Beginning in Columbus and now painting the town red in various cities throughout the county, Colors & Bottles scratches the creative itch of the public with its themed art classes that leave no blank canvas unvarnished. The mobile painting service, which The Ellen DeGeneres Show tagged as a "hip, new, and fresh" activity, stages its events at local bars, wineries, restaurants, and art galleries, helping boost neighborhood economies while creating a hard-to-follow trail for begrudging pottery wheels. During three-hour classes, an artist plucked from the local art community leads students through the creation of a themed painting, such as a city skyline or something more abstract. For an extra splash of inspiration, some venues allow students to bring their own drinks, while others have refreshments available to purchase.

Club Form’s body buffs guide students of all levels through a weekly schedule of 18 exercise classes to cultivate strong, marble-cut physiques. Inspired by dancers’ graceful, stretchy limbs and ability to juggle boulders, Barre Form sessions build flexibility, coordination, and strength with 60 minutes of ballet-barre exercises. To increase balance and hasten recovery from injuries, small-group Power Plate and Kinesis workouts employ full gravity-resistance equipment and vibrating platforms that promote therapeutic muscle contractions. Up to seven fitness seekers choose their own resistance levels in one-hour cycling classes, which burn calories and tone thighs and calves. Like finding a piranha in a wading pool, the boot-camp-style workout known as The Bear makes hearts pound and sweat flow.
Endless rows of machines, friendly staff, and a central Washington Park location give the no-frills sweat shop a comforting neighborhood feel. Expect to find eligible, state-of-the-art machines; intensive and expert fitness coaching; and a bevy of classes such as yoga, power sculpt, abs and flexibility, and cardio hip-hop. This Groupon also includes an optional half-hour orientation with a friendly personal trainer. He or she can teach you a new workout or show you how to operate equipment.
Pilates of Cherry Creek offers a fully equipped studio for fitness seekers looking to firm up and shed pounds in a welcoming and supportive atmosphere. Opened in 2001, Pilates of Cherry Creek uses the tried-and-true Pilates method to strengthen cores and increase dexterity much more effectively than untangling the tedious knots of a Sega Master System’s controllers. During the 55-minute one-on-one lesson, students will receive attentive instruction to help overcome weaknesses and reinforce strengths. The Sunday mat class provides a supportive group environment where participants can obtain a challenging yet accessible workout that’s much more fun than attending boot-camp sessions with Fristensky, the circus strongman. Additionally, an experienced staff of flexible body benders guides students toward the elusive realm of tip-top form.
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 develop cardiovascular fitness, improve metabolism, improve flexibility and balance, and more with each go-round.
