Though its name may conjure fantasies about sprinting down crowded streets or bench-pressing buses stalled in traffic, Urban Active Fitness grants its members abundant space in which to spread out and follow their workout proclivities. At dozens of locations across the Midwest and South, members can sculpt their bodies in whichever manner they choose—from personal training with resistance machines and free weights to group classes in cycling, Zumba, and Pilates. A number of group classes draw on the gym’s urban theme for inspiration. Urban Iron, for example, focuses on building muscles that resemble the cast-iron beams of skyscrapers, and Urban Yoga closely imitates the poses necessary to squeeze onto a subway train at rush hour.

The artists at Wine and Canvas awaken their students’ inner Rembrandts and Van Goghs with classes that pair a featured painting with specialty cocktails and wines. The mobile studio’s monthly calendar includes themed classes in which instructors expound on the nuances of painting Parisian street lamps, Japanese flowers, or Venetian cityscapes. The master painters—many of them local artists—provide step-by-step instructions while students mimic each stroke and periodically dip their brushes into glasses filled with crimson cabernet. Each of the studio’s various drink-friendly venues boasts a specialty libation selected to incite creativity or conversations with fellow painters. When the artistic frenzy concludes, students return home with a finished masterpiece large enough to conceal any wall safe or mirror portal.

S&G Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?s instructors use martial arts to help students get into shape while also improving their discipline, motivation, and self-esteem. During Brazilian jiu jitsu and judo classes, students learn self-defense techniques that can successfully take a larger opponent to the ground using joint-locks, chokeholds, and bear hugs. The muay thai kickboxing class teaches fighting techniques that utilize fists, elbows, knees, shins, and feet. The studio also offers a special kids' jiu jitsu program, which tailors lessons to a younger age level and helps kids build social skills and self-confidence.

Pinot's Palette is less an art studio than it is a way for people to enjoy a libation-filled night out with friends, one that happens to include a painting project. The painting sessions evoke adults' inner artists whether they have any painting experience or not, encouraging conversation and good cheer while painting and sipping. Some locations feature a BYOB policy while others serve beer and wine from the bar. Each session features a predetermined painting—from flowers and animals to known classics such as Van Gogh's Starry Night—which each participant tackles from their own artistic angle under the guidance of an experienced instructor.

Dayton and Northmont Music Lessons' instructors teach every aspect of music, from composition and theory to improvisational group classes. Mostly, they work one-on-one with students ages 5 and up, starting with the basics. They teach their charges how to read music and translate the notes on guitars, pianos, ukuleles, saxophones, or even into song. Students get the chance to compose their own pieces in comprehensive song-writing sessions. They can also try their hand at forming impromptu bands in classes such as Thursday afternoon's weekly Jazz Lab Band, which requires students to already possess some skill and also a lab coat.
