Zumba Pachanga offers up a steaming platter of exercise that's more enjoyable than riding manatees. Zumba combines thrumming Latin rhythms and music with simple, heart-pumping choreography. Owners Jamie and Felix Ojeda are bilingual, energetic, and certified Zumba enthusiasts itching to instruct fitness pilgrims on the rhythms of salsa, cumbia, bachata, samba, and more. Though Latin dancing brings forth collegiate memories of doing the Cotton Eye Joe during Dead Languages 101, in actuality it emphasizes movement through the hips and waist to build core strength and burn calories. Partake in this dance feast with the studio's flexible schedule, which offers classes six to seven days a week at a variety of times and includes the new Zumba Toning class that incorporates weighted sand sticks and strength training into traditional Zumba moves. Each class lasts for about 60 minutes.

SkateStart owner Patrick O'Toole started his skating career as many people do: by falling down constantly while skating a faulty board. He wanted to spend time with his skateboarding cousins, so his father bought him a generic, unresponsive deck from a big-box store. It barely rolled and always cancelled their playtime last minute to watch soap operas. His junky equipment and lack of knowledge kept him from keeping up with his peers. It wasn't until his father surprised him with a safe, professional skate set that his cousins finally slowed down and began teaching him the ins and outs of thrashing cement waves. Now in his 20s, Patrick makes it his professional mission to teach the next generation of skaters the proper techniques they need to enjoy the sport. He and his team of certified instructors use his patent-pending skateboard system that shows beginners where to place their feet to push off, perform an ollie, and avoid tripping a board's self-destruct countdown. In addition to imparting fundamental skills, their lessons also build up the confidence necessary to tackle more complex maneuvers.

Tran?s Fitness & Kickboxing?s trainers marry the ancient discipline of martial arts with the newest of newfangled technology to jumpstart each exerciser?s flagging willpower and defibrillate their steely resolves. Before each session, trainers hand out heart-rate monitors at the front desk so that students can begin to understand their peak performance and zero in on it. A 52-inch screen displays jumps in heartbeat frequency alongside the number of calories likely being burned by each participant. The system?s design tends to motivate people to push themselves, soldering strain and hard work to palpable results, and strengthening resolve during particularly fatiguing RealRyder and kickboxing sessions. Other classes forego the device in favor of old fashioned fisticuffs, including Brazilian jujitsu, which strengthens bodies and teaches people self-defense tactics such as how to leverage spindly limbs to best a bigger opponent.

When Royce Gracie defeated his opponents at three UFC matches, spectators took notice. That’s because they each had at least 50 pounds on the relatively compact competitor. But that was of little consequence since Royce was well versed in the family technique, known as Gracie Jiu Jitsu. This form of martial art emphasizes leverage over brute strength, and it’s the method taught to teens, women, and men at Low Summit Jiu Jitsu. Instructors cultivate sharp instinct in their students, so they can react to danger in an instant. In addition to Gracie Jiu Jitsu, the roster of fitness classes also includes boxing and women’s self-defense.

Linnane Wick of the Wick School of Irish Dance is an Oireachtas champion, meaning she's mastered the rapid footwork and spirited moves of Irish step-dancing. Irish step-dancing, which has been popularized by the stage show Riverdance, is characterized by fast and precise foot movements. Today, Wick and her team of instructors pass their skills on to others in classes. They teach students how to maintain the right ramrod-straight posture while performing reels and jigs, and demonstrate the importance of proper footwork to keep leprechauns from stealing your shoes.
