At each of its 12 locations in Kansas, the staff of Genesis Health Club strive to create a one-stop health-and-fitness center for the entire family. Supervised childcare programs entertain kids with arts and crafts, and Muay Thai classes help youngsters improve coordination and strength under the tutelage of a fifth-degree black belt. Adults can head over to yoga, Pilates, cycling, or MMA cardio classes, which are all led by nationally certified instructors. Guests can also take advantage of the rows of cardio and strength-training machines, or work one-on-one with an instructor to learn correct form and the best way to walk on your hands on a moving treadmill.
Unique Expressions' master caster bakes paintable ceramics from 7,000 molds on site while Cheryl guides burgeoning artists and casual colorists as they introduce hues to fanciful statuettes. Adults can bring their favorite beverages to class as they listen to music and take brushes to dachshunds and angels. Cheryl, a professional artist, then fires each piece in the kiln, ensuring that newly painted garden gnomes emerge uncracked and ready to guard tomato patches from ceramic rabbits.
Sun Resorts Tanning Salon gilds limbs with a fleet of UV tanning beds and private VersaSpa and Mystic tanning booths. To deliver even and radiant hues, the salon ensures that its beds’ lights are more closely clustered than a bunch of grapes driving a clown car and that the beds’ canopies aren’t overly arched. Patented spray-tan formulas imbue limbs with radiance without UV rays, and the salon’s Australian Gold tanning products help patrons become a beautiful shade of copper much like a crystal vase full of pennies.
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 off up to 500 calories with each go-round.
