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 up to 500 calories with each go-round.

Heather, the owner of On The Fly Fitness Studio, grew up by California's coast, and still spends as much time as she can in the water. In fact, it was swimming that introduced her to the joys of fitness when she was young and led her to coach high-school water polo later. Soon, she realized she not only loved reaching her own fitness goals, she loved helping her students achieve their goals too?so she made a career out of it.
At her studio, Heather leads indoor cycling classes fused with other forms of fitness. She tries to incorporate strength training and flexibility training into each class while using her bikes to help people build endurance or conquer their fear of bicycle messengers. "We modify any movement to fit your personal comfort level as well as your ability level," she says. "We also keep a lot [of] variety so that no one workout is completely the same."
Beginning in 2001 as a small fitness operation in the basement of an office building, Pure Barre Dayton has since blossomed into a widely acclaimed, widely publicized approach to exercise with a nationwide following. Dancer, choreographer, and fitness buff Carrie Rezabek Dorr founded Pure Barre Dayton more than a decade ago in Birmingham, MI. Since then, Carrie has traveled around the country, hopping from gym to gym demonstrating the innovative program that draws techniques from ballet. Much like angering a witch with a penchant for frog spells, performing the Pure Barre Dayton technique can be a fast and effective way to transform your body. Motivating music slices through the 60-minute workouts, each of which utilizes a ballet barre and small isometric movements designed to burn fat and tone muscles.
For a half-century, patients have sat in Oakwood Eye Clinic’s exam rooms and, one eye at a time, started reading down from the big E. Today, its team of opticians—which boasts 78 years of combined experience—operates under the supervision of Dr. Park Studebaker, a former clinic instructor at Ohio State University’s College of Optometry. Oakwood’s staff treats both adults and children with scheduled and emergency eye care and can fit their oculars for contacts or more than 1,200 styles of designer frames. Patients unsure of what they need can use the online eyeglass guide, a quiz that gauges lifestyle, vision level, and ability to pull off a monocle in order to recommend frames and lenses.
Planet Fitness embodies a judgment-free zone where guests of all ages and fitness levels can sculpt their physiques with myriad aerobic and strength-training options within a friendly, down-to-earth atmosphere. Patrons may chisel, strengthen, and balloon muscles by pushing and pulling the extensive selection of brand-name equipment and free weights. With the help of a trained instructor, guests can design a custom workout program based on exercise history, medical background, and goals of completing an underwater bicycle race. Thirty-minute small-group classes concentrate on strengthening and toning specific body parts, and others promote salubrious bodies with full-body circuit workouts designed to give each and every lackadaisical muscle a Popeye-like infusion of metaphorical spinach.
