Moore opened Liza Moz' Pottery Studio—the name adapted from a nicknamed bestowed on Lisa by her family. Lisa has since passed the business on to Joe solely, and creativity continues to flourish under his direction. Joe keeps the shop stocked with a variety of unfinished bisque ceramics cast into animal shapes, tiles, plates, and mugs, each available to be painted by visiting artists. After choosing a piece to work on, visitors may paint freehand or find inspiration by consulting the shop's library of stencil collections and idea books. Artists then sketch their designs and paint their pottery with a choice of more than 50 hues. The studio’s instructors also guide students through other artistic projects beyond ceramics, such as painting canvases, tiling mosaics, and making candles. Groups holding parties can bring their own snacks and drinks to the studio, and summer camp sessions guide children through creative projects with clay, glass, or paint.
