A freestanding climbing wall with craggy angles and multiple inclines steals the spotlight at Vandalia Recreation Center by soaring to 27 feet up the middle of an atrium. But climbing is far from the 58,000-square-foot center’s only attraction. Gravity-bound members burn calories at a fleet of cardio machines and build muscle with strength equipment and free weights in the fitness center, and a three-lane, 1/16-mile track helps runners train for catching the gingerbread man. At the Aquatic Center, a zero-depth entry pool welcomes swimmers who rack up laps and children who whoosh down a twisting waterslide and through a giant frog’s mouth or frolic in waterfalls. A vortex and bubble bench set the stage for aquatic fitness, useful for independent exercise or formal classes.

Aquatic aerobics sessions join plenty of other organized activities on the center’s bustling schedule of fitness classes. Students stretch during yoga, break a sweat to the Latin beats of Zumba, and pump their legs through spinning classes. While parents work up a sweat, their offspring head to childcare at Ricky’s Tiny Tikes (ages 6 months to 4 years) or Luther’s Jungle indoor playground. Here, children 4 and older clamber through the jungle-themed slides, tubes, and nets with the help of a bi-level play structure or polish their da Vinci forgeries with paper and crayons.

In January 2013, sisters Angie and Ashley Webb set out on a long run. Their destination? The moon. True, they didn't do it all at once. And they had a lot of help?after initially setting a 1,000-mile goal, they found that friends, family, and runners from around the world wanted to get in on the action. The group eventually hit a new cumulative goal of reaching 238,855 miles?the distance between earth and the moon.

Today, people from more than 40 countries call themselves Moon Joggers. Each of them contributes to the organization's collective goal by jogging, running, or walking, then logging their miles in the online database. Back in 2013, the group made it to the moon by May 23, but the journey didn't end there. They're expanding their goal every year, currently aiming for Venus in 2014. As team members contribute at their own pace, they also hit checkpoints along the way and climb in the rankings, earning the right to be called Captain while remaining entirely unqualified to run a starship.

Shoes clap cross the wooden floor, sequins sparkle in the stage lights, and ringlets bounce with every dancer's leap. Richens/Timm Academy of Irish Dance keeps these sights and sounds alive and well. Imparting tradition to its students while teaching them how to master the techniques of Irish dance, the school has produced 12 North American champions, 3 all-Ireland champions, and 2 Senior Men's World Champions in the past three decades. It's hardly a surprise, though, considering the school was founded by Ann Richens, a Dublin native, and is led today by John Timm, the 1993 Senior Men’s World Champion.

Classes start with beginners lessons and introductory workshops to help students get a feel for the motions and remember where their feet are located, before they launch into the full routines of more advanced classes. Once they reach senior status, they can perform at the Dublin Irish Festival and the Indy Irish Fest, as well as a variety of venues across the region.

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.
